Slateplan will demonstrate this new software at CEDIA EXPO 2015 in BOOTH RR11. “Customers are initially excited to design their home technology systems,” said Scott Marchand, CEO and co-founder of Slateplan. “However, the process of choosing products and developing budgets can be incredibly time-consuming and complicated. Slateplan software solves this problem.” Slateplan has reinvented how home technology is designed and sold. Slateplan’s intuitive, floorplan-based design approach dramatically improves the process for both the salesperson as well as for the customer. Slateplan software invites collaboration, instantly adjusts scope and budgets in real-time, shows the client what they should be spending on technology, and helps close the deal in the very first meeting. The software is so intuitive and easy to customize that a salesperson and their client can build a comprehensive home technology design in less than an hour. “Slateplan enables integrators to strike while the iron is hot, leading to more sales and a better client experience,” said Randy Stearns, CEO of D-Tools.
