Simply Reliable has further integrated its SmartOffice business process software with Control4’s Composer. SmartOffice’s Design Machine feature reads a Control4 program and automatically creates a block schematic and cable schedule for AV integration projects. The entire process takes less than five minutes, SRS says.
Last year at CEDIA EXPO, Simply Reliable showed how a SmartOffice Proposal can automatically create the program for a Control4 automation controller. In addition, existing projects can be imported directly to SmartOffice from Control4 for project management from information shared between the two programs. This new interface will eliminate hours of programming time, the company says.
“This represents a fundamental change in the business process. This revolutionary feature makes the creation of drawings by hand obsolete,” said Jonathan Knapp, president of Simply Reliable. “Why would anyone sit at a desk for days creating drawings and cable schedules by hand when Design Machine does the work for you in minutes? Control4 dealers will make more profit and free up technicians for more projects.”
