Bar Cop is much more than the typical app that takes inventory by estimating how much product is left in a bottle. Bar Cop uses Excel as the backbone to drive precise inventory data in a logical and organized manner. The unique aspect of Bar Cop is that you are not limited to taking inventory a specific way, with Bar Cop you can inventory by weighing bottles and kegs to ensure complete accuracy or point count those products that are not used very often. You can enter your data by voice command, or transferring data via a USB scale, or simply by typing. You can take inventory as often as you want, whether that's daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or even monthly. Bar Cop gives you the freedom to inventory your way.
All you need is a computer (a laptop or large tablet is recommended) with a Windows operating systems and Excel 2007 or later installed. If you want to enter inventory by voice command and/or weigh your products, you will also need a headset and/or weigh scales for bottles and kegs.
No, we do not store any of your private business data in the cloud. When using Bar Cop all of your data is stored directly on your personal computer in Excel files and can be backed up to external memory at any time. Although we like cloud technology and think it's great for certain things, we are currently against moving to cloud storage for our software and customers. While most inventory apps are using the cloud to store customer data, we do not want to go down the road of taking our customer's private sales and usage data and having it stored on remote servers where that information can be accessed or taken without Bar Cop's or our customer's knowledge in situations like data breaches, tax audits, etc.
With Microsoft's free speech recognition software and a headset, you can enter your inventory data by simply talking. Whether you decide to inventory by weighing products or point counting, entering inventory data on the fly as you go is as simple as counting to 10. There is not a faster or more accurate way to take inventory than weighing and entering data by using your voice.
