Seacore Seafood reels in
sustained growth using
S2K software from VAI

Seacore Seafood, a Canadian importer, distributor, and custom processor of fresh and frozen fish, seafood, and live lobsters, has achieved and sustained growth efficiently, due in part to the installation of S2K ERP software from VAI (Vormittag Associates Inc).
Recognized as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies, Seacore capitalized on its inward and outbound logistics to make its consumer brand, OceanPrime, available across North America while managing more than 5,000 fresh and frozen items in inventory.
From its 75,000-square-foot facility in the Toronto suburb of Vaughan, Ontario, Seacore houses its three divisions: OceanPrime, Fisherman’s Depot, and Seafood Depot. Its network of inward and outward logistics allows Seacore to buy seafood directly from the source—whether it’s trailer trucks picking up seafood in New England or Florida, flights arriving from the Philippines and Europe, or shipments from Asia and South America. This allows Seacore to provide a variety of fresh, high-quality seafood ranging from crab legs from Alaska to barrmundi from Australia and salmon from Ireland.
To keep up with the growing demand for its products, Seacore automated many of its core business functions, including inventory management, accounting, route management, order entry, logistics, and retail point-of-sale by installing VAI’s S2K software five years ago. Since then, Seacore has realized business benefits from this installation including:
•Improved accounts receivables management
•Faster customer delivery rates, reduced order picking time
•Streamlined fish-cutting process
•Up-to-the-minute consolidated financials
•Greater inventory accuracy
•Faster order entry
•Automatic real-time traceability
