DataSwitch a vital instrument for helping BKW halve reordering times

One of the UK’s leading instrumentation engineers has slashed the time it takes on stock reordering by 50% after implementing DataSwitch from K3 Syspro.

BKW Instruments is a leading supplier, manufacturer, and distributor of instrumentation solutions across a number of industries including water, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, oil and gas, energy, HVAC and more. The business is a long standing customer of K3 Syspro, having first implemented a SYSPRO Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution from the business over twenty years ago. When the business sought a solution to help automate its complex reordering processes, K3 Syspro was the obvious first port of call.

BKW’s previous warehouse management system was labour intensive and operated in a reactive nature. The task of re-ordering stock was time consuming and relied entirely on human input, which also left it open to human error.

“ With DataSwitch, we are saving on paper usage and have slashed the time it takes to carry out this process by 50%.”

Thurlby had a very specific idea in mind when looking at ERP. They needed a successor for its aging systems that would integrate several programs, ensure continuity and remain current and supported for at least 10 years. They found all that and more with K3 Syspro.
