In this article, we are going to list some key takeaways.
Schedule stock count
Perform the stock count outside of opening hours.
If you have started a stock count with your store open, then remember to scan the items in FrontZapp before they are sold in the POS and do not count any returned items.
What happens when you reconcile stock
Stock count will be reconciled against what you had in stock at the exact time the stock count was created.
This implies that all items you currently count must be in sync with your actual on-hand physical inventory at that given time.
Perform a stock count with multiple people or multiple devices
If there is more than one person or more than one device involved in taking the same stock count, remember to create only one stock count and ensure that everyone involved opens the same one instead of creating a new one.
Use 'Post-it' notes to write down the name of the person who has counted and at what time. Place these on the shelves as they finish counting.
This is to avoid double counting and to remember what has already been counted.
Ensure that all counted products are uploaded to the server
Make sure the device used has a stable WiFi / 4G connection.
