What is BarLinq
BarLinq’s intelligent bar management system solves one of the toughest challenges that bar and restaurant owners face: controlling their liquor inventories without sacrificing the customer experience.
Bar Owners’ Lament: 20% Liquor Shrink
Even with spreadsheets and weekly visits from inventory services, the ways bar owners manage their inventory has not changed much over the past hundred years. As a result, the industry’s liquor shrink rate stays stuck at 20%. A single restaurant may lose $24,000 to liquor shrink in a typical year. A restaurant group may lose millions across all their locations.
Theft is a big source of those losses, but much of it is the result of bartenders just doing their jobs. Even for the best bartenders, overpours, spillage, buybacks, and after-hours drinks come with the territory. They don’t see how these things impact the business. The trouble is, traditional approaches to inventory counts don’t give bar owners enough detail to spot these kinds of issues.
BarLinq Delivers Real-time Liquor Inventory
BarLinq’s customers no longer live with 20% liquor shrink rates. By automating inventory measurement, BarLinq delivers real-time data that lets bar owners see exactly what’s happening in their bars pour by pour. They can see when bartenders pour drinks that are too strong. They can see when locations comp too many drinks. Information like this lets bar owners act and take control of their liquor costs.
