The advisory, lending and investment company needed a solution to count stock, after an acquisition of stock from a company that had gone into administration within a third party warehouse.

The company required RGIS to provide the following:

  • Complete the count within two weeks in order for the sale to proceed
  • Count all stock which was in a third party logistics warehouse
  • Assess all requirements in the warehouse prior to the stock count, due to Covid-19 restrictions
  • Be prepared to count stock at high levels


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

Initial site visit was arranged to identify:

  • Health and safety issues
  • Covid-19 compliance
  • Stock at high levels
  • Built a bespoke program for the stock count
  • Scheduled four experienced RGIS auditors for three days
  • Utilised fork lifts on-site to access high level pallets


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

  • A complete ground level count of all stock
  • Pallet count on high level stock
  • Spot checks on high pallets
  • Gave the customer confidence that the stock they were buying was actually onsite
  • Reporting provided with accurate data
  • Counts completed within tight time-frame given so the sale could proceed
