Challenge

The automotive after-market in Kenya is fragmented, and competition comes from one-branch businesses. Amex Auto has decided to invest in K8, a sophisticated ERP system, developed by Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS). K8 software will deliver the scalable technology they need as they grow from a small, family run business to a multi-branch operation. They are also planning to open two distribution centers later this year. The investment they have made in their team will also, they believe, provide a foundation to support their planned growth.

Established in 1988, the privately held company is led by husband and wife team, Sajni Shah and Devesh Patel, who are Co-CEOs. Sajni joined the company in 2013 and saw the potential to take the business to the next level. She moved the company head quarters from the town of Kisumu to the capital Nairobi and expanded to 4 branches. Over the same period of time, the team grew from 4 to 56.

K8 software will deliver the scalable technology they need as they grow from a small, family run business to a multi-branch operation.

Gains and benefits

  • Real time access to actual data and performance
  • The ability to better monitor the performance of each branch, product line, and individual salespeople
  • The capability to drill down to gross margins achieved for each product

As Co-CEO, I want to support my team to learn as much as they can and build their skill set in their careers. Practical experience in a real business environment will equip a young Kenyan workforce to truly compete.

- Sajni Shah, Co-CEO, Amex Auto
