Strahan has thousands of products. When they were completing their full annual stock take, or smaller frequent stock takes, they were a headache to organise. They had to manually create stock sheets for each product and print them out.
Strahan had to close for a full day while staff manually completed the stock take. Management had to resolve any errors manually and update the final stock take line by line.
This process was very time-consuming and any errors caused larger problems. It was inefficient and Strahan knew they needed a new method.
