Aiphone Enhances Manufacturing Processes with VAI S2K

Complete ERP Solution Enables Full Integration of Business Applications and User-Friendly Interface for Leading Communication Systems Company

RONKONKOMA, N.Y.--()--VAI (Vormittag Associates, Inc.), a leading provider of ERP software, announced that Aiphone, the most respected and reliable brand of communication systems in the world, is improving its manufacturing and inventory management processes with the latest version of its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, S2K 5.0.

Aiphone is the leading manufacturer of intercom solutions for communication and security, providing audio and video systems, and specializing in access entry and control systems. The company needed a complete ERP solution that integrated all of its critical business applications including accounts receivable, sales analysis, manufacturing, service billing (repairs), data warehouse, inventory management, fixed assets, and faxing. After evaluating several solutions, Aiphone determined that with its flexible graphical user interface (GUI) and comprehensive manufacturing models, VAI’s S2K 5.0 software was the ideal solution.

“VAI’s ERP solution has transformed our business operations,” said Scott Antes, manager of information technologies, Aiphone. “S2K 5.0 seamlessly integrates all of our business applications to give us the data we need, when we need it. The fact that S2K 5.0 runs on the IBM Power™ Systems was a critical component for us and its interface provides a great overall user experience.”

VAI’s S2K 5.0 software is streamlining Aiphone’s manufacturing processes. With S2K’s new MRP, CRP, Shop Floor Control and Finite Scheduling capabilities and friendly user interface, Aiphone is able to gain better insight into its data by identifying trends and sales history.

“For mid- sized organizations such as Aiphone, it is critical that an ERP system integrates with critical business functions and provides a good user experience,” said Pete Zimmerman, manufacturing segment manager, VAI. “We designed our S2K 5.0 software to be intuitive and easy-to-use, and we’re pleased to help Aiphone enhance its manufacturing processes.”
