What is an inventory weigh scale?

An inventory weigh scale is an electronic device that records the weight of a bottle or keg. Once an open bottle or tapped keg is weighed, that weight must be entered into Bar Cop to calculate actual product usage and detect theft. Inventory scales on their own are not a complete inventory system.

Why should I weigh my products?

You have two options when taking inventory, weighing products with a scale or point counting (also known as "weightless inventory", "eye-balling", or "tenthing"). Weighing your inventory is the only way to accurately determine how much product you are losing to theft, over-pouring, free drink giveaways, etc.

What is weighing versus point counting?

When you point count (eyeball), you are visually estimating the product level in a bottle. Factors like bottle shape, glass color, liquor color, and glass thickness all play a role in visual deception making the average margin of error when guessing around 15%. Weighing has under a 2% margin of error. If you want to be serious about your inventory management and stop theft, the only accurate method is weighing.

Are most inventory apps just point counting?

If the app has a picture of a bottle, and you select the product level that you are visually looking at on the picture.... yes, it's just another way to point count. The fact is, no matter what type of inventory software you use, if you are not weighing your products then you are just visually guessing how much product is left in your bottles and kegs.

Isn't weighing going to take a long time?

Not with Bar Cop. In fact, you can weigh and still cut down your inventory time to a fraction of what you're used to. How? By using voice command with Bar Cop. Inventory using your voice... it's simple to do. All you need is a good headset and Microsoft's free speech recognition software installed on your computer to get started. Or use our USB weigh scale to transfer weights into Bar Cop in seconds.

Do you have a Bluetooth scale to transfer data?

No, we do not use Bluetooth scales to weigh inventory for two main reasons: reliability and long-term accuracy. Inventory software options on the market that use a Bluetooth scale, use a kitchen scale made by the company Escali. When usng a Bluetooth scale like this, Electromagnetic disturbances (radios, microwaves, cellphones, etc.) can interfare with the scale display, potentially causing issues with your inventory process. Long-term accuracy is the bigger issue because this Bluetooth scale cannot be recalibrated. Scales need to be recalibrated on a frequent basis to ensure accuracy. We do not offer scales that cannot be recalibrated. If you want to transfer weight data automatically, using a USB liquor scale is the most reliable and accurate method.
