Scope of implementation of K2 in the company Arid

katetrThe company Arid now manages all the information about its stock in the K2 information system and manages the client records in it too. The system also takes care of dispatch, accounts and wages at the Czech head office and the Slovak branch. They also manage their B2B and B2C portals directly in K2.

Points of interest about implementation of the information system K2


  • The Czech head office and Slovak branch work in a single K2 installation.
  • The K2 information system makes it possible to use the barcodes of manufacturers of the warehoused goods for records. So there is no need to print out their own barcodes and stick them on each product separately.
  • The e-shop (in the variant of the B2B and B2C portal) is a direct part of the K2 information system. In this way potential problems with the synchronisation of the e-shop with stores records are obviated.
  • Stocktaking in hospital stores is performed directly in a barcode reader, and the results are saved directly to the lists in the K2 information system.
  • Thanks to K2 it is possible to issue goods not only according to type, but also according to a concrete batch or expiry date.

The traceability of batches, expiry dates and full retrospective traceability of product origin are wholly fundamental requirements for an ERP system working with medical equipment. K2 complies absolutely with these ERP requirements. During implementation we also invested much effort into ensuring that the risk of operator errors was reduced to the absolute minimum. So for example during issue the barcode reader checks that the store operator is truly holding the batch that the sales department requires be dispatched.

The K2 system allows us to very rapidly and effectively process our customers’ requirements and edit their histories comprehensively.
