Are you sure you are operating with full GP potential?
Do you have staff pilferage?
The Hospitality Industry is one of the largest employers within N.I. and as such, huge amounts of money are being generated; particularly within the Licensed Trade. Unfortunately this attracts temptations for the unscrupulous, and although stocktaking doesn’t stop the thief; it does highlight potential problems before they get “out of hand”.

Are you operating with excess stock and potentially out of date products?

Royal Portrush Golf Club has been using the services of stocktaking.com in excess of thirty years. They prepare, reconcile and analyse quarterly Pro Shop inventories, and monthly food and beverage stock audits. As specialists in the Hospitality Industry, we engaged Martin (managing partner of stocktaking.com) to prepare a Food & Beverage Consultation Report for the club in general; this was an invaluable report and was presented to the members in a very professional manner I have absolute confidence in Martin, and would recommend his company (stocktaking.com) to anyone who requires any form of stocktaking.
We use “stocktaking.com” on a very regular basis; they prepare fully quantified stock trading audits for our restaurants, bars, leisure facilities, spa and golf shop. Martin Dinsmore (managing partner), and his team are very professional, and have proved time and again, to be an effective and invaluable management tool.
“stocktaking.com” is one of The Pubs of Ulster’s preferred suppliers. In order to gain this accolade, Martin Dinsmore (managing partner) had to undergo an interview with our full committee. As we do not recommend frivolously, it was important that all aspects of his qualifications, business and ethics were acknowledged. With many stock takers, the result is all you get, with little or no explanation, “stocktaking.com” takes the time and effort to explain the impact of the stock results, highlighting where issues may lie and providing a detailed analysis line by line, product by product. They also have a finger on the pulse as to the lastest cost prices they are seeing in the industry and can guide an operator into where they may improve their margins both at cost price and RRP. Their expertise covers all areas of stock taking within our industry, and offers great value for money.

Martin Dinsmore and his expert team provide an efficient, friendly and professional audit and support service that no business should be without.”
"I know how vital it is to have regular professional stocktakes, and even though I have had EPoS in my shops for several years, “stocktaking.com” has proved invaluable in their expertise over the 20 years that they have been our stocktakers." I have found them to be extremely professional and flexible in the services that they provide and always willing to meet our changing requirements. I have no hesitation in recommending Martin Dinsmore and his company “stocktaking.com”
Stocktaking.com (formerly The Computer Accounting Bureau) has been involved with the Federation of Clubs for over 20 years; during this time Martin (senior partner) has been of great assistance to the Federation with his knowledge of the industry and willingness to advise clubs on stock related issues (whether they are a client or not). He has also written numerous articles which have been published in our Federation magazine. Stocktaking.com is very professional and discrete with all aspects of their service, and are highly recommended by the Federation.
We’ve been working with Martin and his team at Stocktaking.com for over ten years now using him twice a year to do a full inventory of our retail stores and warehouse facility. Martin was able to adapt to our system requirements very quickly and constantly over delivers with his standard of service. Stocktaking.com have been very professional in their approach and have developed a great working relationship with both myself and our staff around our various sites. Martin’s management of all our projects has always been very flexible, working around us when it really matters for year end reporting and for security insurance purposes. Most importantly we have found great value in Martins work, in that his teams are efficient in their work, keeping the cost to us at a minimum whilst getting results that are invaluable to our business.
Prior to setting up “The Bar Czar” I was involved with “Ultimate Leisure” which owned numerous bars and clubs throughout the U.K. It was imperative that I had complete control of each outlets stock, and their respective management reports. At that time “stocktaking.com” was employed to prepare our monthly trading reports, and were required to prepare their reports in a very limited time frame. “stocktaking.com” were very professional, and were able to complete their counts and furnish the respective reports on time and in a very user friendly format. Stocktaking.com is a very professional company, and I would have absolute faith in their integrity and working ethics.
As a company director employing in excess of 1,600 employees, and managing over 100 food & beverage outlets, I am only too aware of the importance of stock control. Food & beverage: Within our company portfolio, we manage several bars including Kingspan Stadium (formerly known as Ravenhill) and employ stocktaking.com to prepare regular beverage trading reports which are invaluable in monitoring profitability and potential pilferage. Retail: As we prepare monthly trading figures for each of our retail outlets, we rely on “stocktaking.com” to count and value our holding figures on a monthly basis. Inventories: There have been a number of occasions when we have used “stocktaking.com” to prepare photographic catalogues, detailing a full and concise inventory of all hardware and stock within certain premises; this is an excellent method of recording and reconciling assets (from appliances to linen, crockery to kitchen utensils, etc.).
