Same day online reports

Our liquor stocktaking reports are always published on site and discussed fully with your food and beverage team. They detail stock results, analysis and action points. Customers with a compatible operational setup can also view their reports via our online portal.

Holistic customer service

Our liquor stocktaking package includes a customer service helpline, on-the-ground supervisory teams and a stock loss warnings system. From organising a stock take, to answering questions about your stock take results, to booking periodic review meetings, we always have someone available to help.

Exclusive add-ons
