The ability to Monitor, Control and Research data from our real-time reporting system improves the stock take process significantly.

Monitoring capability provides visibility of:

  • Store’s receipt of equipment and preparation tasks via interactive checklists
  • Number of areas set up and percent completion of stock take and close rate
  • Number of sections audited and recounted during a count
  • Stores outside completion tolerances identified through customised email alerts

Control is gained through:

  • Ability to research a UPC/SKU in a single store or throughout the company
  • Selection of areas for audit based on high shrink SKU’s or value
  • Confirmation that each store associate is audited
  • Generation of forced recounts based on initial variance data
  • Ability to monitor login activity to ensure DM and RM ownership
  • Potential to view a list of all audits and discrepancies in failed audits real time

Research can further complete the picture by:

  • Reporting items counted in back stock not found on the sales floor
  • Comparing year-over-year data
  • Viewing audit and count accuracy by store and associate
  • Tracking stock take trends at store, department or SKU level
  • Assessing effectiveness of stock take procedures, audit policies and store planning
