Gains and benefits

West Sussex based Aerco, a distributor of safety critical electrical components for the rail and military aerospace markets, has upgraded to K8, an ERP solution developed by Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS). For the past 15 years the company has been using the KCS One Office solution.

Harry Laughton, General Manager at Aerco, said, “One Office has worked well for us in the past but, as the company has grown, it has been unable to keep up. We were holding the system together through some bespoke programming by members of our team but this meant we needed to keep going in and out of different programmes. It was clearly time to upgrade and, by migrating to K8, we will have everything in one place and our business processes can become more streamlined.”

There will be 55 K8 users within the Aerco team. Between them, they will use all the integrated functionality of the K8 business platform, including financial accounting, trading, logistics and management. K8’s Web Builder will also provide Aerco with a fully integrated web platform where customers can browse product information and availability before placing their orders. KCS offers customers a variety of ways to access their K8 software. Aerco’s K8 will be deployed on an on-premise server.

Harry said, “We chose K8 because we were always happy with One Office, the price was right - and it was good to stick with you guys!”
