DDI System Featured in Wholesale & Distribution International Magazine

By Lauren Verner on 5/3/16 12:02 PM

DDI System doesn’t approach ERP software from an abstract perspective – it was founded with a strong understanding of the day-to-day ins and outs of the distribution world. That understanding is key to the success of the company’s Inform ERP platform. President Adam Waller is the source of much of that understanding, having learned distribution while working for his grandfather’s distribution company, which continues to serve the plumbing and HVAC market to this day.

Waller started writing software for the company in the 1980s, and in 1994 he founded DDI System to provide distributors with effective ERP software solutions. 

Today, DDI System’s Inform ERP distribution software platform is used by more than 750 distributors in markets such as electrical and lighting, PHCP and HVAC, jansan, paper and packaging, and industrial and safety products. In 2014, DDI System acquired the software division of leading HVAC distributor and customer Johnstone Supply, which gave DDI System the capability to enhance its Inform ERP platform to become more sophisticated and capable of serving larger, multi-location HVAC distributors.
