Over One Million Products Downloaded by D -Tools Users in October

Users validate the power of the D-Tools Manufacturer Partner Program (MPP) by downloading over 1,250,000 product skus in their D-Tools programs.

CONCORD, CA - November 11th, 2003 - D -Tools announced today that users of their software downloaded over 1,250,000 manufacturer product data skus during the month of October.


"This number really illustrates the importance of the D -Tools Manufacturer Partner Program," said Ingo Schmoldt, Director of Manufacturer Partnerships. "When you think that it takes the average user 3 -5 minutes to create a product from scratch in our program, the time savings to the system integrators is absolutely staggering."

The Manufacturer Partner Program allows manufacturers to include their entire product lines in the D -Tools software. This data is downloaded for free by users of the D -Tools software. Manufacturer provided information helps cut down on errors in the data entry process, but can also help the manufacturer increase the sales of their own product. "We've picked up multiple dealers because of D -Tools," said Brent Howard, President of TruAudio Speakers, "They (dealers) told us to get on D -Tools and they would start carrying our products."

The D -Tools Manufacturer Partner Program starts at $1995 a year for a manufacturer and the resultant data is made available to the D -Tools users free of charge. For more information on the D -Tools Manufacturer Partner Program, visit http://www.d -tools.com/partner_signup.html or
