New Generation Software, Inc. (NGS) today announced the release of NGS Financial Performance for S2K, a new financial reporting and analytics solution for companies running the Vormittag Associates, Inc. (VAI) S2K General Ledger system on the IBM i (AS/400).

NGS Financial Performance for S2K will run on IBM System i and Power Systems using V5R1, V5R2, V5R3, V5R4, and 6.1 of the operating system.
