Productivity and performance enhancements to the award-winning software platform, App and Hosted Solution now available to current SI users as part of D-Tools' shift to annual product release cycle
CONCORD, CA and AMSTERDAM RAI, NL (ISE 2014 stand #1-N53) - Jan. 16, 2014 - D-Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in system integration software, today announced that the Company will demonstrate the newest release of its flagship software platform, SIX 2013 to ISE 2014 attendees along with an all-new iOS-based mobile design and proposal app for the iPad, and an exclusive D-Tools web hosted solution, a cloud-based workflow solution available to System Integrator users worldwide.
Now available to integrators worldwide, D-Tools SIX 2013 adds valuable productivity features and enhancements that enable commercial and residential AV integrators to streamline business processes, increase profitability, and reduce overhead. SIX 2013 makes it faster and easier than ever to perform key functions such as estimation, system design and project management. Moreover, SIX 2013 offers improvements in virtually every functional area including data and project management, QuickBooks® and third-party integrations, mobile connectivity, as well as a major upgrade in the software's drawing capabilities. The application delivers a powerful, straightforward solution that now can improve all areas of an integrator's business.
The new D-Tools iPad App is a native iOS application that leverages D-Tools' extensive manufacturer product library by enabling integrators to access and integrate product category and package data from their SIX 2013 catalog while working with customers in the field. Integrators can enter client and contact information into the iPad app, then walk prospective customers through available installation scenarios in order to create a quote for approval. Once complete, the resulting quote can then be imported into SIX 2013 for additional design work and synchronization. Labor and general pricing will be calculated to give the customer an accurate proposal, which can then be signed off for approval on the spot.
Finally, D-Tools Web Hosted Solution - Powered by Amazon Web Services™ is a "plug and play" option for users that seek mobility and cloud-based storage of D-Tools SIX 2013 Server data. Because the D-Tools Hosted Solution is powered by Amazon Web Services, it features the highest possible level of scalability, security and performance. This new feature-set enables remote access and secure offsite storage for the entire System Integrator user community and delivers an easily accessed and utilized extension of the system that can be used anywhere or any time it is needed.
Currently, more than 4,400 companies worldwide use D-Tools Systems Integrator Software to streamline the estimation, design, and project management processes associated with the installation and integration of low voltage systems. The D-Tools SIX 2013, iPad App, and Hosted Solution each serve to improve operational capacities and to reduce overhead, while providing efficient workflow. Demonstrations of the D-Tools platform will be provided during ISE 2014 being held 4-6 February 2014 at the Amsterdam RAI in the Home Cinema Europe stand #1-N53.
