Product Updates: June 2020
Our team has been busy with some notable changes to the ShipCompliant product over the past couple of months, in addition to our ongoing work to maintain accurate, up-to-date compliance. Here are highlights from two of our recent major initiatives.
New York PRO launches
On the product registration side of the business, we launched our PRO capabilities for New York, the largest state for brand registrations at nearly 40,000 active brands.
This functionality is particularly significant as it will expedite the beverage alcohol registration process in New York from a matter of 4-6 weeks to a matter of hours. That’s a major impact for enabling products to get to market as swiftly as possible. With New York going 100% online for product registrations with PRO, state officials will now be able to review and approve state registrations quickly and efficiently—importantly, in this time of covid-19, while working from home.
DtC product expansion in the works
Did you know our team has been working on expansion of our direct-to-consumer product offerings beyond wine to support DtC beer, spirits and cider? Our regulatory team is in the process of researching each state to solidify our understanding of their rules and regulations regarding these additional product types. In turn, our product team stands ready to roll out support for real-time tax collection, compliance checks, and reporting for these new channels in the coming months.
