Pros: Software if very flexible, but requires a great deal of modification for most business'. Software support is fairly good.

Cons: Based on out of date IBM AS/400 technology. Everything that touches the system is needlessly expensive and requires a wide variety of 'hacks' to make it work with modern systems.
All reports are super generic plain text and require expensive software and more expensive custom programming to make a report that you expect from a accounting package. Also will only work with certain specific printers.
Software has been built-on for 20+ years and the latest version utilizes a modern web user interface, but it is still just a pretty front end on an old fashioned green screen terminal program.
Software security is lacking in many areas (unencrypted communications between server and clients is a sore spot).
Once again, if you're looking to move your company to state of the art software from 1985, then this is your best bet.
I'm praying that the local company will quit dumping money into a bottomless pit and let's start over.
Pretty much everything you do is billable (phone calls, emails, fixing software bugs in their program, all get passed along to the customer).

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.

Recommendations to other buyers: All businesses have unique needs, but take the time up front to find places where you can compromise. If you can change internal policies to work with the software, without risking your business practices, you will find that the long term costs of running an ERP are considerably reduced. Also, whichever system you do choose, be sure to get inhouse people educated to train your staff - and maintain inhouse documentation on the what, and why, of working with the system.

Pros: Product is a full suite and turn key solution to our software needs. VAI is great to deal with as they work very closely in meeting all our needs and responding right away to our support.

Cons: The price but liek anything in life you get what you pay for.

Recommendations to other buyers: We evaluated at least a dozen ERP systems for manufacturing, distribution and retail and VAI's S2K was a clear winner since it had everything we needed. We've been on the system since 2009 and feel like we made the best decision especially when switching ERPs can be a daunting task.
