Vines OSWinery eCommerce and wine club software
Vines OS is integrated with FedEx and UPS for real-time shipping cost lookup. There’s no need to create or set up complicated tables for shipping zones and lose money on shipping, or worse, lose orders because shipping costs are simply too high. In addition, Vines OS calculates the shipping upfront so that your buyers can see it before going through the entire checkout process.
Vines OS specializes in building “search engine friendly” pages for your website. After your site is live, typically within a couple of weeks you will start to see rankings for your most important keywords. Vines OS helps you figure out what they should be, based on research we do on your keywords, what you produce, and your location. Vines OS shows you how to do more search engine optimization yourself, if you want to do additional pages, or target other keywords that have high traffic associated with them.
This initial training is included in the setup cost. Vines OS will send you weekly website ranking reports showing you exactly where your site is ranking in Google, Yahoo and Bing for your relevant keywords.
Vines OS is responsible and responsive. There is no third-party involved, there is never anyone else to point to for problem solving – if there’s ever an issue, Vines OS usually reply and solve it within 24 hours, if not sooner. Vines OS manages your design, your website, your hosting, your e-mail, and your search engine rankings.
You never need to figure out whom to go to for what it’s all under one roof.

Vines OS is not limited to what we can do in our designs for we are not template based. Your design can be as creative or minimalist as you desire. The sky is the limit. Vines OS can take up an existing design, or we can create a custom design tailored exactly to suit your needs and specifications. Vines OS does it all for you – we don’t tell you to send us CSS files (nor do we expect you to even know what this means), or head to an outside design firm. Vines OS is a one-stop shop.
This project included many mini projects within and ultimately all had to be intact and interlinked together. The target users here were wineries who would be using the application to set up their own online wine shops. We had to comply by many security standards plus the biggest challenge was to master every field in the project, may it be web designing, development, compliances, hosting or search engine optimization.
We built the app using Seagull framework which is highly mature OOP framework for building best web, command line & GUI applications. This was the best choice for this app.
