Simplify Data Transmission

iDT is an advanced option for securely sending data files to MSA. This file transmission process will save money (no more disks or tapes and no more shipping costs), save time (just a few mouse clicks to transfer the file), increase security (advanced encryption technology), and a possibility of more client program dollars for you if processing timeliness is a prerequisite.

Management Science Associates, Inc., (MSA) has been processing data for various cigarettes, smokeless and confectionery reseller and retailer programs since 1994. In 1998, MSA developed an internet Data Transfer product, called iDT. Retailers, wholesalers, and distributors can do away with diskettes, cartridges and next-day mail service by using iDT for their electronic data transmission.

A closer look at iDT

Simplify Program Administration

iDT is an easy-to-use program enabling the user to send files from their PC to MSA. A technical alternative to tapes and overnight mail, iDT verifies that the files are complete and meet the correct standards for transmission. You will receive a complete audit trail of all transmissions initiated by the software for record-keeping purposes.

Other iDT features include:
  • an auto-send option (sending all files in the load directory)
  • save file (saving an exact copy of each file transmission)
  • full security (user name and password as well as powerful encryption technology)
