Simply Reliable Claims Ci4C4 Saves Control4 Dealers Two Days of Work on Project Control
Simply Reliable will announce a new feature for its smartOFFICE and designMACHINE in booth 3020 at CEDIA 2019 in September. The Ci4C4 Process (Control Integration for Control4) claims to eliminate days of work and opens opportunities to double or triple the efficiency of the integrator, which can translate into dramatic sales increases and reduced labor needs.
Simply Reliable has developed deep integration of the business workflow process. Starting from the point of product data. smartDATA, Simply Reliable’s designPARADIGM adds to the manufacturer’s data; phase, labor types and time, as well as icons, task descriptors and even the Control4 driver. Creating a proposal in smartOFFICE for a potential Control4 prospect takes only minutes with the new customized quickSPEC and proposal process. Purchasing is simplified by the PO export which is uploaded directly to your Control4 cart. Once the proposal is exported to designMACHINE, the user can assign drivers and create a Control4 ComposerPRO file ready for implementation. designMACHINE can then automatically produce the necessary documentation such as wiring diagrams and cable schedules.
Simply Reliable’s smartOFFICE allows integrators to generate and share high-quality, digital proposals in minutes. With zeroSETUP, integrators no longer need to manage their product library which greatly reduces data entry needs that are typical with other software. Digital invoicing through smartOFFICE simplifies the payment collection process and integrators can get paid fast through their personalized client gateway with the built-in e-commerce platform. Integrators are now able to more efficiently generate and share proposals and then collect deposits in minutes rather than days.
Simply Reliable is set to release additional new features at CEDIA 2019, including new reporting functionality, time tracking and payroll management, inventory management, deep integration for QuickBooks Online and Desktop, as well as the “truWIP” process that will provide real-time revenue recognition, real-time job cost, cost of completion accounting and business health dashboards.
