Your inventory is one of your largest assets and is an important part of your financial and operational structure. The accuracy of the physical count is of utmost importance. All-Star Inventory Services offers accuracy and integrity combined with methods and equipment to fit your inventory requirements.

Inventory is our business and we strive to be the best. We are a full-time and professional service, specializing in cost, retail, and itemized inventories. We customize our methods to meet your requirements.

We perform inventories using various methods:

  • Using data collection devices and comprehensive software that contain extensive functionality for collecting and processing financial, part number (SKU) and asset inventory data;
  • Barcode Scanners that have the capability to scan a wide variety of barcode symbology, including Code 39, 128, UPC and I2 of 5
  • Manual data collection using customized count sheets or customer provided count sheets
  • Provide additional personnel, consulting and supervision to assist internal physical inventory counts and audits

With each Financial inventory, we can provide the customer with electronic data files or reports containing:

  • Location Total Report: We divide your store into identifiable physical locations to assure everything is counted and allows easier auditing. This report lists totals of each location.
  • Category/Department Report: We can assign categories or departments to your merchandise to determine your costs and retail prices per category.
  • Location/Category Report: This report lists the costs and retail prices for each category within each location.
  • Inventory History Report: The location and category totals from prior inventories (if previous inventories were counted by All-Star) to determine inventory trends.

With each SKU and itemized inventory, we can provide the customer with electronic data files or reports containing:

  • An itemized listing of the item, quantity and location, as well as price, condition, etc. as requested by the customer
  • An itemized listing of items that were not counted, but listed on the customer’s database
  • An itemized listing of items that were counted but not listed on the customer’s database
  • An itemized listing of variances of the actual count and the customer’s database
  • Summarized listings per item, location, condition, category, or department
  • Summarized financial listings based on cost or retail
  • A reconciliation between the customer’s databases and GL with the actual physical inventory
  • Audit reports during the inventory

In most cases, our reports are available on-site to the customer at the completion of the inventory.

For those customers requiring itemized inventory information in other than a hardcopy, we provide data on CD in most common formats (ASCII, EXCEL, ACCESS, CSV, etc.) flashdrives and via email. We have the technical expertise to work with your programmers and software company to assure correct file format and compatibility.

We can upload our inventory to many POS systems. We will work with your POS vendor to ensure smooth inventory transfer.
