“It is an honor for D-Tools to amass so many awards at CEDIA Expo,” said D-Tools Founder Adam Stone.  “I attended my first Expo back in 1991 as wide eyed installer with big dreams. In 1998 I launched my software company at CEDIA Expo in New Orleans. Winning the CEDIA Best New Product award is a career crowning achievement, and I am humbled by the incredible response and recognition the company has received. I owe my entire professional career to CEDIA and I am thankful to be involved with such a great organization.”

D-Tools System Integrator SI 2015 was recognized for its impressive new features. Mobile Install (MI), for instance, gives users the power to publish Install Tasks and Service Orders to a portal powered by the D-Tools Cloud that can be accessed by technicians and installers in the field from any smartphone or tablet. Users can send and receive device-level notifications, schedule installs and make updates to a centralized calendar, then broadcast those appointments and changes out to their team in real-time. These adjustments will automatically synchronize with the SI 2015 platform for accurate time and installation tracking, which equates to far more efficient bookkeeping. To this, SI 2015 features enhanced integration with QuickBooks that allows integrators to track inventory and order status, sync vendors, and more. Plus, highly effective AutoCAD (including AutoCAD 2015) and Visio-based drawings provide clearer and more concise communications between team members and consultants for more effective project management, all of which benefits an integrator’s workflow and bottom line profitability.
