“I’ve been a fan of AccuBar for years, and I love what it does for Margaritaville. For our restaurants, the advantage of having a product like AccuBar is that it truly takes the guesswork out of our inventory process. If we have a bar manager take inventory one week and an AGM the next week, we get the same results. Another thing I like about AccuBar is that every one of our restaurants uses it in a different fashion. Some use the full system, others just take beverage inventory, and one restaurants counts every single inventory item with AccuBar, including food and other items. As for the time we’ve saved on taking inventory, if it’s not cut in half, it’s more than half. One location shaves six hours off of inventory every week. Now that AccuBar interfaces with our back-of-house systems, it takes two minutes to input and get a nice clean report. The interface team was excellent and really enabled us to hit our goals. The handheld is incredibly easy to use, and updates are always available and easy to install. We’ve had one handheld running consistently since we bought it almost a year ago and it has held up great under heavy use. Your support team has been incredible. They have been able to quickly answer any question or concern that we might have. Overall, I’m very impressed with how your company has been able to offer such a solid combination of functionality, ease of use and support.”

“I began using AccuBar in 2002 in my previous position as Corporate Beverage Director for BR Guest Restaurants in New York, NY. As soon as my colleague Greg Harrington and I saw a demonstration of AccuBar, we decided we had to have this device. We were thrilled with its performance from day one — the overall time it took our beverage managers to count inventory and enter data was reduced by 80%. In June 2006, I started my new position as Beverage Director for Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group. One of the first systems we have implemented since I started is the AccuBar system with the new Pocket PC MC-50 [handheld], which is an even better system than I had been using previously. The omni-directional barcode reader makes scanning bottles even easier, the color screen is brighter and easier to read, and the extended search look-up function makes finding items in the database much faster. The team at AccuBar has made a great system even better. And, in addition to developing an excellent product, AccuBar has always provided superlative tech support.”

“AccuBar is an inventory software program that no beverage director or wine sommelier should be without. Our restaurants count inventory every 2 weeks and it used to take each of our 14 beverage managers upwards of 8 hours to count and enter inventory. It was also very inaccurate because after counting they would be so tired that there were many clerical errors in entering these counts. AccuBar not only makes counting easier but it eliminates any totaling or transferring of numbers to spreadsheets. As far as the wine cellar is concerned, AccuBar enables a sommelier to create barcodes and print them, which also keeps the room organized. I would highly recommend it to everyone but especially to multi-unit operators. We have saved money throughout our restaurant organization in time, labor and more accurate inventories.”
