SaaS Keeps Smaller Companies Competitive

Distribution management software is a driving force for wholesale businesses in any industry. Staying on the cutting edge of innovative and integrated features in distribution software can be costly, which is a particular challenge for small to mid-sized companies. DDI System, Sandy Hook, Conn., is looking to give smaller distributors the benefit of a fully integrated ERP system at an affordable price with the launch of its “Inform” software as a service (SaaS) offering.

The hosted solution provides cutting edge technology, flexibility, and scalability without the upfront capital investment and ongoing hardware costs, the company says. This alternative to an in-house server set-up solution allows smaller distributors to take advantage of the tools and techniques larger companies are succeeding with.
