The project was to design and develop a new distribution override system.
The requirements included providing a system infrastructure for distribution savings of £1million per annum and ways to reduce distribution costs across all channels.
The new solution needed to integrate with existing order management and warehouse systems and provide a reporting suite to measure cost savings achieved.
The result was a huge success.
“KFA has helped to provide solutions to our distribution costs. We have seen many thousands of pounds saved this year by ensuring orders were on the most cost-effective and appropriate service. They have built and provided a framework for next years budget challenge of £1m saved from our total forward logistics costs”

The project requirements were to develop a new eCommerce solution with ERP integration.
KFA designed a Magento eCommerce solution with B2B and B2C capabilities including the integration of customer specific pricing, sales agent functionality and the ability to manage products and allow customers to purchase from catalogues.
The new eCommerce website is due to go live towards the end of 2018.
“We have been pleased with the extent to which KFA have worked closely with us to further develop the website as we explore with them the improved functionality available in the Magento product. You have shown that you are good at listening to our aspirations and developing solutions.”

KFA implemented a new logistics IT system which improved and accelerated stock management and traceability. This also allowed enhanced tracking of market demands and trends.
The KFA solution featured seamless integration with the existing accounting system, real-time trading dashboard, sales and purchase contract management and an efficient haulage management system.
“By taking the decision to have a bespoke solution developed by KFA Connect, we have got exactly what we wanted without having to compromise any of our requirements.”
Mitutoyo engaged the services of KFA Connect to develop and integrate a new eCommerce site into their existing ERP system.
One of the requirements was to allow individual customers to access live stock figures and account specific pricing 24/7 and also included the facility to allow order, customer and stock information to flow seamlessly between the new Magento eCommerce site and existing ERP solution.
This required the creation of an API between the eCommerce web solution and existing ERP solution.
The outcome was enhanced accuracy and speed of data flowing to and from ERP system, reduced processing costs and enhanced take-up of eCommerce site resulting in enhanced customer satisfaction and engagement.
“KFA Connect deliver a first class service with a minimum of fuss.”
