Desi Building Supplies anticipates better stock control with K8 Trader

New builders’ merchant chooses Kerridge Commercial Systems’ (KCS) business management solution to speed up stock checking and improve efficiencies.

Choosing software for a new business venture means weighing up the features that are most valuable - and for Desi Building Supplies, stock control functionality was an absolute must. The company was established in early 2020 shortly before lockdown took hold, and it soon became evident that automating stock management processes would make a real difference to the business.

Cliff Bennett, Branch Manager at Desi Building Supplies, had previously used solutions from KCS, and believed K8 Trader would be a good fit for the new venture.

“K8 Trader will give us the visibility we need to be able to gain a better overview of our business,” Cliff explained. “At the moment, we’re using a system that doesn’t have any stock management functionality, so we don’t know exactly what we’ve got in stock at any given time.”

The stock management module within K8 Trader enables users to gain full control over their assets, by managing and automating core processes throughout the business. Desi Building Supplies will be able to track costs and access sales history, and there is scope to use the software across additional locations in the future.

K8 Trader will allow us to expand. We are looking to open new premises further down the line... we would eventually like to branch out into roofing and other areas.
