Now available, companion app to SIX 2013 enables systems integrators to remotely generate bids and later import them into D-Tools SIX 2013 for full project design and management
CONCORD, CA and LAS VEGAS, NV – JUNE 17, 2014 — InfoComm 2014 Booth #C8318—A
, the worldwide leader in system integration software, announced that the Company will demonstrate its new iOS-based iPadA® companion app for its flagship product, SIX 2013 at the InfoComm Conference
June 18-20, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas (D-Tools booth #C8318). This new release adds mobile quoting capabilities that enable Commercial electronic system integrators to generate quotes natively on an iPad and then import the quotes into the full D-Tools SIX 2013 software platform for further project design and management. Delivering on D-Tools’ commitment to streamline product updates and enhancements by consolidating them into an annual release, this new companion app will immediately extend the highly functional D-Tools workflow to mobile sales and specification teams.
A native iOS application, the
leverages D-Tools’ extensive manufacturer product library by enabling integrators to access and integrate product category and package data from their SIX 2013 catalog while working with customers in the field. Integrators can enter client and contact information into the iPad app, then walk prospective customers through available installation scenarios in order to create a quote for approval. Once complete, the resulting quote can then be imported into SIX 2013 for additional design work and synchronization.
The Mobile Quote app uses many of D-Tools’ workflow concepts, including the specification of locations and systems, which allows integrators to provide packages or pre-configured systems for inclusion in the quote. Labor and general pricing will be calculated to give the customer an accurate proposal, which can then be signed off for approval on the spot.
“Delivering features that enable our users to create quotes in the field is a natural evolution for us. The D-Tools Mobile Quote app is an important component that ensures our platform continues to meet the growing needs of our ever-expanding commercial customer base,” said Adam Stone, President and Founder of D-Tools. “The Mobile Quote app release is just the beginning. In fact, we are already working on additional mobile capabilities that significantly enhance our product roadmap. As we have demonstrated since the release of SIX last year, our new platform enables us to deploy new features as part of rapid and regular release cycles, which will ultimately provide our customers a clear path for sustained growth. We think InfoComm attendees will be excited by the capabilities of this powerful new app. ”
