Kalundu Trading, established in 1976, specialises in the import, export and distribution of starter motors, alternators and associated spare parts. They are a key supplier to major distributors and wholesalers throughout the world.

Kalundu Trading is a long-standing client of KCS and approached KCS with a request for a hosted solution that could alleviate the risks and concerns associated with the maintenance, administration and monitoring of their on-premise ERP system. Due to the age of their hardware, the possibility of data-loss was becoming a risk which could result in system down time and loss of productivity, which would be costly to recover from.

KCS offered a hosted solution, K-Cloud, that drastically decreased the expenditure associated with non-hosted solutions, such as capital costs of hardware as well as payroll costs of IT staff members.

K-Cloud provides a very secure offering with the ability to actively monitor processes and back-ups which was an important requirement in Kalundu Trading’s decision-making process.

Patrick Schärer, Managing Director of Kalundu Trading said; “It was of great concern that our business was at risk due to our outdated server. As our business continues to grow, we need to ensure that we are able to securely store our data so that we can remain operational with no down time. K-Cloud offered us a unique solution that ensures our business remains operational under all circumstances”.

Dealing with KCS was a pleasure. Their hands-on approach, their knowledge and critical understanding of how to migrate data into the cloud, ensured ease of transitioning. I would highly recommend working with them.
