EDP is rebranded to Kerridge Commercial Systems 24 April 2019

Kerridge Commercial Systems, a provider of integrated software solutions for manufacturing, wholesale and distribution, has announced Electronic Data Processing Limited (EDP) has been rebranded as Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS).

Over four decades of steady growth and diversification, KCS has acquired a number of companies each trading with a different name. With that in mind and after much research and consideration, the company decided to reduce the complexity of the brand by incorporating each of the new companies within the KCS name.

“We have grown from a business with 60 people to an organisation with more than 850 and are now part of a strong global brand. The EDP team have worked within very similar markets to our new KCS colleagues for many years now. It is a great opportunity to combine our industry knowledge and expertise to continue to service our customers, old and new, with innovative, market leading solutions with a strong unified company name,” commented Pete Clegg, sales account manager at KCS.

UK-based KCS provides software to 15,000 customers worldwide, offering end to end ERP solutions including supply chain management, financial management, CRM, warehouse management, Business Intelligence, ePOS, and more – specifically for the wholesale, distribution, and manufacturing markets. The rebrand supports the company’s strategy of continued growth and follows five acquisitions during the last 15 months in the UK and the Netherlands.

“We are endeavouring to ensure the rebrand has a minimal effect on our customers so it is very much business as usual. As previously confirmed we will continue to support the EDP products and customers with the same level of excellence and professionalism all of our customers have come to expect as the company transitions to the KCS brand. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the loyal EDP customers for their continued support during this exciting development in the company’s long history,” added Ian Bendelow, CEO of KCS.
