ACS was founded in 1971, by Electrical Engineer Donald D. Lacy and is classified as a private, veteran owned, small business. The company is located fifty miles north east of Columbus, Ohio. ACS is a veteran leader in the video and audio networking industry and manufactures video and audio switching and networking equipment.
In 1983, ACS designed, patented, and manufactured the LINK Video Network. The company markets directly to the end user and has participated extensively as a sub contractor in the government/military arena. The LINK System has become extremely popular with instructors and teachers throughout the education, commercial, government and military environments.
Each generation of LINK System is the result of feedback from computer instructors just like you. Two important requirements underlie every LINK System purchased:
As a result of this fundamental consideration, instructors using our systems continually tell us they experience a 20-35% increase in classroom efficiency. This is why a LINK System pays for itself in such a short period of time.
We sell direct. There is no middleman involved to mark up the price. You deal directly with people who understand classroom technologies, the needs of instructors, and the LINK Video System. You can request a literature packet describing the LINK System in great detail. Our knowledgeable sales staff will discuss with you which systems best meet your needs.

We have the ability to see exactly where all our PCs are - and with DNA pro-actively finding new devices on the network, it has been a real time saver.Dominic Parckar, Dawleys
We needed a way to effectively put information in front of our students and the LINK Projection System does that. Every student has a computer and the ability to broadcast directly to their screen instead of a projected image in the front of the room is awesome. For many students, having the information right in front of them is a much more effective tool than general classroom projection. It is also nice to have the ability to blank the computers so that students are not ‘surfing’ during instruction.Ms. Gordon, Watkins Memorial High School
Notify is an important tool in our emergency plan.Cotham School
DNA is so easy to use and helps us keep a watchful eye over students as they use computer equipment.Joanne Hughes, Cherry Fold Community Primary School

Manager is very easy to configure and use.Bradley Estate Agents
The LINK Systems are still going strong, and if asked, can highly recommend them. However, with our ever decreasing budgets, I doubt we'll be able to upgrade any time in the near future. The big problem with making a good product: They last too darn long!Mr. Jung, San Mateo Adult School
Notify offers a cost-effective solution for broadcasting messages across your organization.Dominic Magro, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust

We have been using Manager for years. It allows us to remote onto our clients computers with ease.Bloor Homes
Yes all is well with the LINK System. It is the best teaching tool I have ever used. We have new SmartBoards in our classrooms but one of my students just yesterday said they prefer the LINK System for my demonstrations. I agree.Mr. Baierwalter, Bluffton H.S.
ACS has a tremendous customer service record and provides top of the line products for your classroom.Mr. Smilonich, Snazzo Productions
Manager is a fantastic solution because it has very minimal demand of system resources and extreme flexibility.Insuring America
Due to there being many automated processes within DNA, it really has saved the IT team a lot of time from device discovery to application monitoring and enterprise reporting, it has really improved our performance.Dermont Woods, Cork National Roads Office
DNA has solved all of our needs and has even more functionality than we expected.UNICEF
DNA has been instrumental in terms of network and asset management here at Marmalade.Alex Smith, Marmalade
We were lacking the ability to monitor our student(s) while on desktops. Teacher(s) would have to walk around the classroom to keep our student(s) on task. It was difficult for a teacher to tell whether a student was following along with class work or surfing the internet and visiting non-related school approved websites. With the implementation of SoftLINK our teacher(s) can now monitor all student workstations from their desktop. The content filtering has been awesome for us. The student(s) are definitely kept on task. Our teachers get a lot of use out of SoftLINK's other features also. I would say Applied Computer System's service and technical support would definitely be a 10+.Mr. Fallis, Crow Creek Tribal Schools
Fantastic products that enhances productivity and supports safeguarding in our environment.Andrew Gibson, Bradfield School
A really useful tool that allows us to remotely support users from all over the world, from anywhere in the world.Arcadia Petroleum
