What’s Coming in
System Integrator v13
Upcoming release of System Integrator delivers critical new features including service plan sales and management, and enhancements to project management capabilities, drawings, and more.
SI users will have the ability to define, create, sell, and manage Service Plans for new and existing projects, extending the reach of SI. Now, users can manage projects in SI from the initial proposal through the on-going post-completion service relationship. Service Orders will be linked to Service Plans to accurately track estimated vs. actual results, both in terms of hours and dollars.
SI users will be able to create “Allowance Packages” during the bidding process, and then replace those placeholders with actual products after the contract is signed without affecting the project price.
Bundled Wire/Cable Packages
A new Bundled Wire/Cable Package option eases specification and enables connections down to the individual conductor. Users can now create a “package” that maintains its own per foot/meter pricing vs. pulling pricing from the items added to the “package”. It is intended for “pre-bundled” cables that are sold with multiple wires within the bundle. We are also working on two new shape concepts: one to account for bundled cable and one to account for pin-outs.
The D-Tools Customer Portal will enable users to accept and process credit card and ACH payments from clients.
AV-iQ Database Integration
A new integration between D-Tools and AV-iQ provides SI software users with access to a growing, comprehensive library of detailed product information from AV-iQ’s database of products, ensuring data integrity throughout any project’s workflow. When used together, this vital product and engineering data helps users quickly and accurately find, select, and use that detailed information for their proposals and project documentation.
