Il Fornaio Chooses BinWise as its Enterprise Beverage Management System
BinWise continues to prove it is best in class
SAN FRANCISCO, May 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — BinWise, Inc., the leading cloud-based beverage management program, is pleased to announce that Il Fornaio will implement its enterprise software, having chosen BinWise over other providers. With twenty-plus authentic Italian restaurants around the U.S. in addition to retail markets and catering facilities, Il Fornaio has become a popular and recognizable culinary brand.

“When the value of our product is confirmed by customers like Il Fornaio, I know we have a superior solution,” says BinWise CEO Doug Hickey. “Not only do we provide seamless beverage management, we help our clients from top to bottom by adding to top line revenue and saving them money.”
