Where it all Began
ADI – is an acronym for Automated Data Instruments Corp.
Started in 1998, ADI built the United States first non- proprietary Computerized Cash Register System and has continued to evolve since then, most recently developing and distributing its own Pomodo brand of cloud based ERP and POS software for businesses.
What's in a Name?
Pomodo is the brand name for ADI’s cloud based ERP software. The Founder Stephen M Thompson was inspired by The Pomodoro Technique, a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980’s, and used in software development. The technique uses a timer to break down periods of work into 25 minute intervals, called Pomodori (from the Italian word for tomato), separated by short breaks. The Pomodoro Technique is named after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer that was first used by Cirillo when he was a university student.
