A large commercial and consumer equipment service provider wanted to convert to electronic counts. The equipment service provider required evidence that the electronic process would be less expensive. They decided to hire a vendor to use their existing, manual process for two years before switching over.
This change occurred over three years. For the first two years, RGIS teams finished all counts with pen and paper in one night.
The third year, teams implemented RGIS equipment and software into the inventory program.
The new process was much less labour-intensive and thus less expensive. RGIS’ proprietary software and hardware allowed for a quick data return and an easy inventory process.
The first year, RGIS determined the actual cost of the client’s inventory. Due to the complicated manual process, each location cost an average of $1,683 to complete.
After implementing RGIS’ inventory software, each site cost an average of $494.
