Pick Accuracy

Reliable data, leading to reduced shrinkage and increased sales.

Pick Accuracy

'Customer Availability', 'Sales', 'Shrinkage'. At Orridge, we know that these performance measures matter to you. We offer cost-effective solutions which will support you in improving these performance measures across your entire business. 

The effort retailers invest in tackling shrinkage and availability issues is often misaligned with the root cause of the problem. Studies have shown that the majority of shrinkage and availability problems are self-inflicted through process issues, leading to corruption of the shrinkage and availability driver - the stock file. 

The vast distribution centre operation is driven by a series of complex receiving and picking processes. It's during this phase of the operation that mistakes are made. If the stock received in store isn't accurate more remedial action in store is required to make corrections. Higher shrinkage and lower availability are the consequences. 

The Orridge pick accuracy audit solution is simple. Not only will it improve your shrinkage and availability, it will save your business money. 

Orridge will provide a team of skilled auditors to work with your distribution teams to ensure that what is being picked accurately reflects what is required by your stores, by conducting regular sample audits of your stores' deliveries.

Our work will provide you with a robust delivery accuracy figure. We are able to report our findings in real time as well as investigating the root-cause so any systemic issues can be rectified. 

Our audits are flexible, independent and accurate and can be tailored to suit your needs. We actively encourage our customers to give us the freedom to work in their best interests. This enables us to provide meaningful data as unpredicted audits are random and far reaching.

Load Adherence

The final hurdle in the logistics operation can often have the most impact. Loading a vehicle for despatch is straightforward, but mistakes can impact store shrinkage and stock availability.

Good Faith Receiving

Good Faith Receiving (GFR) is an audit process which is helping to challenge the convention of retail supply chain management.

Origin Checks

Orridge believes that to provide a full service to our customers, we need to start at the beginning. Our origin checks do precisely that.

Direct Store Deliveries

Orridge offers a service whereby these supplier-to-store deliveries can be audited on a routine basis. Introduce this, eliminate the delivery checking in-store and instead accept them on a 'good faith' basis.

Warehouse & Distribution

Orridge understands that warehousing and distribution centres are a different proposition to counting in stores, which is why we provide specialist teams to facilitate timely and complete audits; be it a full warehouse count or perpetual inventory counting.


Orridge is firmly established as a leading stocktaking service provider on a pan-European basis
