Big News From IDSTC!
Since 2001 we have been expanding the features and functionality of our original platform, the ES100. IDSTC was one of the first to develop a fully web based Software as a Service (SaaS) application for the direct selling industry... or for any industry. Those were the early days and over the past decade and a half, the ES100 became the most feature rich application in our industry.
Over the past 3 years, we have been working our tails off building a brand new platform to replace the ES100. Using the latest technologies and software development best practices, we have been building the world's most advanced direct selling platform.
IDSTC has discontinued sales of the ES100 and is now exclusively selling the beta version of our new platform, AcutaBeta. Our next generation application is designed to give developers the control and freedom to expand functionality while at the same time providing extensive features to run even the most sophisticated operations without any development being necessary. Finally an application your IT staff will love and so will your operations and management teams.
Enterprise Cloud: The AcutaBeta Platform is a true cloud application built on the Microsoft Azure Enterprise Cloud environment. Some key benefits of this are:
Best in class Platform as a Service infrastructure with remarkable service offerings that only a few years ago would cost seven figures to implement. This is not a local data center or first generation cloud hosting solution. This is the most advanced and highest rated technological solution available to any enterprise of any size anywhere in the world.
Massive Scalability; there are no technical constraints or time delays to deploy unlimited resources for temporary needs such as a flash sale or permanent operations as your business grows.
Unmatched security; Microsoft offers the most comprehensive set of certifications and attestations of any cloud service provider. This combined with comprehensive security management features and controls within AcutaBeta provides the most secure platform.
Mobile First Philosophy: The entire application is mobile friendly, including the corporate operations portal. This includes consultant portal, customer portal and of course websites, too!
WordPress Global Standard: We've established a WordPress standard for our websites and engineered and true WordPress plugin for shopping and joining. AcutaBeta provides complete freedom to build and maintain your own website and even shopping cart. Of course in addition to independence we still offer full-service website design and development services.
Embedded Business Intelligence: A premier Business Intelligence and Analytics report writing system is natively embedded in the AcutaBeta application. Unlock your data with unlimited access and freedom to write reports and analyze data.
Extensive API Expandability: For clients with integration needs we have built AcutaBeta on a comprehensive API Framework. We consume our own APIs for our frontend user interface applications. These same APIs are exposed for companies that want to integrate third party applications or build their own. This includes: Mobile applications, back office providers, consultant tools, shipping & fulfillment, ERP, accounting... you name it, it can be integrated with AcutaBeta.
Click-Not-Code Configurability: We've engineered an application that combines unparalleled functionality and features with universal configurability. With AcutaBeta many of the advanced needs that previously required custom programming now can be implemented and tested with a couple clicks of the mouse.
Party Plan Features: Robust management features give the home office super flexibility to manage, pricing, incentives, promotions, and party communications. Allow consultants and customers to host parties, share parties on social media and use advanced party tools to manage all events easily and efficiently.

Communications Elevated: A lot more flexibility for autoresponse emails, broadcast emails and integration for text notifications or mobile notifications.
Global Native: Unlike the ES100 which was built as a domestic application in the United States with modifications to support translations and multicurrency, AcutaBeta is a bona fide global native platform designed for your business in any home country and also multinational businesses.
Your products, customer experience, consultant experience and corporate user experience can be controlled by country settings.
Advanced country configurability for inventory, currency, taxes, languages, time and date, field formatting, portal content, menu options, etc.
Each field in the application can be translated, this includes the corporate, consultant and customer portals.

Intuitive Design: User experience is elegant, flexible and configurable. Dashboard reporting unique to individual users. Navigation and workflow that makes sense of features that bear inherent complexity. Online and inline help throughout application
Increase acquisition and retention.
Show the world your authentic brand culture.
Maximize the strengths of social media: Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Snapchat.
The social algorithms penalize promotional posts. Penalized posts will have limited visibility by your followers. You need to tell authentic user generated stories.
A [newkleus] platform provides you a branded, interactive digital destination for your field and customers.
Your brand. Your community. Your user data. Your user generated video content.
- Authentic user generated content (UGC) is FREE (leverage your field and capture it all)
- Authentic user generated content is the most valuable asset for increasing acquisition
- Shareable UGC via text, via email and to social media is essential and the way people communicate today
- Creating a front-office content platform is more efficient (people don't like logging into a back office, navigating to a directory and reading a branded PDF...by the way, Millennials will not do this)
Keep it simple. Leverage technology. Engage your community. Grow your business.
