Count. Control. Ordering. Analytics.  How Bar Inventory Management Boosts Your Profits

Precise counts

Precise counts

We use barcode scanning technology, which can be integrated with any point-of-sale (POS) system. This unique solution eliminates time-consuming bar inventory spreadsheets, minimizes errors and reduces the time required on-site. For your partial wine, kegs and liquor bottles, we use precision scales, which is the most accurate method of quickly capturing precise on-hand inventory levels. 

Visually eyeballing your partial liquor bottles isn't good enough when counting your money, producing bar inventory variance reports and bringing potentially serious matters to the attention of your employees.

Just-in-time ordering

Just-in-time ordering

Are you tying up tens of thousands of dollars that could be better utilized? Our bar inventory software includes a customized weekly order guide which benefits from par levels that are automatically updated weekly for each brand based on consumption history, using "just-in-time" and "just-in-case" inventory principles appropriately.

Save time and payroll by ordering using our customized online guide. Get it done right by reassigning your liquor inventory duties to Sculpture Hospitality’s innovative technology.

Bar Report Cards

Performance reports

Which critical drivers are you currently holding your bar and management staff accountable to? How are you generating these numbers and how often? Our unbiased bar inventory performance reports provide a consistent, reliable channel to communicate successes and challenges with inventory performance.

Bar Analytics


Our performance reports dive deep, revealing opportunities for increasing profits by adjusting your pricing where appropriate. Some of our most satisfied clients have successfully tied Sculpture’s variance reports into their management incentive programs, optimizing results by putting inventory variances top of mind for busy managers pulled in several directions.



Bar operators should use unit analysis to manage and control inventory, unauthorized comps and over-portioning. Similar to your checks and balances procedure of counting the cash drawer each day, when there are variances in stock assets, there should be a consistent methodology for resolving them.

Why Great Beverage Inventory Management Matters

Managing your beverage inventory may seem like a daunting task, but it really doesn’t have to be. In fact, beverage inventory management is a crucial process in protecting your bar’s bottom line and boosting the profitability of your business. 

Whether it’s staff members overpouring or ordering managers overspending on inventory, it’s likely that your bar is wasting money on its beverage inventory to some extent. 

You can prevent this by using Sculpture Hospitality’s innovative bar inventory management system. 

We can help you accurately track the stock that comes into your bar, the inventory that leaves your bar and the stock that sits on your stock shelf for years without being purchased or used.

By automating how you track beverage inventory, we will ensure that your bar is able to realize significant cost savings, achieve higher profits, decrease ordering costs and reduce waste.

Detailed reporting will show you exactly where beverages are being wasted, giving you insight into how to improve processes to limit waste - as well as exactly where you may be overspending on stock. 

Sculpture Hospitality’s team of local experts can help guide you through this entire process, ensuring you are using our inventory management system correctly and that there’s no errors in the numbers. 

We can visit your bar in person because our beverage control experts are based all over the world, and close to your bar’s location. Our local consultants are more than happy to come to your bar and give advice that helps your bar to achieve its profit and loss goals.
