Bar Cop is the leading inventory control + theft prevention software application for bars and restaurants since 1998.

Setting up inventory locations

Bar Cop makes it easy for you to setup your inventory locations, allowing you to list products in the exact same order that they are arranged on your shelves. To get started, click on "Enter Inventory" in the main menu.

Then select the main product category where you want to setup your inventory locations.

Customizing Bar Cop

Bar Cop comes standard with seven inventory locations in each main category. Each category's inventory locations are setup independently from one another. The first step to setting a category's inventory locations is renaming/deleting them by clicking on the gear icon.

When you have your inventory location names setup, the last step is adding your products to each location in the same order that they are shelved at your establishment. Why? This makes the process of taking inventory in each location extremely fast.

To do this, your products must already be setup in the "Product Setup" section (recommended in alphabetical order).

Repeat the same process for each inventory location to complete setup.

Things to know:

1) To add a new inventory location or change an inventory location name in the future, just click the gear icon and make the changes in your most current inventory file.

2) An inventory location can be any place that the product is counted for inventory. An inventory location does not have to be an entire bar area. For example: If you only have one main bar that consists of two speed well stations and bottle shelves on a back wall. You can setup the main bar into different inventory locations, one for each speed well area and one for the shelves.
