Deacom was founded in a basement in 1995 with a vague dream to create an ERP software product that was powerful yet simple to use and would not require customization. The dream was software that would be easy to implement, would be simple to maintain, would have a predictable cost of ownership and would have the ability to adapt to rapidly changing customer needs. Over time that vague dream has evolved into an all-consuming passion and the basement has given way to Deacom’s corporate office where fifty people now work for Deacom to advance the dream of making complex issues simple.
We are the artisans of ERP, the scientists, the dreamers and the risk-takers. We are the confronters of complexity, always seeking the simplest truth. We are the oddballs, disenchanted by the traditional software model, willing to put it all on the line for what we believe is the right path, even if it’s not the traditional path. We are the producers of an ERP software like no other, built specifically for mid-tier process manufacturers looking for a better solution. An alternative for everyone who has lived to tell the tales of failed implementations, broken promises, and clunky software.
Fellow adventure seekers - take the path less traveled, embrace your desire to be different, and join us in our quest for simplicity. Because as crazy as it may sound, we have a deep and abiding passion for taking the complexity our clients deal with everyday and breaking it down to the simplest possible solution.
Go ahead, call us crazy. We’re used to it. – less
