Cycle Counter Staffing For Efficient Inventory Management

Cycle counter staffing is responsible for cycle counting, an auditing procedure whereby a company’s physical inventory is counted continuously to match inventory records without interrupting the business operations.

Various cycle counting methods can be used depending on the nature of the business. When counting physical items, high-volume items and critical assets are usually counter on a more frequent basis. Other cycle counting methods include random sample, hybrid, opportunity-based, and control group counting.

Understanding the Role of Cycle Counter Staffing

Cycle counters are responsible for regularly performing counts on stock and recording the necessary adjustments on specific products.

Cycle counters initiate the process by reviewing inventory records stored in an accurate database. A cycle count report is then generated to be used as a means of comparison. Then begins the physical count process, where inventory descriptions, locations, and quantities are matched against the cycle count report for discrepancies. Should any differences be identified, they are then taken to the stock manager for reconciliation before trying to identify if there is any pattern or reason for the errors. Inventory counting procedures or policies are then amended wherever necessary. Finally, adjustments will be made to the inventory record database. This entire process repeats in cycles.

Benefits of Hiring Cycle Counters

Cycle counter staffing often splits a business’ inventory into different categories for counting so that business operations do not have to be halted.

This strategy minimizes the need for safety stock, reduces overhead costs, and streamlines the physical counting process.

Additional benefits of cycle counter staffing include lower audit fees, elimination of employee overtime costs, timely theft detection, reduced inventory write-offs, improved operational efficiency, fewer future errors, increased sales, precise inventory assessments, enhanced customer service, and ultimately, a higher order fulfillment rate with fewer mistakes.
