Improved Product Search

This feature is particularly useful in situations where a product has been recalled, requires a firmware update, or is becoming obsolete and should be replaced.

Simplifying updates to/from the catalog helps users discover and fix potential product issues such as price differences, products that not available in the catalog, unapproved/discontinued items, and other project errors.

Serial Numbers Search provides an historical record of an item’s location and usage on a project—such as on a purchase order receipt, in a task, or on a service order, based on its serial number— solving potential problems and saving time for project management and service teams. 

Inventory Tracking
New Tracknicity and TRXio integrations help integrators manage their inventory, which at the same time ensuring that inventory items, whether pulled from stock or order 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.

Scheduling
Summary Tasks and Summary Service Orders group a series of connected events (i.e., installation tasks, service requests) to facilitate resource planning, scheduling, and invoicing.

SI v18 also includes performance enhancements such as faster client report generation on large projects and improved project check-in speed when updating a project.

D-Tools SI v18 will be on display at Integrated Systems Europe, Stand 2P300.

D-Tools System Integrator (SI) Software Adds Timekeeping, Job Costing

Release version 17 of D-Tools’ award-winning System Integrator software enables companies to better track labor utilization with job costing and project profitability.

CONCORD, CA (October 5, 2021) — D-Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in data-driven software for electronic systems contractors, today announced the availability of System Integrator version 17, which adds long-awaited functionality and reporting capabilities across its award-winning, end-to-end solution. Valuable new enhancements help businesses better track employee utilization, project performance, and key financial metrics. 

“Expanding SI’s project time tracking capability to a comprehensive timekeeping module enables detailed and accurate job costing. With precise job costing, SI can auto-generate labor utilization reports, calculate revenue earned, and display overall backlog,” said Randy Stearns, CEO of D-Tools. “At the request of customers, we’ve also made key improvements to catalog management, component ID naming conventions, and the Gantt chart, enhancements that will put a smile on the face of power users and new users alike.” 

Product enhancements in System Integrator v17 include:

Timesheets Enable Key Business Metric Reporting

Beyond tracking time associated with a given task, D-Tools SI now offers comprehensive timekeeping functionality. Timesheet data can be exported for payroll purposes, but more importantly, it can be used to track actual vs. budgeted labor hours and labor costs, which provides a number of downline benefits.

New views in Business Analytics based on approved timesheet entries provide an instant understanding of project status and team performance, while providing better tools for effective decision-making:

  • Job Costing allows integrators to track actual project costs on labor and equipment for revenue recognition purposes, thereby providing visibility into whether a given project is under-, on- or over-budget. Job cost analysis can be viewed by project and by phase. 
  • Labor Utilization Reports displays billable vs. non-billable hours and can be viewed individually by employee or collectively by labor type in an effort to monitor and maximize team performance.
  • Project Revenue calculates revenue earned on a project-by-project basis within a chosen date range. 
  • Backlog calculates the revenue yet to be earned for a given project, a group of projects, or across all active projects. 

Catalog Enhancements Expedite Product Data Management

Manufacturer Aliases match up data in cases where variants exist in a manufacturer’s name between your product catalog, vendor price lists, the D-Tools Product Library, and other data sources, preventing errors and redundancies when updating your catalog, and making it substantially easier to merge data from multiple sources.

Similarly, default phases in the D-Tools Product Library can now be mapped to user-created phase names to avoid the need to overwrite them.

Component ID Overhaul Provides the Ultimate Flexibility and Customization

Now, with the ability to customize component IDs relative to the number and size of the parts and use of separators, SI users can develop labeling schema that meets their unique preferences, or as may be mandated by a project, specifier, or industry standard. 

Every catalog entity including products, packages, labor items, and more can now have its own Component ID format.

Project Management Updates Streamline Processes and Promote Clearer Communication 

Improvements to Gantt chart functionality, including the ability to move or copy Planning Tasks, export to Excel to better enable sharing, and quickly edit tasks and start/end dates in the Gantt View allows project managers to better map out project execution details. In addition, there is a new option to select the date when adding or inserting Planning Tasks.

New Scope of Work reports and instructions help improve communication of a project’s intent and requirements to technicians, project managers, and engineers.

Tap into Additional Resources with Custom Fields Enhancements

Hyperlink Custom Fields added to products, projects, tasks, service orders, and service plans allow users to add links to save time and gain immediate access to web pages, product information, or project documentation.

Today, more than 7,000 system integration companies in over 90 countries use D-Tools System Integrator to drive sales and substantially improve operating efficiency by streamlining the entire project workflow – including estimating and proposals, system design and documentation, procurement, project management, installation, and on-going service – all through a data-driven process that leverages an extensive, integrated product library.
