As featured on SpikeTV's "Bar Rescue," Partender is a subscription-based business tool that lets you to quickly and accurately:
- Do full bar inventory on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and even on the web (we do food too!)
- Place and receive your orders
- Get your Usage (for Variance)
- Get your Cost of Goods Sold (for Bev Cost %)
- See what’s trending in your venue
...all in just 15 minutes.
Besides saving time and labor, our customers reduce their Beverage Costs by 4-8% in under 90 days of weekly use.
Here’s what some of them had to say:
"Inventory takes less than 15 minutes now. It used to take 2 hours with 3 people counting, for a total of 6 labor hours."
- Grant S. at Boston Pizza
“It takes us just 15 minutes to do inventory, which we do at least twice a week. We stopped running out of things, and thanks to Partender, we managed to get beverage costs down to 20% in a matter of months."
- Mike W. at Marriott
Because when you count your inventory as accurately and as frequently as you count the cash in your register, less of it disappears. And the average shrinkage in our industry is 23%.
So when your inventory is 10-50x more valuable than your cash register, it makes sense to count it as carefully as the till, but that's been impossible until Partender.
So throw out your paper-and-pen and do inventory in minutes, not hours. See what's selling the best/worst, what's dead stock (and needs to get phased out via Happy Hour), and what's about to run out (so you don't miss a sale).
Stop manually typing your inventory into Excel or a web-based spreadsheet. Let Partender crunch your venue's numbers and automatically generate a Purchase Order (sorted by your Distributors) after each session.
With Partender, you can:
- Split up the work of inventory across an unlimited # of devices
- Get your venue's Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) instantly for Beverage Cost
- Track Purchases and convert them into Digital Invoices
- Monitor Actual Usage and Real-Time Customer Insights on a Brand-by-Brand or Product Type-basis
- See your inventory's Wholesale Value, broken down by Product and Alcohol Types (like a "Balance Sheet")
- Optimize your par levels (based on online graphs) to buy more of what's selling the best/less of what's selling the worst
- Determine how many dollars your venue is losing to shrinkage* ("Variance") via POS & our Usage / Variance Report online
*Shrinkage is the loss of inventory due to over-pouring, theft, breakage, spillage, not tracking comps, etc. And there's an average 23% shrinkage in the industry which causes 60-80% of bars and restaurants to fail within 3 years.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
In Partender's app, you to build a virtual blueprint of your venue on your smartphone or tablet. Instead of manually writing down your inventory using an arbitrary 10-point scale, cumbersome scales, or expensive hardware, simply tap where the liquor level is on the real image of the bottle. And swipe to the next bottle on your shelf. That's it! Our proprietary algorithms are up to 99.2% accurate so you know down to the drop & dollar-value how much each bottle is worth in Retail & Wholesale Dollars ($).
In addition to liquor, you can inventory beer, wine, smallwares, kegs, and FOOD! Our database is huge. If there's something on your shelf that's not in our database: take a picture of it, and our proprietary algorithms will do the rest.
ANALYTICS IN THE CLOUD:
All of your venue's reports are stored online. Just log into your web dashboard to see beautiful graphs & trends of what your customers are drinking in real-time. Compare different products and see what should be swapped out for better margins. Do you have bottles collecting dust while taking up valuable shelf space? Is your happy hour moving product and making profit? Can you order more often and still carry less inventory? Partender gets you to Just-in-Time Inventory with an ROI in under 3 months when you're using it weekly.

Ratings and Reviews
Whether you run a small or big operation, you need Partender. Seriously. Put down the paper and pen.
Having operated notable, high-end hotels like Four Seasons, L'Auberge, and Omni (as well as having seen Partender increase the bottom lines of my small, independent bars), Partender’s savings are no joke. Aside from the time & money savings, what I’m most grateful to Partender for is the effect it’s had on my staff — I’ve seen junior and senior bar and shift managers rise & train faster, make drinks faster (since Partender has helped organize my bars by providing us "a blueprint” of how our shelves should be laid out), and make more money (aka work happier) because we’ve saved so much money from labor and bev cost that I gave some of it back to my staff to incentivize them to keep up the good work.
Not to mention, Partender prevented me from running out of stock this month for St. Patrick’s Day, and I can’t even imagine how much more we made by having enough Jameson in stock.
Maybe I could have done this without Partender, but it sure would have taken me much longer than two weeks to get this organized and would have been such a headache.
For the price of a dozen drinks a month, Partender’s done so much for all of my businesses. I cannot recommend it highly enough. And thank you to the support team for always being available on email, phone, and text. Unparalleled and exceptional service.
An time and life saving inventory tool!
Just want to give your team a shout out for always pushing out more and more features and improving your already far superior inventory tool (i'm bias - after 2 years of using Partender I can't use any other system). It's like trying to go back to a flip phone after using an iPhone. Who would do that? Anyway, the new ordering feature is top notch! The ability to send out your orders directly to your reps is a life saver! Thanks for getting that out. For someone who uses the application quite often, I also notice how much faster the search option is and the offline mode is a godsend! Keep up the great work, guys!
The app is great, but it comes at a high cost!
After the 14 day trial period expires, you’ll be forced to pay for a subscription to continue using the service. $165 or $249 PER MONTH!!!
That’s $2,000 to $3,000 per year. I don’t know many small bar owners that would pay that or big ones that would approve that cost.
Also for that price you would hope that all your products would be available in their database, but I had to add a lot of my products. Granted some were regional, but most were nationally distributed and the user-based representations of some of the products were abysmal.
Developer Response ,
Hi! Thank you for your feedback. While we make it faster to count your liquid cash so our customers add more to the bottom line, we actually have small business pricing available - we'd love to share that information with you. Feel free to reach out me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'd be happy to take care of you. :)
