Philosphy

The barSTOCK Exchange concept was originally created to provide a unique form of interactive entertainment. 16 products would be listed on display mediums around a venue and their prices would float in relation to their demand across the bar. The simplicity of this mechanism is easily understood, very effective, profitable and creates an excitement atmosphere in most venues.

It was quickly discovered that due to the nature of displayed information (i.e. products and their prices), clientele where always looking at the board for the best deals. It is a 1-to-1 relationship. What's up on the board is immediately available over the bar. It was our clients and many hours of observations that led us to add some new features to assist pub and brewery management and brand marketers to focus the public on their specific products. BarSTOCK has since evolved into one of the most versatile and sophisticated marketing tools available for licensed premises.

Principal

The barSTOCK software monitors the movement of transactions from within the whole EPoS system or on designated tills in the EPoS system, as preferred by the local or corporate management. At predetermined intervals barSTOCK changes the prices of selected products on all, or on selected, tills. Up-to-the-minute information on prices is relayed to customers on bright and prominently positioned wall displays, video screens or projection systems. The prices of drinks float up and down automatically, based on customer demand (just like a real Stock Exchange), reflecting actual sales at the tills.

The barSTOCK software does not effect any EPoS data except those relating to the prices of the featured products. All other forms of data caption or data management (i.e. personnel data, stock records, corporate or on site information and analysis systems) are totally unaffected by the operations of the barSTOCK system.
