Physical Inventory

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Physical inventory is a process where a business physically counts its entire inventory. A physical inventory may be mandated by financial accounting rules or the tax regulations to place an accurate value on the inventory, or the business may need to count inventory so component parts or raw materials can be restocked. Businesses may use several different tactics to minimize the disruption caused by physical inventory.

Mystery Shopping

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mystery shopping is a tool used by market research companies to measure quality of retail service. These companies send mystery shoppers to ‘act' as shoppers in return for some combination of cash, store credit, purchase discounts, or reimbursement for the goods or services purchased. Instructions to mystery shoppers can include a script of behavior, questions to ask, complaints to give, purchases to make, and measures to record, such as time it takes to receive attention from an employee or receive a service, or the responses given to questions.
