K8 is the flagship product from Kerridge Commercial Systems and has been primarily designed with ‘industrial distribution’ environments in mind. 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 ideal warehouse and stock management software, distributor software, and point of sale software for any business which 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. Samuel Kirk (Builders Merchants) Ltd find K8 to be “a fully-integrated solution with all the reliability and detailed control required” to maintain a competitive edge.
The scalability of the K8 systems means it is multi-company, multi-branch, multi-currency and multi-language. Timber merchants Houthandel Goedkoop found this scalability, as well as the enhanced functionality, to be a key factor when choosing K8 as their timber merchant software of choice: “The foremost reason to move to K8 was the ability to easily link purchase and sales orders between two branches.” Ease of use was another draw: “K8 is extremely user-friendly; information is clearly presented and is easily traceable.”
