Mission: Rule One: When dealing with a customer, a supplier, or an employee, do what is "right" in each situation.
VIP was founded in 1973 as a data collection and processing company. VIP keyed clients’ sales from paper invoices into a computer and provided clients with summarized sales reports. As computers became more affordable to individual businesses, VIP expanded its own in-house software and sold the product as the VIP Route Accounting System.
As a specialist in the beverage industry, VIP has developed a complete software package that is second to none in meeting the specific needs of beverage distributors/bottlers. VIP has developed solutions for all three tiers of the beverage industry. In 2002, VIP started developing software solutions for suppliers. VIP currently collects data and provides solutions for over 100 suppliers.
Over the years, VIP’s technological and business solutions for beverage distributors expanded to include: a complete financials package; PDA handhelds and other mobile devices for sales reps, drivers, and merchandisers; innovative applications for Warehouse Management Systems such as automated truck loading, voice picking, and task management; iDIG sales analysis tools; electronic report capture, email, and retrieval; and Cloud Solution.
Supplier Services have grown to include data collection, data hosting, data delivery, sales reports tool, product finder, data cleansing, and price collections for Wal-Mart VMP.
Key events in VIP's history include:
VIP is a Solutions Provider for IBM. When choosing solutions providers, IBM selects software companies with excellent products and fine reputations. We are proud of this affiliation with IBM and consider it a mark of distinction.
For you, there are many advantages in using IBM hardware. You get the best equipment in the industry and you are guaranteed first-rate service. Because we work with a limited number of hardware products, VIP employees know them well and make sure you take advantage of all of their built-in features.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vermont Information Processing.
Interview with 4~ managers after taking an IQ/pattern matching test. Apparently I did well. Standard interview with a mix of technical questions on how I would approach different situations. Whiteboard session with surprisingly basic questions.
Also took a drug screening test, as is common.
