D-Tools will demonstrate the latest features of its award-winning platform at ESX, emphasizing greater productivity and workflow efficiency for security and life safety dealers and integrators.
CONCORD, Calif. - (ESX Booth 1143) - June 11, 2015 — D-Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in system integration software, will showcase the newest version of its award-winning System Integrator™ software platform, SI 2015, at ESX 2015, being held at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD, June 24-26. This major release delivers software components critical to the security, life safety, and low-voltage systems integrator's workflow and subsequent profitability. New features added to this version include the 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.
"We believe that the security and life safety crowd at ESX will have a great response to SI 2015 and immediately see the value of the platform as a driver to increased efficiency and profitability," says Adam Stone, President and Founder of D-Tools. "Experiencing the new Mobile Install, Mobile Quote, and QuickBooks features and improvements firsthand inevitably leads to integrators recognizing SI as one of the most prized toolsets in their repertoire."
The software, which recently won a Security Sales & Integration (SSI) MVP Award at ISC West 2015, is available now with several great new features. Mobile Install (MI), for example, builds on the D-Tools Cloud infrastructure to give users the power to publish Install Tasks and Service Orders to a portal 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.
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, shop the bid, or find alternative resources.
Several D-Tools MVP program members will also be participating in ESX. The MVP program gives manufacturer partners critical insights and a direct connection with the D-Tools user database, which helps build customer loyalty by ensuring that existing dealers have the important information they need to recommend, specify, and install its products. It also makes it clear to any MVP program members' dealers that they are committed to the very best in customer support. MVPs have the ability to track how many dealers are downloading product data by day, month, or year, and monitor which products are being downloaded to gain insight and help manage their pipeline.
