Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) is pleased to announce that Elta Automotive have decided to migrate their K8 system to a KCS hosted service.
Elta is a major component distributor based in the West Midlands and holds the UK licence for the renowned Lucas Electrical brand. Established in 1993, Elta supplies motor factors and trade customers across the globe, operating from its large, central warehouse in Coleshill. The company’s stockholding includes in excess of 5.5 million components and a product range of over 15,000 lines.
KCS hosted service offers customers 99.5% availability in centralised data centres, with KCS performing all system administration and management including data backup and restore.
Leading the project management from Elta, Stuart Poole commented “We were keen to move to a hosted solution to improve our disaster recovery capability. It also means that we don’t need to worry about maintaining the hardware, leaving us to focus on more strategic IT initiatives.”
Stuart also commented on the affordability of the solution “Once we factored in all of the direct and indirect costs of maintaining a server, we realised that there wasn’t a major increase, yet we would be getting much better service and level of business continuity.”
KCS provides a full-range of hosted and managed services, from hosting a customer’s own hardware, all the way through to providing a full SaaS offering. Many of KCS’s customers are moving to the cloud and the majority of new customers are now opting for SaaS where their K8 software and all hardware can be paid for monthly by the number of users.
