K8 invaluable for new plumbing merchant - Pimlico

Pimlico Plumbing & Heating Merchants making full use of IT

5th February 2015: London-based, Pimlico Plumbing & Heating Merchants (Pimlico), which has only been trading since October 1st, is reporting that their K8 system is proving to be an invaluable tool for their growing business. Going live with K8 on the same day the company opened its doors, Pimlico has had full control of purchasing, stock, sales processing and finances from the start. Using K8, the company has been able to concentrate on delivering a high quality service to its customers

Samm Mullins, director said, “Although we considered other suppliers, K8 was recommended to us and in fact, one of our staff had previously used the system which made it an easy decision. The challenge for Kerridge CS and our new team was that all system preparations and set-up had to be completed in record time. There was a lot of pressure with so much going on getting the business ready – everything had to move quickly. I was very impressed by the hard work and flexibility of the Kerridge CS team, having a system live within 4 weeks from start to finish and ready for the shop opening was quite an achievement.”

Pimlico serves two customer channels; providing purchasing, stock and supply services for its own, Pimlico Plumbers operation and also supplying independent plumbers and heating engineers across London. Having considerable trade experience and expertise already in place, the new company is using K8 to help maintain the correct breadth and depth of stock to suit customer demands.  “Although a little daunting to begin with – we are plumbers not computer experts - we soon became comfortable with K8; it’s a very capable, easy-to-use and forgiving system.  In this business, our customers don’t have time to spare and time is money. They know exactly what they want and with K8, we can serve them quickly over the counter or with a van delivery. Equally, the system makes it very easy to monitor our profitability and our cash position, and if we do spot something that doesn’t look right, K8 gives us the answer with minimum of effort.”

Ian Bendelow, Kerridge Commercial Systems CEO said, “We were tasked to meet a very demanding timeframe for Pimlico, but with excellent team work by everyone involved, the system went live on schedule. It’s great that the company’s K8 system is performing well, delivering value and benefits that are so important, especially for a new enterprise. We wish Samm and his team every success.”
