"Nearly all bars, restaurants & pubs are missing at least 14% & sometimes as high as 28% of their beverage inventory"
As Sir Winston Churchill famously said, "however beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results." This has never been more relevant than in Hospitality. At Elemental, we help you to do exactly that. Unlike other Inventory Management Solutions, we not only give you the information you need, we actually work with you to solve the problem.

Inventory management is our focus and passion. For more than 30 years, Bevinco bar audits have been the
industry standard for bar inventory control. Quick, on-site audits are performed by our professional staff to
inventory your stock, assist with ordering, prevent loss and provide actionable data.
It is a sad industry fact that the average bar loses at least 20 percent of inventory. Around 70 percent
of that is lost at retail value.
Loss at cost vs loss at retail
Losses from theft, employee drinking, spillage and returns of wrongly made drinks are losses at cost. In
these scenarios, the business will lose the replacement value of the product.
Losses from unauthorised free drinks and drinks where payment ended up in the tip jar are losses at
retail. Over-pouring tends to effect losses at both retail and cost. Although the extra ounce served is a loss
of product cost, the customer also might not order as many drinks if they reach their limit on fewer, over-filled drinks.
How we can help?
The Inventory Experts, Serving Hospitality Professionals
Bar Inventory Service
We use barcode scanning technology which eliminates clipboards, reduces errors and reduces 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 bottles isn't good enough when counting your money, producing inventory variance reports and bringing potentially serious matters to the attention of your employees.
Are you tying up tens of thousands of pounds that could be better utilised? Our inventory service includes a customised 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 customised on-line guide. Get it done right by reassigning your inventory duties to BEVINCO.
Which critical drivers are you currently holding your bar and management staff accountable? How are you generating these numbers and how often? Our unbiased performance reports provide a consistent, reliable channel to communicate success and challenges with inventory performance.
Bar operators should use unit analysis to manage
and control inventory, unauthorised 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.
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 our Bevinco variance reports into their management incentive programs, optimizing results by putting inventory variances top of mind for busy managers pulled in several directions.
