VAI Recognized as an Expert by Nucleus Research in the 2016 ERP Value Matrix


VAI, a leading ERP software provider, today announced that Nucleus Research has recognized the company as an Expert for the third time in its ERP Value Matrix with VAI’s appearance in the 2016 Technology Value Matrix for ERP. The report identifies VAI’s award-winning VAI S2K Enterprise ERP software suite which supports financial management, analytics, Salesforce, mobile, warehouse management, customer relationship management, distribution management, manufacturing management, retail management, specialty food, pharmaceutical, e-commerce, and portal technology.

Nucleus also recognized VAI’s outstanding industry-specific capabilities for the medical, HVAC, electrical supply, food, electronics, janitorial, automotive, building supply, pharmaceutical, and apparel industries. VAI provides comprehensive ERP software solutions for mid-market companies as licensed cloud software hosted in a private cloud or as a traditional on-premise deployment.

“VAI continues as an Expert in the Value Matrix in part due to the company’s strong focus on product investment, commitment to priority service, and customer-driven development,” said Seth Lippincott, analyst, Nucleus Research. “The company’s investments in mobile functionality, cloud, CRM, and end-to-end supplier-to-customer relationship and transaction management help to build on VAI’s extensive history in the ERP space. We expect to see VAI and its customer base grow even further in 2017 and beyond.”

As an example of customers from various industries utilizing VAI’s S2K software, Four Star Salon Services, Aiphone Corp. USA and Black River Produce are automating and streamlining their operations for improved customer service, increased ROI, and company expansion. Each spoke of the value that VAI and the S2K Technology bring to their business and industry.

“Their best-of-breed support was the main reason we chose VAI,” said Herb Chow, IT Director at Four Star Salon Services. “As our organization grew, we acquired companies that used a variety of ERP solutions, none of which were as functional as VAI’s. The level of guidance and day-to-day support VAI provides has made the implementation seamless across our locations. Plus, no other vendor was able to meet our needs from an accounting, manufacturing and distribution standpoint. When we learned about S2K and VAI’s unlimited user license, it quickly became the obvious choice from an ROI perspective – we knew with VAI we could continue growing sustainably.”

“As a manufacturer and distributor, Aiphone Corp. USA must be agile at all times to meet the demands of customers, sales and engineering,” said Scott Antes, CIO at Aiphone Corp. USA. “The detailed platform and ease of use of VAI’s MRP solutions provides us with visibility in a variety of areas that help us continue our growth. No longer are our sales and finance teams bogged down with inputting and processing company data. With VAI’s powerful and intuitive technology, we’ve doubled our sales and product output and have gained the ability to predict and adjust to future process interruptions.”

“Black River Produce, by using S2K, is now far more proactive than we have been in the past,” said Sean Buchanan, President at Black River Produce. “ I feel strongly that as we expand, S2K will be able to adapt with us. VAI has made many accommodations for us along the way, and we are pleased that they will remain a trusted partner.”

“We are extremely pleased with our continued position as an Expert in the Nucleus Research 2016 ERP Value Matrix,” said Bob Vormittag, Founder and CEO, VAI. This distinguished recognition from Nucleus Research validates our customer-service driven and ROI-generating strategy to offer best of breed ERP solutions including exceptional analytics, mobile, and cloud technologies and unparalleled industry-specific capabilities for the ever-changing and fast-growing mid-market.
