AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- RGIS LLC, a provider of physical inventory services, and Retail Control Group (RCG), a store operations and shrink control consultancy, have announced a partnership to provide profit improvement services to the retail industry.

With this new partnership, RGIS and RCG are combining resources to provide physical inventory best practices with shrink reduction best practices, which they said guarantees improved profit opportunities for retailers.

"Retailers today are looking for solutions to improve store profit and no other two companies are better positioned to bring these vital services together to help retailers grow their profit," said Larry Miller, president at the RCG,

Retailers can expect all new levels of profit-improvement partnership when both companies are engaged, including improved pre-inventory preparation services; increased inventory accuracy verification; shrink loss diagnosis audits to determine the underlying causes of excessive shrink; specific shrink loss cure recommendations including pre- and post- inventory tracking analytics, manager training, technology recommendations and implementation/execution support; and store manager best-practices training services resulting in improved operational results.

"These are very competitive times for retailers, and we want to put our clients in the best competitively advantaged position as possible," said Bill Carpou, executive vice president for sales and marketing at RGIS. "RGIS and Retail Control Group are working to take inventory management and shrink prevention to new levels, helping to support both sales and profit growth."

RGIS takes retailers beyond the count with integrated inventory services that include store surveys, space management, store remodels and resets, RFID solutions and asset optimization.
