BevAccess has launched its communications, technology and ecommerce services in the state of Texas. The company, publishers of the Texas Beverage Journal, is the first fully consolidated global Industry Exchange to support buyers, sellers and marketers of beverage alcohol with a more efficient and easy-to-use ecommerce solution for their businesses.

BevAccess is currently taking registration for membership from licensed Texas retail buyers through an introductory membership program, which includes subscription to the Texas Beverage Journal. Jim Carrier, Vice President of Sales for BevAccess stated, ``Thanks to the partnerships BevAccess has established with Texas wholesalers and retailers, we have up-to-the-minute product information available for Texas licensees to research and purchase wine, spirits and beer. The BevAccess exchange is open for business in Texas!''

``Glazer's is very supportive of BevAccess' launch in Texas. BevAccess has emerged as the premier communications and technology exchange for the beverage alcohol trade, and is in a unique position through their local publication and sales force to effectively bring our customers online in Texas. We look forward to realizing the benefits of online exchange,'' said Barkley Stuart, Executive Vice President for Glazer's Wholesale Distributing Co.

In addition to Glazer's, the company has partnered with Republic Beverage Co., Block Distributing and Faust Distributing Co. BevAccess began processing transactions in the Texas market on November 1st.

Among the leading chains that are participating in the exchange is Centennial Fine Wine & Spirits. Greg L. Wonsmos, President of Centennial Fine Wine & Spirits and President of the National Association of Beverage Retailers added, ``What excites me most about the introduction of BevAccess in the Texas market is that it will provide an efficient solution to a complicated, labor intensive, order entry and fulfillment process.''
