Operations at a Glance
Growth as a manufacturer made manual inventory tracking of assemblies extremely time-consuming.

A substantial reduction from 2 1/2 days to just 30 minutes in time spent with the monthly closing process for inventory.
DSX Access Systems’ reliable and high-quality access control and security products are protecting people all over the world.
“DSX Access Systems was formed when the now-owners of the company were not happy with some of the manufacturers out there in regards to electronic security so they started designing their own systems and it just took off from there. Now we sell access control equipment worldwide,” said controller, Marty Monroe.
The company’s success is fueled by their commitment to providing superior product for the industry starting in 1984 when the company began.
“The systems that were available back then were just not cutting it in regards to both the hardware side and the software side. There were feature sets that the owners more or less required that just weren’t out there so they designed their own hardware with those feature subsets around it and started writing their own software interface to communicate to it.”
By designing their software and hardware in-house, DSX Access Systems is able to place the utmost precision on their engineering and manufacturing processes.
“We listen to what the industry says with regards to making the appropriate changes to our hardware and software as the market progresses. If we hear enough demand for this or that, we explore it, and a lot of times we create a solution for that.”
A growing, adapting business meant the need for a solution that could adapt as well…
The inventory solution that the company had previously been using was “very time-consuming”, even for basic functions such as inventory management. DSX Access Systems needed a solution that would accommodate their “tremendous” growth as a manufacturer.
DSX Access Systems chose Acctivate due to its ability to integrate with their preferred accounting system. Once the company began using Acctivate, they began to see how such a sophisticated, powerful system was strikingly easy to use and user-friendly.
Acctivate’s inventory management features — in combination with other workflow process features — has given DSX Access Systems full reign on their inventory control.
