Voltex implements K8 system

The K8 project spanned the seven Voltex divisions and approximately 80 trading branches with 1,250 users now operating the system. Voltex selected K8 for its ability to financially integrate its business divisions and deliver a high level of customer service at each of the branches.

Eric Immermann of Voltex commented, “K8 enables transparent reporting and consolidation across our regions and is supporting our key corporate business decisions. The system has integrated our trading branches to enable efficient inventories to meet customer demands. K8’s ease of use has meant our users have adopted the system quickly, resulting in minimum disruption to us and more importantly our customers. We face some unique infrastructure challenges in South Africa and K8 is perfectly suited to that situation by having only low bandwidth demands between branches reducing the demands on our network.”

Des Nangle, MD KCS South Africa said, “I congratulate the Voltex team on the success of this project and much is owed to the partnership approach adopted by the two companies. The project teams worked closely together to ensure that K8 was configured to meet Voltex requirements and fully prepared for the branch roll-out.”

The success of the project was put into context when Voltex won the prize as the Bidvest Group’s company with the most improved year-on-year audit; using K8 for financial management and whilst completing the branch roll-out. “The K8 project has been a huge success for Voltex, delivered on time and on budget. It lays the foundation for a long partnership with Kerridge Commercial Systems,” said Eric Immermann.
