Group7 offers inventories per Skype
Since March, customers and auditors do not have to be personally present for an inventory in logistics centres. The logistics services provider Group7 offers inventories per Skype at all warehousing locations in Germany – in total these services cover an area of more than 220,000 sqm.
A Skype inventory proceeds as follows: upon completion of the main inventory, the numbers are transmitted electronically to the relevant auditor, who then selects a number of articles as random samples. In a next step, Group7 organises a video conference in which the articles in the individual storage positions on site are checked against the previously reported numbers.
“We have worked at full speed to help our customer to conduct reliable annual inventories even during the corona crisis,” says Günther Jocher, member of the board at Group7. (mw)
