Partner System Rental
Partner System Rental is a program developed by WIS International to assist businesses like yours with their stock counts. Partner System Rental combines the benefit of utilising your employees to perform counts with WIS International equipment and an experienced, independent 3rd party WIS Inventory Manager to lead the process. The WIS Inventory Manager will ensure your store employees receive the training, assistance and all technical support they need to conduct an accurate and efficient stock count.
While your employees get daily experience that makes them experts in areas of merchandising and customer service, they probably aren’t experienced in taking an accurate stock count. If you are relying on your employees to be the experts in taking stock once or twice a year, you may not have the checks and balances in place to ensure the most accurate count due to:
• Inexperience using rental equipment
• Poor procedural compliance resulting in missed or duplicate counts
• Lack of independent, third party objectivity and auditing
• Misclassification of merchandise
• Improper application of mark-downs
