Why should I weigh my open liquor and wine bottles?
Weighing your open liquor and wine inventory bottles allows you to track your usage and shrinkage much closer than taking inventory by point count.
What's the difference in weighing open bottles and point counts?
Point counting or tenthing (looking at a bottle and estimating where the level of product is) is a high margin
of error way to take inventory and an outdated method. Although you can still use this method to count your inventory
within the Bar Cop application, the margin of error is very high and obtaining an accurate inventory would not be possible.
The average margin of error when point counting is typically around 15 percent. Weighing your products will bring that down
to about a 2 percent margin of error. That can be the difference in tracking the loss of $1000's in profits each week due to
theft, over-pouring, etc.
How easy is it to use the BC8200 inventory scale?
The BC8200 is extremely simple to use. Before using you will install the included Wedge data software onto your computer, then
plug the scale into your computer with the included USB cable, set the scale to weigh in total ounces, place your open liquor bottles one
at a time
onto the scale and hit the print key to transfer the weights immediately into the Bar Cop application.
Does the scale connect to a laptop when used with the software?
Yes, the BC8200 connects directly to your PC or laptop via a USB port and then automatically transfers bottle weights into the Bar Cop application
during the inventory process.
What is the weighing capacity of the BC8200?
The BC8200 will weigh up to about 18 pounds or 3 times the weight of a typical full bottle, allowing safer overload protection while
bottles are being placed onto the scale.
What are the dimensions of the scale?
The stainless steel platform is 6.7" x 5.5" and the overall scale dimensions are 8" x 8.8" and 2.1" tall.
How is the BC8200 scale powered?
It comes with an AC adapter or it can run off of 4 AA batteries (not included). For easy mobility we recommend using batteries.
