The Problem

After years of growth for Retail Asset Solutions' (RAS) stock taking system, it had become a complex set of custom built databases. RAS recognised the need to consolidate logic to allow for future growth, and turned to Avco Systems to architect and develop a solution.

The Result

Designed and built a new stock taking system that automatically handles the download of required stock information for a count. This meant no longer requiring an auditor to manually locate stock information, and stock count job data is easily synced between the central system and the laptops via the web interface.
