Good people are at the heart of any successful business, and Retail & Asset Solutions employs more than 2,500 highly trained stock-takers and auditors throughout the UK and Ireland.

As specialists in retail stocktaking services, stock-control management and reporting, we can help your business minimise shrinkage, disruption and fraud. Effective stock control can also help you reduce loss and manage risk.

Our experienced management teams deliver practical training and undertake regular performance reviews so that we achieve consistently high levels of accuracy and productivity.

Our Bespoke Start2™ Retail and Wholesale Software

Since the 2018 management buyout, RAS has invested in the latest hardware, and developed in-house software to improve accuracy, visibility, productivity and efficiency. Our cloud-based Start2™ software can also work offline so that our systems aren’t disrupted by poor network coverage.

Start2™ can be configured for each client, allowing us to deliver bespoke reporting. The system also enables clients to monitor count activity in real time across multiple events.

Innovative Paperless Reporting Systems

In line with our drive for sustainability, RAS operates a paperless reporting system. By using tablets across the board, we have eradicated paper, printers and cartridges from our business.

The paperless checking system is ideal for clients carrying out variance reports, while the latest 3D scanners allow store staff to carry out blind checks quickly and effectively.

Our systems are designed to integrate with yours, giving clients access to a secure network that delivers information seamlessly. By making sure the right stock gets to the right place at the right time, we can support your business when it really matters.
