D -Tools and DYMO Industrial to Provide Integrated Wire Label Solution

Users of D-Tools SI5 Software can import wire label reports into Rhino Label Printers, significantly reducing time and money - Joint Solution to debut at D-Tools University in November

CONCORD, Calif. & STAMFORD, Conn. - Nov. 11, 2008 - D -Tools Inc., the worldwide leader in system integration software, today announced a strategic partnership with DYMO Industrial, a leading provider of industrial labeling solutions through its RHINO® Professional Labeling Tools. This partnership will make it easier and more cost -effective for integrators to print accurate wire labels as part of their system integration project documentation.


"We're pleased to team up with D -Tools to provide an integrated wire labeling solution for integrators in the field," said Keith Smith, national account manager - Security & Pro AV for RHINO, DYMO Industrial. "D -Tools System Integrator software is used by thousands of AV, networking and security integrators, and we look forward to providing these professionals with the best handheld labeling solution to help them better document their system components."

As part of this new business relationship, D -Tools System Integrator™ software users will be able to export detailed wire label information from their SI projects into RHINO labeling products for use in labeling wires, panels, plates and modules in the field, using RHINO nylon, polyester and vinyl labels, and non -adhesive tags, applied with the newly released RHINO 6000 and 6500 label printers. These two new printers allow installers to create and print labels in the field and/or to connect to a PC via RHINO Connect Software [RCS]. RCS allows the embedding of company logos to brand any label and to import pre -defined templates from major manufacturers of structured cabling connectivity products. Most importantly, the software allows D -Tools customers to easily import label data from an external D -Tools project file.

"We are pleased to work with DYMO Industrial to provide a more automated field labeling solution," said Adam Stone, president and CEO of D -Tools. "Accurate wire labeling is a critical part of the system integration process, and our integrated solution will make it easier for integrators to streamline this process and ensure wire labels are a part of every project."

D -Tools and DYMO Industrial will be demonstrating this new functionality at D -Tools University, November 12 -14, 2008 at the Doubletree Hotel Atlanta -Buckhead. For more information please visit www.d -tools.com or www.rhinolabeling.com for information on Rhino labeling solutions.
