Because all pricing and product data is driven from a constantly updated database in SI—where all of the information is readily accessible—system designers and internal teams can dramatically reduce the time it takes to research products for proposals, which in turn provides the ability to react to requests more quickly thereby ensuring the best chance to complete additional projects such updating older campus AV systems.
SI gives the user the ability to design the system first and eliminate the time-consuming documentation that follows. This allows for the project to be started directly in Visio or AutoCAD—build desired drawings and layouts, and it will produce all of the documentation from budgetary proposals, equipment lists (projectors, screens, whiteboards, computer monitors, overhead speakers, lectern microphones, etc.), and wire schedules to wire labels, ultimately saving time and reducing errors.
SI offers the ability to schedule and manage Tasks and Service Orders, all within the same application. Once the project is built using the estimation and design tools, users can plan out the installation schedule from start to finish. The built-in scheduling tools factor in estimated install times on products for accurately planning the install timelines.
