Simply Reliable has partnered with Control4 to “facilitate efficiencies and productivity for integrators.” Using Simply Reliable’s software products, integrators are now able to generate and share proposals, then collect deposits, create accurate installation drawings in minutes rather than days.
Simply Reliable’s (SRi) smartOFFICE is tailored to the custom integration industry and offers simple proposal generation and approval with e-commerce for client payment collection, project management, logistic support and business intelligence to integrators. Combined with designMACHINE, Control4 dealers using SRi’s Ci4C4 Control Integration process can automatically create wiring diagrams, floor plans and cable schedules and integrators can get two days’ worth of work done in 23 minutes.
Simply Reliable provides a complete proposal and project management solution that can generate a high-quality, shareable, electronic proposal in just minutes. Using Quickspec, a point and click method to add Control4 and other integration products to a proposal, dealers can then export the proposal file into designMACHINE where it launches Control Integration to find and import drivers for the products included in the accepted proposal. Once these drivers are added, they become part of that dealer’s unique database of items further expediting the process in future proposals. designMACHINE then turns the proposal into a Control4 Composer Software (.c4p) file. The dealer then simply connects the bindings to complete the connections and signal paths and voila – the wiring diagram and cable schedule are automatically created. If any binding errors are present, designMACHINE will call those out for correction. This entire process takes just 15 to 20 minutes. designMACHINE takes the drafting out of creating these drawings saving integrators hours of work.
smartOFFICE has strong appeal for small business owners who have had to struggle to run their business using multiple unintegrated apps, making scaling their business virtually impossible. smartOFFICE is to business process as QuickBooks was to accounting 20 years ago — a significant and affordable digital transformation for small business.
