San Francisco's Urban Tavern Restaurant will feature Capton's RFID-based Beverage Tracker solution for liquor inventory management upon opening later this month. The Beverage Tracker system installed at the Urban Tavern utilizes RFID-enabled liquor pour spouts, providing a clear picture of exactly how each drink is prepared, how the guest is served and how the transaction is handled in the point-of-sale (POS) system.
"The beauty of the Capton solution for liquor control," says Urban Tavern restaurant manager, Charles Evans, "is that there is absolutely no interference with the guest experience of how a cocktail is prepared and served by the bartender in a traditional free pour environment. The technology monitors and tracks every ounce of liquor going through the free pour spout on the bottle without requiring the bartender to do anything different in front of the guest. It all happens behind the scenes."
Capton's RFID systems are also at work in other notable San Francisco hotel, restaurant and nightclub establishments such as Harry Denton's Starlight Room and the Hyatt Regency SFO. Drago's Restaurant at the Hilton New Orleans utilizes the Beverage Tracker solution in a very similar type of partnership between a Hilton Hotel and a restaurant operator.
