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 was to develop a new Magento 2 eCommerce website with data integration to the Unicol existing system.
The requirements included building an easy to use website to allow customers to purchase simple, configurable or bespoke products. The solution included the creation of an Application Programme Interface between the eCommerce web solution and the UNICOL database system.
The new solution provides a one-stop-shop for UNICOL customers to access all UNICOL products and product information.
The outcome was a huge success with enhanced take-up of the eCommerce site, increased sales, customer satisfaction and engagement.
“KFA have been an extremely easy and helpful company to work with from the word go. No challenge was too tough and no task was too small and we most definitely gave them a fair few of both!
They have produced a website that we are extremely proud of and one that has received positive feedback from launch, it features a modern design and provides an easy way to buy products, download brochures, get instructions, watch videos and more.
I couldn’t recommend KFA enough.”

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.”
