Major supplier builds for the future with K8
23th April 2014: Kerridge Commercial Systems announces that Kent-based Gill Aggregates has placed an order for K8, the market-leading integrated solution for the distributive trades. Gill Aggregates required a new system that would enable them to improve business efficiencies, develop customer service capabilities and support future growth.
Director, Harvey Sanger, said, “Our business has grown substantially in recent years. To all intents our existing systems have reached their end of life and no longer met our more demanding requirements. Principally, K8 will provide us with first class sales, purchasing, stock control and financial tools and streamline our processes. Across the board, the system will enable us to reduce the amount of paperwork that our team have to contend with. Product and transaction data will be much more visible which will enable our staff to speed up sales operations.”
Gill Aggregates decision to implement the system followed a thorough review of alternative solutions and ultimately, the choice was between K8 and another leading system The company chose K8 for its proven, wide-ranging capability and well-established reputation in the builders’ merchant sector. “Given that the system is used by many builders’ merchants across the South East, gave us that extra degree of reassurance that K8 would serve us well,” said Harvey.
Kerridge Commercial Systems CEO, Ian Bendelow, said, “We are delighted that Gill Aggregates has chosen K8. Our task now is to guide the company through the pre-installation stages and prepare for the go live later this year. We will do all we can to ensure their K8 system is ready to help them achieve maximum value from their investment.”
