Self-Pour in barcades

Self-Pour Technology In Barcades

When going to a barcade, customers are looking to have fun playing games with their friends and/or family. Customers moving around from game to game can make it difficult for your staff to keep up with their drink orders. The fun has to stop with a traditional bar set up causing customers to have to wait in line to get a drink. Thanks to PourMyBeer’s revolutionary technology, your customers are able to quickly pour themselves another drink without waiting in line and get back to the fun!!  Your staff can focus on other things, like cleaning up glasses and tables, and making sure everyone is having a good time.   

Benefits of self-pour for barcade owners

Reduced Cost: Since the customer is in control of how much they are pouring, you will save on wage expenditure as you don’t need as much staff. Self-pour technology tracks every ounce poured so no more losing out on profits due to over-pouring or spillage.

Service Efficiency: With customers acting as their own bartender, they can approach the wall when they need a refill. Meaning, your staff can focus their attention and efforts elsewhere, enhancing the overall customer experience.

Waste Reduction: Self-pour accounts for every ounce poured, meaning customers won’t want to waste what they pour. Since customers can pour as much or as little as they want, no more free samples are necessary. Also, with self-pour technology tabs will never be unpaid as the POS is automated, eliminating human error. 

Consistent and Quality Taste: Kegs are vacuum-sealed to keep beverages as fresh as possible. Once kegs have been opened, they’ll remain fresh for weeks and maintain the same quality taste from day 1.

Easier Inventory: The use of kegs eliminates the need for bottles. Now you’ll only need a few kegs in your inventory.

More Convenient: Customers have the freedom to pour whenever they want with self-serve technology so they never have to wait to get the attention of a bartender or server again!

Cost Efficiency: At a traditional bar, customers can have a couple of free samples and then purchase a full glass. With self-pour, customers can try a variety of samples before pouring a full glass. They pay for what they try and decide to drink.  

Cold and Consistent: Kegged drinks provide fresh, cold drinks every time. Customers will get the same great taste from the first pour to the last. 

Sampling is Easy: The pay-by-ounce model appeals to many customers. They can sample as many beers as they want in smaller amounts – giving them the option to taste beers they would normally never be able to taste. 

Fun: Let’s not forget the best part, self-pour gives customers a unique and fun experience! Customers love interacting with each other, comparing their favorite brews, and engaging on social media. It’s a concept like no other!
