Compliance auditing services
Since 1988 we have been assisting our clients with a wide range of compliance
Companies put in place procedures, rules and policies for good reason. Unfortunately
if compliance isn’t checked regularly, human nature often steps in and people start doing things
their own way. Sometimes the implications aren’t that great but when non-compliance is concerning
things like, cash, health & safety, availability and trading standards, the implications can
be far reaching and potentially very costly.
Our compliance auditing services can be tailored to meet your specific needs and then
regularly reviewed and changed to accommodate new requirements as businesses and markets develop and
evolve. What follows are some examples of previous and ongoing projects.
External cash checks can provide peace of mind that managers aren’t rolling their bankings or “borrowing” from
the takings without authorisation. It can also identify where bankings aren’t being made on time. Late
banking across a large network of retail stores can have a significant impact on working capital.
Experience has shown that a regime of random cash checks, keeps managers on their toes, gets money in
the bank on time and reduces the likelihood of managers dipping their fingers in the till.
We’ve undertaken several large picking auditing projects:
- to check the accuracy of the pick team
- auditing the performance of in-house picking audit teams
- evaluation projects comparing the efficiency or manual pick versus voice pick
Although the basic scope of these projects is very straightforward, the projects themselves have been very
varied and our services have been customised to meet the clients’ needs. We’re very efficient and accurate
at collecting and analysing data – it’s what we do best
When stock is in transit there is always a risk of stockloss. Delivery check projects have always been a
regular part of our business. We have checked deliveries at the good-in stage in retail stores and
distribution warehouses alike. We’ve also checked deliveries in distribution warehouses that have been
loaded awaiting dispatch and have done the same for clients with stock held in third party warehouses.
Stock can be checked by item or by case and variance reports immediately produced showing differences between
what should be there and what actually is there. As with all our services, we are always happy to tailor
this service to meet your needs.
Inaccurate system stock levels can only be a bad thing. Auto replenishment ordering systems cannot order
correctly so the business will have too much stock of some lines and too little stock of others. The one
certainty is that sales will be lost.
Perpetual inventory counts can be carried out in a number of different ways but the most important thing is
that they are done regularly and accurately. We can provide the staff, equipment and systems to assist you
with any perpetual inventory count requirements you might have. We’ll always be happy to discuss your needs.
Pricing, Point-of-Sale and Trading Standards Compliance
