CENTENNIAL, Colo.–Compelled to switch to AccuBar’s liquor inventory system from a competing system, the Redhead Piano Bar soon learned that all solutions are not created equal.
The Redhead Piano Bar, based in Chicago, realized immediate benefits from the switchover, including time savings, fewer errors, responsive customer support and improved accuracy. “Inventory always took us between 7 and 9 hours to do, and we always had to have barcodes printed for the barcode-less items and either post them or carry them around with us,” said Keely Vande Hoef, manager of the club. “Now with AccuBar I can change anything I want to…. Barcode-less items I can just type in on the website once and we don’t have to carry around barcode sheets anymore, we can just look up our items on the handheld unit. It is so much easier it’s almost silly (but much safer since some of our products are on high shelves). Inventory now takes us almost half the time it used to.”
Vande Hoef also liked the fact that it didn’t take long to implement AccuBar and start seeing the benefits. “I know we have only had your product for a couple of months, but the ease and simplicity of it is amazing,” she said.
