Perform stocktakes in real time with the Android Toniq Mobile app and device. These stocktakes will show a variety of information about the medicine or product scanned/entered and allow you to update the stock count.

Once the stock count has been updated, this information is live for every Toniq computer on the network.


Stocktaking works for both Dispensary and Retail, and there is an initial staff set up required before a user has access to use the device for stocktaking. Please see article Staff Configuration and Security for more information on staff set up.

Multiple stock points
