A New Chapter for Handoff

Acquisition creates beverage industry’s first-ever supplier-to-consumer tech suite.

We’re thrilled to share that we have been acquired by newly-merged Ft.Collins, CO-based Encompass Technologies and Portland, OR-based Orchestra Software.

We couldn’t be happier about taking our company to the next level with the expertise and reach of our new partners Encompass and Orchestra. Once fully integrated into Encompass and Orchestra’s network, our combined technologies will create an opportunity for the alcohol industry, for example, to track a single hop or grain yield all the way to the consumer who purchases the finished product. This is an unprecedented level of supply chain insight for the entire beverage industry.

Handoff's business will run as before the acquisition, but with new resources and national reach. This means we will soon expand the number of retailers in our network, allowing Handoff to be available in nearly every major U.S. metropolitan area.

We’ve always been committed to disrupting the online alcohol space with products and solutions designed to make it simple (and wildly enjoyable) for drinks to be delivered. Our new partner stands with us as we usher in a new era of eCommerce in the alcohol industry. Together we will make Handoff the new standard in alcohol delivery software.

Handoff isn’t going anywhere. We will continue to operate under our unique brand while continuing to support our customer base nationally. As this transition continues, we’ll be releasing a ton of innovative product updates, and launching some kickass partnership initiatives.

You may see some changes to our terms of service and privacy policy over the coming months as we integrate with Encompass Technologies. These changes are generally intended to make them easier to understand and to reflect our acquisition by Encompass Technologies.

This all means that we get to keep doing more of what we love to do and reach many more beverage seekers while we do it. Our team couldn’t be more fired up to continue building products and designing solutions that make it simple (and wildly enjoyable) for drinks to be delivered.

Your Handoff account will continue as before, so just sit back, relax, and let us take care of the drinks 🖤 🍻
