About Bevintel LLC

Since 1990, Bevinco franchisees have offered liquor inventory management services, using proprietary software to perform audits and then work with bars to make stocktaking easier and reduce waste, spillage and theft. In 2011, Bevinco was acquired by Inteliworx, which owns InteliTap, a company that provides technology and equipment to monitor draft beer quality. The company now franchises under the name Bevintel. Bevintel has been featured in the Spike TV series, Bar Rescue.
