Powering Dealers for Decades

Frameworks ERP was developed by Sterland Computing of Australia. Originally founded in the 1800s as a lumber yard (Sterland Brothers Building Supply) Sterland has been serving dealers and builders for over a century. 

In the 1980s, Sterland wanted a specialized ERP that supported the unique processes around selling and managing building materials. They commissioned custom software that let them provide better service to more customers in less time. When other dealers began asking to purchase the ERP, Sterland Computing was born. 

Today, Sterland is the leading ERP provider to dealers in Australia and New Zealand with over 600 stores thriving on Frameworks. Now as part of the DMSi family, Frameworks benefits dealers on both sides of the Pacific.
