About Manny’s Timber and Hardware

Established in 1987, Manny’s Timber and Hardware’s initial focus was in the manufacturing of timber roof trusses. Today, they have grown into a major hardware and building materials supplier.

Using K8 adds real value to the business

Manny’s Timber and Hardware has been with Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) for nearly 10 years. KCS South Africa implemented K8 ERP in September of 2006, the implementation decision being driven by the need to streamline manual processing together with the vast number of reports that can be exported or displayed reflecting real-time information.

Over the years Manny’s has found that K8 supported their growth and benefited them by providing them with improved reporting capabilities, management controls, stock management, and flexible sales & delivery methods.

Recently K8 completed the integration with their existing truss manufacturing software, enabling them to avoid recapturing sales orders on K8. Once the requirements and quantities are confirmed in the truss manufacturing software, all the information can be imported into K8 for further optimisation and invoicing.

We have a great relationship with Kerridge Commercial Systems, there is so much flexibility within the K8 system and we are always improving our system functionality with the KCS SA Team. We find the diversity of the sales & delivery methods most useful.

Tiaan Grobbelaar, KCS Sales Manager commented: “As we celebrate almost 10 years with Manny’s, we are appreciative of their support for us over the years. The K8 software will keep evolving, providing an even better timber and hardware solution to our customers. We look forward to the next 10 years of a mutually beneficial relationship with Mannys and K8 supporting their business strategies.”
