Autoparts (South Wales) Limited upgrades to K8

“My field sales team can work with the key software modules on their iPads to check stock and raise orders for customers while they’re out on the road.”

Nick Edwards, Managing Director, Autoparts (South Wales) Limited

Autoparts (South Wales) Limited was started by ex-Lancaster bomber pilot, Harvey Edwards, in 1962. Harvey had the highly progressive idea of offering twice daily deliveries when other part suppliers were delivering two or three times a week.

Harvey’s peers didn’t think the business would bear the cost of such a revolutionary idea. However, the growth of the company since then, and its success today, as Harvey’s grandson Nick and his team prepare to upgrade to K8 software, are all testament to what a sound business idea it was.

Nick Edwards said that he decided to move to K8 because he was looking for greater functionality and flexibility than his existing system could provide. “Specifically we’re looking forward to better traceability of all processes within the system, particularly for our internal sales team. I also like how you can attach documents and drawings to sales orders that stay with them all through the system.”
