BevQuery allows beer and wine retailers to determine the availability of specific products in their location by submitting queries. Queries cross reference a database that uses the retailer's location to determine which, if any, distributor carries the brand a retailer (or their customer) is looking for. If a distributor is registered to carry the brand, BevQuery allows the retailer to input specific information about the wine (vintage, variety, etc.) and transmits the query to a distributor's representative who then responds via the software with inventory availability. Use of BevQuery requires pre-registration at the BevQuery website.
