VAI Helps American Glass Expand its Warehouse Abilities Through S2K Analytics and S2K Warehouse
Ronkonkoma, N.Y. – June 24 2021 – VAI, a leading ERP software developer, is supporting American Glass Distributors, an auto glass distributing company and an existing S2K Enterprise software customer, in deploying S2K Analytics to gain operation insights and drive business growth. This marks the most recent development in the companies’ long-time partnership. Through VAI’s S2K Analytics software, which is a business intelligence and analytics application with built-in artificial intelligence (AI), American Glass can eliminate supply chain errors and integrate advanced analytics for stronger business operations.
American Glass, who has been a user of VAI’s S2K Enterprise ERP solution for over 20 years, runs S2K in its business operations and also uses S2K Warehouse Management System (WMS) to manage its warehouse. The company recently added S2K Analytics to better analyze business data and increase profits. Before implementing S2K Analytics, American Glass needed greater insight into the company’s data and the ability to look at the patterns not easily seen or identified without an analytics application.
The addition of S2K Analytics has enhanced the ability of S2K Enterprise beyond just traditional ERP capabilities. Instead of trying to build a solution from scratch, American Glass found greater flexibility and larger operational insights with S2K Analytics, as well as with VAI’s S2K Warehouse integration with S2K Analytics, which enables detailed insight into warehouse operations and enhances efficiencies.
“With S2K Analytics, we can bypass manual processes and can analyze and drive profit from the platform, helping to eliminate errors and focus instead on sales growth,” said Kevin Atkins, CEO at American Glass. “The VAI partnership combined with the S2K Enterprise software allows us to fine tune our operations quicker and easier with added flexibility. By implementing S2K Analytics, we can increase efficiency in our warehouse, save on costs, and scale the business.”
Since integrating S2K Analytics with S2K Enterprise and S2K Warehouse, American Glass has gained quantifiable insights into sales, inventory, and production. The solution enables American Glass to change day-to-day operations based on data insights, to help in areas such as advancing productivity, restocking inventory, executing orders, and tracking products throughout the supply chain. In addition, S2K Analytics has helped the IT department increase their bandwidth, giving them the power to analyze results immediately and drive profit.
“By implementing S2K Analytics, American Glass gains additional insights into their operations to grow production power and fine-tune processes throughout the entire company,” said Bill Szybillo, business intelligence manager at VAI. “American Glass can focus their attention on the production and analysis side of the business, leaving the support and training to the VAI team. This has opened up a whole new way for American Glass to evaluate operations and drive growth moving forward, and VAI will be there every step of the way.”
