Our Story

The Origins of Deacom’s Unique ERP Approach

Deacom was founded by Jay Deakins in 1995 in the basement of his split-level home outside of Philadelphia. After owning a process manufacturing company, Jay saw an opportunity in the market for an ERP that could solve the unique challenges process manufacturers face. Jay built the DEACOM ERP platform from the ground up while balancing programming, support, implementation, and sales with family time.

25 years, 140 employees, and 225 customers later, Deacom remains a thriving business dedicated to the success of process manufacturers around the globe. Jay continues to be the Founder and CEO, working with the Deacom team members to push the company to new heights. Learn more +

If any one of these components is done in a separate system, manually or outside the system in Excel, then steps can be bypassed causing breaks in process control. You must bat a thousand, handling all cases in the system to guarantee Hyper-Tight Process Control. Learn more +
