Nicholls and Clarke chooses K8

Nicholls & Clarke Group have placed an order with Kerridge Commercial Systems for a 200 user K8 system to replace its legacy ERP systems. Through recent growth and business development the company, which employs over 500 members of staff, needed a system which would provide high performance transaction processing. The decision to choose K8 came from a broad evaluation of candidate systems which was then shortlisted for detailed assessments of the three platforms which most closely matched business requirements. Ultimately, the principle reasons for choosing K8 were its fast point of sale capabilities and immense versatility in all areas of the system

David Forbes, CEO of the Nicholls & Clarke Group of Companies commented, “As a company developing and investing in production technology, new product developments and IT systems, we needed a new system that would provide us with a platform for the future. We were impressed with K8’s capability across the board and in particular transaction processing where speed, efficiency and flexibility are essential requirements. This investment involves much more than a new computer system. In making our selection, it was critically important that we would gain an IT partner who we could work with and develop a long and successful relationship. Stability, continuity and the assurance of a product roadmap for the years ahead are vital. With the company’s track record, I believe that Kerridge Commercial Systems will be an excellent partner for us.”

In addition to the fully integrated K8 trading and financial suites, Nicholls & Clarke have specified the latest CRM and Business Intelligence applications as part of the project

Duncan Smillie, Sales & Marketing Director, Kerridge Commercial Systems said, “We are delighted that Nicholls & Clarke have chosen K8. It has been a pleasure to work with their team during the pre-contract stages and in that time we have learned a great deal about their business and understand how they want to use K8. We welcome Nicholls & Clarke as a customer and look forward to supporting them during the implementation and beyond.”
