Improve Schedule Flexibility
Take control of your inventory events when you schedule them on your terms and timelines and with your own associates. Make schedule changes when you need them, avoiding the hassle and complexity that come with third- party services.

Save money on third-party fees and reduce the redundancy of checking third-party work when you use your own labour for physical inventory counts. SmartCount empowers associates to take control of inventory, improving accuracy and driving cost savings.
Gain More Control
End the frustration of working with unreliable third-party vendors. Control counting events with your own teams and forget worrying about vendors cancelling or showing up short-staffed.
