Automate Cycle Counts for Your Retail Store

Save time while increasing stock accuracy with Stocktakes.

What Is Cycle Counting?

When you have constantly changing SKUs, especially across several locations or sales channels, managing your retail store inventory can be challenging. Cycle counts are one of the best ways to ensure what you have on your shelves matches what’s in your books.

Cycle counting is the process of counting small sections of your retail store inventory. By cycling through your entire stock on a regular basis you ensure correct stock counts.

How To Automate Cycle Counts With Thrive

Thrive will highlight any stock discrepancies and automatically update all your sales channels with the correct stock count at once. View and download previous Stocktake reports to see patterns where errors typically occur, like receiving inventory, to improve processes.

Additionally, require a manager’s approval with user permissions before submitting any inventory updates.

Scan To Count

Using a barcode scanner saves time and increases accuracy. Eliminate writing or typing your entire inventory count by scanning each product’s barcode to tally.


Set up routine stock counts daily, weekly, or even quarterly so your inventory levels never get out of hand. Easily duplicate a Stocktake to be used again and again, saving your team time.

Audit Logs

Make changes to previous Stocktakes, view discrepancy reports, and even cancel one if you never got around to finishing it.

Blind Counts

Increase accuracy and employee accountability by hiding the expected inventory levels during a count.

Stocktake Reporting

Thrive does the math for you with pre-built Stocktake reporting. Have visibility on products that are due for a count and get an overhead view of all adjustments and discrepancies from each count.

Custom Notes

Take detailed notes if the physical inventory doesn’t match your records. Look into any differences to see if you can identify where the deltas are coming from.
