How It Works
The BarLinq Smart Scale System blends seamlessly into any bar. It will not disrupt your bartenders’ workflow. Your customers will not notice it’s there. Bar owners, on the other hand, will see it where it counts: the bottom line.
Seamless Pour-by-Pour Measurements
Installing BarLinq SmartShelves is the first step to controlling liquor shrink. These low-profile digital scales extend across your bar’s shelves and can hold a dozen or more bottles each. BarLinq’s proprietary algorithms detect which bottles bartenders pick up and how much liquor they pour. These measurements flow directly to BarLinq’s cloud service via the SmartShelves' built-in wireless internet connection.
All of this happens without disrupting the way you do business. Bartenders pour drinks the same way they always have. The SmartShelves are more robust and require less maintenance than technologies like digital spouts. And since BarLinq’s SmartShelves never connect to our customers’ networks, there is no on-going IT maintenance.
BarLinq’s cloud-based reporting system turns the flow of data from a bar’s SmartShelves into actionable information for bar owners and beverage directors alike. Summary reports provide a snapshot of daily inventory trends. More detailed reports let you compare locations and shifts. Thanks to the SmartShelves’ pour-by-pour measurements, you can drill down into the data to see exactly when liquor shrink happened.
Going beyond raw inventory, BarLinq integrates with most point-of-sale systems to match each pour with each transaction. You can see, for example, when bartenders pour premium brands but only charge for call brand drinks.
BarLinq’s cloud also integrates with many liquor distributors to make re-ordering even easier. When liquor inventory gets low, the system automatically populates a purchase order for your review. BarLinq takes the hassle of manually ordering more inventory and reduces it to the click of a button.
