D-Tools Cloud Expands Feature Set, Adds Innovative New Capabilities – Change Orders, Intelligent Browser-based Line Connection Drawings, Visual Drag and Drop Quoting, and more

CONCORD, CA — September 9, 2019 — D-Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in data-driven system integration software, today announced valuable new capabilities to its award-winning, D-Tools Cloud platform – a powerful, yet easy-to-use multi-OS, web-based SaaS solution accessible from any Mac, PC or tablet.

Building on 20 years of experience in providing tools and resources that help integrators become more successful, D-Tools Cloud is an easy-to-deploy web-based SaaS application that intelligently guides users from sales pipeline management to quoting, system design, and procurement. D-Tools will be revealing several critical new features at CEDIA Expo:

  • Enhanced Search Experience – Faceted navigation offers maximum flexibility in product retrieval. Entering a search term for a product’s category, brand, description or model number will instantly guide users to any related information and relevant results.

  • Plan Views / Drag and Drop Quoting – Browser-based design – upload floorplans and drag items (products, packages, allowances) into place to build a quote on-the-fly. System designs can be reviewed in realtime, providing a visually-rich experience for potential clients.

Line Connections – Browser-based line drawings enable visualization of the system layout by showing connections between components and devices, simplifying the integrator’s explanation of a system design to clients.

  • Drawing Synchronization – Users are offered the option to draw the system first and have the bill of materials auto-generate in the process.

  • Client Mode – Create quotes and review them with clients in real-time while hiding sensitive information such as product cost and margin.

  • Mobile Responsive – Experience the full capabilities of D-Tools Cloud from any iOS or Android web-enabled mobile device.

  • Enhanced Proposal Options – Preview, edit and share interactive multi-media proposals featuring videos, photos, testimonials, drawings and more from a single, user-friendly interface.

  • Change Orders – Easily make changes to accepted proposals, create multiple persistent change orders, present them to clients for approval, and track pending and approved change orders – from initial contract through project completion.

  • Integrated, real-time pricing with ADI and Savant – Direct data feeds, initially from Savant and ADI, provide access to real-time, dealer-specific product pricing from within the D-Tools Cloud environment for a fully integrated and streamlined proposal generation and purchase order creation experience.
