Distribution Center Monthly Cycle Counts

An industrial equipment supplier that specializes in industrial automation, weighing, electrical equipment, service station equipment, industrial filtration, pumping, instrumentation and mineral transportation required the support of RGIS. The company has more than 70 years of experience in the world of measurement, weighing, control, automation and power.

The industrial equipment supplier needed cycle counts within their distribution center, so required RGIS to provide the following:

  • Monthly cyclical counts
  • A complete inventory count of the distribution center
  • Experienced auditors able to complete both types of counts
  • Variance reports to be created

The industrial equipment supplier partnered with RGIS to complete the industrial equipment monthly cycle count project, and provided the following:

  • Scheduled two teams of experienced RGIS auditors
  • A team of three RGIS auditors for 14 hours, to complete a monthly cycle count
  • A team of 15 RGIS auditors for three days to complete a full inventory count

The industrial equipment supplier found that by outsourcing the industrial equipment monthly cycle count project to RGIS to complete, the following was achieved:

  • 26,000 units of stock accurately counted on monthly cycle counts
  • 185,000 units of stock in main inventory count was accurately counted
  • Variance report identified missing stock
  • Did not need to use internal staff to complete the inventory counts
