  • The process to take less time than the previous internal inventory of five days
  • To provide two inventories per year; a partial inventory count in June and full inventory count in December
  • Two large warehouses and a five-acre yard needed to be counted


The customer partnered with RGIS to complete the wall-to-wall inventory project, and provided the following:

  • A team of experienced RGIS auditors using proprietary inventory scanners
  • RGIS Project Management to ensure the inventory project met customer requirements
  • The RGIS team accurately counted 1,000,000 pieces and completed all recounts
  • Variances confirmed and completed during the inventory project


The manufacturer of railway track maintenance equipment found by outsourcing the wall-to-wall inventory project to RGIS, the following was achieved:

  • The project was completed over a single weekend, using half the amount of time the customer used with the previous internal inventory process
  • RGIS accurately counted 100,000 square feet of warehouse space and a five-acre outdoor storage yard
  • The business did not have to shut down production during the work week
  • Specific recounts and variance checks were performed to ensure an accurate inventory was delivered to the customer
