Users of System Integrator SIX have probably noticed messages from our MVP partners in the download browser. These messages contain useful information about our partners and the current state of products which they offer.

What you may not know is that these messages are actually the beginning of a powerful communication system between our MVP partners and users. That’s because they allow users to take action. Actions like downloading pricing, logging in to a partner’s support site, or downloading a pre-designed system.

When a message has a special action that can be taken on it, there will either be a link within the body of the message, or a file attachment. Clicking on the File Available link in a message will automatically download the file, and, if appropriate, import the file into SIX.

This allows our partners to publish pricing directly to D-Tools users. It also allows users to download entire catalogs, speeding up data entry. For example, the Capitol Sales catalog can be downloaded using the instructions found here.

And this is just the beginning. We’re working with our partners to get you even more information, and in the coming months you’ll see more and more ways for dealers to stay in contact.

All with the goal of saving time and working more efficiently, which is pretty much what we do here at D-Tools.

If you have any questions, thoughts or suggetions about this, please add a comment below or email me at We’d love to hear what you think of this new capability.
