D-Tools Launches SI 2017, Available Now, with Business Intelligence, Visual Reporting Capabilities, Web Publishing Capabilities, and More at InfoComm17

SI 2017 adds a host of valuable new features, enabling integrators to gain greater insight into their business operations and more effectively communicate with their clients during the project estimation, system design, and project management process

CONCORD, CA & ORLANDO, FL (May 2017) D-Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in data-driven system integration software, demonstrates the newest version of its award-winning System Integrator (SI) software platform, SI 2017, available now with business intelligence reporting capabilities, at InfoComm booth #3515 in the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida, June 14 – 16, 2017.

Built on the popular System Integrator platform, and expanding on D-Tools’ Cloud infrastructure, SI 2017 adds powerful business intelligence and visual reporting, enabling business owners and management to understand and better perform key functions of an integrator’s business – estimation, system design, and project management.

D-Tools System Integrator 2017Vital Business Intelligence (BI) Information Stands Out with Visual Reporting
Through the new Business Intelligence (BI) engine, SI 2017 can report vital information across multiple projects with pre-configured visual reports and dashboard views of key performance indicators. These new reporting capabilities enable deeper analysis of business activities and trends such as profit analysis, product usage, vendor engagement, personnel performance, and even sales pipeline, activity, and results, adding tremendous value for business managers seeking to analyze trends across projects, vendors, products, and their own team. Integrators can also easily create custom reports to view the data they need to operate in a more informed and efficient manner.

SI 2017’s pre-configured dashboard views can be filtered by date range and viewed as a graph (bar, line, pie) or table. Predefined dashboards include reports such as sales by salesperson, sales pipeline by project stage, top products sold, and profit margin by system type, product category, project size, and more.

Additionally, the new Dashboard Wizard allows users to create, edit, and clone dashboards to streamline the time required to create additional views. SI 2017 enables two types of dashboards: Summary (for grouped and summarized data) and Tabular (simple data table). The power and flexibility of the new BI engine is ideal for viewing the data needed to run the business in an informed and efficient manner.

“As a hard-core business analyst, this latest release delivers the cherry on top that I wish was available back in my integrator days. SI 2017 provides our customers with a powerful BI (Business Intelligence) engine, enabling cross-project, cross-vendor, cross-product, and even cross-team reporting and visualization, which serves to shine a spotlight on business highlights, trends, and anomalies so integrators can make better business decisions,” says D-Tools CEO Randy Stearns. “Commercial integrators can rely on solid data in making equipment choices, helping to save time and money on everything from stand-alone conference rooms to large-scale, multi-room projects.”

Streamline Client Communications with the New, Web-based D-Tools Customer Portal
The new Customer Portal, built on the D-Tools Cloud infrastructure and showing for the first time to the commercial integration community at InfoComm17, enables users to publish proposals, change orders, drawings, and other client-facing documents to the web for improved client engagement. Clients will be able to log-in to a secure web portal to review documentation, make comments, and accept or reject the documents presented.
SI users will be notified when a customer reviews, comments or accepts proposals, streamlining the process and improving communications throughout the project lifecycle.

“The ability to publish documents, like proposals, to the web for viewing, comment and e-signature, combined with our new business analytics capabilities through the powerful Business Intelligence engine, provides our customers with a powerful communication tool to more effectively interact with their clients and partners,” adds Stearns.

More Than 20 Additional Enhancements Increase Productivity and Profitability across All Project Phases

D-Tools will demonstrate the latest version of its award-winning platform at ISE 2017, emphasizing greater productivity and workflow efficiency for the international audiovisual market

CONCORD, CA & AMSTERDAM, NL – January 30, 2017 D-Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in data-driven system integration software will showcase the latest version of its award-winning software platform, System Integrator 2017 (SI 2017) at ISE 2017. To support its continued international growth, D-Tools will demo the latest productivity enhancements available with SI 2017, new 3rd party integrations, and share valuable insights and success stories that attendees can immediately implement into their systems integration processes in order to enhance operational workflows and efficiencies, reduce time and costs, and drive profit. At ISE 2017, D-Tools executives will identify new opportunities, and educate attendees on ways a highly functional, data-driven solution such as the D-Tools’ platform can create opportunity for Commercial AV professionals to improve their overall offerings through streamlined operations, automated business processes, and enhanced workflows.

SI 2017 New Features

D-Tools System Integrator (SI) software solution helps increase productivity and efficiency by bringing together estimation, system design, and project management into a single data-driven process. At ISE 2017, D-Tools will preview the upcoming release of its award-winning platform, System Integrator 2017 (SI 2017). New enhancements include Dashboards to track business operations, the ability to publish Proposals and Quotes to the Web, and more. Along with an enhanced feature set, along with a comprehensive library of manufacturer products, D-Tools SI 2017 delivers a powerful yet easy to use solution that provides a positive impact any business.

3rd Party Integrations

D-Tools has also announced upcoming integrations with several third party software providers in order to extend the reach and increase the value of its flagship software platform, These strategic partnerships move D-Tools closer to its goal of providing AV, IT, and security system integrators and consultants with a complete end-to-end solution that allows data to flow seamlessly throughout the project lifecycle – from initial client contact through the ongoing service relationship. D-Tools’ API and integration strategy is an integral component of the company’s core vision – to provide integrators of every type and size with a software platform that gives them the flexibility to select and adopt the various tools that best suit the needs of their business. Most recently, D-Tools has completed the company’s API integration TRXio, a cloud-based inventory management and asset-tracking software solution for the AV industry that takes advantage of the latest QR- and bar-code scanning technology. The API integration with the D-Tools SI platform helps integrators streamline operations, standardize processes and maintain clear and consistent communication between the office/warehouse and the field, leading to new operating efficiencies, improved cash flow and ultimately a healthier bottom line.

D-Tools Improves Operational Efficiency and Increases Profitability for System Integrators

For nearly 20 years D-Tools has been the leading software solution to help streamline the business processes for system integration firms globally in markets including residential and commercial AV, security, higher education, corporate IT, and more. D-Tools customers have shared recent success stories on how the data-driven SI platform enabled them to improve their operational efficiency and increases profitability.

For example, D-Tools’ streamlined workflow capabilities have boosted business for Atea Danmark A/S, a leading Nordic and Baltic supplier of IT infrastructure. The company utilized D-Tools for a massive connected University campus install, just as it has for a number of high-profile projects. “Speed, from the rough idea to the first drawings and purchase orders to the speed when making changes, is very important for us. Additionally, by automating reports, it reduces the time-consuming processes of making these things manually,” says Atea system designer Peter Mejer. “Not only does D-Tools give us a fast, reliable and working first-time installation, it has accelerated project business processes by approximately 15%, while employee time on tasks has been reduced by 20%. In general it’s pretty close to as perfect as you can get.”

Inspired Dwellings also uses D-Tools to streamline their workflows, and recently won the bid on a Chelsea UK smart home project as a result. “The success of our Chelsea town house project and the large amount of planning that went into it, demonstrates the benefits of using D-Tools’ software,” says Stewart Maynard, Operations Director of Inspired Dwellings. “Without it, we would have had to import estimates, price lists and CAD drawings in from other software, using up time and resources which we did not necessarily have. The unit and actual cost is listed for every product and labor item added, and through the use of the data generated from the Mobile Install feature and time reporting within SI, we were able to see the margin we were making. This ensured the pricing made sense to us in terms of profit, and to the client in terms of what they would be charged.”
