Expanding solutions portfolio and global reach to support customers

PDI has also been on a rapid growth trajectory, expanding and strengthening its solution portfolio and global footprint over the last two years. The software company has acquired several U.S.- and internationally-based businesses, making significant investments to grow its retail and wholesale ERP, logistics management, fuel pricing, loyalty, insights and, most recently, payments capabilities to better serve its customers.

“Our mission is to help our customers thrive by building great solutions that make it easy for them to run every part of their organization, regardless of size or geographic location,” said Jimmy Frangis, CEO at PDI. “A big part of our strategy is being able to holistically serve the diverse needs of growing, global businesses like EG Group, and we look forward to helping them succeed for years to come.”
