Supermarket Fixed Asset Count

One of the world’s largest food retailers employing over 500,000 people and serving millions of customers every week in Asia, America and Europe, including Great Britain and Northern Ireland required the support of RGIS. The supermarket chain is the largest food retailer in Ireland, with a proud record of investment and job creation, and employ 9000 colleagues across over 170 stores.


The supermarket chain needed to identify the location of various assets, due to them being moved between stores without the asset register being updated, so required RGIS to provide the following:

  • Count all assets in chosen stores
  • Tag new assets
  • Update the existing asset register with correct data and locations


The supermarket chain partnered with RGIS to complete the retail asset count project, and provided the following:

  • Scheduled a team of three experienced RGIS auditors per store
  • Training completed a week prior to the event
  • Verified existing assets
  • Checked locations were correct on the asset register and updated accordingly
  • Tagged new assets


The supermarket chain found by outsourcing the retail asset count project to RGIS, the following results were achieved:

  • Identified old assets had not been removed from the asset register
  • Updated asset register with the new assets that had not previously been added
  • Identified assets the customer was unaware of, which could then be utilised in other stores
  • The customer saved money, by not over-ordering assets
