Fully integrated systems for builders' merchants deliver best results
Fully integrated systems have become the norm for many builders merchants, especially with applications such as CRM, warehouse and electronic trading coming on stream. Integrated functionality has also made it possible to manage complex branch, location and company structures more successfully when using the builders merchants software. In short with or without some sort of interface, stand-alone alternatives for accounts, stock control and marketing, do not address merchants needs particularly successfully. Bespoke applications have also become increasingly less appealing and practical. More and more merchants have appreciated the value of transactional data being recorded once at the point of entry, then flowing automatically through to the accounting functions and other system modules. No re-keying, the risk of errors much reduced and improved operational efficiency being the obvious benefits. MKM, the UK s largest independent builders merchant, needed a fully integrated and scalable system that would help the business develop. Implementing K8 in 2008, they found that one of the major benefits was that they could have all the requisite functionality without bespoke modifications.
