New collaboration will increase marketplace access for on- and off-premise beverage alcohol retail customers across New Jersey
(March 23, 2022, Elizabeth, NJ and Chicago, IL) – Allied Beverage Group, New Jersey's largest and most comprehensive wine and spirits distributor, and Provi, the fastest-growing ecommerce marketplace for the beverage alcohol industry, today announced a new collaboration to increase marketplace access for on- and off-premise retail customers across New Jersey. The collaboration will provide a more flexible and efficient ordering experience, giving customers access to Allied’s current portfolio with up-to-date inventory, real-time product discounts and a direct line of communication to sales reps, all through Provi’s all-in-one marketplace.
“Our goal is to offer our customers the greatest possible access to our products,” said Corey Bronstein, general manager, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Allied Beverage Group. “To that end, our collaboration with Provi will allow us to showcase our broad product portfolio on a marketplace that we are confident will continue to become more important to the customers we serve. The Provi team has proven their priority is on customer experience and ease of use, which aligns perfectly with our operating principles; thus, collaborating with Provi so deeply just makes sense.”
By integrating Allied’s diverse portfolio of more than 15,000 SKUs into Provi’s marketplace, Allied sales reps will now be able to complete entire ordering processes with customers in one, streamlined place. Allied customers can access the site 24 hours a day, placing orders at times that work best for them, while Allied sales reps can keep track of incoming orders and communicate directly with accounts, allowing for more time to build relationships with new and existing customers. As part of the new relationship, Allied will have its own dedicated space within Provi’s marketplace, showcasing new releases, seasonal selections and announcements in a branded experience optimized for Allied’s customers.
“As a representative of the product lines of some of the world’s leading beverage alcohol suppliers, we are proud to partner with Allied Beverage Group to provide its sales reps and customers with a more effective and efficient beverage ordering process,” said Andrew Levy, senior vice president of strategic partnerships at Provi. “Allied’s stellar reputation across New Jersey and efforts towards providing an omni-channel ecommerce solution to its customers make it an ideal partner in our mission to better connect all three tiers of the beverage alcohol industry.”
