use information systems to help them enrich customer service, reduce costs,
and improve the quality of their decision making. VAI answers the call with

suggested purchasing recommendations. System 2000's integrated Warehouse
Management application allows distributors to streamline business operations
and better serve their customers. Sharing information across your entire
organization is also faster and easier. With System 2000's Job Scheduler,
users can pre-set and customize reports to run automatically and deliver

create manufacturing orders which will be scheduled in the CRP module, and
reported against in shop floor control, and integrated quality control
allows you to track and record any quality data that you require.  In
