Book Distributor’s Inaugural Warehouse Count

A book distributor situated in Brazil required the support of RGIS. The book distributor stock a wide range of books from Animals and Anthropology to Tourism and Umbanda.


The book distributor needed to perform a warehouse inventory to update current stock quantities, so required RGIS to provide the following:

  • Complete a full stock count of the warehouse
  • No disruption to business
  • Accurate reporting to be provided


The book distributor partnered with RGIS to complete the wall-to-wall warehouse book count project, and RGIS provided the following:

  • Scheduled a team of 20 experienced RGIS auditors
  • Organised two 8-hour shifts to complete the count outside working hours
  • All books in the warehouse were counted by barcode
  • Where the barcode was not registered on the system, it was subsequently added


The book distributor found by outsourcing the wall-to-wall warehouse book count project to RGIS, the following results were achieved:

  • Accurately counted just under 170,000 items
  • All stock quantities were accurately updated on the customer’s system, including financial values
  • The customer was very satisfied with the accuracy of the counts, it being the first inventory they had had completed
