For two decades, Enterprise Database Corporation (EDC) has been revolutionizing the way that companies do business. We are best known in the moving and storage industry for developing the leading worldwide, independent move management and communication network for moving companies, agents, suppliers and shippers, and for delivering software solutions that seamlessly manage every detail of commercial, residential and government moves.
The 57th Annual IAM Annual Meeting & Expo was held on October 3-6, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. One of the largest events in the moving & storage industry, the event attracts professionals from throughout the country and, among those exhibiting was Enterprise Database Corporation (EDC).
EDC is a leader in software that serves the moving & storage industry, from the communication network GOgistiX® to mobile apps like EDC-MoveStar® Mobile and EDC-AgentLink®. Since 2003, EDC has pioneered technology that has transformed the industry, simplified work processes and created a more cohesive process for movers.
“We are proud to serve the moving industry, and to sponsor at the IAM Annual Meeting”, says Diana Corona, President of EDC. “Creating solutions that work in DOD, commercial and COD moves – while being flexible enough to manage all of each move’s unknowns – is a challenge we eagerly accept.”
EDC did far more than exhibit at this year’s expo. Partnering with Move for Hunger and IAM Here 2 Help, EDC sponsored the first annual Pack-A-Palooza, a packing and loading competition that attendees can enter to see if they’ve still got “what it takes” to be an expert mover. The competition was judged and measured by using a custom app that EDC developed for the event, and proceeds from the competition went to benefit Move for Hunger and IAM Here to Help.
For the second year in a row, Enterprise Database Corporation (EDC) is partnering with Move for Hunger. This non-profit organization works with relocation companies to collect non-perishable food items and deliver them to food banks across North America.
In addition to being a Move for Hunger Patron Partner, EDC is assisting through its software, the TrakGX™ shipper mobile application. Using the app, shippers can access information on the Move for Hunger organization and its efforts and can notify moving companies, before the pickup date, that they have food items available for donation. The moving companies track and report on the food items directly from EDC-MoveStar®.
“So much unnecessary food waste comes from situations where people move and simply don’t want to bring food with them,” says Diana Corona, President of EDC. “We hope that integrating a feature into our software will simplify the process of getting this food into the right hands, making food donations more frequent.”
On February 28, 2019 we turned 18 years old! We are growing up but remain young at heart! Thank you to all EDC customers, employees, partners and vendors for 18 years of amazing innovation, partnerships, and friendships!
We are proud to announce the launch of our new Customer Service Portal.

On Tuesday, August 23, 2005 Enterprise Database Corporation was featured in the business section of the Washington Post. The article is as follows:
By Jenalia Moreno Washington Post Staff Writer.
Tuesday, August 23, 2005; The technology company where H. Richard Corona worked went bust in 2001, so he headed for his basement.
That’s where the Woodbridge resident and his wife, Diana Corona, started Enterprise Database Corp., which helps businesses by creating Web sites, designing software and managing networks.
Today, Enterprise Database Corp. employs nine full-time and eight part-time workers and three more jobs are being added, making it another example of the kind of small businesses that are contributing to Prince William County’s growth.
In December, Prince William ranked as the sixth fastest-growing county in the nation in terms of percentage increase in jobs, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, while Loudoun County was a notch above at fifth place. Prince William was home to 61,000 businesses employing 99,000 workers as of December 2004, a 6.6 percent employment gain compared with December 2003, the labor department reported last month.
While the FBI and Eli Lilly and Co. will employ more than 300 workers each after their facilities open inside the Innovation@Prince William business park in a few years, most of the job growth has been fueled by small companies.
“Small businesses are really a key component to our county’s growth,” said Martin J. Briley, the county’s director of economic development. The region’s well-educated and highly trained workforce, he said, has attracted government contractors and technology companies.
His office has the job of persuading big multinational corporations such as Eli Lilly to expand in the county and of holding the hand of small companies like Enterprise Database Corp.
In 2003, Corona’s basement business was expanding, and he needed to hire his first employees. It was time to find an office. He searched the region carefully. Rent and services were too expensive in Fairfax. Loudoun was too far from his home. Prince William had good Internet connectivity and good prices. It was just right, he found.
Unsure of how to take those first steps, he turned to the county for help.
“Coming out of the basement is a scary proposition,” said Corona, whose client list primarily includes small businesses in Maryland, Virginia and the District.
County economic development officials drove him to various office buildings, talked to landlords on his behalf and helped with permits.
Average wages have been somewhat low in Prince William, driven down by a number of part-time and retail jobs, but Linda D. Decker, president and chief executive of the Flory Small Business Center Inc. in Prince William, said she expects that to change.
“You have a highly educated, competent workforce and now I believe they’re making demands,” Decker said.
Corona finds that technology employees in Prince William don’t earn any less than they would in the District and he has to compete with the government for the best workers.
He said many of his employees live in the area and choose to work for him to avoid the “torture drive” on Interstates 66 and 95.
“We’ve been able to get more people because it’s a reverse commute,” Corona said.
His company is growing because it targets a niche market of small businesses that need technology services but can’t afford a full-time information technology employee, he said. Because he offers Spanish-language service, he can also cater to the fast-growing Hispanic-owned business market.
But to offer affordable services to these small companies and earn a profit, he needs to have plenty of customers. And so one of his new employees will be a salesperson.
