What are managed Data & Labor Catalogs?

​And how can this help you?

It is a set of services we have created so that you the integrator will never have to enter product or labor data into D-Tools again.

We created this service because as former owners and operators of integration companies we found ourselves spending way too much time entering and managing data.  

 

This took our attention away from managing sales, customer relationships and day-to-day operations.  If you are like us and most of our clients, you would prefer to be focused on growth, sales, and operations rather than data-entry or data-management.

We host your D-Tools server on Amazon's AWS cloud, one of the most reliable cloud services in the world

We administer your BlueDog hosted D-Tools server by keeping the software and the operating system updated

  • We only load product data for manufacturers that you work with keeping your catalog clutter-free

We take basic data about products from manufacturers and enrich it to create a comprehensive product catalog

We manage over 30 different data fields that make your data both "Proposal Ready" and "Engineering Ready"

We accessorize products and enter labor values for each items so you don't leave money on the table

When we add or update products in our master catalog, you get the updates automatically

  • We push updates to your catalog multiple times per day

why invest in a service like this

We created this service because we make it our job to make YOUR job easier so you can increase profit margins and spend time doing what you do best.

Our subscription service provides continual updates to your catalog multiple times daily

As refreshed data is loaded, you have access to it immediately.

 

It takes time, research, money, and discipline

The amount of work it actually takes to maintain high-quality data required to drive the software systems used by integrators to create proposals, sales orders, system designs, purchase orders, and work orders is monumental.

High-quality data available reduces the time and cost of essential business activities

(i.e. generating proposals, purchase orders, etc.)

 

Reduces the headaches of costly mistakes

(i.e. forgetting to spec equipment which cuts profitability)

Your time is worth more

Most integrators would rather not be spending their time or resources dealing with all the data that's needed to drive their proposal, design, and accounting software.  

The non-stop hunt for current & accurate specs

Manufacturers provide either incomplete information about their products or the information is spread-out between excel spreadsheets, their website, PDF files, etc. And pricing alone constantly changes.

Our Solution.

For a low fixed monthly cost, Our Product Catalog Data populates your software’s database with all the current specs you need to assemble quality proposals quickly.  

Need to add a new product or product line? No problem, just make the request and we will have it in your database within 48 hours.
