The stainless steel encased terminal is the first system specifically designed for behind the bar applications, and fills the void normally associated with all current restaurant POS /cash register systems. This is accomplished by providing a full back office reporting package that includes inventory, including reorder status against PAR, employee sales and comps, and for the accounting department, a report that includes the companies profits for each product sold. Four different levels of tax information combined with the ability to separate cost centers within locations allow unmatched accountability within a companies operation.
Accounting errors are virtually eliminated because the drink is being rung up into the terminal AS it is being poured, without the server having to touch a button to record the sale. Now companies can track individual profits by product name or group, plus have the ability to specify which brand name of liquors go into cocktails, maximizing their profits and stabilizing their pour cost. These reports are customized to each individual customers needs instead of a ÂcannedÂ reporting package. Customers report that the unit saves at least 15 hours a week in management time by having the ability to retrieve these reports at the touch of a button, instead of the tedious manual calculations typically used in the past. For operators with multiple locations, they are able to track all of these functions from a centralized office.
Users report that their customers love the consistency of recipes and pricing of the drinks being ordered. Now their specialty drinks are the same no matter who is pouring them behind the bar. The time to training new bar staff is cut substantially because you can program up to 255 cocktail recipes into the system. If a bartender is unfamiliar with the ingredients of a certain cocktail, all they have to do is touch a button and it will tell them what bottles to pick up, and pour the correct amount at the right price.
Inventory control and product consistency have plagued the behind the bar operations in the hospitality industry for years. With declining profits and increasing costs on the food and labor side, many owners have been looking for a solution to increase profits, and they had all but given up in the bar area, which many times is the source of their biggest revenues, and losses. . Since the revenues from a single the a single gallon of liquor can exceed $300.00, companies have realized that they do not want their profits going down the drain The hospitality Industry can finally utilize todayÂs technologies in sophisticated inventory methods to increase their bottom line, from a easy to use system to operate
The terminals are available in four different platforms allowing each operation to chose the unit which best fits their needs. The ability to also pick which way to dispense the products is another plus since you can chose between a variety of methods from a programmable spout that goes on bottles, to the High Speed Cocktail tower, which pours recipes of up to 64 individual liquors, sodas, and juices through individual lines at the touch of a button, in about a second. They also offer solutions for draft beer with beer heads that not only pour the correct amount but also ties into the same complete inventory package as the liquor. They also have been very successful in the wine by the glass market since the spouts are not only airtight increasing shelf life of open bottles of wine, but because of the ability to program into the spout the brand and pricing of individual wines by name, operators can now offer more selections to their customers. Happy hour pricing is also a big plus since the unit will automatically change pricing of products at the time of happy hour, and go back to original pricing at the end of the promotion.
Security is also increased since the unit will automatically turn off at closing and not allow any products to be poured through the dispensers. So after-hours liability is reduced, and clean up crew theft is deterred. Contact AzbarAmerica at http://www.azbaramerica.com
