D-Tools and SpringDeck Form Strategic Partnership

Collaboration Gives Manufacturer Partners and Users Seamless Control and Unprecedented Visibility Throughout the Entire Sales Process

CONCORD, CA - OCTOBER 23, 2014 - D-Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in system integration software, and SpringDeck, an innovative new sales presentation app provider today announced the formation of a strategic partnership that offers manufacturer partners and users the unprecedented ability to seamlessly move through the entire sales process-from initial sales presentation to final installation-with never before seen visibility into pipeline activity and success. Users of both systems will be provided the added benefit of robust analytics that will ultimately illustrate how, what, where, and why products are being presented, specified and installed.


This complementary new partnership helps those in the electronic systems integration community-systems integrators, designers, consultants, tech managers and manufacturers-streamline operations, standardize processes and reduce redundancies. By coupling SpringDeck's comprehensive app-based connection tool that brings together products, sales teams and potential clients with D-Tools' data-driven software platform, users of both systems will be able to seamlessly execute the entire sales process from the initial sales presentation via SpringDeck, to the estimation, design, project and installation management via D-Tools, utilizing up-to-date product specification detail available via D-Tools' extensive manufacturer Data Library. By reducing the complexities involved, product information will be easily shared from concept to quote, thereby expediting the time it takes to close sales.

"The D-Tools platform has significantly evolved over the years and now delivers an unprecedented 360-degree view of the design, proposal, specification and install process," says Adam Stone, President and Founder of D-Tools. "SpringDeck compliments the D-Tools offering by simultaneously enabling a stronger, more cohesive sales presentation that shortens the sales cycle. Our collaboration will provide manufacturers even greater insight into when, where, why and how products are being presented and ultimately sold and installed. This is incredibly valuable data that's never been offered with this much depth and integration capacity."

SpringDeck offers D-Tools users a centralized hub that includes access to everything needed for a successful sales presentation. Product cut sheets, videos, and other content from manufacturers are readily accessible, and updated product libraries are available on the go. In-depth analytics provide valuable insights into customer interaction with product information, what products are most popular, and when to follow-up to close the deal.

"We recognized a hole in our industry and we filled it," said Ryan Sullivan, CEO of SpringDeck. "While there are several solutions for proposals, scheduling, ordering, and system design, nothing exists to help the dealer connect with the manufacturer like SpringDeck does. Nothing is out there to help a dealer's sales process before the quote. With our new partnership with D-Tools, we're enabling the natural progression from presentation to proposal and through completion of the installation, with best-of-breed capabilities in all areas."
