We are at the "Bamboo" café and sushi bar, which cheers and pleases the customers for more than a year now in Ekaterinburg. Initially, the automation system here is new generation of iiko software. With the system upgrade, bar inventory right at the cash desk has been tried here. The bar is contact and the full inventory is held three times a week by the bartender and accountant.
Well, let's go! The bartender takes and prepares all the bottles to count. Having a more precise look at the bottles, we notice that almost all of them has got producers' barcodes. The presence of the barcode allows to quickly identify not only the product type, but also its packing. Due to this, the amount of the leftovers in the opened bottles may be defined by scales.
Now let's move on to the workplace organization. There is a till that is always present at the bar. Here it is a sensory terminal based on iiko software, including the license for the iikoKitchen. Also, the interface scales and barcode scanner are connected to the terminal. In this case, we use the multiplane scanner, which reads the barcode no matter what is its orientation. This allows to increase the speed of wok significantly.
We create a new document "Bar inventory" on the terminal. When the document is open, we take the bottle, scan its barcode and put it on the scales. iiko recognizes the product type automatically from the barcode and adds it to the document. The program takes into account the empty bottle weight and the drink density and adds to the document only the real amount left. Likewise, it happens with all the bottles.
The inventory process is about to be finished. The information on all the products is saved in the system now. Meanwhile, all the data is already accessible in the system back office, do there is no need to input them again. The accountant only has to analyze the found boor leftovers deviations from the factual ones.
