  1. Bar code scanner

    Instead of manually entering each item, I'd like the ability to scan the bar code and have the item appear.

    • Food Inventory

      I know that there is an option to input food for inventory, but it seems as a side thought. It would be great if you would allow the users to be able to input their food items and be able to put the measurements in based on the size of the canister or package. Not just have the standard mL, L, oz, gal sizes

        We are currently looking into small changes that we can introduce quickly that will improve food inventory. At the moment, you can still get an accurate PO for a food product by inputting the size/weight of the item in the Product Name, regardless of what container and capacity you set.

      • Add liquor costing.

        We have food costing in our kitchen, where you can use a recipe card and figure out how much it costs us to make a hamburger. We'd like something similar for our liquor, for mixed drinks for example, where we could enter in a recipe and using our wholesale prices, it would calculate how much the drink should cost.

          Hello!

          We currently have a beta version of recipe costing. This includes entering in wholesale costs to calculate how much a drink should cost, as well as reverse engineering your costs and prices for a target pour cost.

          Please email support@partender.com for access to our Recipe Calculator.

          Thank you!

        • More liquor choices

          Try to get more liquor bottles included. While taking pictures of bottles I can't find are helpful, the generic picture with a colored fill line is much better at reading an accurate level. Maybe look at what bottles have been uploaded from others, and create those pictures. Also, possible to edit the names of liquors as well?

              Hi there,

              We are continually updating and adding new bottles to our database, but it’s a lot of work!

              We appreciate your patience while we overhaul our bottle database in order to upload new products and labels.

              Thank you!

            • User levels and permissions. "User" and "Admin". One for employees and one for management.

              It would be nice to have a standard user level for all of our bartenders to do inventory without having access to reports or editing. This way any employee could use the system to input inventory. And have an "admin" level for management to edit, delete, run/view reports, "finish inventory", etc. This way the client would have more security on the higher level functions.

              p.s. Love the system so far! You guys did a great job developing this software!!

                Hi!

                We currently have limited user permissions, with the plan to build out more.

                At the moment, “Admins” can add and remove users, and view and update billing information.

                An Admin can also request access for any user to be able to reset inventory levels to zero.

                Let us know if you would like to update access for any of your users!

                Thank you,

              • Add "Purchases" and "Used" to inventory reports

                Add purchases and used columns to inventory report. I can see what I bought and I can see what I used and adjust pars as necessary or see exactly what has happened between counts.

                • A "lock" button for the level indicator

                  Sometimes when I swipe to the next bottle, I accidentally change the liquor level. A button that would lock in the liquor level would help.

                  • Visible distinction between counted and not-yet-counted bottles in current session

                    Use shading, checkboxes, etc. Our staff is always getting pulled away or distracted. Would be very helpful if partender could help them remember where they left off.

                          Additionally there should be a feature to alert you if you are accidentally re-entering an invoice,

                          • Break out invoices into categories

                            We enter purchases into Quik books. So we have to manually break out beer, wine, liquor, n/alcoholic. I would be nice if the spreadsheet could group each into their category and have subtotals for each, which add up to the entire invoice. I would be a considerable back office time saver. Thank you

                              If you enter invoices into Partender, you can see total value of purchases/invoices for liquor, beer, wine (and any other product type) in your Analytics page. We will also calculate your usage, and cost of goods sold!

                              Check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ei3z-jyAY0c

                              Your inventory report also breaks down the total value on on hand for all your products types. Just click the Value on Hand tab!

                                Hi,

                                The best way to see if a bottle is in stock is to 1) search for the product in the Analytics page to view the most recent count, or 2) review the most recent inventory report, which breaks down quantity on hand per Area (so you can see how much you have in different locations throughout the venue).

                                We will review adding a search feature in the application.

                                Thank you,

                                We have 12 tap handles of rotating craft beer, which none of the popular craft brewers are in your database, but the problem I have is creating and removing a craft beer easily. I dont need a par on something that I may only buy once. Please update the database for beer and make it easy to turn off a product once it has been consumed.

                                  Hi,

                                  It is very fast and simple to swipe and delete a product while taking inventory if it has been entirely consumed. And there is no need to set a par or distributor if you are not going to reorder the item.

                                  However, we believe that most customers struggle with adding new products and quickly setting the Brand data (prices, etc.).

                                  We are currently working on a better/easier way to create new products and quickly input the desired Brand data.

                                  Let us know if you have more suggestions or feedback!

                                    Hi there,

                                    This is one of our biggest feature requests. Great news! We are currently planning out our first version of a csv report integration for sales numbers.

                                    However, it will require customers to ensure that their POS is set up correctly with all proper recipes. In order to prepare for POS integration, please make sure your recipes are built into your POS and that your staff is trained on all options and modifiers.

                                    We look forward to sharing updates on future integration releases!

                                    Thank you,
                                    Team Partender

                                  • have the ability to edit/delete distributor names.

                                    If you could delete the generic distributors off that would be great. Also, once you have your distributors, offer a way to edit their information. (Contact info, days of delivery, payment methods, etc.) And have the ability to sort product by distributor.

                                      Users can edit and delete any distributors that are originally added by a user. You can also sort your reports and the Brands page by distributor. We will be adding additional functionality for distributors.

                                      Users cannot edit or delete public distributors that are included in the system.

                                      Are we really supposed to line up how full we think a keg is? This is AWESOME for bottles where we can see how full they are, but there's gotta be a better way to implement keg weights.

                                      • Show partial counts on the 'Shelf' screen.

                                        I think it would be a big help to show partial counts on the 'Shelf' screen.

                                        So for example, we have 1.5 bottles of Baileys on the shelf. Currently, when I look in the list it will just show the '1 Full bottles' of for Bailey's.

                                        I like using that screen to verify that my counts are accurate and if it showed partial bottle counts, such as '1.5 Full bottles', it would be very helpful.

                                        • Delivery Charges

                                          We need the ability to add Delivery Charges, Keg Deposits, and Case Breakage fees that appear on our invoices. Currently I just create small wares button and categorize them under a CHARGE distributor, but there has to be a more sensible way to track our collective fees across the distributors.

                                            Hi,

                                            Currently, you can add credit line items for products, which you could use for keg deposit returns.

                                            We will continue to update these invoice fields for things such as delivery fees and other charges.

                                            Thank you,
                                            Team Partender
