Milwaukee Builders Supply, Inc. selects K8 to support future growth

CARY, NC – June 2016 – Dancik International, provider of integrated software solutions focused on servicing the building materials, lumber, floor coverings, home décor, electrical and plumbing distribution, wholesale and retail markets, announced today that Milwaukee Builders Supply, Inc. has selected K8 to support their substantial wholesale building materials distribution business. K8 is a fully-integrated Business Management solution for LBM distributors, wholesalers, suppliers and retailers.

Milwaukee Builders Supply was founded in 2004 and quickly grew to be one of the largest wholesale building materials distributors in southeastern Wisconsin. They have experienced many of the issues associated with using a manual system; inadequate stock control, inability to meet accounting requirements, identifying sales opportunities and general business concerns. Success and growth have brought about a need for an integrated solution to support streamlined processes and further expansion.

Milwaukee Builders Supply was introduced to Dancik International at the North American K8 product launch at the International Builders Show (IBS) held in Las Vegas, January 2016. “I was impressed with K8 from the first demo at IBS and continue to be impressed by the robust nature of the system, and the knowledge and expertise of the Dancik team. We evaluated K8 against multiple competitive products in the US market, and K8 stood out above the rest as the clear choice for us. It was obvious to me that K8 was the software we must deploy,” stated John Lambie, President, Milwaukee Builders Supply, Inc.

K8 was able to fulfill all the company’s business requirements. K8’s integrated modules include in-store sales, online sales, price and margin control, promotion management, financials, inventory management, business intelligence (BI) and customer relationship management (CRM), all provided in a fully hosted solution by Dancik International.

"Alan Cross, KCS Executive Vice President North America, stated, "It's a testament to the strength and depth of the software that enabled the MBS team to select K8 ahead of well-established North American ERP providers, and we are delighted they were able to make that decision. The Dancik team now look forward to achieving a successful implementation."
