McAneny Brothers, Inc. Selects VAI S2K Food to Provide Food Industry Accepted Practices and Foster Agility in Daily Operations

October 27, 2021

Ronkonkoma, N.Y. – October 27, 2021VAI, a leading ERP software developer, announced that McAneny Brothers, Inc. has selected VAI’s Food ERP software solution to run its full-service convenience and grocery store distribution business. The company will leverage S2K Food OnCloud, a fully integrated Cloud ERP solution that automates food business processes across the organization and helps companies comply with food safety regulations.

Headquartered in Ebensburg, PA, McAneny Brothers offers online ordering and next-day delivery throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, and New York. Its 171,000 square foot warehouse facility features a 54,000 square foot refrigeration wing and 20,000 square foot freezer, eighteen primary shipping docks, ten climate-controlled docks, and around-the-clock shifts to ensure orders are picked correctly and shipped quickly.

Prior to selecting VAI S2K Food, the company was struggling with a system that lacked flexibility and the ability to quickly adapt to trends, challenges, and changes within the company’s industry. Features and functions that are available in modern solutions were either absent or difficult and expensive to implement. McAneny Brothers began an extensive search for a new ERP food solution that would provide food industry accepted practices and functions to its users and create the framework to futureproof and foster agility in its daily operations.

“Following a year of research and discussions with several leading ERP providers, we selected VAI S2K Food OnCloud as our ERP software provider,” said Jim Homerski, CIO, McAneny Brothers, Inc. “It was the rich feature set, value versus investment, and open standards and flexibility built right into the S2K platform that drove us to select VAI as our ERP vendor and partner.”

The company will use and maintain its existing solution until the S2K software is built and employees have been trained on the new system. Following the S2K Food software implementation, McAneny Brothers looks forward to rapid ROI, elevated productivity across all the company’s operations, and increased user experience and customer satisfaction.

“Now that the McAneny team has selected VAI S2K as its ERP vendor partner, we’re looking forward to the next phase of getting ready for implementation,” said Pete Zimmerman, North American Software Sales Manager, VAI. “We’re excited to work with a great team at McAneny and eager to get the S2K software implemented, particularly the S2K Analytics, eBusiness, and mobile applications that the company is very enthusiastic to leverage. We will be with the McAneny team through every step and beyond to help the company leverage S2K to its fullest and with great success.”

McAneny Brothers will leverage S2K Food in VAI Cloud for financials, distribution, customer relationship management (CRM), warehouse management, manufacturing, service & repair, retail, rental, analytics, mobile order entry and proof-of-delivery (POD), and eBusiness. The company has also selected VAI’s unlimited user licensing option to scale with the company as it grows. VAI’s unique unlimited user licensing allows companies to add unlimited users without additional licensing fees, which can in turn provide significant cost savings and increase the bottom-line.
