About Mobile Quote
iOS Companion app for SI 2016
D-Tools Mobile Quote is a native IOS-based iPad® app that enables SI 2016 users to generate quotes in the field and bring them back into D-Tools SI 2016 for further project design and management. The D-Tools iPad® app leverages D-Tools’ extensive manufacturer product library by enabling integrators to access and integrate product category and package data from their SI 2016 catalog while working with customers in the field. Integrators can enter client and contact information into the iPad app, then walk prospective customers through available installation scenarios in order to create a quote for approval. Once complete, the resulting quote can then be imported into SI 2016 for complete detailed project design, specification, and project management. D-Tools Mobile Quote utilizes many of D-Tools’ workflow concepts, including the specification of locations and systems, which allows integrators to provide packages or pre-configured systems for inclusion in the quote. Labor and general pricing will be calculated to give the customer an accurate proposal, which can then be signed off for approval on the spot.
