If the news from Sovos last week caught your eye (expanded audit protection for DtC shipping customers), then you’ll also want to check out digital solution provider Craftpeak, which just integrated Sovos ShipCompliant into its e-commerce services.
“We are thrilled to offer this capability to craft breweries looking to connect with customers in new markets without having to navigate the nuances and complexities of DtC shipping on their own,” explained Craftpeak CEO John Kelley.
The ascendance of digital revenue streams within the craft beverage marketplace has left many small business owners struggling to surmount regulatory hurdles in fulfilling direct-to-consumer demand. Sovos ShipCompliant adds a turn-key compliance solution to the digital sales arsenal that Craftpeak makes available to craft beverage producers and retailers, including full-service e-com platforms, point-of-sale payment processors, inventory management and digital marketing services.
Ultimately, the combined suite allows craft alcohol brands to expand their reach nationally, alleviating compliance concerns typically shouldered by small business owners.
With Sovos ShipCompliant integration, Craftpeak has completed a closed-loop online infrastructure for taking heavily-regulated industry segments such as craft beverage alcohol from production directly to the end consumer under the auspices of one service provider — enabling its clients to scale their retail sales channels.
