We're here to provide you with the best software solution
Your business performance depends on product quality, price, differentiation, and availability. Therefore, sourcing the right product at the best price is vital to attaining improved sales, higher profit margins, and excellent service across your supply chain.
Maintaining optimal stock levels can reduce handling costs and ensure economical transportation. However, such efficiency is only possible with software that helps you manage your inventory with clear visibility of supply and demand levels.
Sometimes, there's no need to create or add new products. Instead, businesses can sell more products to customers by opening more routes to market. And by selling through multiple at once, you can take advantage of new and massive business opportunities.
Competition for the same customers is tough, so you must differentiate, and that can't always be through price. To stand out, you need quality products at keen prices and outstanding customer support. All of that and more is possible with our ERP systems.
We like working with our customers, as they do with us.
KCS provides specialised software, services, and support to deliver fully integrated business management software solutions to clients, including wholesalers, distributors, suppliers, and retailers from small to large enterprises.
Crucially, K8's foundation lets us build a system to suit our needs. And that means we get an ERP solution that promotes growth, sustains our business and helps us generate more profit than before.

When planning a new site, the call to KCS is the first one we make. We want to know what internet connectivity will be like, plus the estimated timescale for getting the system live. Because, in reality, Autopart Online is critical to our business.

Our desire has always been to create the UK's premier plant hire company. We couldn't have achieved that without the suppliers, such as inspHire, to help us create what we've created now. So, thank you to inspHire!
