New partnership introduces the leading ecommerce beverage platform into the golf course, club and resort vertical while streamlining operations for facility beverage management teams
CHICAGO, February 22, 2022 - Provi, the fastest-growing ecommerce platform for the beverage alcohol industry, announced today a new partnership with ClubProcure, the industry leading group purchasing organization serving the golf and country club industry. The partnership will integrate Provi’s marketplace into the ClubProcure site, streamline alcohol beverage ordering and increase efficiency for ClubProcure members.
“As another digital platform designed to provide a one-stop-shop to its members, ClubProcure makes an ideal partner for Provi,” said Grant Douglas, head of enterprise accounts at Provi. “By adding the Provi marketplace to ClubProcure’s Top Shelf Bar Program, golf course beverage managers will now have the ability to order alcohol beverages at the same time as their other equipment and supplies, streamlining the ordering process and saving valuable time and resources.”
Currently, more than 450 golf and country clubs are enrolled in ClubProcure’s Top Shelf Bar Program, which provides valuable cost-saving and revenue-driving benefits to its members. Through this partnership, members will now have access to Provi’s centralized, online marketplace for placing all of their alcohol beverage orders. From courses with full banquet services to those with a single beverage cart, members will have the ability to manage their entire beverage inventory, order and communicate with their distributor sales representatives within a single platform.
“We are excited to further enhance our Top Shelf Bar Program with the addition of the Provi platform” said Mike Sawyer, vice president of business development at ClubProcure. “The ability to order all of the beer, wine, and spirits needed for the bar operation from a single platform makes so much sense for operators. The fact that it costs them nothing out of pocket makes it a no-brainer.”
