Founded in 1995, Burnt Oak Builders Merchants is a family-run business based in North London, with a traditional builder’s yard in Burnt Oak and two warehouses in Harrow. The company sells several thousand product lines ranging from timber, flooring, plumbing and electrical supplies to power tools, bricks and insulation.

Burnt Oak Builders Merchants were experiencing many of the issues associated with using manual systems. These included inadequate stock control, inconsistent pricing and pricing maintenance, disputes and errors, lack of management information and slow settlements from debtors. The company was introduced to K8-SBE – the system being used by two of their suppliers and went live in October 2008.
