Ihiji Integration

Integration enables project information from D-Tools’ System Integrator platform to be imported into Ihiji ServiceManager for post-installation client care and managed services


DALLAS, TX (CEDIA, Booth 2512 & 5712) — SEPTEMBER 6, 2016 — D-Tools Inc., the worldwide leader in system integration software, and Ihiji today announced that an API integration between the two platforms is currently under development. The new integration offers system integrators the ability to seamlessly use Ihiji’s remote network management services with D-Tools’ System Integrator (SI) estimation, system design, and project management platform. This upcoming integration will enable project information such as manufacturer, model number, and customer details to flow seamlessly from D-Tools into Ihiji – ensuring data integrity and a streamlined workflow from initial proposal through post-installation servicing. Integration between the two platforms is currently under development and is planned for a release in early 2017.

Users of this integrated solution will be able to improve their customer service post-install and ensure that any potential service issues related to warranty, equipment failures or replacements are properly tracked and noted on all project documentation.

“Servicing the customer post-install is a fundamental element of delivering outstanding customer service, and is often the difference between a one and done and building a lifetime customer relationship,” said Randy Stearns, CEO of D-Tools. “Our integration with Ihiji will create a uniform process to streamline that transition from installation to service for our joint customers, and will ensure that critical project information remains consistent throughout the project lifecycle.”

“Ihiji has always focused on simplifying an integrator’s life and we realize that there is not a single software solution that will meet the complex needs of our industry. Duplicate data entry across multiple data silos creates inefficiency and information gaps that add to this complexity. Our partnerships with best-in-class solutions like D-Tools are aimed at minimizing these challenges. Ihiji believes the future is in software collaboration through modern APIs and we are excited to demonstrate this functionality with D-Tools,” said Stuart Rench, CEO of Ihiji.
