Friday, March 30, 2012


Software innovator and industry veteran partner to deliver technology solutions

xTuple, the global leader in commercial open source business management software for growing companies, today announced its partnership with Distribution Technology Group (DTG) to provide modern enterprise technology products and services to the electrical distribution marketplace.

xTuple brings the worlds of open source and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) together to solve the unmet needs of small- to mid-sized companies. Designed specifically for distributors and manufacturers, xTuple’s fully-integrated end-to-end software system improves operational controls and, thus, profitability.

xTuple takes this opportunity to improve its presence in the electrical segment of the wholesale distribution market by partnering with industry veteran and DTG principal, Stacey Pandeloglou. Mr. Pandeloglou has provided technology solutions to distributors for over three decades during his career with Trade Service Systems (now part of Epicor), Descartes, ESC and other distribution-centric technology providers.

“xTuple's open source philosophy brings a powerful new option to distributors who have borne the brunt of consolidation in the ERP software industry," said Ned Lilly, President and CEO of xTuple. "When you own the source code, and you're a member of a huge global community of similar companies using the software, your relationship with the software vendor is substantially more in your favor. That's the world we created and have lived in for ten years."

Lilly also publishes a popular blog tracking vendor consolidation at www.ERPgraveyard.com.
