The inventory specificities for the brands of do-it-yourself

In a few years, Ivalis became a real inventory expert for this retail industry. Called upon by major do-it-yourself brands, the Ivalis group developed a solid experience which nowadays makes it the leader in this segment. Philippe Guéguin, Quality Manager of Ivalis France, knows this sector very well because he has supported several major brands in their plans of stocks inventory outsourcing. For him, « a quality inventory in this sector rests upon teamwork between the store and the teams from Ivalis. Stronger the relation is, the more the inventory is reliable and effective. We often succeed in setting up such relations with the teams from the stores, as time goes past we form but one and only squad/team».

What our clients think about it:

«We realize that we are faced with inventory professionals…»

«Our points of sale are difficult to inventory: high sets of shelves, sometimes there is only one product per cardboard box, stock inventories for stone floors to be done by the square meter…»
