For the past 45 years, Datascan has been a leader in the retail stock taking industry. Consistently a pioneer in the industry, Datascan develops innovative solutions that advance the use and value of technology during the retail stock take process. Currently, we collect and analyse stock take data using the industry’s most sophisticated web-based solutions.

Datascan was the first to introduce the idea of ‘self-scan’ when the market began to move away from manual stock take. The Datascan philosophy has always been to develop strong partnerships with its’ clients.
