the wormHi everyone! It’s been a while since the last Data Edge article, an a lot has happened since then, so let’s get you caught up with the progress.

MVP Updates

Last year about this time, we decided to step up the pace regarding keeping our MVP partners catalogs updated. This has been largely successful, and we are now updating catalogs as often as monthly. This will continue to be a priority for the team, ultimately leading to a time when we have live real-time data.

Data Requests

Our data request system is working well, and is the best way to let us know which data you need. We love data requests! Thanks to all of you who have participated to date.


Around CEDIA last year, we started going back and adding I/O’s to as many products as we could. We still do whenever we can, so today there are more products with I/O’s in the database than ever before. We’re also hard at work improving the way I/O’s are collected and stored, so that in the future we’ll be able to add even more. We know how important I/O’s are to the work many of our users do.

Partners and more

We’re also working to expand our partnerships with manufacturers and distributors, so that we can get you more data more often. If there are any manufacturers you work closely with who you think might make a good D-Tools partner, send me their contact information at Building connections between dealers and our partners is what we do.

Looking forward to an exciting and profitable 2013.

Happy Easter
