Watson’s Wine

Since its opening in June 1998, Watson’s Wine Cellar is now the largest specialist wine retailer in Central Hong Kong.

The digital signage solution comprises of an interactive touch screen and a 42 inch LCD screen at the point of purchase. The interactive software allowed the customer to obtain further information on a wine by scanning the wine bottle’s barcode with the barcode scanner, browsing the wine categories or manually entering the code from the wine bottle.

My involvement in the project included:

• Designing, creating, populating and deploying the Microsoft SQL database which contained detailed wine information.
• Developing a playlist generator middleware for the bespoke digital signage software.
• Helpdesk support and health checking with staff in Hong Kong.
