March 12, 2013 Alex Woodie
Monk Office Group, the biggest office supply company in British Columbia, has adopted the latest release of VAI‘s IBM i-based ERP system, called S2K, the software company announced recently.
Over the last 50 years, Monk Office has expanded to become a veritable office giant on the West Coast of Canada, particularly on Vancouver Island, where Monk sells everything from commercial stationary to office furniture out of a network of 10 retail stores stocked from three distribution centers.
The company first adopted S2K in 2005, and today, the company uses several S2K components to streamline various business functions, including ecommerce, point of sale, warehouse management, purchasing, and customer ordering.
More recently, the company upgraded to the latest release of VAI’s flagship, S2K 5.0. According to Monk IS director Andrew Coss, S2K helps the company to adapt to changes within the industry. “S2K is the all encompassing solution we need to work seamlessly within our infrastructure,” he says in a press release. “VAI and its S2K Solutions expand with Monk Office as our business continues to grow.”
