jones_desings_logoCONCORD, CA, USA – February 4, 2014 D-Tools Inc., the worldwide leader in system integration design and proposal software today announced that a case study detailing the successful implementation and business altering results recently experienced by one of its customers, Jones design, has been published. D-Tools, Jones design, and KMB Communications collaborated to produce the case study, which describes Jones designs’ impressive growth that was benefited by operational efficiency improvements made possible by strategic initiatives that included utilizing the D-Tools System Integrator (SI) software platform.

Based in London, Jones designs was founded in 2009 by Keith Jones, a home technology business owner and product designer, to provide system and product design for both the Smart Home and Consumer Electronics industries. Jones designs refer to themselves as a “design conduit,” meaning they are able to translate their direct contact with end users into better product designs for manufacturers, while giving consumers and dealers a voice. The resources available to Jones designs give the company a special insight into designing for business success that benefits both manufacturers and dealers alike.

Process improvement has been a major benefit of using D-Tools, according to Jones design. “We are able to produce proposals faster and manage them easier as they are all in one clean interface rather than having to sift through folders,” stated Keith Jones, owner of jones designs. “There is less margin for error and improved speed when taking successful proposals through the design phases as AutoCAD drawings can be added to the project files and products can be dragged out from the project editor into AutoCAD model space. We can also easily create and manage revisions and produce a wide range of reports which include location information which was not something we could offer our clients prior to D-Tools, when we were working in excel.”

Since implementing D-Tools, the company has experienced an increase in both top-line revenue and bottom line profitability. “I had used D-tools in the past – SI4, SI5 and SI5.5 respectively – but had stopped using it as all our work was being done directly in AutoCAD which meant we didn’t really need the project and data sides of D-tools,” jones noted. “When we launched our new proposals retainer product earlier this year, the need for a fully integrated solution for producing proposals and AutoCAD drawings for our clients was required. The obvious solution for us was D-Tools SIX.”

A case study detailing Jones design research and implementation of the D-Tools software platform has been published, and details ways the team has implemented it to dramatically increase the number of satisfied customers they have by streamlining processes, creating more professional proposals, and executing projects both quickly and efficiently.
