CARY, NC – August 14, 2018- Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) is pleased to announce that Parr Lumber Company has chosen K8 as their next generation ERP solution.  Parr Lumber Company will deploy K8 to help manage their mission critical, day-to-day business processes. The Parr Lumber Company team found K8’s depth of functionality exceeded expectations to support future growth as they look ahead to accelerate their strategic growth plans.

The Parr Lumber Company team did not take on the task of selecting a new ERP system lightly. Finding an ERP solution that satisfied their current and future needs was only part of the equation; they also wanted to work with a company that shared their values and culture. “Through an extensive evaluation process, Parr Lumber Company has selected K8 software, supplied from KCS, as our next generation ERP solution,” stated Doug Wirges, CEO. “We are very confident in our choice and excited to have found an ERP software system which will help us to integrate all of our diverse business components into one operating system.
