What Does An Ideal Inventory Counting Solution Look Like for Retailers Worldwide?


On this episode of Keeping Count, a podcast from the experts at Datascan, Host Tyler Kern talked with Gerry Meca, Chief Information Officer at Datascan. They talked about some of the trends in the industry and what they will look like moving forward.

Meca joined Datascan as VP and Chief Information Officer in March 2020. He previously worked with Dr. Pepper and some other companies and has seen firsthand the importance of inventory management. At Dr. Pepper, he got experience with Datascan technology and what goes into keeping track in a warehouse. He also got a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into inventory in retail environments.

When it comes to inventory at Datascan, one thing is paramount: “This may come as a surprise, but it’s all about accuracy,” Meca said. “The philosophy that we have is all about providing a retailer an easy-to-use, flawless device and software application for counting the inventory quickly and giving them immediate feedback on how well the store is post-count.”

Datascan is also looking to the future. With their technology and software, they want to tell how a store will do when they do the count. As part of this philosophy, they believe that stores should be counting their inventory with their own people.

“They count on them for cash, cash registers, credit cards, and other somewhat trusting aspects of the business, and yet inventory management sometimes falls to a third-party,” Meca said.
