Usage History Report - Bar Cop keeps historical data on each product's total usage that helps you easily compare product usage from one inventory period to the next as product's popularity and trends change. *Usage averages are used to calculate dynamic par levels in order management. Any products that have a negative usage number will show as 0.00 in the usage history report.

Stock Check Report - Learn if you're holding on to too much product by checking your top on-hand products at the end of an inventory period. Keeping too much product in stock can tie up valuable cash flow and excessive stock should be reduced. Once you have taken four complete inventories and you use Bar Cop's dynamic per levels (see dynamic par levels) for ordering, excessive stock should no longer be an issue.
