Behind the Bar

If you have never worked, stood or even looked behind a bar, you might want to start paying attention. Yes, there is the glamor-less but mandatory regular stainless-steel sinks, lemon and lime chopping boards, shelves of empty, shiny glasses, a high powered dishwasher that seems to run non-stop and other non-headline items. What you can easily see and should start noticing is not only the layout of wines and liquors but the tools used to measure them. Before long, you will start to see them enter the digital age thanks to Denmark based bar management system company, Provargo.

The Wall Bar Rack

Provargo are leading the liquor dispenser manufacturing industry into a technological revolution, including but not limited to the wall bar rack. Dubbed the “DigiPour Wall Rack”, this new and far improved technology not only helps control the flow of liquid in the beverage business, but using wireless connection, transmits valuable data to its configured transceiver which then sends critical information to a user-friendly database. The wall bar rack records every pour and every bottle change. Two drinks can be accurately dispensed at a time, and it eliminates the need to physically carry around the bottles.

With proven industry results, ProVargo’s wall bar rack has been able to add an extra 10%-20% of turnover, reduced purchasing costs due to over pouring by 5%-10%, and the well-designed visibility of the units have increased liquor sales at an average of 20%.

From Rack to App

The wall bar rack unit’s data is transmitted to ProVargo’s ProCloud database and mobile app. Using these interfaces, users are able to access real-time data on their current inventory status as well as generating daily sales reports. Reports can be customized to produce week to week, month to month and/or year to year sales comparison reports. Sales in different departments, sales by product or sales by staff members can be isolated and examined easily.

The pour to pour management and information collected provides greater control over stocks and inventory. The ProCloud app provides even more instant information by way of notification. Notifications provide crucial information to the user, even on the go. From low running kegs and liquor bottles, to risks of shrinkage, to maintenance-related data, the ProCloud App is an essential component to the complete ProVargo beverage management army of solutions.

ProVargo can work with clients to sync up their point-of-sale system (POS). In doing so, clients use the POS system as way of controlling the amount of beverage dispensing permitted each night thus providing even more control over inventory. When a POS system is connected, the ProCloud App can also notify users of unusual activity not previously recorded via the POS system.

So, next time you ask your friendly local bar-keep for a cocktail, take note of their measurement system. If they have not yet upgraded to ProVargo, it won’t be long before they do.
