Allegheny York Selects VAI S2K Enterprise to Enhance Purchasing
Leading Manufacturer & Distributor Implements ERP Software to Improve Processes and Create Efficiencies
Ronkonkoma, N.Y. – September 19, 2011 – VAI (Vormittag Associates, Inc.), an award-winning ERP software provider, and its technology partner Pro Solutions, announced that Allegheny York, a leading manufacturer and distributor of quality seals and packings for commercial, industrial and military applications, has launched VAI S2K Enterprise Software. VAI S2K Enterprise software helps companies manage and analyze virtually every aspect of a company’s business processes.
In an effort to replace its legacy software and hardware package with a program that would make its purchasing processes more efficient, Allegheny York sought an effective ERP software tool that could be implemented seamlessly into its backend system. With VAI S2K Enterprise, the company can now manage purchasing of its high-quality seals and packing via the fully integrated and easy-to-use S2K enterprise software.
Prior to selecting VAI S2K Enterprise, the manufacturer needed to replace legacy software that was no longer being supported by the industry. Following a thorough evaluation process, Allegheny York selected VAI because of the ease of integration of its software with an eCommerce solution.
Additionally, S2K’s customizable, streamlined platform is designed to simplify all business processes including purchasing, and has the ability to be up and running in short order. Further, Allegheny York required a very large item number as part of the solution, which VAI was able to custom add to the enterprise package. The implementation was conducted in less than three weeks, and included on-site support by the VAI team.
“Given a diverse customer base comprised of companies across all 50 U.S. states and several international clients, we needed a technology that could be fully integrated into our back-end system and improve our purchasing process both offline and online,” said Chip Konrad, president, Allegheny York. “We expect that VAI S2K Enterprise will make our overall processes more efficient, enabling us to continue to provide customers with the best possible product.”
“With the addition of VAI S2K Enterprise, Allegheny York will benefit from a solution that is so well integrated and consistent, it will enable them to provide customers with a total eCommerce solution and speed up the purchasing process,” said Pete Zimmerman, manufacturing segment manager, VAI. “As Allegheny continues to grow, the product’s ability to scale and absorb a high volume of demand will be essential to their success.”
