A Great ERP Package for Small to Mid Sized Businesses

Pros

The software has a solid base upon which to build upon. All basic software functions are covered, but VAI has the staff and knowledge to help customers tailor the solution to their unique business needs. They have a well rounded staff that can help with new technology and business needs, but they are small enough that you get personalized attention.

Cons

By allowing so much customization, they also make continuing with their latest ugrades more difficult, at least from a dollar perspective. So many of their latest enhancements are built on being at the latest release, and to get there you have to rebuild your customization.

Good but hard to use.

I like it, however I think it is hard to use. I also do not like that I cannot edit an invoice.

Pros

I like the dependability of the product. I like that it is ran from a server and not online only.

Cons

The software is hard to use. If you or your employees are not good with computers and programs, this is not the software for you.

Reasons for choosing S2K Enterprise

It was server based.

Reasons for switching to S2K Enterprise

We went back to VAI

S2K Implementation

The experience was OK. The consultants are deeply knowledgeable but extremely busy. If you are planning to implement S2K, you need a strong project manager in your company. The S2K consultants are very savvy when it comes to technology, but they need a lot of direction. I had to try to coordinate their resources through different points of contact which was frustrating

Pros

A mature product with tons of features. It does not require any integrations since it manages a full range of modules under one system

Cons

Not really cloud software. You need to VPN to their servers which might require you to buy extra equipment. Their software runs on IBM i series which is a very robust platform, but it is not easy to find support for. Some of the screens look outdated.

Reasons for choosing S2K Enterprise

The idea of having all modules under one roof was very appealing to us. However, the company decided to not continue with the implementation.

S2K Enterprise

S2K was easy to implement other divisions into, Cognos Analytics is very powerful. Overall it was a good choice and will continue to be for the future.

Pros

Platform is IBM midrange system, not a fan of Windows for mission critical apps. Very versatile and customizable. Licensing is very affordable. Good out of the box functionality. Unlike other large ERP systems, you can get someone on the phone that is able to help, all the way up to the [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN].

Cons

MRP could use some help, limited ability to do capacity planning. Budgeting is not the best.

Reasons for choosing S2K Enterprise

best balance of price, support, and functionality.

Reasons for switching to S2K Enterprise

Needed a consolidated platform that handled manufacturing and distribution, heavy on customer facing order entry.

Good Value

Pros

Good basic ERP for a reasonable cost. Based on IBM iSeries, which is a stable platform. Source code is available, making it easy to modify if necessary. Support staff is extremely responsive.

Cons

We are on an old version and most of the Cons have been addressed in the new version.
