Maximizing Profits. Minimizing Shrinkage. Delivering drink consistency through for a great customer experience.
We care about your bottom line. Our scalable soft and hardware options allow you to manage shrinkage yourself or hire us to manage your inventory and provide audit services. Unlike other companies who offer liquor audit services, we provide instant identification of abused products utilizing our liquor monitoring technologies. This is a huge advantage over other manual-only audit service companies. We pin-point to the day, time and shift, all over/under pours which lead to shrinkage and drink inconsistency.
Over-pours cost the restaurant and hospitality industry thousands of dollars each year. Take control of your inventory with Pour Controls System Manager, our web-based software platform that allows you to track all pours in real-time from anywhere in the world on your desktop or mobile device. Improve your guest's experience with signature drinks that are poured right every time and save on management costs. Contact us today too book your complimentary consult and demo to learn more.
Why Pour Controls?
A step ahead of the competition
Other companies provide detailed information about your shrinkage only weekly or bi-monthly - which is too late and well after the fact. For instance, other companies will advise that you lost two bottles of Crown Royal but they have no idea when it occurred. At Pour Controls we are a step ahead in that we can pin-point these events utilizing real-time sales data from one of our many POS partners. Email alerts straight to your device instantly inform you that missed sales are happening. We can sculpture a tailored-program for just a few dollars more than what our competitors are charging, but with better results for your bottom line.

I'm very happy with the return on our investment as we implemented Pour Controls in each of our bars
I have been utilizing Pour Controls this past year, which has made my job a lot easier managing our liquor inventory. Both the local and the cloud-based reports allow us to review our variance information instantly. I especially like how the program handles mixed drink recipes within the program; it is the best I've seen so far in the industry. I'm very happy with the return on our investment as we implemented Pour Controls in each of our bars. Peter and his crew at Pour Controls are genuinely interested in our success. As we have encountered challenges with staff, Peter has been there for us offering workable coaching solutions and there have been times, that he recognizes an issue before we do. I would positively recommend Pour Controls to anyone seeking to have more control over their liquor sales.

Pour Controls' system creates a sense of accountability on the staff's part and reduces the need to micromanage
Since implementing Pour Controls beer and liquor monitoring system, our profit margin has greatly improved. The easy-to-read reports are a few clicks away and provide all the information we need to efficiently monitor usage. Not only can we keep an eye on what the staff is doing, but we can also provide them with day-to-day feedback. This creates a sense of accountability on the staff's part and reduces the need to micromanage on the floor, which is a huge plus for busy managers. All and all, Pour Controls' software is a great investment and indispensable tool.

Helps me easily control our liquor cost
The system and reports are well laid out and easy to navigate. This helps me easily control our liquor cost. I particularly like the ability to get a daily email every morning giving me a quick snapshot of the previous days variance. Peter feels like a partner of ours, and every time I talk to him it seems like our success is his top priority.

You will see your return on investment in less than 7 months
Since we have installed the draught counters, we have seen our beer cost drop significantly. We were out about a keg a week in usage and could never pinpoint the reason. Now we are out about 1/10 of a keg combined. We are saving over $200 a week in hard costs but putting over $1000 or more in the till for sales that are no longer "forgetting to be rung in." It also is a great training tool. I can print a report and show exactly how many ounces the bartender is pouring. I would recommend this system to anyone. You will see your return on investment in less than 7 months.

Simple, daily reports allow us to pinpoint even the slightest inconsistencies
With the astounding number of elements that can go wrong in our industry, we were reassured that any concerns for profitability would be minimized by practicality of the Pour Controls software. Pour Controls representatives were on site well in advance of opening to coach us on the use of what was apparently already a very user-friendly program. More importantly and equally impressive is their ongoing concern that their program was working to the level that they assured it would. Any minimal concerns we had were addressed immediately and with a level of empathy that is unmatched in the pub industry. Their RFID pour spouts are both a physical and a technical reminder to bar staff that one ounce is, in fact, one ounce. As a result of the system, the profitability of both our liquor and beer sales has eclipsed any predetermined margin. Simple, daily reports allow us to pinpoint even the slightest inconsistencies before they become issues. Without a doubt, Pour Controls will play a part in the success of any new operation that we operate in the future.
