In House at the Panelling Centre operates a one-stop shop, same day service for flat-pack and pre-assembled kitchens from its 8 branch and multiple warehouse operation. Established in 1974, the company offers an extensive range of high quality, affordable products and a full CAD-based design service.

In 2007, In House at the Panelling Centre reviewed its IT strategy and recognised that it needed to invest in a new system which would improve customer service, provide greater financial control, tighten stock control and manage profitability more effectively. A key requirement was to choose a system that would integrate with its CAD system enabling all the components from a completed design to be passed directly to the trading system and produce a professional quotation for the customer. The company installed a 100 user K8 system in 2008 with CAD integration.
