Vendor order setup
Bar Cop will automatically calculate par levels based on historical average usage data. It does this by multiplying each products average usage by a par multiplier. This creates dynamic par levels that change each inventory period adjusting as business trends slow and get busier.
What is the par multiplier?
The par multiplier is your ordering safety net and can be adjusted at anytime. A par multiplier set at 2.5 would calculate a par level at 2 1/2 times each products average usage. Each main product category has it's own independent par multiplier. To change the par multiplier, click the gear icon. Enter your new par multiplier number and the calculated par levels will automatically adjust.
Adjusting individual product par levels.
At times you might want to adjust an individual product's par number to order more or less than the normal amount. For example: If you are running a special on specific product and will be selling more than the normal average range, you will want to order more product than normal for that one order.
To adjust a product's order par level temporarily, click on the notepad icon. Enter a number to add to (or negative number to subtract from) the final order par level. When you no longer need to add (or subtract) the par adjustments, make sure to clear any entered adjustments before your next inventory order so they are no longer added to the final order par level.
