From traditional inventory management to adopting RapidBar
Located in the heart of Montreal, Chez Ernest is a unique place that has become over the years a must-see in the neighborhood, no matter the time of day. Behind a lively and relaxed facade, however, hides a complex operational reality, like many restaurants.
With such a diverse offering and continuous service, managing Chez Ernest’s inventory remains a constant challenge. Previously, the establishment relied on the traditional “pencil and paper” method for tracking its inventory. Every evening, all products were counted manually. This tedious task and error-prone working method made it difficult to detect omissions and/or stock variations.
This is where the RapidBar app comes in. Its goal? Simplify the inventory process, reduce errors and allow the Chez Ernest team to do what they do best: provide an exceptional customer experience.
No one likes the idea of taking inventory at the end of each shift, in the middle of the night. With RapidBar, the task is now quick, simple and easily rectifiable compared to old methods.Renuad, co-owner Chez Ernest
More than $10,000 saved in salaries

The application also stands out for its precision. Errors are kept to a minimum, and when they do occur, they are quickly identified and corrected. This results in better inventory management, reduced costs and improved profitability for the establishment.
The software’s web application also offers a complete, real-time overview of the establishment’s inventory. For owners, this allows for accurate inventory monitoring and management so they can identify any potential issues and make necessary corrections quickly.
Thanks to RapidBar’s comprehensive database, new products can easily be added to inventory, ensuring that Chez Ernest’s offering remains dynamic and up-to-date. RapidBar is not just an inventory tool. It is a dynamic, constantly improving solution that adapts to the changing needs of the restaurant industry.
Do the math. I save more than 2 hours per day while the restaurant has more than 350 days of operation per year. The savings is over $10,000 and I’m not even talking about what I’m saving in stock. RapidBar pays for itself!Renaud, co-owner Chez Ernest
