Kwik Goal Scores Big with VAI S2K Software

VAI (Vormittag Associates, Inc.), a leading provider of ERP software, today announced that Kwik Goal, the leading manufacturer in the U.S. of soccer goals and sporting field equipment, has automated and integrated operations across all key functions including accounting, inventory and warehouse management, order fulfillment and distribution. With VAI S2K Software, Kwik Goal has streamlined its inventory management processes while reducing costs, saving time and improving overall customer service.

Located in Quakertown, P.A., Kwik Goal distributes sporting equipment through a dealer network of more than 1,500 partners and ships domestically and internationally. As the nation’s leading supplier and manufacturer of soccer goals and sporting field equipment, Kwik Goal relies on various services and business processes to ensure the delivery of supplies and products. Many of the company’s line-of-business functions were conducted manually, which increased the potential for human error and use of too many employee resources. Kwik Goal sought an ERP system that was all inclusive and that would integrate seamlessly. In addition, it was critical that Kwik Goal implement a solution that would enable international shipping capabilities as well.

“We needed an ERP solution that seamlessly integrated within our existing IT infrastructure and enabled us to scale as our business grows,” said John Huhn, manager of information services, Kwik Goal. “With VAI’s S2K Software, we have a system that allows us to have complete visibility and control of our entire business processes including inventory, ecommerce, order tracking—which in turn, enables increased up-selling and overall sales. Our partnership with VAI has been a success from day one and we’re looking forward to further developing this relationship.”

To keep up with the growing demand for its products, Kwik Goal automated many of its core business functions, including inventory management, accounting, route management, order entry, logistics and ecommerce by installing VAI’s S2K Software. As a result, Kwik Goal has realized significant business benefits from this installation including:

  • Reduction of Human Error, Manual Processes and Employee Resources
  • Rapid Implementation
  • Seamless Integration of VAI S2K
  • More Efficient and Up-to-the-minute Inventory Management
  • Integration with Varsity Shipper for International Shipping

“Striking the perfect balance between achieving operational efficiency while maintaining customer satisfaction and reducing costs is an ongoing challenge facing all companies,” said Pete Zimmerman, manufacturing segment manager of VAI. “Kwik Goal is ahead of the curve in terms of implementing streamlined and cost-effective manufacturing processes. We are proud that Kwik Goal has been using S2K Software for nearly 20 years to grow its business, minimize costs and maximize profitability, and this is evidence of their commitment to customer excellence.”
