K8 has particular value as builders merchant software, just as it is the preferred business management system for plumbers and timber merchants.

K8 is a fully integrated software package, scalable to suit all sizes of companies. Its comprehensive functionality means it is the ideal warehouse and stock management software, distributor software, and point-of-sale software for any business that utilises industrial-level distribution.

However, since its inception, K8 has become predominantly known as plumbers merchant software, builders merchant software, and timber merchant software, helping these specific industries cope with the everyday logistical challenges they face and ensuring efficiency and profitability are maximised.

According to testimonials from some of Kerridge Commercial Systems' clients, 'it's a constant battle for builders' merchants to remain competitive', an opinion no doubt shared by many plumbers and timber merchants. However, KCS customers routinely find that K8 is a fully-integrated solution that provides all the reliability and precise control needed to stay competitive.

The scalability of the K8 systems means it can handle the needs of a multi-company, multi-branch, multi-currency and multi-language operation. Just as key, however, is how the system can adapt and change to the needs of its core industries.

'What really stood out to us about K8 was the scope for tailoring the system to suit our specific business needs,' says Luke Brown, Retail Manager at timber merchants, Terry Howell. 'Plus, having individuals on our project who understood the industry was a huge help in the build stages.'

This sentiment is echoed further by Heidi Teague, Operations Manager at JTD Building Supplies. 'K8 is an ERP system that works intuitively with builders' merchants,' she explains from their headquarters. 'Its foundation lets us build a system to suit our needs. And that means we get an ERP solution that promotes growth, sustains our business, and helps us generate more profit than before.'
