What we did: Implemented K8

A long-established family-run business with over 50 years’ experience, Nottage Joinery has a wealth of knowledge of the lumber industry, and the manufacturer of high class, custom joinery. Based in Bridgend, serving South Wales, the company’s customers include contractors, local authorities, trade and the general public.

Prior to implementing K8, Nottage Joinery reached the point where they had outgrown their systems. The controls, the level of integration and functionality required for a developing business were no longer adequate. Moreover, the software lacked the capabilities to handle the complexities of lumber purchasing, stock control, and customer sale transactions.

The company chose K8 for several reasons. In addition to being able to partner with a systems supplier who understood the lumber trade, K8 also had the proven reputation through its use in the lumber sector. As a functionally-rich, integrated solution, K8 would enable Nottage Joinery to develop, improve customer services and enhance business management processes in every area. Having considered other systems, the company judged K8 as being the system that met their requirements, would deliver the best results and be ‘on budget.'

Going live in 2009, although there were a few challenges getting used to the system, Nottage Joinery staff put the work in with K8 and the company has moved on. The system has supported sales growth, helped to identify best performing products and enabled the company to maintain a competitive and professional edge. Overall, Nottage Joinery believes that K8 has helped them to become a better company.
