FAQ – YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED HERE
Will it integrate with my POS?
Yes. Bar Patrol integrates with 95% POS systems. Simply export your sales data from your POS to Excel and it uploads instantly into Bar Patrol. You do not need POS integration to count inventory or do ordering/invoicing or run your summary report.
However, in order to run a variance report to see how accurately your bartenders are pouring, you will need to upload the sales data to Bar Patrol so you can see exactly what your bartenders rang in so you can measure it against how much they actually poured.
What are the device requirements?
Bar Patrol App works on any iOS device (iPad or iPhone) that is able to update to 10.1 or higher for the software updates. If you have an older iPad that is running on anything below 10.1, BAR PATROL WILL NOT WORK ON THOSE OLDER MODELS.
How does it work exactly?
Great question.Click here to watch a demo video on our Home page to see exactly how Bar Patrol App works and how it can help you and your business.
Is it really only $49 per month?
Yep, the annual plan only $49 per month or you can choose to pay month by month for only $69 per month, but the annual plan basically gets you about 3 1/2 months free compared to the monthly plan. That’s about $1.63 per day to have a cutting-edge inventory system in-house.
How much faster will it really help me take inventory?
I see you use a scale to weigh bottles. How does that work?
There is nothing more accurate than weighing partial bottles with only about a 2 – 3% margin of error. It’s more accurate than point counting, as well as the little slider you may have seen on other apps.
We have a super-awesome, super-sexy bluetooth scale that makes weighing bottles extremely fast and accurate. Simply put the bottle on the scale and hit Enter.

How much is the bluetooth scale?
The bluetooth scale is $119 one-time cost (or $139 if outside the U.S). You own it. Click here to check out the bluetooth scale.
How do I count kegs?
You can buy a keg scale, but they cost around $300. Instead, we recommend buying a digital bathroom scale for around $20 and it will work just as well. Simply place the keg on the scale, enter the pounds into the app and it knows exactly how much is in there based on the full and empty weight of the keg (which you can find in our video library downloads).
Can I still point count if I want to?
How does set-up work?
Once you sign up, you will receive a link to our video library which guides you step-by-step on how to set up your account, but if you’re having trouble, you can always send us your products (in Excel format) and we will be happy to set them up for you.
Will it aggregate (add up) all my data?
Will it help me with my ordering?
Without a doubt. This is one of the coolest features of the software. Not only will Bar Patrol tell you how much to order, broken down by vendor, but with just a push of the button, your orders will be automatically emailed off to all of your vendors. No need to call, text or talk to them in person (unless you want to, of course).
Does it work with Android?
Not yet. For now Bar Patrol App is only designed for iOS (Apple) devices. Most of our current clients who do not have an iOS device simply purchase a mini-iPad and charge it to the business.
Can it count food?
You betcha. Many of our clients use Bar Patrol app to quickly fly through their food inventory, as well as their bar products, cleaning supplies, retail, office supplies, etc., and at no extra cost.
Can it count on multiple devices?
Do you have a scanner?
What reports can I run?
1. Usage Report
2. Invoice Report
3. Stock-on-Hand Report
4. Purchase Order Report
5. Variance & Pour Cost Report
6. Summary Report
7. Line-by-Line Detailed Inventory Report
Will it work in other countries besides the U.S.?
Absolutely. As long as you have an iOS device and things to count, it will work anywhere in the world. In fact, we are now in 17 countries around the world.
