Vigon Implements Innovative New Accounting Software
During the month of October, our Accounting Team commenced using an automated Accounts Payable software.

The software employs special technology that automatically captures the critical information on supplier invoices and transfers it directly into our ERP system; thus eliminating what is normally a manual entry.

This technology boosts the efficiency of the accounts payable team and allows them to dedicate their time to other important tasks.

At Vigon, we are always exploring ways we can use technology to maximize the productivity of our teams.
RECENT NEWS
Improvements to Barcode Labeling System
This month, Vigon started adding barcode labels to every single pallet in the warehouse.

Previously, each individual container of product on pallets included labels. Thus, as materials were moved around facilities, each container's barcode needed to be rescanned.

This simplified process has saved our distribution team a great deal of time over the past month and helps them to get orders out quicker.
New Update to CMMS Launched
Recently, our IT, Engineering, and Production Teams worked together to update our CMMS (Computerized Maintenance
Management System).

During this project, Vigon's team worked to maximize the tracking of all assets and equipment that we use. Additionally, this update helps our team to easily record and report important maintenance information about equipment.

Now, data such as service manuals, service contracts, and warranties can be scanned into the CMMS system and accessed by team members via iPads. This dramatically cuts down on Vigon's paper usage while making it easier to access information.

As always, we will continue to explore even more ways in which our CMMS system can maximize Vigon's overall productivity and organization!
TEAM SPOTLIGHT
Gabrielle Cray
HR Manager

Tell us a little bit about your background.
Growing up, I had plans of becoming a veterinarian, and even received my Bachelor’s in Pre-Med/Biology & an A.S. Chemical Technician degree from Kutztown University. Eventually, I grew fond of the H.R. field because I truly love helping people, and I enjoy the way it challenges me!

-What do you like best about your job?

I love the reward of helping my team members on a daily basis. I also look forward to making procedures as efficient as possible in my position. Being part of a company so open to process improvement is truly something amazing.

-What do you like to do in your spare time?
 
Now that our son is walking, we are starting to introduce him to the activities we love such as hiking, biking, skiing/snowboarding, dirt biking, and so much more. I am sure in no time he will be joining us in our love for motorcycles and mudding as well. We also hope to get back to fostering animals for a local shelter we have helped in the past.
