RGIS started from go-getters and believers. In 1958, the Nicholson family simply needed extra cash to provide for their families, and decided to perform accurate inventory service for grocers as a part time job. At that moment, Retail Grocery Inventory Services, or RGIS for short, began its historical journey in creating an emerging industry. What started from a car, briefcase, and calculator is now a global leader in the inventory industry, expanding across 40 countries with trusted technologies and thousands of employees who all live and breathe the same values. The world has changed in the past 60 years, but RGIS’ legacy and passion remain the same!
With 34,000 employees and more than 200 offices around the world, we have the resources in the right place to reliably and efficiently complete any project.
