Transformation through management software 30 August 2022

JTD Building Supplies, an independent builders’ merchant, has reportedly quadrupled in size through the use of the K8 ERP solution the company had previously implemented.  

The K8 business management tool from Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) has aided massively in JTD’s business development. With a comprehensive range of modules, K8 helped the merchant business source effectively, stock efficiently, sell profitably, and service competitively.

JTD, established in 2011, supplies building materials and supplies to construction firms, trade customers and retail customers. The company grew from values of sustainability and customer service. Thus was the ideal when managing director, Tony Sharkey, was invited to attend a business management strategy course run by Goldman Sachs, with the goal of finding the right ERP software.  

The transformation since then has been remarkable.
