Accurate & Reliable Stocktaking for Pharmacies & Businesses

We’re specialists in providing accurate and effective stocktocking services for pharmacies and businesses across Northern Ireland.

Our Experience

We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to achieve the right solution for our clients.

If you’re looking to work with an independent stocktaker, you’ll want to know that they understand your sector and needs, they deliver great customer service and the results you’re given are accurate and delivered on time.

That’s exactly what we do at James & Co, and we’ve been doing it for more than 50 years. We understand that no two businesses or pharmacies are the same, which is why our approach is always based on our extensive experience in finding you the right solution and tailoring to your needs.

When you work with us, you’ll be working with our local Belfast Team, using our reliable and efficient systems and procedures that we have developed over many years and many thousands of stocktakes. If you’re looking for stocktaking services outside Northern Ireland, we also work across the whole of the Republic of Ireland too and our business partners offer services in England, Scotland, Wales and Germany. 

We've got more than 50 years of proven experience

Having been set up in the 1970’s by a successful pharmacist who’d been unhappy with the level of accuracy he’d received from stocktakes over the years, we’ve delivered thousands of stocktakes across Northern Ireland and are proven in delivering accurate, efficient and reliable results.

Our Services

Our approach to your stocktakes can be tailored and varied to suit your needs.

We understand that no two businesses are the same. That’s why we use our experiecne to ensure the service we provide will always be built around your circumstances and the needs that arise from them. That’s how we effectively take the stress out of stocktaking, meaning you can concentrate on what really matters – running your business with facts and figures that help you eliminate stock loss and make informed decisions.

Most of the stocktakes we do consist of us providing our people, systems and equipment and we count your stock completely independently of your team.

For some larger stocktakes or for some businesses with very specific requirements our Hybrid Stocktake model can be used.  This involves your staff counting your stock but using our equipment and systems.  We provide a team to manage the IT side of things and run the stocktake.

For wholesale and distribution businesses we have an excellent system for counting your stock by item and bin-location and also producing variance reports, both by bin and by item.  Our Bin-Location Stocktakes can be carried out as Full or Hybrid Stocktakes.
