Customer: Goedkoop Bouwmaterialen

What we did: Implemented K8

Founded in 1932, as a small timber and hardware merchant based in the centre of Amsterdam, Goedkoop Bouwmaterialen now supplies timber, kitchens, plasterboard and tools. The company’s products are used in many building renovation projects in Amsterdam and customers also include numerous DIY businesses.

The family-owned, forward-thinking company installed its first computer system in 1985 – at the time trading systems for wholesalers were in their infancy. Much more recently, as a result of business growth, and the opening of an additional branch, a systems review was required. As members of Sakol, a purchasing association, Goedkoop Bouwmaterialen were recommended to take a look at K8 - one of only two systems that it had identified for its members. The result – an order was placed for K8 and installation followed.
