WHO DO WE THINK WE ARE?
Dart is a new software platform designed to help print distributors optimize their routes, better manage their carriers and keep subscribers happy. It’s a fresh approach to a longstanding challenge: deliver as many print products as fast as you can, as accurately as you can, at the lowest operational cost. Dart is affordable and easy enough for smaller distributors to love, yet customizable and powerful enough to meet the requirements of even the largest, multi-pub, multi-region distribution enterprises. Dart software is the culmination of over 35 years’ experience in handling distribution for large and small print media companies. Dart is a service of PCF, one of the largest and most experienced print distribution providers in North America.
