VAI Recognized as a Leading Software Provider in Food Logistics Magazine's 2011 FL100 ListLeading Business Magazine Releases Annual Listing of Software and Technology Providers (December 15, 2011)
RONKONKOMA, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 12/15/11 -- VAI (Vormittag Associates, Inc.), an award-winning ERP software provider, today announced its inclusion in this year's Food Logistics FL100 list recognizing software and technology providers that better enable grocery and foodservice distributors and manufacturers to achieve their business goals. This year, the publication focused on solution providers that are helping their customers differentiate themselves in the marketplace, while simultaneously facilitating improved safety and traceability throughout the supply chain.
Food Logistics recognized VAI S2K Enterprise for Food, which allows companies to manage enterprise resources and supply chain and customer relationships more efficiently and effectively. S2K for Food helps businesses comply with the new FDA Food Safety Modernization Act by using lot control to track the shelf life date of all products, in both inbound and outgoing shipments. If a recall ever occurs, the Distributors and Manufacturers will know exactly which customers received products from that lot number.
"With the passage of the FDA's landmark Food Safety and Modernization Act, the entire food and beverage sector is under increased pressure to improve safety and traceability throughout the supply chain. In addition, the ongoing globalization of food supply chains demands closer collaboration with suppliers and enhanced visibility from farm to fork," notes Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief at Food Logistics. "Technology is a powerful tool that can ensure compliance, mitigate risk, and serve as a market differentiator in today's highly competitive environment."
"VAI is pleased to be included in the 2011 FL100," said Bob Vormittag, president and CEO, VAI. "VAI's S2K for Food comprises numerous capabilities and flexible, user-friendly features that give businesses the technology needed to remain competitive. S2K Enterprise for Food delivers a comprehensive set of integrated, cross-functional business processes that helps companies dramatically improve profitability."
Food Logistics is the only publication dedicated exclusively to the grocery and foodservice distribution supply chain. The FL100 listing serves as a resource for grocery and foodservice distribution and manufacturing executives. After receiving nomination forms from end users and solution providers, the editorial staff reviewed over 160 submissions to compile this year's listing. Final recipients are featured in the November/December 2011 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
