DDI System announces new Strategic Business Partnership with the Association for High Technology Distribution (AHTD)

Sarasota, FL – February 16, 2022 – In a recent agreement, DDI System has partnered with the Association for High Technology Distribution (AHTD) to provide technology solutions for AHTD members.

For over 35 years, the Association for High Technology Distribution (AHTD) has worked to increase the productivity, profitability, and market share of their Business Solution Providers and Manufacturers. Through a wide spectrum of association programs and services, designed by and for members, AHTD is a valuable resource for member companies to achieve their goals. AHTD advances the high technology distribution industry by delivering tools, education, and unparalleled networking opportunities with leaders, peers, and partners that help members innovate, collaborate, and achieve their business goals faster. 

“AHTD’s Strategic Business Partners offer strategic products and services to the industrial automation distribution industry and show significant commitment to helping our members reach their goal of #doinghightechbetter,” says Leigha Schatzman, Executive Director of AHTD. “Our partnership with DDI System facilitates the creation of an exceptional online experience for customers of both our automation solutions provider and manufacturing members by offering a fully-integrated backend business solution and online eCommerce platform. We look forward to seeing what our members accomplish with the help of DDI System!”

DDI System’s Inform ERP is an all-in-one business software suite; built for Industrial & Safety distributors, designed to unify operations and deliver a seamless customer experience, both in-store, in the field, and online.  Inform is used by more than 1000 distribution companies nationwide and equips today’s AHTD member distributors with leading-edge technology for efficient operations, loyalty-driving CRM, and fully integrated eCommerce. 

“While DDI may be new to AHTD, our history of long-standing relationships with Industrial & Safety distributors includes clients like Jansen Ornamental, Western States Tool & Supply, Walker Industrial, and Sheinberg Tool Co.,” explains David Greene, Director of Business Development at DDI System. “We look forward to working with AHTD to enable their members to do high tech better.” 

AHTD member Walker Industrial implemented Inform ERP software back in 2007. “As our vendors have struggled with deliveries, DDI’s inventory management and advanced reporting features have enabled us to forecast our projected needs and ramp up inventory to serve our customers better,” says Adam Foley of Walker Industrial. 


To find out why Walker Industrial and so many Industrial & Safety distributors are choosing Inform ERP, please visit or call us at 877-599-4334 to schedule a personalized product tour with a DDI System Solution Specialist.
