Gains and benefits

Spec-Cast Wear Parts has nearly tripled in size since 2015, therefore they required a system that could better manage their operations and financials. K8 provides the support for further growth of the business with a system that will offer the controls and efficiencies required.

Spec-Cast Wear Parts (Pty) Ltd was founded in 1986, specialising in the manufacture and supply of patterns and casting to the railway industry with replacement parts for coaches, wagons and locomotives. In 2005, Spec-Cast launched a new division - Spec-Cast Wear Parts (Pty) Ltd, supplying replacement wear parts for the construction, mining and agriculture sectors.

Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) first established a strategic long-term relationship with Spec-Cast Wear Parts in 2015. Spec-Cast Wear Parts realised the need for a comprehensive, fully integrated ERP system after experiencing exponential growth in the business. K8 will be replacing their legacy system, which Spec-Cast felt lacked efficient stock management functionality causing unnecessary duplication of work.

Tiaan Grobbelaar, Sales Director at KCS said "We look forward to working with Spec-Cast Wear Parts and offering them the same value and expansional growth which we continue to offer our current customers. With more than 40 years in the industry, we have no doubt that Spec-Cast Wear Parts and KCS will continue to grow together".
