Integration professionals gain access to a comprehensive central database of products for use in a singular, connected process
(June 20, 2017) D-Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in data-driven system integration software and AV-iQ, the world’s largest database of AV products, announced a partnership and software integration at InfoComm 2017. This integration will provide D-Tools System Integrator™ (SI) users access to AV-iQ’s comprehensive central database of over 400,000 AV products, enabling system integrators, designers, installers, and other technology professionals to be more efficient with their time and in their project workflow.
When used together, D-Tools’ estimation, system design, and project management software platform and AV-iQ provide vital product and engineering data that helps users quickly and accurately find, select, and use the detailed product information in client projects. Tying AV-iQ’s product database to project documentation through D-Tools will result in a singular, connected process capable of producing more accurate proposals and estimates, while simultaneously reducing time and errors and, ultimately, improving any system integrator’s bottom line.
“AV-iQ’s strategic goal is to take the data we collect from brands throughout the audiovisual industry and find more ways to use it. AV-iQ provides a single point of entry for manufacturers to input their detailed product information, and then D-Tools enables us to deliver that information to resellers, integrators, and end-users through yet another popular platform, amplifying the visibility of the manufacturers in our program,” said AV-iQ Operations Manager Mark Loftus.
“Our mission has always been to enable our users to be more efficient and effective through the use of our platform,” said Tim Bigoness, CMO of D-Tools. “Providing access to the AV-iQ catalog gives our users a powerful resource that will help them save time and ultimately deliver the right products for their client engagements.”
Development of the D-Tools – AV-iQ integration is under way and is expected to be released in Q3 2017. In the coming weeks, D-Tools users will be able to access a growing library of detailed product information from AV-iQ’s database of sponsorship manufacturer members. Streamlining the transfer of product details while preserving data integrity will enable integrators to create more accurate proposals quickly, complete detailed system design drawings with the most up-to-date product information, and manage projects to completion on-time and on-budget.
