This year the KCS Group traces its roots back to 1976 and is proud to celebrate 40 years of providing innovative computer software solutions to the distribution, manufacturing and field service sectors.

Ian Bendelow, chief executive officer, said: “Although computer technology has progressed dramatically over the past 40 years and business needs have changed considerably, we have remained true to our company’s ethos. Focusing on the needs of our customers, we deliver quality solutions to address their business needs and technical innovation that adds real value to their bottom line. For our customers we bring consistency, stability, longevity and innovation. We are particularly proud to have established many long-term relationships and to have seen our customers develop and prosper. Those long term relationships, many of whom have been with us for 10, 20 and more than 30 years, really make a difference. Driven by entrepreneurial opportunities our customers are constantly innovating and it’s been our job to support those opportunities and also bring technology innovation. It is amazing to reflect on how 40 years of supporting distributors/wholesales and merchants has evolved”.
