Tech And The Back of House

In the modern age, technology in any business is a must. If your business isn’t utilizing some sort of tech, you will fall behind the competition quickly. Where, though, is the best place in your business to integrate this tech? Arguably, the most important place is in the back of house. But why?

The back of house operations can get hectic and messy. Employees running around making sure things are done, being unsure if a task has been completed in entirety, and checking to make sure everything they need is in stock can cause major problems for the guest experience in the front. For one, if any important tasks were left incomplete or done improperly, or if something has run out in the storage room, that severely damages the front’s ability to operate smoothly and deliver on the positive guest experience.

Tech is more easily integrable into the back because of the lack of customer interaction. Your employees are and will be the only ones in the back, and automating that part of the job makes it easier to focus on the human element. One of the biggest killers of time in the back of house is inventory management. On top of being tedious, it isn’t easy to keep track of the inventory itself. Remembering which day to count your stock of liquor bottles, who did it and when they did it, and if the job is even done all make a tedious job harder to do and keep tabs on. Roadblocks in the back lead to traffic problems in the front that slow your business operations (and customer satisfaction) to a screeching halt.

The front of house relies heavily on the back to keep the restaurant/bar machine going. The front of house employees need to have the time to care for their customers, and keep the front clean and prepped. If they’re short on anything they need to deliver food and drinks to their tables, a big problem arises. 

That problem is eliminated with the BarMinder digital liquor inventory system. Centered on a wireless liquor pour spout, The BarMinder System bottle tracking keeps eyes on bottles from when it enters the establishment until it goes into the trash. By combining data from the pour 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, check it into the system and your complete inventory and usage is provided to you on the hub in your 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 make more money. BarMinder gives your bar well-made drinks, well stocked inventory rooms, and keeps your bar running like a well-oiled machine.
