VAI introduces S2K Smart Center
Oct 03, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Vormittag Associates, Inc., or VAI, a provider of ERP software, has unveiled S2K Smart Center, a configurable web-based user experience that supports single sign-on, common navigation, uniform look and feel across the entire family of VAI's S2K ERP software solutions.
This new user interface combines deep industry processes and analytics with new social collaboration tools to create a more satisfying, easier-to-use software experience that helps midmarket customers make better-informed business decisions much faster than ever before while increasing productivity and collaboration throughout their organizations.
Today, midmarket organizations need to do more with less and become as productive as possible while providing the highest levels of customer service. To do so, they need easy and immediate access to the tools and information they need to do their jobs within one browser session. Traditional ERP systems can often hinder productivity, overwhelming users with a wealth of applications and functions that may not be relevant for them. With S2K Smart Center, each knowledge worker can customize their own ERP applications and add new social collaboration tools, thus leveraging a role-based user experience that allows them to access business functions with proactive, real-time decision-making using a common look and feel.
For example, users can configure their computer screens with the exact applications and information that is important to their specific job function, thereby doubling their productivity and allowing them to respond instantly to business demands. Furthermore, S2K Smart Center instantly notifies users of To Do's, Alerts and Company News from a dynamic home screen. From this one comprehensive screen, users can easily collaborate about tasks with one another while reacting to pressing business issues. And, S2K Smart Center also includes Instant Messaging, allowing users to chat with colleagues and business associates in real time. Lastly, users can sync their Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Notes/Domino contacts, calendar events and email with VAI's S2K CRM software using RIVA's middleware service.
VAI will allow customers multiple options to access their S2K Enterprise infrastructure through S2K Smart Center including On Premise; Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS); and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).
In addition, S2K Smart Center was designed to help mobile workers double their productivity. S2K Smart Center was built on standards-based technologies such as HTML5 and AJAX, which allows web apps to run on any platform with a modern, standards-compliant browser. And, S2K Smart Center's portal screens have a responsive design that will automatically resize to the specific device, whether it's a desktop, laptop, tablet or any mobile device.
"S2K Smart Center will give midmarket ERP organizations a major step forward by dramatically improving productivity, collaboration and efficiencies across their organizations," said VAI vice president of Sales and Marketing, Joe Scioscia. "VAI has seamlessly blended proven ERP and business applications with modern social tools, making it as easy for users to interact with co-workers and business associates worldwide as it is to use the application itself. By socializing the enterprise in the most affordable way possible, we are giving midmarket ERP customers an unprecedented opportunity to produce immediate, measurable improvements in productivity, return-on-investment and performance while lifting employee morale and satisfaction. This is a win/win all around."
