How easy is it to setup the Bar Cop inventory software?
The only setup needed to start using the Bar Cop software is to enter basic product information prior to taking your very first inventory. This includes the products you carry, prices, pour sizes, etc. Once this information is entered, it only needs to be altered if you change prices or products.
What's the difference in weighing open bottles and point counts?
Using a point count for inventory control is an outdated method. Although you can still use this method to count your inventory, the margin of error is very high and an accurate inventory will never be taken. The margin of error of using the point count method (eye-balling) is between 12 and 15 percent. Weighing your open bottles and using calculated tare weights, will bring your inventory to under a 2 percent margin of error. That can be the difference in tracking the loss of 00's in profits each week due to theft, over-pouring, etc.
Do I need a scale to use with the program?
The Bar Cop inventory program is designed to be used with scales to weigh your open liquor and wine bottles and tapped kegs. The bottle scale needs to weigh in total ounces and the keg scale needs to weigh in pounds. We offer high quality scales that are built for heavy duty inventory use, however the Bar Cop inventory control software can be used with any scales with the above requirements. Optionally you can enter inventory using point counts.
Does the Bar Cop inventory software track by drink recipes?
No, a misconception in the inventory software business, is that you need to track your liquor by drink recipes. In reality, this is a feature that does not work and is only used as a selling point. First, you would have to have every recipe of every drink entered in your inventory software and also your POS system (you can't just pick and choose recipes). If you managed to accomplish that, then secondly you would have to rely on your bartenders to hit the correct drink name key, every single time. With 1000's of drink keys in your POS, that just isn't going to happen. As long as your mixed drinks are cost out correctly (mixed drink sell prices should be calculated using a standard shot size/price for each liquor poured in the drink) and your bartenders charge the correct price (not always hit the correct drink key) then your liquor will always be tracked accurately by comparing your total sales to your total product usage.
I have a small bar, do I need Bar Cop's inventory software?
Every bar, no matter the size needs not only inventory software but proper inventory control procedures. It is a documented fact bars on average lose 20% or more retail profit to shrinkage. Can a bar of any size afford to lose that much profit?
