D-Tools is issuing SI 2018, its newest version of the System Integrator (SI) software at CEDIA Expo 2018. Specifically designed to fulfill the diverse needs of system integrators and technology managers, System Integrator 2018 ties project workflows together into a singular, data-driven, connected process that improves operational efficiency while reducing time and costs.
Project and Catalog improvements allow D-Tools users to clone products and labor items when adding accessories or items to a package. Service Orders can also now be created for archived projects. Lastly, Mobile Quote has been enhanced to allow multiple packages to be added at once to a project.
Accommodating an essential component of virtually all projects, D-Tools has re-engineered its Change Order process to enable the creation of multiple and persistent Change Orders, allow users to differentiate between internal and external change orders, enhance change order tracking and accuracy, and facilitate the change order approval process.

SI 2018 provides users the option to accommodate use tax in their catalog and project pricing. Now, taxes can be applied to the unit cost of products. Margins and markups can include or exclude use tax, providing greater pricing accuracy and flexibility for users in regions where use taxes are levied.
To comply with Europe’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), D-Tools has enhanced its password rules and enforcement settings to ensure the security of customer data in accordance with the new regulations.
Improvements to D-Tools’ drawing capabilities include support for AutoCAD 2019 and the ability to assign color properties to wires and schematic blocks in AutoCAD, making it easier to represent and follow signal flow and connections.
