K8 is the prefered ERP system for Kaizen Motor Spares Distribution

Kerridge Commercial Systems is pleased to announce that Kaizen MSD has decided to partner with KCS to rollout K8 throughout all its branches in South Africa.

Kaizen Motor Spares Distributors, established in 2007, have grown into one of the largest automotive aftermarket distributors in South Africa with branches in Johannesburg, Durban, Nelspruit, Cape Town and Polokwane.

Kaizen MSD realised the need for a comprehensive, fully integrated system, Kerridge Commercial Systems. K8 will be replacing its legacy system.

Kaizen MSD felt they had outgrown the system as it lacked multi-branch stock management, financial controls, margin management and support in general. Furthermore, their legacy system did not cater for product descriptions, nor did it have a product file per branch.

Gonnie Nadasen, General Manager, said: "The K8 roadmap presented to us, by KCS, cemented our decision. We realised that an ERP change in our business is not a small one, and that our preferred ERP supplier must still be around in the next 20 years."

Kaizen MSD will find immediate value in the alternatives associated with K8 once it is implemented. Such benefits include but are not limited to; back to back processes for buy-outs and strong financials for a multi-branch business as well as the centralised controls needed.

KMSD will further benefit with K8 and have access to:

* Real time access to actual data and performance;
* The ability to better monitor the performance of each branch, product line and individual salespeople;
* The capability to drill down to gross margins achieved for each product
* Accurate forecasting;
* Buy-out Management;
* BI Reporting;
* Margin control; and
* Batch control.


* Real time access to actual data and performance;
* The ability to better monitor the performance of each branch; and
* Improved stock control across branches.

Tiaan Grobbelaar, Sales Director at KCS, said "We are pleased to have another customer on-board in the aftermarket automotive spare parts Industry.

Implementing K8 will support the growth of the business with a strong, robust and functionally rich ERP system that offers the necessary controls and efficiencies required".
