RONKONKOMA, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VAI, a leading ERP software provider, announced that Dietz & Watson, Inc. has selected its S2K Enterprise for Food software to improve inventory management and manufacturing processes, and gain deeper business insights with analytics.
Founded in 1939, Dietz & Watson is one of the largest preparers of premium deli meats and artisan cheeses, offering more than 1200 products at the finest supermarkets and neighborhood delis throughout the United States and the world.
As a longstanding IBM customer, Dietz & Watson used custom written software on the IBM systems with applications including document imaging, route accounting, production and shipping systems, and mobile environments that supported a national network of sales support personnel. As systems were “bolted on” and new applications developed, the data was segregated into multiple master files and transaction files which became difficult to maintain and trace entries.
In addition, Dietz & Watson needed to eliminate manual processes associated with capturing product data from the shop floor. The company sought a fully integrated ERP system to provide more precise and timely information to allow them to make more prudent decisions.
As an IBM Premium Business Partner with a reputation for delivering cost-effective solutions for mid-market organizations, VAI’s S2K Enterprise for Food software was the best solution for Dietz & Watson.
“With the immense amount of data that resides across various channels, supermarket retailers, warehouse clubs, independent distributors, food service, and mom and pop delis, having an ERP food solution that fits seamlessly into all of our business functions is a must,” said Charles Wolinsky, director of IT, Dietz & Watson. “The stability of the IBM systems coupled with VAI’s ability to present a deep, graphical picture of our operations made S2K Enterprise for Food a sensible solution. We can’t wait to reap the benefits of scalable web and mobile applications, streamlined inventory management and manufacturing, and intuitive analytics that will give us the competitive edge that continues to make Dietz & Watson a world class company.”
Dietz & Watson will leverage the following S2K Enterprise for Food modules: Analytics, CRM, Distribution, Financials, Mobile, Manufacturing, Portal, and WMS.
Using S2K Analytics, Dietz & Watson will provide its sales force with quick, accurate, and visually appealing data that drills down into the details they need. This includes details such as who buys on promotion vs. normal pricing, which proteins are driving sales or causing them to lag and how are they trending, how are the regions performing, who are the best/worst performers, and what is the impact of advertising campaigns with newspapers, media, and television.
“Companies like Dietz & Watson with large operations that rely on mobile and web applications require an ERP system that helps with all facets of their organizations,” said Bob Vormittag, CEO, VAI. “S2K Enterprise for Food will radically improve inventory and manufacturing processes at Dietz & Watson by providing them with the insight needed on order processes, route trucks, warehouse controls, and CRM data.”
