We see soda vendors frequently committing fraud in restaurants or other general store situations. Liquor and alcohol distributors are no different, especially if the individual reps work on commission. When a vendor travels to so many different stores, they start to develop a sense for who is using bottle security and other precautionary measures, and who is open for the taking
One of the most common ways is by falsifying the shipments. It is important to verify the manifests on each of the shipments to the actual product being received. I see situations where instead of a premium liquor being delivered, the store gets a case of well instead.
Another way the vendors steal from you is by taking back outdated product and either taking extra bottles, or by taking more expensive bottles than what they give you credit for. If you can, use the EASy bottle to prevent this kind of switch.
The vendor can’t take the high-end goods that still have bottle security on them. The Alpha Security Bottle Locks prevent anyone, including vendors, from taking bottles of alcohol and liquor. With the bottle locks still on, you can then verify each bottle is correct and that were given proper credit from the vendor. It would be very brazen for a vendor to try and walk out of a store with bottles that still have the bottle locks attached to them.
