Overview

Elite have over 20 years’ experience in integrating our EPoS solutions to a wide range of accounts and ERP solutions. Our Kerridge K8 integration provides a 2-way, near real-time synchronisation with Elite POS to enable Retailers, Trade Counter businesses and any other customer facing or Mail-Order Telephone-Order businesses to process transactions quickly into Kerridge financials and distribution modules.

See how Midland Chandlers (part of Euro Car Parts Group) surfaced existing Kerridge K8 functionally at their Retail/Trade Counter stores with Elite POS integrated with Kerridge.

As you have already invested in, or are looking to implement Kerridge K8, Elite POS works from the Kerridge customer/sales account information, products and pricing at the point of sale, as opposed to running separate systems and databases for the POS system.  The information available to the tills is completely customisable from inside Kerridge via the reports module.

POS transactions are posted back into Kerridge via the K8 web/ecommerce module, which means that any reporting is also handled from a single central solution.

How The Integration Works

Elites POS modules extracts Kerridge Sales Ledger Account data (such as account codes, names, addressees, payment terms, price lists etc), product details (such as codes, descriptions, cost/sell prices and barcodes), stock levels (in stock, allocated and free stock across all locations) and pricing including special prices and quantity breaks and synchronises this information with the tills. Tills can then trade online, or offline should network or internet issues occur.

The EPoS is then able to carry out sales/refunds, make enquiries on customer accounts or products, take payments on account and many other actions. These EPoS transactions are passed immediately back to Kerridge as completed orders, along with the linked receipt/payment made at the point of sale. All automatically allocated and posted.

Please take a moment to view some of our screenshots and product videos to see how the POS and integration to Kerridge operates, or CONTACT US to arrange a no-obligation demonstration.

Why Elite’s Kerridge K8 POS Solution is Better Than Others

Few POS systems on the market have the ability to integrate with Kerridge. Usually this would involve a large project with a fully bespoked solution, costing a small fortune. Many EPoS vendors will be happy to write a custom link from their EPoS to Kerridge, however run into difficulties when they realise the complexities behind this. Elite have an off the shelf POS solution with a quality integration framework for integrating with Kerridge. Only minor changes are required at each customer site to map with your specific requirements.

With many systems, transactions from EPoS to Sage are often summarised or posted as overnight batches. You therefore lose vital details captured at the till, which are important for accurate reporting, forecasting, cash reconciliation and stock replenishment. This process may also be a manual export/import of files. Elite POS automatically posts transactions in full detail, in near real-time (if required). You therefore have detailed POS transactional data from within Kerridge at any time; just the same as if you had processed the order within Kerridge.

Also consider the level of Sage data that is made available to the EPoS solution. Again, many software vendors often talk of “integration”, but do look at the detail behind this. Elite’s K8 integration passes sales ledger accounts, including trading terms, special price lists, full product details such as pricing bands and item profile information. This is all configurable to meet the needs of your business via the K8 report module, without the high costs associated with bespoke solutions.
