KCS Improves Performance and Gains Operational Benefits

Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) is an international software development and IT services business with 36 years of experience in serving distributive trades across many sectors. Distributive trades include wholesalers, distributors, merchants, and retailers.

KCS has its headquarters in the UK with offices in Ireland, the Netherlands and South Africa, supporting more than 700 customers with 50,000 users at more than 3,500 locations across Europe, Africa, Asia and Australasia.

KCS has achieved Oracle Exadata Optimized status through Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), demonstrating that the K8 enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution has been tested and tuned with Oracle Exadata Database Machine to deliver speed, scalability, and reliability to customers.

K8 is KCS’s single, fully-integrated business management solution. The system is flexible and robust enough to address complex business requirements while providing an easily accessible and navigable user interface. A comprehensive, functionally-rich ERP solution, K8 covers all key, operational areas including retail, ecommerce, supply chain management, financials and customer relationship management (CRM).

KCS has a solid understanding of how Oracle Engineered Systems can provide customers with business gains through outstanding technical performance. The company became an early adopter of Oracle Exadata Database Machine, resulting in a dramatic increase in K8 sales processing performance, demonstrating its suitability for providing greatly improved online transactional processing (OLTP) power for any customers handling large volumes of sales and business transactions.

With K8 running on Oracle Exadata Database Machine, KCS customers can expect to realize significant throughput performance gains. Increased processing capabilities significantly accelerate sales-per-second throughput and reporting performance, reducing wait times across large, multi-user populations. K8 on Exadata delivers a 16x increase in sales per second, compared to previous hardware benchmarks.
