Kerridge Commercial Systems has announced that Electronic Data Processing Limited (EDP) has been rebranded as Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS).
KCS has acquired a number of companies each trading with a different name. With that in mind and after much research and consideration, KCS has decided to reduce the complexity of the brand by incorporating each of the new companies within the KCS name, now incorporating and renaming EDP.
Pete Clegg, Sales Account Manager, said: “We have grown from a business with 60 people to an organisation with more than 850 and are now part of a strong global brand. The EDP team has worked within very similar markets to our new KCS colleagues for many years now. It’s a great opportunity to combine our industry knowledge and expertise to continue to service our customers old and new with innovative, market leading solutions with a strong unified company name.”
KCS provides software to 15,000 customers worldwide, offering end to end ERP solutions including Supply Chain Management, Financial Management, CRM, Warehouse Management, Business Intelligence, ePOS, and more – specifically for the wholesale, distribution and manufacturing markets.
The rebrand is said to support the company’s strategy of continued growth and follows five acquisitions during the last 15 months in the UK and the Netherlands.
KCS believes that providing all its services under one brand will make it a stronger partner to its customers and enable it to provide more value, particularly as the rebrand does not involve any changes to existing products.
Ian Bendelow, CEO at KCS, added: “We are endeavouring to ensure that the rebrand has a minimal effect on our customers so that it is very much business as usual. As previously confirmed we will continue to support the EDP products and customers with the same level of excellence and professionalism all of our customers have come to expect as the company transitions to the KCS brand. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the loyal EDP customers for their continued support during this exciting development in the company’s long history.”
