D-Tools to Demonstrate Latest Release of System Integrator Software at InfoComm

SI v18 is designed to help companies expedite the sales process, improve efficiency, and harness new integrated inventory management integrations with Tracknicity and TRXio

CONCORD, CA (May 25, 2022) – D-Tools, Inc., the leading provider of core business management software that improves financial results for thousands of system integrators worldwide, will demonstrate its award-winning System Integrator (SI) solution for commercial integrators at InfoComm 2022 in booth N1037, June 8-10, in Las Vegas.

D-Tools SI helps integrators win more bids and improve operating efficiency by streamlining their entire project workflows – from initial client contract through ongoing service. At InfoComm, D-Tools will showcase several recent enhancements to the latest release (SI v18). Geared to meet the unique needs of electronic systems contractors, new capabilities help companies save time, gain deeper insight into project processes, and improve operating efficiency throughout their businesses.

“D-Tools’ mission has always been to help our customers run more profitable businesses through software designed to replicate and expedite their workflows and best practices,” said Randy Stearns, CEO of D-Tools. “The new capabilities in this release were developed in direct response to requests from our users and include significant improvements such as the ability to change product quantities on-the-fly directly in a quote, and manage inventory through advanced integrations with Tracknicity and TRXio. We look forward to helping our customers apply these productivity enhancements to their day-to-day workflows.”

Enhancements to SI include:
Sales and Quoting Management
Quantity-based Quoting, ideal for large-scale security and structured cabling projects, improves application performance while allowing salespeople to develop a scope and budget in a fraction of time. Items (i.e. products, labor, packages, and solutions) may now be entered by quantity, without the need to assign location and system type, making it easy to price out and modify system estimates on-the-fly.

Products/items now have a new Purchase Cost field, which improves multi-currency support by enabling users to accurately track the cost for an item in one currency and present the price for that item in a quote in a different currency, regardless of currency conversion.

Inventory Tracking
New Tracknicity and TRXio integrations help integrators manage their inventory, which at the same time ensures that inventory items, whether pulled from stock or ordered for a project, are efficiently, seamlessly, and accurately tracked from proposal through being purchased, received, staged, picked, delivered, installed, and serviced, thereby keeping projects on schedule while helping to reduce unnecessary and unwanted inventory buildup and avoid duplicate product purchases.

SI v18 also includes several additional performance enhancements to help boost productivity and achieve healthier bottom-line results.
