DDI System Announces New Partnership with Horizon Buying Group

Sarasota, FL – DDI System partners with Horizon Buying Group and offers members struggling with existing technology a software option built to drive success for Food Service Equipment Dealer/Distributors.

Horizon Buying Group is a business support solution for small to midsize independent Foodservice Equipment and Supply Dealers. They unite Dealer Members from across the country, creating a team that is committed to one another and the mutual success of all. Beyond competitive manufacturer programs, Horizon supports its members with an online database of essential information, ongoing Dealer sales training, printed flyers, flip-books, industry white papers, webinars, and a social media portfolio with content for Dealers and their customers.

DDI System’s Inform ERP is an all-in-one business software suite; built for Foodservice Equipment and Supply Dealer/Distributors, integrated with AutoQuotes, and designed to unify operations and deliver a seamless customer experience, both in-store, in the field, and online. Inform equips today’s FES Dealer/Distributors with leading-edge technology for efficient operations, loyalty-driving CRM, and fully integrated eCommerce.

“The fastest-growing trend in FES is Technology, and we must embrace that to remain relevant. Our partnership with DDI System is a phenomenal way for our members to save precious time while improving productivity, and increasing profits. Horizon is proud to bring better Programs, Support, and Services to all our members,” says Christine Richardson, President/Founder of Horizon Buying Group.

The addition of DDI to Horizon falls at an ideal time for FES dealers and distributors who seek some of the advanced capabilities of modern-day ERP technology. Inform ERP allows distributors to gain speed at the counter with single-screen order entry and quick-search capabilities, improve job tracking with quotes, orders, purchases reporting, and digital signatures, drill down into analytics with dashboards for sales, purchasing, inventory, and accounting, and elevate inventory management with advanced forecasting for seasonal, sporadic and recurring products.

Horizon Members can learn more about DDI System’s history, proven implementation success, and technology roadmap for growth at the upcoming virtual Horizon Member Conference March 31st - April 1st, 2022.

“At DDI, we know that as Dealer/Distributors grow, they often end up being held back by the software choices that used to work for them; we see it all the time,” says David Greene, Director of Business Development at DDI System.  “We are excited for the opportunity to work with Horizon Buying Group and their Members to remove these roadblocks and grow their respective businesses with technology built specifically for foodservice equipment and supply dealer/distributors.”
