About Desi Building Supplies

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. 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; although this won’t happen straight away, we would eventually like to branch out into roofing and other areas.

Training for the easy-to-use software solution will be carried out by the KCS team remotely and on site over the coming weeks.

In many respects, we wish we’d put the system in place sooner because it will really help us keep on top of everything. There’s only a few of us working in the office at the moment, so we can’t wait to go live in a few weeks’ time.
