Barkeep – Scanning Tips: Some Barcodes Don’t Scan - Occasionally some barcodes just don't scan. It may be because the barcode is extremely long and narrow and curves around the bottle too much - the barcode recognition package that is integrated into BarkeepApp might be unable to recognize it. http://ow.ly/n4skJ

Barkeep – Scanning Tips: Hold the Camera Parallel to the Bottle – The camera should be parallel to the bottle. If the camera is tilted at an angle, it skews the barcode and can make it difficult for BarkeepApp to recognize. http://ow.ly/n4seW

Barkeep – Scanning Tips: Keep the Bottle Still – We personally have trouble holding both the bottle and iPhone or iPad still at the same time. It will be easier to place the bottle on the counter and hold the camera up to the bottle. This works better than trying to hold both at the same time. http://ow.ly/n4rEF

Barkeep Glossary: Location – refers to separate Locations in your bar. For example, you can have a single Location named "My Bar," or you can have many Locations like "Storage," "Walk-In Cooler," "Well 1," "Well 2," "Patio Bar," etc. Barkeep is able to track Inventory and usage by multiple Locations. You may set up just one Location or any number of Locations to suit your business. http://ow.ly/hZju7

Barkeep – Scanning Tips: “Zoom-in” Slowly – If holding the camera still isn't scanning the barcode, then start out with the barcode filling the viewing area at about 50% size. Then slowly move the camera towards the bottle so that the barcode increases to 70-80% will help. http://ow.ly/n4sgI

Introduction
Barkeep is an iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad based Liquor Inventory Tracking System. Designed and built by real Barkeeps, this product is ideally suited for quickly and easily monitoring your pour cost without a large investment in either time or money. 

Because Barkeep was designed and built by liquor industry professionals (We are bar Owners & Managers just like you!), Barkeep provides all the features you need to keep your liquor costs under control. 

Barkeep is extremely fast and easy to use, so you can get up and running with Barkeep in no time. 

BarkeepApp Features include: 
- Automatic Product lookup from Barkeep's extensive liquor database 
- Extremely fast inventory entry by product name 
- Accurate & easy barcode scanning using the Linea Pro Scanner (www.ipclineapro.com) or iPhone 3G's built-in camera 
- Manage inventories for multiple locations 
- Track products by category (beer, liquor, call liquor, etc) 
- Automatically generated Excel Spreadsheet Reports 
- Track product by weight for high-cost items (like Premium Liquor), accurate to .01 oz! 

BarkeepOnline (available with online membership at www.barkeepapp.com) provides highly sophisticated pour-cost analysis with features including: 
- track expected pour cost versus actual pour cost 
- pour cost alerts 
- best practices guidelines

Competing products require expensive scanning devices which are clunky, slow, and a pain in the ... Our bar managers LOVE us for developing Barkeep. It has cut their inventory time in half. And they can even listen to music on the iPod while doing inventory. Inventory no longer has to be slow, clunky and painful.
