Hotel inventory software
The hospitality industry is a vast one with many segments; country clubs, nightclubs, restaurants, bar...and of course hotels. We normally associate hotels with rooms and room service. But the hotel industry offers much more. Banquets play a major force in a hotel success, be it conventions, wedding, private parties...and in these functions, there is a common thread: the sale of liquor, beer, wine and food.
With the exception of pre paid parties, there still is what we call "cash" bars. Basically what happens here is a customer asks for consumption and pays the bartender, normally cash.
- Question is how many beers were sold?
- How many ounces of liquor were poured?
- Did we sell wine by the glass or by the bottle?
Luckily, technology of today has introduced hotel inventory software that will allow not only for proper receiving, fulfillment of requisitions, but also the ability to count what the bars begin and end with.
The hotel inventory software of today is designed to manage an unlimited number of fix, portable and banquet bars and not only update your perpetual liquor, beer and wine inventory, but also give you the important data you will need to properly invoice your customer, analyze the profitability of a function and increase the accountability of the bar staff by eliminating the opportunity for shrinkage and waste.
A complete hotel inventory software package should be designed to help hoteliers be in line with the liquor, beer and wine pour cost targets set forth at budget and address any areas that prevent us from reaching these cost control goals.
