Bronx Based Distributor Achieves Success

Greenhill Industrial Supply built its business by providing friendly, dependable service to a local customer base in Bronx, NY. Since the 1930’s, Greenhill has evolved into a distributor of hand and power tools, fasteners, hardware and other building and maintenance supplies to contractors, institutions, hospitals and other businesses in the boroughs of New York.

"Our switch to DDI System’s distribution-centric software made us more efficient."

After Lenny Gamss bought the business in 1987, he began introducing new technologies to help the company operate more efficiently. In 2000, he decided they had outgrown his home-grown computer system and needed a more sophisticated and comprehensive business solution.

Gamss went in search of a software system that would combine their inventory, purchasing, customer and sales history, receivables and other data critical to running a distribution company. He chose DDI System and realized immediate efficiencies and process improvements.

“Our switch to DDI System’s distribution-centric software made us more efficient. Enhanced data management and inventory control, automated credit card processing and improved customer service are just some of the ways technology benefits our company,” said Lenny Gamss. Today, Lenny has upgraded his company once again to DDI’s window-based Inform distribution software. Together with his son, Jeff, they are taking advantage of the latest in technology and the integrated innovations that DDI offers on a continued basis.
