Putting ERP software to the test
On Thursday 16th April, Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) were attending the annual NMBS exhibition at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
The biggest and best NMBS exhibition yet, the venue was buzzing and no more so than on the KCS stand where we were running "The Great K8 Order Challenge”. The task was simple – raise and complete a 4-line cash sale as quickly as you can on K8. The prize – a magnum of Moët & Chandon champagne for the fastest time on the day.
Competition was fierce from the start with various people setting fastest times, before Jamie Paradise topped the leader board with 29.6 seconds – the best in the morning. This was then eclipsed by Glen Selfe (Plumb-IT) with 25.9 seconds, a time that stayed at the top of the board until Phil Smith (Embrass Peerless) put in a best time yet. It looked like Phil was going to take the champagne until Steph Smith (Primaflow) managed to take the lead with an amazing 19.9 seconds – the first to crack under 5 seconds per line.
Not to be beaten (obviously a champagne fan) Phil returned and clocked an outstanding 17.6 seconds on his second attempt, a time that proved to be unbeatable! Well done Phil – the worthy winner of our first K8 Order Challenge.
Most of the competitors had never used K8 before and our winner, Phil Smith, was also a novice – testament to the ease of use and lightning speed of our Sales Order Processing software for trade businesses.
If you think you can do better, come along to our Customer Conference (LINK) where we will be running the competition again. Alternatively, send us a video-clip of you taking a 4 line order on K8 and we’ll award prizes for the quickest and funniest and will post a few on to our YouTube channel (email@example.com) . If you are doing your own order lines – only one can be scanned (too easy otherwise) so at least three items need to be found and keyed in.
We’ll look forward to seeing your video clips or seeing you in person at the next Great K8 Order Challenge!
