New ERP system delivers increased profitability for John Davey

John Davey

“In terms of a return on our investment, what we pay for K8 is offset by our increased profitability through being able to keep a better track on our margins, our increased turnover and the time the system saves us. We all find it quick and easy to use – for example our monthly invoicing now takes one day instead of seven!”

Rhys Davey, General Manager, John Davey

At the end of 2013, John Davey, a third generation family owned Welsh builders’ merchant, upgraded from a manual invoicing system to ERP software from Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS).

A year later, General Manager, Rhys Davey, saw that margin and turnover had both increased significantly. He remembered, “Once we had a full year of history within our K8 solution we could see the scope of how much the software had helped us. Our turnover had risen from £1.1m to £1.5m and we were showing an increase of 2% in our gross margin. Using a manual system I think it had been easy to make mistakes in calculations plus we were always missing opportunities to increase our margin. I think the improvements were largely down to being able to work more accurately.”
