A solution that integrates with your Route Accounting System, whichever one you use, which allows you to collaborate seamlessly with your customers. With iControl's help, distributors can accept electronic payments from retailers and restaurants without hassle, can share product catalog and pricebook updates, can receive and process purchase orders, and enjoy reporting capabilities unique to iControl.
Distributors who work with iControl tell us that what they love most about us is our eagerness to add value, reduce hassle and reduce costs. We take pride in the fact that hundreds of distributors choose to send iControl referrals, and that on a daily basis we activate new outlets that our distributors choose to register and service through us.
The benefits of a marketplace with more than one choice of provider are clear: iControl ensures a marketplace where ingenuity and creativity drive choice, and prices are fair.
Distributors who also trade in non-alcoholic beverages may invoice and be paid for those products through iControl.

Whether your priority is understanding how your brands are performing in the marketplace, or you are looking to get paid easily and on term from your distributors, iControl offers a comprehensive solution designed to help alcohol suppliers - from microbreweries, to independent wineries, to large international conglomerates - with the opportunity to take charge.
Too often, suppliers find themselves reacting to what's happening in the marketplace, versus shaping it. iControl is committed to working with progressive suppliers who embrace the three-tier system but are eager to add value and improve outcomes. From visibility to POS to streamlined financial transaction enablement, we are here to enable and enrich.
iControl proudly introduced OpBev to the marketplace in July 2020. OPBev, which stands for On-Premise Beverage, is the first ever nationally syndicated tracker of daily, on-premise POS sales for beverage alcohol from tens of thousands of on-premise outlets. OPBev adds intelligence and proprietary structure to restaurant and bar POS beverage alcohol transaction data. It's a simple, fast and accurate way for anyone interested in on-premise alcohol retailing to see what's going on and where.
