PPDS has entered a strategic partnership with AVIXA-affiliated software firm D-Tools, offering the highest levels of choice of its products to AV integrators. As a new member of the D-Tools i3 Program, PPDS’ entire library of Philips professional solutions will be visible and at the forefront of the decision-making process for system integrators.
“With so much choice in the market, it can be almost impossible for system integrators and customers to have full knowledge and visibility of every possible solution available to them. On a daily basis, our sales teams and our partners are faced with “if only we knew” scenarios around discovering and learning about our solutions. Whether that’s improving collaboration in classrooms and meeting rooms, upgrading a TV system in a hotel, or managing the digital signage in a retail store, bar, or restaurant. Working with D-Tools, our full range of solutions will have better visibility and reach a greater number of system integrators, helping to ensure the right solutions are made available to the right customers. That’s a win-win for everyone,” said Vince Schuster, Commercial Vice President at PPDS
Integrators and PPDS dealers utilizing D-Tools software benefit by:
- Gaining immediate access to a wide range of products with real-time, dealer-specific pricing for use in project proposals, system designs, and purchase orders from within the D-Tools Product Library.
- Having the ability to connect to their brand’s account from within D-Tools’ software, and quickly source products (complete with unique pricing tier) for project proposals and procurement.
- Achieving a friction-free and highly-efficient sales process with the real-time proposal and purchase order generation, e-sign capabilities, and mobile payment processing
Ensuring integrators have the right tools, solutions, and information to meet the exact needs and requirements of their clients, while saving significant time and costs on product research and compatibility, all of which PPDS will now play a significant part in.
“D-Tools’ partner brands help ensure their products are chosen for each project while helping their customers easily and accurately manage their product catalog and win more projects. Choice is everything and can be the difference between surpassing a customer’s needs and barely meeting them. Our software helps to ensure they are able to bring the very best solutions, and we’re delighted to have PPDS on board and be part of this process,” Barrie McCorkle, Director of Supplier Programs at D-Tools said.
