Protecting Your Bar 101

Bar owners are increasing their due diligence in terms of checking ID’s. More and more bars now use ID scanners to detect fake IDs. This is so important as the increase in underage drinking has caused more tragedies as a result. According to CNN.com, 4300 deaths annually are caused by underage drinking.

While bouncers check ID’s at the door, an important second step is often missed-checking the ID at the bar. Bar tenders often get busy or assume that because an ID has been checked at the door, they do not have to check it. This is not the case. Bar tenders, not just bar owners, are liable for serving minors.

Make sure you protect your employees, guests and your business. Check patron IDs at point of entry and the bar. From the launch party for Amoriste's new EP, Under The Hours Of Satellite Towers, Thursday the 15th July 2010. More info about Amoriste and their UK tour, as well as a chance to listen to some of their tunes on their website at http://www.amoriste.com Additional pictures and a blog post about the party on my blog at http://imaginary-visions.co.uk/2010/under-the-hours-of-satellite-towers/To ensure the IDs are valid, use an ID scanner. In the unlikely event that an extremely good fake goes undetected, ID scanners will stand up in court, saving you liability and money in fines. They also save time, your employees don’t have to second guess themselves or waste time squinting to read the information on the ID; the scanner will do that for you.

Enhance Your Customer Relationships

VeriScan Online: Tags

This week, we are going to jump back a few weeks to highlight a user feature of VeriScan Online that will help you improve how you and your employees interact with customers.

As most of you know, VeriScan Online has a “Tags,” section. Tags can be used in multiple ways but we will discuss two of them as well as their latest capabilities.

Here is what you will learn:

  • Use a tag to make a particular comment about a customer
  • Have the tag serve as a destination reference
  • Multiple tags per customer

Improving Customer Interaction:

  • Let the tag make a statement about your customer: If a customer has a particular habit, let this be reflected in the tag. For example, if a customer is fond of a particular server, have the tag denote this. They will appreciate the fact you remembered their preferences.
  • Let the tag act as a destination: Let your customer know that you are on your game. If you have a customer that is scheduled to visit a particular location at your establishment, tag them with that location name. Not only does this show personalization, it demonstrates streamlined operations.
  • Multiple tags per customer: We recently added the component of  having multiple tags per visitor. This will help you operate even more efficiently as you are no longer limited to using a tag as a comment or as a destination. This combination will help you and your business operate at its highest capacity.

Green Technology

Technology has progressed more than one could have ever imagined in the 21st century. Since 2005 alone, we have seen major developments including the ever so popular Facebook, Tesla and the iPhone. With its ubiquity, it seems as though we will only continue to be immersed by an ever changing, fast-paced technological environment. Such progress has also enhanced our ability to “go green,” not just in our personal lives but also in our businesses.

Entire buildings are able to go green. Some amazing examples are seen in Cat DiStasio’s article,  6 Futuristic Building Technologies That Will Change the World. These include: a building in Milan that cleans the air by absorbing smog and turning it into salts, a building in Hamburg powered by algae, self-healing concrete in Amsterdam, glass roof tiles in Sweden which heat a building using sunlight and a playhouse which is insulated by mushrooms. Not only are these structures environmentally friendly, they are also aesthetically pleasing. If entire buildings can be green, one can easily make a few small changes to help their business be more eco-friendly.

In addition to a clear conscience, a business can benefit in a variety of ways by implementing environmentally friendly measures. Your business can attract positive PR by taking green initiatives. There are tax credits available to companies that go green, you can see what’s applicable to your business by visiting https://www.sba.gov/content/federal-tax-credits-energy-efficiency. Your business can save money on energy bills, use less paper and reduce overall waste. Since being green is no longer a trend but part of a sustainable future, how will you make sure you integrate this into your business?
