As featured on SpikeTV's "Bar Rescue," Partender is a subscription-based business tool that allows you to quickly and accurately:
- Do full bar inventory on iOS, Android, and the web (we do food too!)
- Place your orders
- Get your Usage (for Variance) and
- Get your Cost of Goods Sold (for Bev Cost %)
...all in just 15 minutes.
Throw out your paper-and-pen and do inventory in minutes, not hours. Gain deeper insights into your bar than ever before. See what's selling the best/worst, what's dead stock (and needs to get promoted), and what's about to run out. Stop manually typing your inventory into Excel or a web-based spreadsheet. Let Partender crunch your restaurant and bar's numbers and automatically generate a Purchase Order (sorted by your distributors) after each session.
With Partender, you can:
- Split up the work of inventory across multiple devices to do any sized-venue in minutes
- Calculate your venue's cost of goods sold (COGS) to get your beverage cost (as a % of sales)
- Track purchases and digitize invoices for new inventory that comes in your door
- Monitor actual usage, consumption, and real-time customer insights on a per brand basis (which you can leverage for distributor discounts)
- See your inventory's wholesale value, broken down by product and alcohol type (like an accounting statement)
- Optimize your par levels every month (based on what's being consumed) to cut dead stock and make sure you never run dry of what sells the best (or order too much of what doesn't move)
- Determine how many dollars your establishment is losing to shrinkage* ("Variance") via POS reconciliation and our Usage / Variance Report online
*Shrinkage is the loss of inventory due to over-pouring, theft, breakage, spillage, etc. And there's an average 23% shrinkage in the industry which causes 60-80% of bars and restaurants to fail within 3 years.
Fortunately, customers doing full inventory on Partender once-a-week have increased their bottom lines by 6% in under 3 months.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Partender allows you to build a virtual representation of your bar on your smartphone or tablet. Instead of manually writing down your inventory using cumbersome scales or expensive hardware, simply tap where the liquor level is on the image of the bottle, and swipe to the next bottle on your shelf. No clunky hardware required! Our proprietary algorithms make Partender up to 99.2% accurate so you can know down to the drop and dollar-value how much is in each bottle, both in retail and wholesale dollars ($).
In addition to liquor, you can even use Partender to inventory beer, wine, kegs, and FOOD! Our database is huge and if there's something on your shelf that isn't in our database, just take a picture of it, and our proprietary algorithms will do the rest so you can inventory it with up to 99.2% accuracy.
