We all love our drinks, whether they are cocktails or mock-tails, its not important. What is important is that we all love a well made drink at our favourite lounge. Recently there had been some complaints in the F & B industry about the low quality of cocktails or mock-tails normally served in almost all the pubs/bars/lounges across the city. The complaint mostly is about the right mix of a drink.
But, I guess this will be a thing of past now. As Mr Akshet Tiwari, Founder and CEO- Barsys, recently showcased his latest product, Barsys, a Tech enabled robot for making bar style cocktails, which gives a perfect blend of cocktails every time. Its kind of a “DIY” machine which enables you to label yourself a “tech enabled mixologist”.
Barsys in fact is a fully automated cocktail maker designed to act as a tool for bar-tenders, enabling them to cater more number of customers. A mobile interface based on Android and iOS platform ensures that the customers on different platforms can choose or customize their favorite cocktail. Its quite a sleek and compact system which can easily be stored in the bar at your home/office.
Barsys, the forward-thinking automated system for making cocktails and mixed drinks is the brainchild of Akshet Tewari. Barsys monitors the consumption patterns, pour quantities, and can notify the user for ingredients if they are running low. The App stores all the data in the cloud and can be used to improve inventory management and develop data backed consumer insights. The system combines robotic hardware with cloud-based software to prepare your favorite cocktail faster than a bartender.
As Barsys has been designed with customization in mind, almost any kind of additive can be used to prepare your favorite cocktail, giving it the ability to prepare over 2000 cocktails or neat spirit drinks. The purpose of a perfect mixed drink is very precisely achieved with the help of complex algorithms used in BARSYS, each cocktail requiring a different algorithm. The machine controls liquor/cocktail pour sizes and ensures portioned drinks and cocktails. The pour sizes can also be configured without bounds for a distinct cocktail taste through an easy UI of the app.
Barsys LLC was incorporated in Delaware in September 2016 – A.N.A. transferred its IP to Barsys and became a shareholder in U.S. based entity. Barsys LLC is now headquartered in NY with its operations & R&D being conducted from New Delhi.
A B2B innovation developed so that a large population of less skilled bartenders can be complemented with an automated solution which is aesthetically pleasing & has an attractive, standardized, and efficient preparation method.
Barsys surely is going to be a revolution in the F &B industry. Every pub needs to develop consumer insights on favorite/highest selling cocktail so as to improve their menu.
