Grow your revenue with better bar inventory management.
Managing your bar inventory doesn't have to be so challenging. Most issues are caused by inaccurate data. When your data isn't right, bad business decisions are made and theft goes undetected. Most liquor inventory apps lack accuracy and make things worse. Bar Cop is different... super-fast and accurate, while saving you money, time, and your sanity.
You can inventory just about anything. Bar Cop is has 6 main inventory categories: liquor, wine, bottle beer, draft beer, non-alcohol, and food. The non-alcohol category can be used to track merchandise you sell like t-shirts, hats, and items like cigarettes. Inventory locations can be setup in each main category to easily keep your stock tracked exactly like it is shelved in your establishment.
Absolutely! You can weigh your liquor bottles, wine bottles, and draft beer kegs. All you need are the scales. You can use a USB inventory scale to weigh liquor and wine bottle to automatically transfer weights into Bar Cop or optionally any regular scale that has an ounce only setting. If using a regular scale, weights can be entered into Bar Cop either by voice command or manually typing. If you want to use a specific scale, contact us with scale model and we'll let you know if it will work.
No, we do not use Bluetooth scales for two main reasons: reliability and long-term accuracy. If you look at inventory software options on the market that use a Bluetooth scale, you will see that they use a kitchen scale made by the company Escali. This scale comes with some problems. Reliability - Electromagnetic disturbances (radios, microwaves, cellphones, etc.) can interfare with the scale display, potentially causing issues when you are taking inventory. The bigger problem is long-term accuracy because this scale cannot be recalibrated. You need to recalibrate any scale you use on a regular basis to ensure accuracy. Why bother weighing if the scale you use can be inaccurate? If you want to transfer weight data automatically, using a USB liquor scale is the only reliable and accurate way.
You can inventory daily, weekly, monthly... as often as you want to. A typical inventory period would be Monday - Sunday, or taking inventory once a week. The built-in shift check feature, let's you take random inventories of select products anytime that you want to during a normal week or longer inventory period. Shift checks help keep bartenders honest because they never know when you might be taking one.
Yes! Bar Cop comes setup standard to use the US dollar and track in ounces. However, any currency and unit of measurement can be used. In the software, enter your currency where the dollar is requested and enter your unit of measurement where ounces are entered. *Note: The dollar sign cannot be changed, so it will still show infront of the currency you use.
All you need is a laptop or large tablet with Microsoft Excel 2013 or later installed (Excel for Apple not supported). Bar Cop runs directly on your computer so no internet connection is needed while using it. If you will be weighing, you will also need inventory weigh scales.
