How do I set up my bar (venue) in the app?

Getting Started: Building your Virtual Venue in Partender

The application is the tool you'll use to 1) complete the one-time setup process and 2) take regular inventory.

Think of the app as a digital blueprint, or map, of your venue. The app is customized to your venue and represents the physical organization of your products. Familiar with shelf-to-sheet?  Partender is shelf-to-app. 

Building your virtual venue consists of three easy steps:

1. Add your Areas. An Area is any place in your venue where you serve or store your alcohol.

Examples:  Main Bar, Patio Bar, Upstairs Bar, Stock Room, Liquor Room, Walkin Cooler, Liquor Cage, Wine Cellar, etc.

2. Tap on an Area to add its Sections. A Section is any space in an Area where products are physically sitting.

Examples:  Left Shelves, Right Shelves, Top Display Shelf, Well 1, Well 2, Center Cabinet, Reach-in Cooler

3. Tap on a Section to add its Products.  Add product exactly as you see them on your shelf, from left to right (shelf-to-sheet).

TIP:  Remember to spell the brand name correctly, and choose the correct capacity SIZE!

Don't see your product in our database? Add a new product by simply taking a picture of it, or upload it from your camera roll if you have it saved in your photos.

You can inventory anything you can take a picture of!

Made a mistake? Don't worry, you can go to to, click on the product you want to edit, and then edit its information there.

Next Steps
Take inventory: Tap on a product, set where the fill level is, and then swipe to the next product on your shelf. Tap and swipe!
