What clients say about
our inventory service

“The team at Instant Inventory Service is professional, thoughtful, thorough, and extremely accurate. They use cutting-edge counting techniques that our finance team and internal and external audit teams have vetted. Knowing we can rely on them to provide top-notch inventory counting and verification services relieves the stress of verifying our inventories. They’ve counted our Medical Supply Stores, Gift Shops, Pharmacies and Central Pharmacy inventories, often arriving well before 6:00 am. and staying until we were completed. They’ve also come in on holidays, weekends or whenever we need them. They’re very dependable and a pleasure to work with.”

Robert Scrimshaw

“Instant Inventory Service is the best in the business! We have been using their service for over 20 years and continue to be impressed by their professionalism and experience. We can always count on them for accurate inventory counts and detailed reports. Gary, Jen, Amy, and Rob are all a pleasure to work with and we look forward to seeing them each year. Highly recommend!”

Leslie Zimmerman

Accountant, Hub Hobby Center, Inc.

“IIS is great to work with. They are in and out quickly with little disruption. I’m always amazed how easy it is to have them in the stores. Getting the preliminary report as they leave is a nice perk as well.”

Scott Benson

Registered Pharmacist, Goodrich Pharmacy

“I would highly recommend IIS when you want your inventory done right the first time. They’re very easy to work with and flexible finding a time that works best for my business schedule. When doing inventory for a new client, especially a liquor store, there’s always a chance things can get messed up when dealing with A LOT of sku’s. They come in with a plan and are done and ready in time for me to open for business at 11 a.m.”
