D-Tools Cloud Update Enables Intelligent System Design, Productivity Enhancements, and Sales Improvements
New updates to the D-Tools Cloud platform center around intelligent system design. It starts with design tools, including D-Tools Cloud’s browser-based and data-driven drawing capabilities that remove the need for outside drawing applications such as Visio or AutoCAD. These design tools automatically create data-driven signal flow drawings (Line Diagrams) based on a quote’s bill of materials. Additionally, new Whiteboards allow users to sketch out and share ideas, collaborate on design, and help clients visualize the project, all in-app. Users can share these drawings in the proposal phase, providing a unique visual experience to potential customers.
New productivity enhancements include updates to change orders, for better project management; easy-to-navigate Ordering UI for simplified procurement, powerful analytics for better business intelligence, and integrated ordering with Amazon Business. Finally, D-Tools Cloud improves the sales process with a smart, intuitive UI that provides automated sales management, including a built-in CRM to track opportunities, visual quoting and budgeting, and the ability to transform quotes into stunning multimedia presentations for improved client engagement.
