Customised for your business

Every K8 user has the opportunity to have a unique ‘workplace’ which displays specific tools for particular roles and areas of responsibility. Managers or business owners may have different visibility to the customer facing staff. Customised views can be arranged to display any of the following features and more: key performance indicators, questions due for follow up, low margin sales alerts, overdue purchase orders and key reports. Business intelligence gives individuals or departments access to secure, centralised data at the precise level they need to perform their roles effectively.

Real-time order processing

Our sales order processing screen provides users with comprehensive ‘real-time’ information to complete tasks efficiently. K8 software also includes comprehensive inter-branch and stock visibility and transaction processing tools, as well as stock checking tools to assist with inventory control. Every transaction is processed in real time, no daybooks, a failsafe audit trail and the cashbook module automatically deals with banking and reconciliation processes.

Full customer relationship management functionality

Comprehensive CRM suite has the functionality to manage customer records, whether retailers, resellers, traders or consumers. Recording every piece of information and utilising it effectively opens up opportunities to review and improve service, deliver customers campaigns, offer incentives or simply keep in touch.
