Every year merchants face a task that’s fun for a few, but a lot of work for everyone. Ware talking about the inventory count at the end of the year.
In Germany, every merchant is obliged to count his inventory if he is also required to draw up a balance sheet, his total turnover is more than 500,000 € (incl. tax free sales) or his profit is more than 25,000 € during the fiscal year.
In addition to this statutory duty there are other good reasons to carry out an inventory count. Especially after turbulent periods such as Black Friday or Christmas an inventory count can help increase data accuracy again.
The most time consuming part is probably counting the items itself. To facilitate this work, there are many little helpers that can simplify this process. We would like to explain based on a real world example how cobby and a smartphone can help.
