The advisory, lending and investment company needed to count store stock on a global scale to facilitate a retailer going into administration, so required RGIS to provide the following:

  • Count all stock in each store including the shop floor, store room and window displays

  • Provide consistent reporting in the format requested


The advisory, lending and investment company partnered with RGIS to complete the global administration stock count project, and provided the following:

  • Scheduled experienced RGIS auditors to attend from different countries for each of the relevant stores
  • Ticketed all areas in store, placed one area ticket for each four-foot section.  Rail, four-way, rounder, table top, box, shelf, drawer and stack
  • 20% of the zones were checked by the store manager or area manager
  • Once the count was completed, RGIS provided a variance report for the store manager to review


The advisory, lending and investment company found by outsourcing the global administration stock count project to RGIS, the following results were achieved:

  • Reporting was received from all stores globally in the same format, and collated
  • Over 99% accuracy was achieved
  • The customer was able to value the sites correctly, and allowed them to have certainty in the accuracy of the complete global stock file
