College Woodwork Taps VAI S2K Enterprise to Enhance Inventory Management

Furniture manufacturer implements ERP software to improve processes

Ronkonkoma, N.Y. – Aug. 31, 2011 – VAI (Vormittag Associates, Inc.), an ERP software provider, announced that College Woodwork, a Canadian manufacturer and distributor of high-quality, affordable solid wood furniture, is live on the VAI S2K Enterprise Software.

In an effort to enhance its inventory and warehousing processes, create efficiencies and increase sales, College Woodwork sought an effective ERP software tool that could be up and running in short-order. With VAI S2K Enterprise solution, the company now manages inventory via the fully integrated, real-time and easy-to-use S2K Enterprise Software.

Prior to selecting VAI S2K Enterprise, the manufacturer’s existing legacy software was unable to meet its needs: the manual system did not allow for a review of historical information, nor have the ability to conduct comparisons, run sales analysis, or process inventory in real-time. As a result, the company looked to implement an ERP software solution that could handle its unique business model, which is comprised of multi-location, multi-item inventory. 

VAI S2K Enterprise software was selected for its customizable, streamlined platform designed to simplify all business processes including inventory management. The company also required the speed at which VAI could have the software fully integrated into their existing system, and its ability to scale to accommodate additional locations and divisions.

“Given the amount of product we manufacture and distribute, we needed a technology that could be fully integrated, easy to use, and up and running in a matter of weeks,” said Sheldon Smith, Chief Operating Officer at College Woodwork. “We are extremely pleased with VAI S2K Enterprise, and the almost-immediate benefits we’re seeing on the shop floor, in terms of how we manage our inventory.”
