About Bar Cop

Bar Cop has been helping bar owners save money with theft prevention and inventory management products since 1998. Bar Cop began shortly after our founder sold his restaurant and began selling a simple inventory control application he created for his own establishment to other restaurant and bar owners. In 2003, Bar Cop was officially launched online and 1000's of customers later we continue on our journey helping bars and restaurants profit more. Our software has evolved tremendously since the beginning, however keeping inventory management affordable will always remain a priority.

Our Mission: Make it simple for you to control your bar's inventory with easy-to-use and affordable products. Our inventory control solutions will help streamline your inventory management process and maximize your profit potential.

Giving Back: Because it touches close to home in our Bar Cop family, we give back a percentage of our profits in monthly donations to the St. Jude Research Hospital and try to do our part in helping treat and save children battling cancer.
