Platform Development Road Map

We are often asked by current and prospective customers about when (or if) features they would like to see built into the Bottlenose platform will be available for use on their eCommerce stores. We believe our customers have a right to know when we believe a feature is on track to become part of the Bottlenose solution. Our goal is to make your online wine and spirit shop to be as successful as you want it to be. We know this requires us working with merchants to understand their business needs and to build the tools that allow our platform to support those business cases.

And for all of these reasons, we are committed to being transparent with our platform development roadmap.
