More efficient. Less intrusive.

Clients who work with Instant Inventory Service for the first time are always surprised at how fast and efficient we are. We’ve spent the last 40 years honing our inventory and verification processes.

Here are some of the reasons our service stands out:

Experienced Team Icon

An experienced team

Each person on our team has over 15 years of inventory experience. Our deep knowledge of the products and the process make us faster and more efficient.

Less Intrusive Icon

Less intrusive

Because we require less people and less time to do your inventory, we’re less intrusive. We also eliminate interruptions by doing our own price checks if a product in the database doesn’t have a price.

Inventory Software Icon

Our custom-built
inventory software

We developed one of the first automated inventory systems in the industry. Our integrated scanner and software shave hours off our counting time and help ensure meticulously accurate inventories. (See more below.)

Long Term Partnerships Icon


Our tenured staff and low turnover rate mean you’ll see the same familiar faces every time we complete your inventory. That consistency builds trust and long-lasting relationships.

Confidential Icon

and impartial

We keep all information confidential, including pricing and customer information. You can also rest assured our inventories are unbiased and impartial.

Minimal Impact Icon

Minimal impact
on your sales

Because it takes us less time to do the inventory, there’s less inventory movement, with minimum impact to your sales.

Flexible Scheduling Icon

Flexible scheduling

We’ll conduct inventories based on your needs, whether that’s before, during or after business hours.

On its own, our customized software can be a gamechanger for increasing inventory efficiency. But add to that the nimble fingers of our inventory team (we average 15,000+ keystrokes an hour) and you have seriously efficient inventory auditors. We use a full-sized 10-key pad, which adds to our speed and helps eliminate errors.

What clients say about
our inventory service

“We’ve worked with Instant Inventory Service for five years and they came highly recommended by our accountant. The first time we used them was after the sudden death of our owner. It was such a relief to have their team come in and conduct a full inventory of our store. I was shocked that what would have taken us a week took them only a few hours. We haven’t looked back since. I would highly recommend Instant Inventory Service to any business. Their team is trustworthy, efficient and friendly.”

Lindsay Schlichting

Store Manager, Medicine Chest Pharmacy Inc.

“I’ve worked in the liquor store industry for 30 years, and I use Instant Inventory Service because of their integrity and experience—they really know their products and margins. They’re also easy to work with, prompt and offer great customer service. I’ve worked with other inventory service providers, and I can easily say that Instant Inventory Service is the best in Minnesota.”

Peggy Scheeler

Business Broker

“Instant Inventory’s flexibility and willingness to accommodate any and every customer request really sets them apart from other companies. They take the time to review our pricing file for details, such as pack size accuracy, saving time post-inventory determining issues related to our data. They also review our inventory count with historical information, alerting us to any anomalies. Their team is extremely easy to work with and second to none when it comes to professional service. We trust and appreciate the excellent, accurate inventory service they provide!”
