VAI provides AVA Companies with cloud-based ERP solution to enhance operations and upgrade warehouse processes, including real-time reporting and analytics

Ronkonkoma, N.Y. – August 9, 2019 - VAI, a leading ERP software developer and parent company of VAI Cloud LLC, and AVA Companies, a leading New York-based food production company, are working together to support AVA’s growing customer base and enhancing supply chain capabilities. By integrating all departments within VAI’s centrally-managed cloud-based ERP system, all of AVA Companies’ departmental functions are delivering optimized performance and significant cost savings.

When it comes to serving customers in the Northeast with case-ready meat products, there are few companies that have the capabilities of AVA Companies. Founded in 1985, AVA prides themselves on helping clients capitalize on sales opportunities, while driving gross profit and eliminating shrink. As a leading case-ready meat products company, AVA relies on smooth back end operations and a lean supply chain - requiring them to invest in a fully integrated ERP solution to meet distribution needs.

As AVA began its search for an ERP software system, the company was looking for an all-inclusive solution that would eliminate complex IT operations while simultaneously managing its diverse infrastructure.

“At AVA, our primary focus is serving as a center for case-ready programs, not managing enterprise applications,” said Domenic Capul, vice president of AVA Companies. “Since working with VAI, we’ve never experienced downtime - something only a handful of other companies of our size can say. We run a large distribution operation where things are constantly moving, and we require a solution that streamlines all these processes. VAI has provided an exceptional solution and customer service, and we look forward to our future with VAI as a trusted partner.”

With VAI’s S2K cloud-based solution, AVA can concentrate on running their business and ERP applications while leaving the infrastructure management to VAI. This has enabled AVA’s employees to work seamlessly while harnessing the ability to access all enterprise applications in a centralized database. VAI’s ERP solution equips AVA with the advanced technology they require to reduce costs, grow, make smarter business decisions, and address real- time business imperatives.

“With VAI’s cloud-based ERP software with S2K Analytics, AVA Companies has complete visibility into their entire business operations, including product inventory, customer service, system integration, and warehouse management,” said Gary Barter, project director, food division at VAI. “S2K’s fully integrated system enables them to maximize the value and insights of their data while improving overall business processes.”
