-- Adding to recent expansion in clientele and staff, Colorado based liquor inventory company Bar-i Intelligent Inventory has also recently expanded their website (http://bar-
i.com/). After having recently added a forum for bar owners and managers to pose bar related questions and receive feedback, Bar-i owners Scott Douthitt and Jamie Edwards have now added a ‘Case Studies’ section to the site. In this new section website visitors are given examples and situations based on actual Bar-i customers. The owners’ expectation is that by providing a glimpse into the successes and failures of other bars readers might be able to recognize similar issues in their establishments.
In the past three years Bar-i Intelligent Inventory has conducted over 60 free inventory audits in the state of Colorado and in that time Douthitt and Edwards have seen most, if not all, of the challenges that bar owners and managers face when dealing with liquor inventory and the reduction or shrinkage. “I was a bar manager for some time before creating Bar-i so I was well aware of how challenging and frustrating liquor shrinkage can be. What I didn’t realize before starting my own liquor inventory company is how many issues and situations can create loss of alcohol and profit”, says Douthitt. This apparently, is one of the primary reasons for adding the ‘Case Studies’ section. According to Douthitt there are many factors that contribute to bars losing money and many manager and owners are either unaware or are unwilling to believe that these factors would be going on in their bar. Bar-i has already seen that their website addition has had a positive affect with the addition of a handful of new clients in the past three weeks; all of which were driven by website visits. “We provide a lot a free information and content on our website and the reason being that liquor inventory is not fun or flashy so it is easy to ignore. If we can make taking liquor inventory easier, faster and less painful bar owners and managers will take more of an interest in liquor inventory and liquor inventory software”, says Edwards. Currently the site has posted seven separate case studies with the intention of more to come. As the case study series continues bar owners and managers should expect to see relatable stories that that will be helpful and informative.
With a great deal of free information currently on their website Bar-i Intelligent Inventory intends to continue to provide clients and website visitors with smart and workable information. With consistent increases in website traffic over the past three months Douthitt and Edwards are confident that the content they are providing is being well received and adding value to bars. “We know that we have a great service that solves the liquor inventory and shrinkage dilemma. Providing insight from our experience and expertise allows us to convey our knowledge while drawing attention to our service and product”, say Edwards.
