“Building upon the architecture of the System Integrator platform including a robust D-Tools Cloud infrastructure, SI 2015 makes it faster and easier than ever to perform key functions of an integrator’s business—estimation, system design, and project management,” the company said in a statement. “The award-winning software features several impressive new features that attendees of the training session will learn how to use.”

More on the details of what’s in SI 2015 from D-Tools:

Mobile Install (MI) gives users the power to publish Install Tasks and Service Orders to a portal powered by the D-Tools Cloud that can be accessed by technicians and installers in the field from any smartphone or tablet. This feature enables users to send and receive device-level notifications, schedule installs and make updates to a centralized calendar, then broadcast those appointments and changes out to their team in real-time. These adjustments will automatically synchronize with the SI 2015 platform for accurate time and installation tracking, which equates to far more efficient bookkeeping. SI 2015 also features enhanced integration with QuickBooks that allows integrators to track inventory and order status, sync vendors, and more. Highly effective AutoCAD (including AutoCAD 2015) and Visio-based drawings provide clearer and more concise communications between team members and consultants for more effective project management.

Registration for the session is open now on the CEDIA Expo website. Aside from the training itself, attendees will get rewarded with .75 Continuing Education Units.
