K Two Sales team delighted with SAP Business One

Who are K Two Sales

 

K Two Sales is a growing agricultural business based in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire.  This family-run business, established in the 1980’s, manufacturers of high-quality farm machinery.  The range includes rear discharge muck spreaders; tipping and compacting flatbed trailers as well as grassland aerators.

 

K Two Sales were looking for an ERP system that would further enhance business growth and make their lives a great deal easier day to day!

 

The business pains

 

The main issue for K Two is the repetitive manual entering of prospect and customer details. Some manual processes include having to enter the same details four times in different systems including a bill of materials and taking stocks from stores.

Consequently, manual entering is impacting on their time.  This is a real problem and K Two need to deliver more time efficiency into the business, freeing them up to deliver other areas of work.  There cuurently is so much repetitive processing that a lack of time to focus on other areas of the business is starting to really hurt their day to day operations.  Days are getting longer and longer, therefore they realized that a solution had to be found.

 

Additional problems are the production and sales systems don’t talk to each other and they are entering endless amounts of information into Excel spreadsheets.

 

Completing this mountain of paperwork and the increase in orders means they have outgrown their current systems and they need to streamline their operations.

 

Using SAP Business One through B1 Configurator means that everything is tied together for K Two Sales.  B1 Systems completed a full and comprehensive demo of both SAP Business One and B1 Configurator.

 

After seeing the demos Paul Kelloway, Sales Director at K Two Sales said they wanted the B1 Configurator to build the machines in the background (which is their works orders).  Using SAP Business One through B1 Configurator they can have machines built in the background as you are completing the quote.

Paul said, “You can physically see the machine specification being built with a diagram of the muck spreader.”

What SAP Business One has done for them

Paul said – “Time-saving 100%!!  It will save hours and I could even have time off occasionally!” 

Entering information once will stop the repetitive, time-sapping processes.

 

Also, anybody in the company can build a machine.  The beauty of B1 Configurator is it takes you through the process of building a machine.  Paul said that if he employed a new salesperson tomorrow it would take months to learn the sales and build process, but, with SAP Business One and B1 Sales Configurator you know how to do this straight away as it does it for you.

 

Additionally, Paul said the system will upsell their product as it builds it.  You have all the options and optional extras laid out in front of you, so you don’t have to remember everything and you can see mandatory requirements for a particular product.

Paul added “All the costs are there too and you would know if a machine needs a flashing beacon or not! A new salesperson may forget the £200 optional extra but with B1 Configurator you see these choices clearly.”

K Two Sales have started their journey with SAP Business One and B1 Configurator and the future is looking bright, their systems will become much more simplified, intuitive and easy to use.
