The culture

Our history

Decades of proven success.

Conveyorware Business Distribution Software was founded in 1974, and has since flourished into the premier business management software for hundreds of companies. Conveyorware was built as a warehouse management system in order to run CEO, Fred Ferber's, warehousing company - Ferber Midwest. After having extreme success and receiving encouraging feedback from the Ferber Warehousing clients Mr. Ferber decided to perfect the software's functionality and license it independently.

Mr. Ferber implemented this newfound business management software into the hundred million dollar company House of Imports where this major client attracted attention from clients across the country. Conveyorware was then adopted by Homedics Inc., Sacs of Life, and many others and is now the foundation of many innovative companies. 

Conveyorware has distributed more than 3,000  different products to 25,000 North American retailers for more than 20 years. Conveyorware now serves as the backbone of Ferber Warehousing and Fulfillment, which handles inventories for more than 1,100 diverse companies. Ferber clients benefit from having access to Conveyorware software. 


Service our Clients are Proud to Have.

The Conveyorware interview.

Conveyorware strives to be the premiere software solution. While on the Kathy Ireland Show CEO, Fred Ferber, explains what separates Conveyorware's technology -

"It creates tremendous savings for clients because usually what they do is work all day and then all evening they type and prepare spreadsheets for the next day. Because our software goes all the way to the end these people are so appreciative - they suddenly learn that they have got time to grow their business."
