About Inventory Control:
The Inventory control system has 3 parts.
1. Start with an inventory item. These are the goods purchased (Bud, Absolut Vodka, etc.). These are setup in the Inventory menu under Inventory Item Setup. These items can be used as ingredients in multiple menu items so are treated separate from menu items. For example, you may only have one Vodka menu item, but vodka is an ingredient in many other items that may also be menu items like Long Island Ice Tea.
2. Second, a menu item is setup. This is the actual item that rung in on the register. This is located in Inventory Menu - Menu Setup.
3. And finally, these are linked by setting up a recipe for that menu item. This can be found in Inventory Menu - Item Recipes.
Once these are setup for a menu item, as sold they will automatically debit from the total amount on-hand. This will give a cost of goods or liquor cost, will create an inventory count, and even print order lists.
