Our Story

Our story begins with our founder, John Whitfield, a visionary with a background in physics and mathematics. His career began as a 1st Lieutenant in the US Army in 1963, followed by five years as a Systems Engineer at IBM in Baltimore, and seven with Provident Savings Bank as VP of data processing.

In 1976, John took his wealth of software development experience and founded Carroll Data Processing. Since then, we have provided expert services to businesses of all sizes, supporting their accounting, inventory management, POS systems, and more. Notably, we introduced cutting-edge Point of Sale (POS) systems for Ritz Camera’s 1300+ stores and Duron Paint’s 230+ locations, enhancing their operations and efficiency.

Over the past 45+ years, our company has grown solely by word-of-mouth referrals and recommendations. In addition, two of John’s six adult children now work in the business – Laurie in accounting, and Lisa at the helm, driving our company to new heights.

Today, Carroll Data Processing continues to thrive, upholding our legacy of family, faith, and a steadfast commitment to excellence. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you and become a part of your success story.
