D-Tools www.d-tools.com – Global Leader in AV Design & Quoting Software
By Gordon Dutch
D-Tools are the Global Leader in AV Design & Quoting software with over 7,000 users in more than 90 countries. D-Tools launched a new cloud version of their award-winning software for the US back in 2017. D-Tools approached Re-Sauce in October 2022 having seen their work in the US and Globally for a competitor and Gordon Dutch, Re-Sauce CEO, has now appointed as a Global Advisor to D-Tools Senior Management Team in the US.
D-Tools are looking to further develop their D-Tools Cloud software and sales across EMEA and so asked Re-Sauce to assist. The initial project was to review D-Tools current offering for the EMEA and provide suggestions for developing the platform specifically for Europe. Re-Sauce provided the review within 4 weeks of the initial request and it covered everything from Key Languages, Territories, Currencies and many other crucial elements. It also provided suggestions on overall Sales, Marketing, Press & PR. The report identified Key Partners for D-Tools including major AV Consultants, Manufacturers, Distributors, System Integrators and VAR’s, specifically by region and all across the EMEA.
D-Tools and Re-Sauce are now working through every aspect of the report to ensure that all of the Key Territories across EMEA receive the ultimate experience from using D-Tools software locally. From working collaboratively on projects immaterial of where they are located in the World and in their local language… to providing quotations and engineering drawings in the Key Languages across the World.
Having also reviewed the Sales side of the business, Re-Sauce were requested to provide high-level introductions for D-Tools into the leading Global and European AV Consultants, Manufacturers, Distributors, System Integrators and VAR’s in Europe, again specifically by region and all across the EMEA.
Prior to the ISE 2023 show, Re-Sauce provided introductions to AVI SPL, Diversified, Kinly and proAV to name just a small selection of the Key Global and EMEA System Integrators. Further introductions will be provided by Territory into the D-Tools local Sales Teams.
Re-Sauce assisted D-Tools existing Global PR Company with organising speaking opportunities at both ISE and InfoComm 2023 and assisted with Media Buying for the UK for ISE 2022. Going forward, D-Tools have asked Re-Sauce to assist with their Press & PR in local languages and the Key Territories of DACH, France, Iberia/LATAM, Middle East and APAC.
This is another exciting project for Re-Sauce and again proves the strength of relationships Re-Sauce has.
