SI v13 delivers robust feature-set for residential and commercial integrators, with service plan and sales management plus enhancements to project management capabilities, drawings, and more
CONCORD, CA, USA — August 13, 2019 — D-Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in data-driven system integration software, will introduce powerful new capabilities of the forthcoming release of its award-winning System Integrator (SI) software solution – System Integrator v13 – to the Australian audiovisual integration community in stand P14 at Integrate 2019, August 27-19, 2019. The major release of D-Tools’ estimation, design, and project management software delivers a wealth of enhancements to help AV integrators boost productivity, streamline processes, and increase profitability.
SI v13 delivers critical new productivity features including:
- Service Plans – the ability to define, create, sell, and manage Service Plans for new and existing projects, extending the reach of SI. Now, users can manage projects in SI from the initial proposal through the on-going post-completion service relationship. Service Orders will be linked to Service Plans to accurately track estimated vs. actual results, both in terms of hours and dollars.
- Allowance Packages – SI users can now create “Allowance Packages” during the bidding process, and then replace those placeholders with actual products after the contract is signed without affecting the project price.
- Bundled Wire/Cable Packages – a new Bundled Wire/Cable Package option eases specification and enables connections down to the individual conductor.
- Payments Processing – the D-Tools Customer Portal now enables users to accept and process credit card and ACH payments from clients.
- AVIQ Database Integration – a new integration between D-Tools and AV-iQ provides SI software users with access to a growing, comprehensive library of detailed product information from AV-iQ’s database of products, ensuring data integrity throughout any project’s workflow. When used together, this vital product and engineering data helps users quickly and accurately find, select, and use that detailed information for their proposals and project documentation.
The newest version of D-Tools SI emphasizes trends within the integration community, including a focus on service plans for recurring revenue and better service, plus easy payment processing via credit or ACH to help improve cash flow. Overall, the enhancements to SI v13 can improve operational efficiency for integrators, resulting in increased profitability, while reducing time, costs, and errors with a streamlined business process.
