VAI (Vormittag Associates, Inc.)
This ERP is suited for products that do not require customizations or personalization. Ideally, if you are selling a product as is, then S2K will fit your needs. Make sure to have all of the requirements for each piece laid out. For instance, with products - know all of your attributes and functionality for product pages ahead of time. Include this in the presentation for ERP selection. Ask what functionality is out of the box, and what is a customization. Ask for quotes ahead of time. This may increase the overall cost of the ERP as well as the time it takes to launch. Example: Product reviews, cross sells, remarketing, abandoned cart integration, etc

Cons
VAI (Vormittag Associates, Inc.)
  • There will most likely be customizations made for a particular niche site to integrate with their system.
  • Product reviews, up sells, and cross sells are not built into the website functionality. Customization to the offerings would be needed.
  • Very little documentation or open source resources on instructions or development in regards to the website design and integration with the ERP.

  • Their layout and limited web capabilities are a turn-off
  • They lack basic functionality in their web [version]

If this is someone's first ERP implementation, I strongly suggest you ask for services to help implement. Ask for training on every aspect of the implementation. Make sure this is put into the overall ERP quote

S2K offered a system that could be used by various departments. There were modules for accounting, customer service, order entry, and web development. The ability to customize the website integration was a plus. S2K allows the option to have products in different warehouse locations. This allowed us to better manage inventory and see in real time what the stock status was

I have used Fund EZ and QuickBooks. Unit4 is for larger organizations and was needed for our scaling.

  • Our business processes were in flux when the initial build of our system was taking place - this made lives very difficult. Make sure processes are set!
  • Time - beyond what could have been imagined - this is a huge project, that needs proper resources assigned to it within a company when planning to install.
