K8 is the preferred ERP system for Continental Cables

Continental Cables

Mr Alfie Altenburger owner of Continental Cables decided to look at alternative ERP systems as their Legacy system could not support the growth of the business. Some of the important requirements were accurate forecasting, cable drum batch control, buyout management and Business Intelligence reporting. Copper cable has very high value, therefore margin control plays a big role in the business.

The K8 project team consisted of two very dedicated resources from Continental Cables, Jo-Anne Botha (Sales Manager) and Bev Main (Financial Manager). They made sure that all conversion data was ready, and on-time for the Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) consultants, and this meant that everyone could do thorough testing and training before the go-live date.

Within two and a half months Continental Cables are already reaping the benefits of K8. Mr. Altenburger said he was impressed with the dedication and industry knowledge of the KCS project team, and how easy it was for the sales team to start using the new system. Continental Cables are looking forward to using more K8 modules, in addition they are planning to open many new branches of which Bloemfontein in the Free State Province will be the first.

Tiaan Grobbelaar, Sales Manager at KCS said “We are pleased to have another customer from the wholesale cable and wire industry on board. We are looking forward to a very long and mutually beneficial relationship with Continental Cables, they can be assured that KCS and our K8 ERP will support their operations now and far into the future.”
