The original premise of ERP systems was promising: Collect and consolidate data from across the company in a singular coherent system from which the entire company can be managed.
However, built on a foundation from the 1970s, ERPs today are outdated, clunky, bloated and slow. They take 6 to 24 months to implement and require expensive third-party implementation consultants. And after all that, 55-75% of ERP projects fail or don’t meet the intended objectives according to Gartner.
We’re here to change that.
Founded in 2021, Digit is building a radically new operating system - built on real-time data, intuitive and composable workflows and cross-departmental collaboration. Using Digit, manufacturers can automate manual processes and capture real-time data in a system that users love as much as the apps they use on their smartphone every day.
Our story. We're building the system we wish existed.
Hi, I'm Dan, CEO & Co-founder at Digit. The idea for Digit goes all the way back to 2014.
I spent 7 years consulting manufacturers all across the US, from 10 employees to 10,000. I spent days, nights, and weekends in the warehouse talking to frontline workers, managers, and owners. I observed every process, carefully listened to every challenge, and over time, learned how to help solve them effectively.
Because of that experience I was brought as a CEO to lead the turnaround of a struggling disc golf manufacturer in Dalton, Georgia that had lost money 7 out of 8 years. During my time we brought the company back to profitability, increased revenue 5x, and build a rockstar team in the process.
Throughout all these years as a consultant and as an operator, I noticed that manufacturers have no good software systems to choose from. Either they spend years implementing a bloated, legacy ERP everyone hates or they continue living in Excel hell.
I knew there was a better way. So I decided to start Digit and build the system I wish I had.
Our team. We've lived manufacturing and have successfully built high-growth startups.
