Builders Supplies (West Coast) Ltd, are a successful, independent, heavyside builders’ merchant, with depots in Fleetwood, Cleveleys, Preston and Morecambe with plumbing and heating products available in Fleetwood. The company prides itself on excellent customer service levels and high stock availability.

Builders Supplies (West Coast) realized the significance of investing in a new computer system; such a project was also going to be something of a culture change for the company. The requirements were for a supplier who understood the industry, a system that would be fully maintained and progressed with an upgrade path and a total ‘one-stop’ services solution. Having evaluated several contenders, a short list was identified and detailed reviews were conducted. Ultimately, only Kerridge Commercial Systems met the criteria and an order was placed for K8. Among the deciding factors were the company’s excellent customer relationships.
