CORRECTING AND REPLACING GYM SOURCE TO STREAMLINE BUSINESS PROCESSES WITH VAI’S INTEGRATED ERP SOLUTION

Distributor of Residential and Commercial Fitness Equipment Selects VAI’s S2K Software to Improve Efficiencies, Reduce Costs, and Grow Business

VAI, a leading ERP software developer, announced that Gym Source, a distributor of residential and commercial fitness equipment, will streamline its operations and enhance customer service with the selection of VAI’s S2K 6.0 ERP software solution. Fueled by company and revenue growth, Gym Source needed to upgrade its ERP system and selected VAI’s end-to-end solution to automate workflow, enhance productivity, and address business imperatives in real-time.

With 35 stores and six distribution centers located throughout the East Coast of the U.S., Gym Source outgrew its legacy system that required manual data-entry and processing. VAI S2K will help Gym Source streamline distribution operations by automating processing and enabling employees to switch focus from the mundane tasks of gathering and organizing data to value-added responsibilities like evaluating data analytics to optimize business operations. While the old system would frequently run report glitches and errors which required manual adjustments, VAI’s S2K software will automate Gym Source’s daily reporting needs and distribute at the specified times and intervals throughout the course of their business cycles.

“As our business continues to grow, I speak for every employee when I say we made the right decision in upgrading to VAI’s end-to-end solution,” said Joseph Vazzano, CFO of Gym Source. “VAI has provided excellent customer service from the start, having spent time interviewing our employees to learn the ins and outs of our workflow and analyze how we can optimize the solution to meet our needs. VAI’s genuine investment in our success really stood out during the selection process and we’re grateful for their hands-on approach as we lead up to implementation.”

A key driver for Gym Source in selecting VAI’s solution was S2K 6.0’s integrated applications, including Financial Management, Distribution Management, Warehouse Management, Customer Relationship Management, and more that provide end-to-end capabilities rather than having to buy and implement bolt-on applications separately. Additionally, VAI’s unique unlimited user license offering will allow any employee to access the system at any time, without being limited to specific users one at a time.

“Accurate data processing and reporting is critical for supply chain operations, but it’s only possible to do so efficiently with a fully integrated solution,” said Joe Scioscia, VP of Sales at VAI. “We’ve been working closely with Gym Source to identify their pain points with the old system, and we’re confident that with VAI, they will achieve greater efficiency, streamline business processes, and ultimately enhance customer service.”
