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 determine your actual product usage and to help 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's the main difference between weighing and point counting?
When you point count, 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 point counting around 15%. Weighing has under a 2% margin of error.
So what does all this mean for your inventory? Real profit loss and theft detection is found by looking at your variance percent which you want to be under 5%. As your variance rises over 5% you can attribute it to profit being lost. Because the inaccuracy of point counting can inflate or deflate your variance percent, it is impossible to know how much profit you are actually losing or how bad of a theft problem you really have.
Now you can still point count in the Bar Cop software if you want to and there are acceptable reasons to point count certain products - you know that bottle of Galliano sitting on the shelf that gets used once a year... sure point count it. But if you want to be serious about your inventory management and really want to stop theft, we highly recommend that you weigh.Are most inventory apps just point counting?
If the app has a picture of a bottle, with a slider that you move up and down to the product level that you are visually looking at on a bottle.... 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 products then you are guessing your inventory counts.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. You can optionally use a USB weigh scale to transfer weights to Bar Cop in seconds.How long does it take to receive a scale?
