Enablement prerequisites

Before initiating a connection between your Turvo tenant and DAT, you must first create a DAT account. Email DAT to set up an account: techsupportteamleads@dat.com. Make sure to obtain the following information to enable the integration: 

  • Your company name
  • Your company's main contact name and phone number
  • Any unique identifier for your company (such as MC #, Address, etc)
  • Interface: Turvo Posting API
    Important note: Make sure that you request the API credentials in REST format and not SOAP.
  • All users that you want to be able to post from Turvo

Store these credentials in a safe place. You will need to enter them into Turvo in the following steps.
