Cheese Cellar invests in K8

Kerridge Commercial Systems announces that H&B Foods Limited (t/a Cheese Cellar) have placed an order to implement K8, the class-leading fully integrated system for the distributive trades.

As an existing customer, Cheese Cellar currently uses Kerridge Commercial Systems’ OneOffice. Now with an annual turnover in excess of £70m, the company has grown substantially since the system was installed, including the integration of its other businesses into a single organisation.

The main drivers for a new system included a requirement to improve the efficiency of their warehouse and logistics operations. And in addition to moving from their existing platform, K8 will also replace a number of bespoke, in-house developed sub-systems, resulting in greater process consistency across the business.

Financial controller, Stella Coudjoe, said, “OneOffice has been a very good solution for the company during a time of change and expansion. We need an IT platform to take us to the next stage and prepare for the future, and hence it was time to consider the options. Fundamentally, as well as a need to improve operational efficiency, we require more sophisticated CRM and business intelligence capabilities. Although we knew that Kerridge Commercial Systems had a proven solution with an excellent reputation, we carried out detailed assessments of several alternative systems before choosing K8 for its superiority. We are pleased to continue our relationship with a company that we know well.”
