Old Dominion Data Systems corporate objective is to be the leading provider of software and management support systems for flooring distribution. Solutions are designed to provide the end user with the ability to access computer data without the need for an in-house programming staff. Industry standard products and protocols such as SCO Unix™, Hewlett Packard™, Microsoft Office™, Intel™ and TCP/IP provide the best in open architecture price, performance and productivity in over 60 distributor locations.
MERLIN - Maxi Extended, Relationally Linked Information Network - provides the ability to link the Maxi 2000 informational computer directly to the power and performance of Windows™ based computing. MERLIN is a predefined set of charts, graphs, queries and reports that allows management to quickly analyze information in as much or little detail as they see fit. Merlin provides the flexibility to "warehouse" and access synchronized data without impacting the integrity or performance of operational files. A "dictionary" of files and fields of information gives users the ability to gather and manipulate data using tools provided by ODDS and third party vendors.

Perhaps the greatest service Old Dominion provides their client is as a clearinghouse for new technology. It is virtually impossible for any business to stay current with the ongoing deluge of new products and services. By moving to an Open Architecture hardware and software platform, your firm has the opportunity to connect to a wide range of third party products. When necessary, ODDS must be able to assist you with the use of these products. Accordingly ODDS provides a wide range of support and educational services well beyond MAXI support.
