EDP Limited is rebranded to Kerridge Commercial Systems

March 2019

Kerridge Commercial Systems, provider of integrated software solutions for manufacturing, wholesale, and distribution, has announced that Electronic Data Processing Limited (EDP) has been rebranded as Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS).

Over four decades of steady growth and diversification, KCS has acquired a number of companies, each trading with a different name. With that in mind, and after much research and consideration, KCS decided to reduce the complexity of the brand by incorporating each of the new companies within the KCS name.

“We have grown from a business with sixty people to an organisation with more than 850 and are now part of a strong global brand,” explains Pete Clegg, Sales Account Manager.  “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.”

UK headquartered KCS already provides software to 15,000 customers worldwide, offering end to end ERP solutions specifically for the wholesale, distribution and manufacturing markets.  The rebrand supports 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 powerful brand will make it a stronger partner to its customers and enable it to provide even 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.”
