D-Tools® is a leader in easy-to use, highly accurate system design software. The company develops and markets software that streamlines the complicated design, engineering, documentation and estimating processes that accompany the integration and installation of low-voltage systems. Founded in 1998, the company pioneered the category of data-driven design and documentation with its award-winning System Integrator™ product, used by audio/video integration professionals in the residential and commercial custom electronics industry.
The Company’s flagship product, System Integrator 5™ (SI5), is a market proven software solution that dynamically links product information from D-Tools’ extensive manufacturer database to documentation and drawings, creating a single, coordinated, dynamically-linked, instantly updatable electronic project file. SI5 utilizes industry standards such as AutoCAD® and Microsoft® Visio™ to create detailed designs that are dynamically linked to equipment lists for fast, accurate documentation of system integration projects. SI5 streamlines the often manual, labor-intensive process of estimating, designing, and project management, allowing customers to realize substantial cost savings and return on investment.
D-Tools has forged relationships with key Custom Electronics manufacturers such as Crestron, Middle Atlantic, Sony, GE Security, Lutron, Runco, SpeakerCraft and many others to provide product data for D-Tools database.
