Kerridge Commercial Systems helps builders' merchants secure a competitive position in the market place by providing real-world solutions to the regular challenges of running a profitable builders' business. Kerridge Commercial Systems flagship product, K8, is a fully integrated builders merchant software package which has a wide-ranging functionality, from stock order management and supplier management to point of sale processing and beyond.
K8 has become the market-leading merchant software solution thanks to the multiple ways in which it assists builders' merchants at each point of the daily running of the business and throughout every stage of the business cycle. Some of the challenges of running a successful builders merchant are universal, which is why K8 helps streamline warehouse and stock management, as well as facilitating improved order management and point of sale experience. K8 is a fully integrated software solution offering these multiple applications in one easy-to-use product.
Over and above helping with processes which are universal to all builders merchants, K8 is highly adaptable. This makes it just as useful for the challenges which face an established enterprise as it is for those facing a start-up business.
There’s no clearer way to witness the flexibility of this product than by reading the Builders Merchants testimonials in the Success Stories section of the Kerridge Commercial Systems website. They include examples of how K8 has helped improve the processes of builders materials suppliers which have been trading since 1790, and young operations experiencing their first expansion. There are case studies from family-run businesses employing a handful of people, as well as large-scale builders merchants with multiple sites. All of these case studies are united in their praise for K8. Typical comments include:
