VAI Advances Business Goals in 2020 With the Launch of S2K 6.2, Eyes Key Growth in 2021

January 12, 2021

Ronkonkoma, N.Y. — Jan. 12, 2021 — VAI, a leading ERP software developer, announced it has concluded its fiscal year 2020 with major developments to its cloud-based ERP solution, S2K Enterprise OnCloud, helping customers overcome the challenges of the current market and thrive in today’s digital landscape. VAI launched version 6.2 of S2K Enterprise OnCloud, with new innovations to its software suite. Unveiled in October during its virtual conference, Prevail 2020, S2K 6.2 offers new efficiencies and innovations around S2K Warehouse, S2K Supply & Demand Planning, S2K Mobile, and S2K Analytics, as well as enhanced integration between S2K Marketing Cloud, Sales Force, and eBusiness applications.

Prevail 2020 was VAI’s first virtual conference, which saw record-breaking attendance with an increase of over 200% from the previous on-site user conference. Featuring guest speakers, customer testimonials, workshops, partner participation, and more, VAI and its customers collaborated, reviewed roadmap plans, and discussed business resiliency amid disruption, as companies increasingly rely on technology to successfully compete in a digitized world.  

VAI customer, Magid Glove & Safety, a work safety equipment provider, spoke via video about how the company faired amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The company offers a variety of products including personal protective equipment (PPE). Leveraging S2K Manufacturing as part of S2K Enterprise with material requirements planning (MRP) and shop floor data collection, Magid Glove & Safety met the increased demand of personal protection equipment (PPE) by healthcare providers and long-term care facilities throughout the pandemic. By utilizing data-driven tools, real-time analytics, and automated functions within S2K Manufacturing, Magid Glove & Safety could track supply and demand, organize its shop floor, and serve the communities most in need.

“Our customers require the most sophisticated ERP solution on the market and a reliable partner who can work with them to exceed their IT goals, especially in challenging times,” said Bob Giustino, VP of Operations at VAI. “By leveraging S2K Enterprise OnCloud, organizations can unlock real-time visibility into their data and meet customer demand. Looking ahead to 2021, we’re excited to continue supporting our customers’ technology goals and see them succeed beyond their expectations.”

Recognized by the cloud industry for the product advancements of S2K 6.2, VAI was shortlisted for Best Cloud ERP Solution for the second consecutive year in the 2020-21 Cloud Awards. The Cloud Awards program is one of the longest-standing and most influential platforms for organizations to gain recognition for their cloud-based offerings, and VAI’s inclusion recognizes the product development achieved by the company in 2020.

The pandemic altered the economic landscape and in response, organizations across every industry have had to very quickly restructure how they do business. Those companies operating without a business resiliency plan and a strong technical foundation may have found themselves looking to quickly adopt the tools needed to seamlessly implement a work-from-home structure, strengthen security, and enable online ordering and mobile capabilities.

“2020 was a tough year for many companies. From hard goods and manufacturing to food and pharmaceutical, these companies looked to technology as the way to succeed in a completely altered landscape,” said Bob Vormittag, CEO and President at VAI. “While we have long prepared for disruption and have implemented disaster recovery and business continuity protocols at VAI, from the onslaught of the pandemic, we have worked tirelessly to shore up our customers’ business continuity with S2K Enterprise OnCloud. In fact, many of our customers have already implemented our cloud solution which enables secure remote work capabilities, and eBusiness and mobile capabilities to enter and track sales and place orders online when physical ordering may not be possible. These customers were well situated to leverage these capabilities very successfully. Others are looking to add cloud and other business resilient applications in the coming year, and we are ready to assist them to ensure their success.
