FAQ – YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED HERE
All of your questions about your bar inventory and how Bar Patrol App can help you save time, money and stress are all answered right here.
Will it integrate with my POS?
Yes. Bar Patrol Inventory App 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 Inventory 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.
***NOTE: Android version will be ready approximately April of 2020.
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 count your food and bar inventory faster and help your business grow.
Is it really only $49 per month?
Yep, (click here to see our pricing chart and compare to other systems) the annual plan is 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. Click here to get started
How much faster will it really help me take inventory?
I see you use a liquor inventory 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 inventory 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?
Absolutely. If you want to count old school because that’s the way you’ve always counted your liquor inventory, go for it. It’s very easy to point count with the app.
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?
Yep. All you need to do is run a Summary Report and it will total up exactly how much you have of every single brand you carry broken down by category.
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 liquor and/or food 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?
Great news, Android version is coming in April of 2020. As soon as this question says “Yes”, you’ll know it’s ready.
Can it count food?
You betcha. Many of our clients use Bar Patrol Inventory 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?

2. Invoice Report
3. Stock-on-Hand Report
4. Purchase Order Report
5. Variance & Pour Cost Report
