K8 Trader ‘opens up options’ for start-up Oswestry Kitchens & Bathrooms

Oswestry Kitchens & Bathrooms has selected K8 Trader to position the company for success as it prepares to open in the coming weeks. The start-up favoured the feature-rich ERP software from Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) over other solutions specifically designed for its industry due to the wide range of functionality it offered.

Business Owner Ben Jones revealed that K8 Trader stood out from the beginning. “Quite simply, the other software packages we looked at didn’t go as far as KCS does with regards to the reporting, profit and loss and accounting. This was a big thing for me when choosing a software solution.”

Other functionality within the ERP will make it easier to manage the kitchen and bathroom showroom on a day-to-day basis

“Instant invoicing is invaluable to us,” Ben emphasised. “It can be a long process from a customer enquiring about a product to placing an order. K8 Trader will allow us to create a sales order - and consequently a purchase order - directly from a quotation, followed by a delivery ticket and invoice. It’s an end-to-end solution as far as I’m concerned.”

As a brand new business, the CRM features of K8 Trader will also be beneficial for Oswestry Kitchens & Bathrooms in the early days of trading.

“I have years of experience in the industry and have built up a huge client base during this time. Being able to use K8 Trader for CRM is huge for me, as is being able to offer our customers a credit facility. With our new software, I will be able to access all this through a single icon on my desktop.

“K8 Trader will certainly be cost effective for us from an accounting perspective because it will automatically do a lot of the work an accountant would usually be responsible for.

The scalability of the software solution was especially important for Oswestry Kitchens & Bathrooms. Ben anticipates it will deliver benefits from day one, but the company’s future growth ambitions will also be supported by the ERP.

We ultimately wanted software that we wouldn’t hit a brick wall with in a year’s time. There’s all sorts of add-on modules and features we can introduce to K8 Trader when we need them - electronic signature pads being one of them.

“It’s early days but I am really looking forward to seeing what K8 Trader can do. It will open up lots of options for us,” Ben concluded.
