New Products for System Integrators Will Change The Way Homes Are Pre-Wired
CONCORD, CA - SEPTEMBER 1, 2006 - D -Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in system integration software, today announced that Xspot Products (www.xspotproducts.com) has joined the D -Tools Manufacturer Vantage Point (MVP) program. The reusable Xspot™ system enables A/V integrators to precisely and quickly locate pre -wire termination points after sheetrock has been hung in place. Xspot™ dramatically reduces labor costs by eliminating far less accurate devices such as wire toners and stud finders, while providing installers with the reassurance that their wires will be safe and sound, right where they left them.
"A partnership with D -Tools is an opportunity to help establish Xspot™ as the default pre -wire tool for all of the construction trades, forever changing the way homes are wired," stated Mark Sipe, founder and president of Xspot Products.
The D -Tools Manufacturer Vantage Point (MVP) program is designed to help provide system integrators with the most up -to -date product information to over 2,000 companies using D -Tools System Integrator software. D -Tools MVP members are dedicated to helping companies streamline the design process and making it easier for system integrators and installers to provide accurate proposals to their clients.
D -Tools System Integrator 4.5 (SI 4.5) enables systems integrators and custom installation professionals to create detailed projects managed with automated proposals, scheduling, pick lists, purchase orders, drawings and additional documents that streamline the integrated installation of audio and video products. By using a single, shared project file, system integrators and custom installers can download free product information from D -Tools' comprehensive database of tens of thousands of products and their accessories, giving them the distinct advantage of designing systems using the most current product information, while saving hours of product research time.
"We are pleased to welcome X -Spot to the MVP Program", said Adam Stone, President and CEO of D -Tools.
