CONCORD, Calif. - (ISC West Booth 33068) - April 9, 2015 — D-Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in system integration software, will showcase the availability of the newest version of its award winning System Integrator software platform, SI 2015, at ISC West 2015, being held at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nev. April 15-16. This major release delivers software components critical to the security and low voltage systems integrator's workflow and subsequent profitability, and includes the new Mobile Install feature as well as deeper integration and enhanced cross-functionality with QuickBooks, AutoCAD, Visio, and more. Now, the D-Tools System Integrator (SI) software platform drives even greater business productivity efficiencies among the installing community, consultants, tech managers, and advisors.


SI 2015 also delivers a value-added differentiator to users, enabling them to enhance their efficiencies and effectiveness in the office, field, and throughout their operations. In all, SI 2015 makes it faster and easier than ever to perform key business functions from system estimation to design, and now more than ever before, project management.

"SI 2015 is a critical tool in the integrator's arsenal of profitability. To see SI 2015—with its Mobile Install and Mobile Quote features, and newly enhanced QuickBooks integration in action—is to understand the incredible functionality and unrivaled toolset it provides to those that implement it," says Adam Stone, President and Founder of D-Tools. "Whether you are a business owner, sales professional, project manager, designer, engineer or installer, SI 2015 will have a dramatic impact on your business efficiency and profitability.

Now available, one of the significant features of the newest iteration of the D-Tools System Integrator software platform to the installing community is the remote connectivity of Mobile Install. Building on the architecture of D-Tools Cloud infrastructure, SI 2015's Mobile Install (MI) gives users the power to publish Install Tasks and Service Orders to a portal powered by the D-Tools Cloud that can be accessed by technicians and installers in the field from any smartphone or tablet as well as to send and receive device-level notifications. SI 2015 users can also schedule installs and make updates to a centralized calendar, then broadcast those appointments and changes to their team in real-time using Mobile Install. These adjustments and updates automatically synchronize with the SI 2015 platform for accurate time and installation tracking, which equates to efficient bookkeeping.

SI 2015's enhanced integration with QuickBooks allows integrators to track inventory and order status, sync vendors, and more. Highly effective AutoCAD (including AutoCAD 2015) and Visio-based drawings and industry standard shapes provide visual clarity and more concise communications between team members and consultants for more effective project management.

D-Tools' Mobile Quote is also available as a companion iOS app for SI 2015. A workflow-enhancing application, Mobile Quote represents a fantastic opportunity for systems integrators, consultants, tech managers, and advisors to work with customers in the field to secure an accurate and immediately deliverable system design quote­­—before the customer has time to second guess the decision or find alternative resources.

"We encourage both D-Tools users and non-users alike to take the time to demo SI 2015 at booth 33068 at ISC West, learn about our recent enhancements and innovations, and see firsthand how easy it truly can be to automate business practices, eliminate redundancies, and become more operationally streamlined by using the D-Tools software platform," furthers Stone.
