Capton announced that its signature RFID-based Beverage Tracker solution for liquor inventory management will be hard at work behind the scenes as the new Urban Tavern Restaurant opens this month in San Francisco.

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,” said 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.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the grand opening of this wonderful restaurant concept,” said Scott Martiny, CEO of Capton. “Improving the guest experience is always a big priority in hospitality. We are building a company with strategies for products and continuing services which ensure that our customers have exactly the right kind of technology solutions to take care of their guests and to see a sustained return on investment.”
