VAI Focuses on Cloud-Based ERP Opportunities, Security, and Market Growth in 2021
Ronkonkoma, N.Y. — Dec. 9, 2021 — VAI, a leading enterprise resource planning (ERP) software developer, announced it is concluding its fiscal year 2021, helping hardgoods, food, and pharmaceutical customers thrive in today’s current business environment with its flagship ERP solution, S2K Enterprise. As many organizations continue to face unprecedented challenges, from supply chain disruptions and worker shortages to security risks and safeguarding data, VAI has been a crucial partner to its customers every step of the way, ensuring continued business success and digital continuity.
Even before the final numbers are in, VAI has achieved significant year over year growth to its customer base, with a focus on fulfilling a need with an ERP solution for specific supported industries. One such food customer, McAneny Brothers, Inc., a grocery distributor, selected VAI’s Food ERP software solution to run its full-service convenience and grocery store distribution business. With VAI, McAneny Brothers now automates its food business processes across the organization while ensuring compliance with food safety regulations. VAI recently saw new and existing customers, such as PruittHealth and ABA Packaging, select VAI Cloud to run their operations more securely in VAI’s Data Centers. With a continued need for remote operations and scalable applications, customers have turned to VAI Cloud for their data hosting and security needs.
“As organizations continue to digitize their operations to keep up with market changes and to meet new demands from customers, more companies are transitioning to the cloud. Over 80% of our new customers are hosting their applications with VAI Cloud, helping them easily access S2K ERP applications such as CRM, analytics, and mobile,” said Kevin Beasley, CIO at VAI. “To support this growing demand for cloud services, VAI ensures updated security and disaster recovery features, 24/7 support, and increased visibility to make informed decisions about their cloud environment.”
VAI also held its Business Growth and Leadership Fall Forum virtually this year. Featuring keynote speakers including renowned authors, Seth Mattison and Sam Richter, a digital information specialist, as well as customer testimonials, workshops, and more, VAI’s 2021 Fall Forum enabled VAI executives, customers, and prospects to collaborate and discuss how they can modernize business operations in a digital world and pursue new digital transformation opportunities.
Over the last year, VAI made updates to S2K Analytics and rolled out a new data center, helping to expand its VAI Cloud ERP offering and ensure customers are getting the most innovative, best-in-class products on the market. VAI also released its new application, S2K Business Alerts Powered by Twilio to help improve organizations’ communication processes. Recognized for these achievements and more, VAI was named to Food Logistics’ 2021 Top Green Providers List, Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2021 Top Supply Chain Project, and CRN’s 2021 Solution Provider 500 List.
“We’re excited about the growth ahead for VAI and our customers as we head into 2022,” Bob Vormittag, CEO and President at VAI. “Business leaders have had to learn to adapt to a digitally-first environment in the past few years, creating new opportunities for innovation and market expansion.
