An advisory, lending and investment company needed a stock count to validate the retail value of items in stores and warehouse, so required RGIS to provide the following:

  • Validate the retail cost of stock both in stores and in the warehouse
  • All backroom stock, shop floor stock including mannequin and window display merchandise to be checked
  • Accuracy verification of third party counting
  • Record any errors
  • To be completed during normal working hours with no disruption to business


An advisory, lending and investment company partnered with RGIS to complete the stock retail value validation project, and provided the following:

  • Recorded the retail value of the item counted and number of units/pairs counted
  • Recorded the variance to the expected amount and asked for reasons to why there was a variance, recorded the reasons
  • Verified a minimum of 10% of all areas in stores and warehouse
  • Additional random checks in stores and warehouse for accuracy
  • Communicated every 30-45 minutes with the Store Manager or Inventory Lead as to progress, verification accuracy, percentage of completeness and value variance
  • Noted whether the areas were counted as either:
  • Auto Quantity (AQ) – all items scanned individually
  • Multi-Quantity (MQ) – one item of a group scanned and a quantity entered
  • Inventory Assessment Forms using objective scoring and constructive commentary


An advisory, lending and investment company found by outsourcing the stock retail value validation project to RGIS, the following results were achieved:

  • Stock count was completed with retail value
  • The customer had an understanding of the total retail stock value, with accurate reporting in each store and within the warehouse
  • All variances of value were recorded with reason why
