The Raydius story

Why use Raydius?

Many wineries, especially smaller and medium-sized family-owned operations, lack the in-house expertise, personnel or time to manage and maintain their online presence.

These services are typically out-sourced at inflated costs to third parties with little or no understanding of the wine business.

In most cases the lack of up-to-date content on websites, outdated design and security elements and the absence of an e-commerce platform lead to poor user experiences, resulting in customers becoming disillusioned with the brand, and a loss of potential income for the producer.

Raydius is the brainchild of Cape Wine Master Raymond Noppé, who identified a growing need in the South African Wine Industry to assist wine brands with the set-up (or refurbishment) and management of their websites and e-commerce platforms.

Radius (n.) – from the Latin meaning staff, stake, rod; spoke of a wheel; ray of light; radius of a circle (a straight line extending from the centre to the circumference)
Raymond was referred to Aqua IT Consulting towards the end of 2012, by a leading local brand consultancy, for the design and hosting of a website for the winery he worked for at the time.

Since then, Martlè Heyns, the owner of Aqua IT Consultancy, and Raymond, have collaborated on a number of different wine related website design projects.

Raymond’s expertise in the wine industry, coupled with Martle’s team of service-oriented web professionals, has resulted in the creation of wine related websites that have truly realised a return on the investments which were made.
