Deacom, Inc. produces an ERP software (DEACOM) for mid-to-large sized batch process manufacturing companies.

History[edit]

In 1995, Jay T. Deakins, founder and President,[1] formed Deacom in his mother-in-law's basement.[3] In 1999, Deacom relocated to the West Valley Business Center in Wayne, Pennsylvania.[citation needed] In 2007 Deacom tripled its office space to accommodate new and anticipated sales and technical staff, which numbered 14 in 2007, up from 7 in 2005.[3] As of 2015, the staff had grown to 75 and opened a new headquarters in Chesterbrook, Pa.[4]

Business model[edit]

Deacom was founded in order to fill a gap in the ERP marketplace. ERP systems have traditionally been built using a base accounting package and numerous other bolt-on software systems in order to fulfill a manufacturer's typical functionality needs. This traditional model tends to be inherently more complex, and more difficult to upgrade due to all of the different pieces of software. Because of this, these traditional systems are less likely to evolve over time, which can be a hindrance to growing manufacturing businesses. Deacom founder Jay Deakins designed DEACOM ERP to eliminate the unnecessary complexity of this traditional model. DEACOM’s large functional foundation is built specifically for manufacturers and distributors and within one code set. The capabilities required by the company’s manufacturing and distribution customers is built into the core system to significantly limit the dependencies on outside software systems. Because of this flexible model, DEACOM is more easily adaptable to changing customer needs, and simpler for customers to use and maintain. Additionally, Deacom offers a guaranteed fixed price implementation that ensures a predictable total cost of ownership. Customers know exactly what the cost of the system will be up front. Deacom's competitor's include SAP AG, Oracle Corporation and Microsoft.[3]
