Start the cycle right
Inventory season is wrapping up, but that doesn’t mean you should put your inventory scanner away! This week we’ll explore how to create a plan to run cycle counts periodically throughout the year. Plus, learn what else you can do to stay on top of things this year.
Cycle counts: Cycle Counts are an excellent way to keep your inventory organized, and get set up for an easy annual full-store inventory. Here’s what you need to get started:
- Make sure you have an account on Ascend University. Then, once you’re logged into the site, select Training > Inventory > Cycle Counts to watch our short videos (numbered 1 through 6) on the full Cycle Count process.
- Make sure any staff that is helping with Cycle Counts have the correct Ascend User permissions.
- And finally, make sure your Inventory Scanner is up and running! If it hasn’t been used in a while, make sure to reboot it before doing anything else. Then, if you’re having any issues with the scanner, check out our troubleshooting video and documentation.

Your computers help keep your business moving, so avoid unnecessary shutdowns and speed up your workflows by keeping those computer updated! If you’re using an outdated PC, you might be contributing to a less-than-stellar customer service experience. And employees are probably feeling it, too.
