What is cycle count?

A cycle count is an inventory management technique used to regularly audit a subset of items within a business's inventory.  

Unlike a full-scale physical inventory count (also known as a "wall-to-wall" count) where all items are counted at once, a cycle count focuses on counting a specific group of items on a predetermined schedule, often on a rotating basis. The goal of cycle counting is to maintain accurate inventory records and identify discrepancies between recorded quantities and actual stock levels. 

What is cycle count used for?

Businesses use cycle counting to ensure that recorded inventory is accurate, reducing the risk of stockouts and financial losses. Regular audits identify discrepancies, aiding in risk management, and contributing to operational efficiency. Insights gained from cycle counts support compliance, customer satisfaction, and data-driven decision-making.
