Overnight, across the UK, suppliers provide our retail partners with Expected Goods In files. This data feeds directly to each store’s rascal app.
The app allows all colleagues to take responsibility for goods-in scanning. It also significantly improves the accuracy of the process compared to paper-based systems and enables instant on-screen comparison to the Expected Goods In file.
If any discrepancies are discovered, rascal takes care of notifying the suppliers, as well as reporting them to head office. No time is lost in-store by colleagues calling through to the supplier with their discrepancies.
