Who’s really in control of your bar? If you’re relying solely on a POS system to keep track of your draft beer sales then you are definitely not in control. Your bartenders could be robbing you blind and you’d never even be able to prove it. Over pours, theft and bartender error all seriously hurt your bottom line. The only way to accurately track your sales and maintain the correct level of accountability is with quality draft monitoring from West Coast Beverage, Inc.
Over pours lead to significant loss for bars and restaurants. Even just an extra top up for loyal customers equates to a lot of money down the drain. Another common problem is spills and waste due to bartender error. No matter how much you think you trust your employees, without accountability you’re bound to run into problems sooner or later.
Unlike other hospitality positions, bartenders are responsible for taking a guest’s order, preparing it for them and collecting money from them, often with little to no accountability. Add in the fact that bartenders make most of their money from tips and you have a recipe for disaster. Bartender theft comes in many different forms. A bartender might pocket the money collected from a sale or they might offer drinks for a discount or free in an attempt to get better tips. Sometimes they consume beverages themselves without ever paying for them.
Most bars charge around $6 per beer. If your bartender pours just two free drinks every day you lose approximately $4320 annually. You can imagine how much higher that number gets when you factor in over pours and bartender error. Draft beer monitoring is the first step to eliminating lost profits.
An Auper Draft Metering System provides you with the information needed to monitor your employee’s performance when pouring and ringing up draft beer sales. This innovative system allows you to figure out exactly if and when problems occur. It is specially designed to raise performance level behind the bar and increase your bottom line. The metering system is easy to use, effective and will not impact your customers’ experience.
