, the worldwide leader in electronic system integration software, announced
today that the new D-Tools Mobile Quote app—an iOS-based companion app for its flagship software, SIX 2013—is now available for D-Tools users worldwide. This mobile extension of SIX 2013 provides mobile project quoting capabilities that enable Commercial and Residential Audio, Video, and Security systems integrators to generate quotes natively on an iPadA®, then import them into the full D-Tools SIX 2013 software platform for further project design and management. Delivering on D-Tools’ commitment to timely product updates and enhancements, this new D-Tools Mobile Quote app will immediately extend the highly functional D-Tools SIX 2013 workflow to mobile sales and specification teams.
A native iOS application, theA
A leverages D-Tools’ extensive manufacturer product library by enabling system integrators to access and integrate product category, sub-category and package information and price range from their SIX 2013 catalog while working with customers in the field. Integrators can enter client and contact information into the Mobile Quote 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 the full SIX 2013 software application for additional design work and synchronization.
A highly efficient productivity solution, the Mobile Quote app uses many of D-Tools’ workflow concepts, extending them to the mobile environment where customer interaction often takes place. Enabling the specification of locations and systems provides integrators the ability to provide packages or pre-configured systems for inclusion in the quote. Labor and general pricing is automatically calculated, and customers are provided an accurate proposal that in many cases can be signed off for approval on the spot.
By using D-Tools mobile quoting software, integrators give their customers a professional and impressive solution that illustrates both their commitment to the latest in cutting-edge technology and respect for their clients’ time by offering fast bids on-site. An integrator’s customer no longer has to wait anxiously until the integrator gets back to the office and spends hours pounding out a quote. Solutions are quick, easy, and professional, allowing the integrator to get started on their project right away. Available to D-Tools customers via theA
, the Mobile Quote app will carry a monthly subscription fee of $25.00 per user/device.
