December 12, 2022

Ronkonkoma, N.Y. – Dec. 12, 2022 – VAI, a leading ERP software developer, announced that Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, named VAI as one of the winners of its 2022 Top Software & Technology Providers award, which honors software and technology providers that ensure a safe, efficient and reliable global cold food and beverage supply chain. VAI’s S2K Enterprise is designed to meet the requirements of the food industry and to help businesses compete by automating and integrating business processes across the entire organization and helping companies comply with food safety regulations.

This year’s winners are investing in and implementing emerging technologies, from mobile technology and Internet of Things (IoT) to food safety management, routing and scheduling, yard management and more. Today's software and technology offerings provide flexibility, efficiency, safety, visibility and more, and offer end-to-end management, from farm to fork, and beyond.

From the baking industry to convenience and grocery store distributors, food industry companies are choosing VAI S2K Enterprise to automate their operations and add specific applications and technologies to meet their needs. Companies such as Karlsburger Foods first implemented S2K Enterprise over 20 years ago to automate its operations. The company will have its S2K Enterprise up and running on VAI Cloud by the end of 2022. In a recent press release, VAI announced that Karlsburger also plans to add manufacturing capabilities with S2K Material Requirements Planning (MRP), as well as advanced analytics capabilities that will enable the company to unlock more business insights for improved operations.

“The supply chain management software segment is projected to reach $18.04 billion this year, according to Statista. This includes all the emerging software solutions such as barcode systems, FinTech, inventory control, mobile technology, robotics, wireless technology and more,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “These providers and their solutions address challenges in the cold food supply chain, whether that be port closures, driver safety or just simple automating a process.”

“The VAI team thanks Food Logistics for recognizing S2K Food as a leading food ERP solution by naming VAI to the 2022 Top Software and Technology Providers List," said Ira Dannenberg, vice president of R&D – Food Division. “To be successful today, food companies need to utilize advanced technology to control tight margins, increase productivity, and eliminate waste. VAI works in partnership with our customers to ensure they have the latest functionality in their S2K ERP software suite to maximize efficiency and adhere to product traceability.”
