The DC-301 is the next generation of DirectConnect. The DC-301 is the reliable, fast and secure way for retailers to connect their POS systems to their back-office systems without the need for a computer.
Computers are multi-use as well as multi-purpose machines and, in a retail environment, are likely to be used by many employees during the day which can increase the vulnerability and threats to your data and systems. The DC-301 has no active users and its single purpose is to provide a secure connection so your encrypted data can be transferred between your front-end and back-end retail systems. This can reduce overall data transfer time by as much as 37%, transferring all the data from a shift report in under 40 seconds.
This next generation of DirectConnect comes equipped with a back-up, Internet (Ethernet), ATG, POS, EXT and serial ports so you can automatically collect sales data, price book changes, inventory data and transfer it securely to your back-office system. Any approved administrative updates from your back-office system can also be sent automatically to your cash register. Shift reports are also encrypted and backed-up on the DC-301 so you can easily recover shift data should your POS system malfunction.
