Ordering, credit requests, and product movement review are among an extensive list of functions supported by DAC Connect.
DAC Express is a cost-effective order entry app that runs on Apple and Windows devices to provide your customers and sales staff with an efficient method for ordering, processing credit requests, printing shelf labels and more. DAC Express supports customer specific pricing and order history along with inventory availability for items. A wide range of Bluetooth barcode scanners may be paired with DAC Express, or you may use an Apple device’s built-in camera for barcode scanning.
With this browser-based module, distributors can easily manage trade show activity at each booth, and quickly capture bookings for easy export to the DAC Prebook Order system.

Web Console enables distributors to develop strategic partnerships with retailers while reducing the time and costs associated with marketing products, ordering products, and providing value-added customer service. Using the Internet, retailers can access the distributor’s website to submit orders, manage retail pricing and product authorization lists, display and print account information and statements, print invoices, generate velocity reports, and much more.
With DAC Portal, retailers can easily create, review, and submit orders utilizing barcode scanning, templates, and order history. Using any smartphone, tablet, or laptop/ desktop computer, retailers have instant access to their distributor’s price book and billing system, providing real-time product information for accurate orders.
For a one-time charge, CDR will configure your IBM system to email documents directly from DAC applications. Documents that may be emailed include invoices, prebook notifications, price changes, and many more from a growing list of supported documents.
