Discover how Datascan addresses the primary challenges faced by retailers in inventory accounting. With the transformation of retail stores into distribution centers, retailers struggle to maintain accurate inventory counts. Datascan’s strategy emphasizes the importance of BOPIS (buy online, pick up in-store) as a key industry term and highlights the challenges it poses.

Having correct inventory visibility is crucial, both on the sales floor and in the backroom. Retailers with well-managed and accounted-for stock inventories can ensure smooth order fulfillment, from shipping products to in-store pick-ups. However, if inventory is not accurately tracked, it can lead to stockouts and customer dissatisfaction.

Datascan specializes in addressing these inventory challenges. They excel in managing and accounting for inventory by ensuring accurate tracking and efficient order fulfillment. Their expertise became even more evident during the pandemic, as the retail landscape shifted dramatically.

The paradigm shift towards multi-purpose store visits, such as order pickups, reflects the changing retail landscape. Datascan is dedicated to supporting retailers as they navigate change and enhance the customer experience. Their mission is to provide fast and accurate inventory counting solutions that enable retailers to meet customer demands.
