DENVER, May 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Wine directors interested in offering their wine lists on an iPad got an enticing new option from AccuBar, a Denver-based company that has been a leader in beverage and wine management systems.
AccuBar's new module connects to its existing inventory management system to maintain the user's printed wine list and display it on an array of devices, from iPads and Android tablets to iPhones and other smartphones. The wine list will have full interactivity, allowing users to search by wine type, varietal, winery, region, price, ratings and other criteria.
The attractive package offers a variety of designs, and AccuBar also works with designers to style each customers' lists to suit their demands. The result is a product that is as attractive as it is usable, enabling wine customers to tap through a 1,000-item list in minutes to find that special wine or great bargain.
The entry of iPads has created a lot of buzz in the industry for revolutionizing the wine service dynamic. Giving diners an interactive tool for finding wines that interest them has led to sales increases of 10 percent to 20 percent in some restaurants, according to industry reports.
AccuBar can offer its users a major advantage in implementing this innovation: the company's barcode-enabled beverage management system seamlessly keeps the wine list updated across all these platforms and excludes stocked-out items. "Restaurant operators are already stretched very thin, especially if they're trying to keep up with a large wine selection," said Dave Grimm, an AccuBar founding partner. "AccuBar gives them an iPad option without it just becoming another big item on their to-do list."
AccuBar has been an innovator in the hospitality industry since its founding in 2000, serving many of the top names in the hotel, restaurant, country club, nightclub and other sectors.
