'' As owners we debated back and forth as to the effectiveness of installing the draft metering system...wish we didn't drag our feet as long as we did. In August we were pouring 98-102 pints per keg, we are now pouring 134-140 pints per keg. Our Draft beer cost was between 24-26 percent, it is now down to 16-18 percent. We have increased our draft revenue $1000 per week and use less product.We give each bartender a rating, so we know who is not pouring correctly. This QB rating tracks sloppy and neglect bartenders. The other bartenders are then able to try and retrain that person.
The Daily Report is simple and fool proof, there are no issues, or breakdowns, the system runs very very smooth. The system tied up the one loose end of our business, we just weren't able to correctly track draft beer, and now we are finally making money.''

The ICS team installed the hardware and software in under six hours and it immediately told us that we were losing an average of 50 litres of beer each week.
The live reporting software enables our managers to monitor performance live from our on-site office and the per shift summary reports that are emailed to me automatically provide an easy to read snapshot of what the performance was for that shift. It has enabled us to react immediately to over pouring issues, unregistered sales or beer system issues and our managers have embraced the system and adjusted the way they manage the bar and their staff as a result.
Our average weekly beer wastage is now around 10 litres per week. When you multiply that saving over a year it is one of the smartest investments we have made with 40L per week now charged out rather than lost. Being a German Beer Hall we sell 1L Steins so over a year that equates to $52,000 through our till rather than down the drain!
I took a bit of convincing to spend the dollars on the system but for us the payback has been immediate. If you think you have a wastage problem, it is probably twice what you think, and this system is the only system I have seen that will tell you how to fix it!
A very satisfied,

Shrinkage as define by businessdictionnary.com: ''Difference between book-inventory and physical-inventory due to counting or recording errors, or resulting from pilferage, spoilage, theft, or wastage.''
You can lose draft beer two ways:
1. Over poured or down the drain (Worth the cost of the beer wasted).
2. Glasses served for which you do not get paid for (Worth the cost of the beer plus the sales revenue)
This shrinkage affects your business profitability and can be prevented
when you can tell....
