Automotive aftermarket specialist Elta to install market-leading solution

17th May 2013: Kerridge Commercial Systems announces that Elta, the long established automotive bulb, wiper and EMS specialist, is investing in K8 - the market leading, integrated solution for the distributive trades.

The company’s decision was based on a number of key criteria and followed detailed evaluation of a number of alternative systems.

Ian Hallam, Elta managing director said, “Our current systems comprise several disparate software platforms which we have now outgrown. For us K8, with its integrated functionality, is a modern, well-proven system, with an excellent reputation. Across its range of capabilities, there is considerable potential to help us take the business forward, particularly in warehouse and customer relationship management areas. Choosing K8 was made easier because, given the company’s single product strategy, it was important to know that our investment would be focussed on the system’s development programme. We will therefore benefit from new introductions as K8 progresses.”

The contract for K8 will also include a comprehensive user training programme, installation consultancy and on-going system support. K8 will be configured for 19 system users, together with 8 users in the warehouse operation who will use hand-held devices to process inbound and outbound stock movements, without the need to use a fixed point PC terminal. The system is scheduled to go live at Elta in August.
