D-Tools announced the 4th annual D-Tools Design Awards call for entries. The 2006 D-Tools Design Awards showcase the best residential and commercial system integration projects created with D-Tools’ award-winning System Integrator software. Winners will be announced at CEDIA Expo in September.
Outstanding projects will be selected from the following categories for this year’s Design Awards: Best Residential System, Best Commercial System, Most Unique System (residential or commercial), and Best Overall System.
The D-Tools development team and D-Tools Certified Partners will select winners. The winning entries will be judged on a number of criteria, including originality, most thorough use of D-Tools’ software functionality, overall visual quality of designs, plans, schematics, and which projects best communicate the system designer’s vision.
Winners in each category will receive an impressive award for display in their office and a copy of D-Tools System Integrator 4.5 Standard—a $3,000 value—as well as prizes supplied by D-Tools Manufacturer Vantage Point (MVP) members. All entrants will receive recognition for their submissions with a prize package valued at $100.
D-Tools System Integrator 4.5 enables systems integrators and custom installation professionals to create detailed projects managed with automated proposals, scheduling, pick lists, purchase orders, and additional documents that streamline the integrated installation of audio and video products. By using a single, shared project file, system integrators, and installers can pull information from a comprehensive database of tens of thousands of products, giving them the distinct advantage of designing systems using the most current product information, while saving hours of product research time.
“We’re pleased to announce the opening of this year’s Design Awards,” says Adam Stone, president and CEO of D-Tools. “We’re very proud of the great work our customers have created with our software, and this is a great opportunity for them to be recognized for their achievements and showcase them at the premiere industry event.”
