D-Tools and SBS Group announce strategic partnership

System integration software company D-Tools and consulting and IT solutions specialists SBS Group will develop new software for integrators.

This integrated software platform will harness the power of both the D-Tools System Integrator and Microsoft Dynamics SL ERP platforms. The aim is to provide an enhanced end-to-end business process for tech managers, systems integrators, technology consultants and advisors.

“Accurate quoting, efficient engineering, and effective project management are paramount to a systems integrator’s long-term success,” said James Bowman, president and CEO of SBS Group. “By integrating D-Tools with our Microsoft Dynamics-based solution for the AV industry, we boost the capabilities provided by both software applications to best serve the needs of the Commercial AV integration community.”

The integration of D-Tools System Integrator and Microsoft SBS Group AV System Integrator Software provides project management teams with a complete estimation, design, and project management workflow. This integration enables integrators to create a project, generate detailed proposals, system designs, and other project documentation from within D-Tools System Integrator, and then pushes that project and product data into Microsoft Dynamics SL for order & contract management, invoicing, inventory management, and subsequent project management.

The SBS AV Application makes sure that purchased materials get to the job when they are needed and includes Mobile Apps for virtually any device providing anywhere access to all key areas of functionality. Project Managers have up-to-date project reports and full change control.

“Our new alliance with SBS Group enables D-Tools to provide Commercial AV and Security integrators with a complete software platform that enables them to more effectively manage projects as part of their core operational structure,” said Adam Stone, president and CEO of D-Tools. ”As a longtime Microsoft certified partner, we are pleased to team up with SBS Group to both provide new and innovative solutions built on the D-Tools and Microsoft platforms as well as to create new opportunities.”
