Sakol, the Dutch merchant buying group moves forward with K8

80+ users committed to the latest Oracle-based system

11th April 2013: Kerridge Commercial Systems announces that three leading builders’ merchants, who operate within the 20 member Netherlands-based Sakol buying group, have signed to upgrade their existing independently managed K8 systems to the latest Oracle-based K8.09 release. The systems are scheduled to go live by the end of 2013 and as a business model, represent an important landmark for Kerridge Commercial Systems’ expansion in European and international markets.

Brentjens bouwproducten, Goedkoop bouwmaterialen and Van Houwelingen Hout chose to take K8.09 – a standardised configuration, in order to take full advantage of the additional features available.

In particular, the new Data Exchange will facilitate their requirement for a maintainable master product file accessible to all members. K8’s new General Ledger will provide a host of additional accounting features as well as the very latest real time trading position for the management teams at Sakol. Additionally, the K8 Works Orders suite will also provide the buying group’s members with a much improved capability to support manufacturing activities. Sakol’s approach, which involves each company maintaining their own server resource, will be used as a template to present to other group members when they are reviewing their systems.
