Project Overview

GrapeStars partnered with us to develop a complex mobile marketplace in a highly regulated industry. Without a lot of technical expertise on their staff, they needed more than developers. They needed a team of experts to manage the project and minimize their frustrations.

Unfortunately, the company had already dealt with unfortunate development experiences with this same project. Their goals and ambitions were clear, however, they had not yet found a partner with the right capabilities to build their high-end platform.

Luckily, they found us through a referral from trusted advisors, and within 9 months Concepta developed an e-commerce platform and mobile app in compliance with US and state liquor laws and integrated third parties' platforms for payment, delivery, process and distribution.

Client Experience

Before this platform was released, celebrities had serious legal barriers to market and sell their wine and spirits brands directly to customers.

Thanks to GrapeStars celebrities don’t need to acquire liquor licenses or hire a distributor. Artists can simply use their social media channels to connect users to their endorsed brands.

Consumers can easily access products through a single click and have the beverage of their choice delivered to their homes.

At the moment, there are more than 200 major celebrities' wines and spirits being sold on the platform.  GrapeStars’  launch campaign included big names like   George   Strait,   Matthew Mcconaughey, Lenny Kravitz and Sarah Jessica Parker.

“The result, as you can see, is pretty spectacular.

“We’ve dealt with competent development firms but sometimes you are just stuck and they just didn't know the answer or didn’t have the resources. And I think that’s what we saw with Concepta, you have the technical expertise in house first of all, you’ve got people that really know what they’re doing, and if they don’t, they know where to look to find the answers.”

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
