Whether it’s your liquor inventory, your staff, your entertainers or your profits, there are several industry companies that can help you keep an accurate track of these critical areas of club operation. This Special Editorial Focus includes products that help track everything that’s important to your success.

Dancer/Dance Tracking

Pole Position

Pole Position is an easy-to-use, app-based platform, designed specifically for the adult club industry. Pole Position allows clubs and dancers to connect with each other. Its technology is designed to elevate the industry in the gig economy and helps show that entrepreneurial dancers are truly in business for themselves. Pole Position can help reinforce the status of entertainers in your club as independent contractors and provide many other management tools — not to mention entertainers also love the app.

Pole Position is not a point-of-sale (POS) system, it is software that connects independent contractors/entertainers with clubs and also provides tools to help show entertainers are really independent contractors. However, we believe integrating Pole Position’s software along with whatever POS system a club is using is a great compliment and can optimize the app’s benefits. The connection between the app and a club’s POS system expedites the flow of entertainers.

Pole Position was created with a focus on bringing much-needed tools to the industry. In addition to tools for Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) defense, we are continuously adding features and technology that otherwise have not existed and are proud to be at the forefront of technology in this industry. Pole Position can complement any club’s POS system and provide significant benefits with minimal change.

ChargeSavvy offers dance tracking where operators can manage the availability of entertainers while simplifying rental fees, lease fees and commission payouts.

Our entertainer contracts provide seamless integration of entertainers into a live club environment. Owners/managers can onboard new entertainers with the club’s own contract, track expiration dates for contracts and any form of ID.

Further, our systems facilitate promoter payments and reporting. You can customize, print and redeem your own form of funny money/dance dollars.

Strip Codes

Strip Codes is an application that bridges the gap between customers, entertainers and guests’ favorite strip clubs by not only helping locate clubs on the go but also helping to create a safe, effective way for customers and entertainers to communicate. The app also provides direct access to the inside of participating clubs.

Membership with Strip Codes allows customers to see entertainers while they are performing at any club in the country. If they choose to follow a particular entertainer, they can get a direct notification once she arrives to work. The app does not track dancers’ activity.

Strip Codes helps promote clubs directly to a target market. By displaying dancers profiles, the app also allows clubs to cross promote.

With our Same-Day Payroll and Biometrix Clocks, we can streamline all time tracking throughout the club.

Besides our time tracking, we can also do general ledger reporting, HR and we also have an applicant tracking program to hire talent. We also have a worker’s comp partner that works with many of our club clients.

A lot of clubs are currently on leasing companies — we have a worker’s comp partner that helps save money on the comp while at the same time saving money by not paying admin fees or a percentage of payroll fess through a leasing company.

Liquor Control/Pour Systems

Bar Man Control

Bar Man Control was conceived by gentlemen’s club pioneer David “Slim” Baucom and his son, Walter, as a Swiss-Army-type software system for the everyday challenges unique to this industry’s club owners and operators.

Bar Man Control is, in part, all of these things: POS, inventory program, CRM, entertainer tracking software, HR manager, club cash print-on- demand — and more. The Bar Man point-of-sale module is designed specifically with your employee in mind — the one who may have little experience, whom you’ve had to throw onto the floor on a Friday night without the comprehensive training that takes place in that idyllic strip club in the sky.

Bar Man Control offers an integrated scan- and-weigh system designed to be performed at every workstation, after every shift, literally in minutes. The reason is accountability; by pinpointing your variance in real time, you’re able to hold your bartenders financially or professionally accountable for mistakes, and/or deter them from making the same ones going forward.

Admissions details, variance & cost analyses, entertainer earnings, performance summaries, hourly or time period reports, menu item mixes, revenue reports by employee, station, shift, date, range, property or organization … it’s all a few clicks away.

Berg Company

Berg Liquor Controls is a leader in liquor control systems, paced by more than 50 years of experience. Berg offers a complete line of liquor controls for liquor, beer, wine and other beverages for a wide range of applications.

Berg Infinity Software is capable of complete tracking of inventory by brand, providing an actual pouring cost including the variance report while also providing inventory control at the point of pour. Berg is a real- time, proactive control of not only your inventory but it can also interface with your POS system (including tablet solutions) to provide positive cash control as well. Weighing and after-close inventory systems only inform you of missing inventory — and the severity — after the fact.

Berg’s infinity reports can distinguish by bartender station the cash versus inventory actually poured and the dollars that are missing (by comparing to POS data).

Berg DN All Bottle ID Cocktailing provides consistent drinks by recipe every time no matter what bartender pours the drink. The Berg system controls up to five liquors per cocktail, offering infinite combinations. Regular drinks (rum and coke) are controlled by the four-portion sizes available to the bartender and as they are poured they ring the POS in accordance with the value of the amount poured.

Berg will slash actual club purchases from 20-60% and increase register activity by 10% or more — less over-pouring, less waste and more money in the register.

Club Control Systems

Club Control Systems (CCS) has long been an active vendor associated with gentlemen’s clubs. It was designed from day one with flexibility in mind. They have learned from talking with all the different clubs that although, in general, they do the same things to earn revenue, they each have their own little unique differences in accomplishing it. One size does not fit all and the team at CCS decided they wanted to be the company that supports how a club wants to operate and not how they want it to operate. CCS doesn’t have a standard software package, rather they configure each of the individual solutions on their platform to clients’ needs: POS solution; entertainer management solution (dance tracking, VIP room tracking, kiosk entertainer purchases, non-kiosk entertainer purchases); front door sales; employee time clock process; consolidated reporting across all individual solutions; and back office reporting.

CCS stresses the importance of a single platform solution. They’ve witnessed club managers, night after night, going through their closeout process, which involved taking and combining information from many different independent manual and IT processes. Besides the fact that there is opportunity for data entry mistakes, as well as nefarious activity, it took time to do it and it delayed their closeout of the day with waitresses, bartenders, front door people, and entertainers. Plus, they need all the data summarized and compiled so that it could be sent off to the owner or headquarters. Since CCS has all the data from all the individual processes on one platform, they already have all the data in one place and can organize data any way the club wants it (viewable screen or report) to make their closeout and HQ reporting requirements far more efficient.

eConnect is a technology company that develops intelligent software solutions for the gaming & hospitality industries. The software helps operators identify opportunities that impact profitability, guest service and business reputation.

eConnect’s artificial intelligence raises operational awareness by alerting team
members about mission-critical situations. Their POSConnect solution integrates with your existing POS system to listen to every transactional keystroke made on every POS terminal. Their Behavioral Intelligence Engine analyzes this data for suspicious activity. Employees who deviate from statistical norms are flagged from the system for review. When synchronized with video, operators can quickly identify if there are procedural errors or if theft is occurring.

With the combined knowledge gained from POS transactional information analysis and video surveillance, POSConnect can quickly detect internal employee theft and use a state-of-the-art Behavioral Intelligence Engine to proactively determine which employees are operating outside the trend of the rest of their peers, thus providing actionable information.

The system is able to work with all major POS systems and surveillance equipment, meaning you can integrate POSConnect with your existing system and start enacting reliable POS theft prevention strategies before employee theft threatens your bottom line.
