SmartCount

Move away from third-party inventory services and achieve 25–50% in cost savings when you perform your own physical inventory counts. With meticulous guidance at every step, it’s easier to plan, faster to execute and much more accurate.

Accurate Counts Your Way

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.

Boost Inventory Accuracy

Your teams know your inventory best. Put inventory counts in their hands and automate data capture for more accurate counts, better in-stock ratios and faster fulfillment rates. Your workflows will be more efficient and your sales will increase.

Lower Costs

Save money on third-party fees and reduce the redundancy of checking third-party work when you use your own labor 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 canceling or showing up short-staffed.

Reopen Faster

Remove the need to set-up or clean-up after third-party vendors. Return to routine operations faster and with less disruption so your stores can re-open quickly and your employees can spend more time with customers.

Reduce Risks

Protect staff by limiting outside labor, relying on internal teams who know to follow your company’s health and safety guidelines, reducing risks for your employees and your business.

Control Shrink and Loss

Identify which store is in trouble and exactly where theft and fraud occurred with real-time visibility of inventory counts per SKU.

Monitor Leaks from All Sources

Keep accurate tabs on inventory to avoid losing dollars from lost, damaged or stolen merchandise and prioritize corrective actions with a customizable dashboard of available reports.

Keep the Store Secure

Reduce security risks by relying on your own trusted teams rather than unvetted third-party temps for any and all counting events.

Make It Accurate. Make It Count.
