Best of all, we have the flexibility to scale our cloud capacity as we grow."
-David Lombardo, Comptroller, US Air Tool Co.

Anderson & Vreeland Inc

"Partnering with VAI to add a cloud-based ERP solution was the best thing we could have done. In the past, if our 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."
-Bertha Pinto, IT Director at Anderson & Vreeland


"S2K for the Web has increased our revenue by 10% and our inventory turns by 30%. In ROI terms, we’ve paid for S2K within a year, and we’ve secured a number of very large customers out of this. Waytek has picked up 1,000 new customers since we installed VAI’s integrated S2K eBusiness and S2K Enterprise Software. We’ve secured a number of very good, large customers and we’ve experienced a significant increase in revenues and inventory turns."
-Bob Lamoreaux, President, Waytek, Inc.

Compass Health

"Since we first started working with VAI, Compass Health Brands has experienced significant growth, even throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Beyond a jump in Average Order Value, we’ve seen a shift from customers calling our staff directly to place orders to increases in self-service. This is giving our employees the opportunity to move Compass Health Brands forward, not just support business by filling orders that could occur with a more frictionless website experience."
-David Jones, Vice President, e-commerce and Digital at Compass Health Brands

S2K Food
Seacore Seafood

Material Requirements Planning (MRP)

"VAI's MRP solution provides total inventory visibility, which leads to fewer resources invested in products that sit on shelves and, ultimately, improved customer service.

The powerful forecasting technology has resulted in increased purchasing by as much as 25 percent in some areas so that we are able to always meet customer demand."
-Scott Miller, Vice President of Procurement at COMP Cams

MG Electronics

"At Kauffman, we offer customers industry-leading warehouse solutions, but to do so consistently and efficiently, it’s crucial that we streamline our own internal processes and have visibility into our workflow.

Because of this solution, we have become more environmentally friendly, efficient and profitable."
-Scott Hite, CFO at Kauffman Engineering Inc.

-Marcus Kanhai, Sales Manager, A.S. Bryden & Sons

Garratt Callahan

"As a longtime VAI customer, we’ve always appreciated the constant release of new and enhanced VAI products, and we were particularly excited about the S2K Order Entry application functionality, given the sales nature of our business. The offline capability of the Order Entry application enables our organization to communicate more effectively and more quickly, and our sales representatives no longer have to wait for an internet connection at a customer site to create an order."
-Reema Rios, Quality System Manager, Garratt-Callahan

Ace Surgical

"When we were looking for a system, it wasn’t just that we had more data available to us but that it was also very particular to the pharmaceutical industry.

-George K. Richards, President, Capital Wholesale Drug Co.

-Jeff Bell, Store Manager, Phantom Fireworks

-Rachel Christian, Business Systems Analyst, Algoma Hardwoods, Inc.

Supply and Demand Planning
ACME Tools

"Customers come to Acme Tools as a one-stop shop for all their tools and equipment needs. Our inventory has to be accurate. With VAI’s Enhanced Suggested Purchasing, our ‘out of stocks’ and ‘back orders’ have decreased significantly, which results in improved customer service and streamlined purchasing processes for our sales staff. This visibility ensures we have the right amount of supplies at the right time—saving us time and money."
-Dean Spicer, Acme Tools


"With VAI Supply and Demand Planning, we don’t have to spend a lot of time analyzing the data because the system is doing it for us. The application will also put truckloads together for us. If a load falls a little bit short, you can increase items by a percentage to get a full truck in a sensible way. The system knows how big the truck is and how much space the product occupies. It knows vendor minimums and maximums, all the nuances of ordering. So why not let the system do it for us?"
-Harry Westfall, IT Director, ImperialDade

Unlimited User License
Concordance Healthcare Solutions

"Merging three companies presents enormous challenges when it comes to transitioning and standardizing onto common technology platforms. VAI’s S2K Enterprise was a unanimous decision based on the performance of the system to streamline our distribution and supply chain, but also, the unlimited user license removed a significant cost barrier that could often impede business growth like we are experiencing."
-Keith Price, VP of Information Services, Concordance Healthcare Services

Musson Group of Companies

"Since going live on VAI’s S2K Enterprise in 2002, we have gone from 2 billion to 13 billion in annual sales, with over 100 companies running the software. A great advantage for Musson Group is the total cost of ownership from the VAI’s Unlimited User License, which allows us to add new users as we grow, without paying additional software licensing. This alone has saved us a ton of money."
-Blondel Walker, IT Director, Musson Group


"We estimate that VAI’s S2K Warehouse has reaped accounting staff time savings of over 50%. Additionally, the combination of real-time inventory, cycle counting and RF devices has yielded negligible inventory variances. We dropped from a $170,000 variance to less than $5,000 in one year."   
-Mark Craddock, IT Director, Dorcy International

Specialty Products Company

"The company can boast 99.9% on-time shipments, 99.9% inventory accuracy, and a less than .02% error rate with S2K Warehouse."   
-Mina Cox, Chief Operating Officer, Specialty Products Co.

Warehouse with Mobile
Ethical Product Inc

"The new S2K Warehouse Mobile software and hardware that we implemented from VAI has enabled us to turn our orders around in 24 hours or less at a 99.6% fill rate with very little back orders."   
-Jonathan Zelinger, President, Ethical Products, Inc.
