VAI Provides Anderson & Vreeland with Cloud-based Supply and Demand Planning Application to Enhance Warehouse Operations and Inventory

October 24, 2019

Ronkonkoma, N.Y. – October 24, 2019 - VAI, a leading ERP software developer, and Anderson & Vreeland, a leading manufacturer and distributor of digital print and flexographic printing solutions, are working together to scale Anderson & Vreeland’s national footprint. By utilizing VAI’s centrally-managed, cloud-based S2K Enterprise ERP solution with S2K Supply and Demand Planning application, Anderson & Vreeland has enhanced its supply chain visibility and maintained inventory control across 11 locations around the country.

With more than 50 years of experience providing unrivaled customer service to the flexographic printing industry, Anderson & Vreeland offers its customers innovative solutions that are tailored to their specific application. As a manufacturer and distributor of digital print & flexographic printing solutions, Anderson & Vreeland must have a clear and accurate understanding of their inventory to be truly effective and successful - requiring them to invest in a fully integrated ERP solution to meet purchasing and distribution needs.

As Anderson & Vreeland began its search for an ERP software system, the company was looking for an all-inclusive solution that would move data off-premise, while simultaneously allowing them to improve inventory visibility in order fulfillment operations.

“Partnering with VAI to add a cloud-based ERP solution was the best thing we could have done,” said Bertha Pinto, IT Director at Anderson & Vreeland. “In the past, if Anderson & Vreeland’s home-office in New Jersey went down, each location went down, costing us detrimental downtime. Now, by leaning on VAI’s S2K ERP solution, everyone can operate remotely and we no longer have to worry about maintaining our hardware. We also have full visibility across every location, from New Jersey, to our 11 fulfillment centers and warehouses nation-wide. VAI has provided an exceptional cloud ERP solution and customer service, and we look forward to our future as we continue to scale and grow.”

VAI S2K Supply and Demand Planning evaluates all demand and supply requirements to create time-phased replenishment plans for each product at each location. By leveraging historical sales data, systems can forecast demand and predict long-range trends, as well as seasonality for each item. The application can also consider multiple warehouses in the distribution network, check for overstocked items, and facilitate stock transfers before Anderson & Vreeland places orders to vendors.

Additionally, utilizing VAI’s cloud takes the complexity of running a cloud-based infrastructure out of Anderson & Vreeland’s hands, and also gives it the benefit of a fully redundant data center. This includes all of the maintenance, management, and upgrades of the cloud infrastructure, allowing Anderson & Vreeland to concentrate on running its business. With VAI’s S2K cloud-based solution, Anderson & Vreeland employees can work remotely from any location while harnessing the ability to access all enterprise applications in a centralized database.

“VAI’s S2K has helped Anderson & Vreeland improve inventory management, maintain a better product mix, reduce inventory costs, and effectively manage workflow triggers to monitor specific, mission-critical activities,” said Pete Zimmerman, North American Software Sales Manager at VAI. “S2K’s fully integrated system enables them to maximize the value and insights of their data in the cloud while seamlessly tracking inventory control. The company can confidently leave the complexity of running the system safely in the hands of VAI and S2K, and concentrate on growing its business.”
