From our earliest days of involvement with retail systems and their support needs it became evident that a different approach was needed to the traditional method used for stocktaking. Many of our clients were experiencing problems with the reliability and accuracy of their stocktakes. It was taking many hours to complete stocktakes with frequent visits to HQ to download results and the cost of purchasing sufficient scanning devices was proving to be a hurdle.

A new breed of mobile scanning devices and the growing interest in cloud managed software solutions provided the Inventas team with the opportunity to create a radical alternative solution to stocktaking. We set about developing a solution that was more affordable, reliable, accurate and less labour intensive.

Our original stocktaking solution called I-Stock has been and is still in use with a number of retailers including Regatta, J&S accessories, PWP Sports Scotland, Snooty Frox and Scorpion Shoes. In 2016, Inventas embarked on the development of a new version of I-Stock called i-Stocktake. This new version of our stocktaking solution is now in service and attracting interest from a wide variety of retailers both large and small.

i-Stocktake incorporates all of the enhancements and features suggested by our clients, uses the latest and most advanced Mobile scanning technology available today and is now a product that is available for rent or purchase for stocktaking and other types of mobile data capture in most retail, wholesale, e-commerce or distribution environments.
