Manage your operation better

Improve yield

Control stockholding

Optimise margins

Premium stock take solutions

Our stocktaking solutions can be tailored to any budget and operation. Choose from our selection of basic to professional online and onsite stocktaking and inventory services to match the needs of your business.

On-site stock takes

Used by our customers to successfully reduce losses and boost gross profits, routine stock takes are a proven approach to establishing better stock control. Our bespoke and flexible stock take programs can be agreed to any frequency, scale of operation and budget. Plus, we guarantee that for every stock take we complete on-site, you’ll receive the report and recommendations that very same day.

Remote stock takes

Send us your stock data, collected by your own internal teams and we’ll process and analyse the results for you remotely, as your independent auditors. You’ll still get the fantastic benefits and insight that we’re best known for. Interspersed with on-site stock takes to remove risk, our professional remote stock takes are a great add-on to any internal stock control process you employ.

Skinny stock takes

A stripped down version of our traditional in-depth stocktaking service. Great for those operating within smaller budgets. Get top-line operational data and recommendations to stay in control of stock and profits. This much simpler and quicker audit still includes a stock count and a report at the end of it, but will analyse basic information only, such as the closing stock figure and GP results.

Spot stock checks

A mini stock take that can form part of a larger compliance audit. This stock check covers a limited number of product lines and helps you keep track of discrepancies between software data and real stock on hand. A great way to combine your stocktaking and compliance needs, encourage best practice stock control, prevent petty theft and fraudulent schemes that displace, use, or resell stock.

Stock valuations

A complete and industry approved stock report for Year End. As a recommended supplier for several accounting firms and hospitality finance teams, our stock valuations are trusted to deliver the required data to help finalise accounts at the end of the financial year. They’re also perfect for those that are planning to buy or sell a business and can be followed up by our fixtures and fittings valuation services too.

Inventory stock counts

Get an accurate inventory catalogue for your stock or products. Ideal for supply chain, warehouses, distribution centres and other storage venues that hold specialist products, especially if that inventory covers assets which are spread far and wide geographically. We’re the right people for any large scale stocktaking job and can count unscannable products, as well as use barcode scanners where required.


Stock control software

Get your latest stock take reports instantly and view stock take results and recommendations via our online stock control portal. With handy tools that give you control over access management and your stocktaking calendar, our stock control software makes it easier than ever before stay on top of stock control.
