Not Your Father’s Liquor Tracker

A long week of running a bar is finally over. Sales were alright and the bar did well enough. So why are your sales numbers not matching your remaining liquor inventory? There are a number of potential suspects, but how do you find out the real issue? Every business owner and manager should have an idea as to what goes on in their business. You shouldn’t have to babysit your bartenders, and everyone should be aligned on providing a great experience for your customers. With the BarMinder Inventory System, you get a powerful tool to know with certainty that your customers’ experience is exactly what you want it to be.

The BarMinder Inventory System has one purpose in mind: To give you, the owner or manager, a better understanding of what is happening in your bar. Once you know what’s happening, you can make more informed decisions of what to do or change to better your service. Real-time accountability is key here, because finding out on inventory Monday that you went through way too much whiskey compared to sales does nothing to identify what you need to do next. BarMinder’s Smart Spouts allow you to see who may need re-training in order to make sure you have a consistent customer experience for everyone that comes through your doors.

Our wireless spouts have been designed from the ground up to survive the hectic and busy environment of real bars. Built like tanks with tough non-stick materials that are easy to wash, BarMinder Spouts can hold up to anything your bartenders can throw at them – literally! They have a HUGE wireless range and can still get signals through when your bar crowd gets three deep.

On top of all this, they carry a battery life of at least a year on average, eliminating a potential situation where your spout dies on you in the middle of service. Truly built with resiliency and reliability, the BarMinder wireless spouts allow you to worry less about taking proper care of the spouts, and stay focused on your customers. 

Smart spouts that don’t interfere with your bartenders’ job, or your customer’s experience.

You also don’t have to worry about training your bartenders to keep the spouts on the same type of bottle or look at tiny labels so your data is correct. BarMinder’s Smart Spouts automatically pair and self-assign themselves to any bottle they are put on, eliminating labeling and human error completely. The spouts can also detect when they’ve been removed from the bottle, which keeps everyone honest and allows you to float spouts between multiple bottles at will.

Spouts can be configured to pour a set amount and stop, or even provide a free-pour like experience to not interfere with the customer perception. Since they look just like a regular speed pourer, they don’t call attention to themselves to your customers can focus on enjoying their cocktail and not the high-tech thing stuck on the bottles.

“No training necessary, no incorrect pairings that ruin data, and no worries for your staff”

Centered on these revolutionary pour spouts, The BarMinder Inventory System tracks every bottle from when it enters the establishment until it goes into the trash. By combining data from the spouts about every drop being poured with real-time counts of every bottle in storage, BarMinder lets you never have to count another bottle of liquor. Ever. Just slap a sticker to the neck of the bottle and check it into the system, your inventory is complete and provided to you on the hub on location or anywhere in the world on your phone. No more incorrect counts, no more hours wasted on counting bottles, you and your staff can focus on caring for customers, and BarMinder will let you know when there’s something that can be done to improve your operations. Reduce shrinkage, reduce overhead, and make more money with BarMinder.
