TEMPLE, Texas, February 23, 2017 – PDI, the leading provider of enterprise-class software solutions
to the convenience retail and wholesale petroleum industries, today announced a record year of
growth in 2016. A combination of new software customers, strategic acquisitions, and add-on product
adoption among its existing customer base resulted in the company’s 32 percent year-over-year
PDI experienced a banner year for new customers, becoming the ERP software provider of choice for
24 convenience retailing and petroleum marketing companies. The year-end total, which was a 53
percent increase over the previous year, boosted the percentage of PDI customers on CSP’s 2016
Convenience Top 101 list to 65 percent.
The company’s laser-focused approach to serving and delivering value for its customers resulted in
the expansion—and subsequent increase in customer adoption—of several products and services.
Among them were PDI’s add-on software modules, PDI/Lottery and PDI/Labor Scheduler, which
gained 55 new customers. In a year of notable acquisitions, the software technology veteran also
bolstered its wholesale petroleum software portfolio by acquiring the Florida-based, fuel supply chain
and logistics company, Intellifuel.
As PDI positions itself for international growth, it announced two additions to its executive team.
Douglas Henderson joins the team as senior vice president of global sales, and Bo Harvey will assume
the role of senior vice president and general manager of North American Operations.
Henderson brings with him over 20 years of experience building strong customer relationships in
the convenience retail segment. Most recently he served as the executive vice president of sales for
Kalibrate. Prior to Kalibrate, Henderson held increasingly responsible positions with NCR. Henderson’s
experience serving customers on six continents is key as PDI broadens its geographic reach.
Harvey—a 16-year PDI veteran—has served in numerous capacities at the company, including
vice president of professional services. In his new role, he will oversee the day-to-day management
and operation of the company’s North American business, including the implementation of all
software solutions, the ongoing support and maintenance of those solutions, as well as the delivery
of all managed services to the customer base in North America. He has ultimate ownership of the
satisfaction of the customers in North America.
PDI’s CEO Jimmy Frangis had this to say about PDI’s recent news: “2016 was a momentous year
in the evolution of PDI, with a record year in terms of revenue growth and new customer additions.
We also partnered with TA Associates, a $24 billion global growth private equity firm with extensive
experience supporting and scaling over 200 software companies, to accelerate PDI’s growth and
market leadership. We completed three strategic acquisitions that strengthen and broaden PDI’s
product and market footprint. Finally, we augmented the executive leadership team to support our
ambitious growth objectives. Exciting opportunities are ahead of PDI, and I am fully confident our
team will be able to seize them. As always, our highest priority is serving our customers. They are, and
will continue to be, the cornerstone of our success, and we appreciate and value their partnership.”
