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.
