SAINT PETERSBURG, FL – March 20, 2018 – Simply Reliable,
the leader in cloud-based business process management, has partnered with
Control4 to facilitate efficiencies and productivity for integrators. Using
Simply Reliable’s software products, integrators are now able to more
efficiently generate and share proposals, then collect deposits, create
accurate installation drawings in minutes rather than days, generate fewer
errors and benefit from time savings using the preordained job processes.
Reliable’s (SRi) smartOFFICE is tailored to the custom integration industry and
offers simple proposal generation and approval with e-commerce for client
payment collection, project management, logistic support and business
intelligence to integrators. Combined with
designMACHINE, Control4 dealers using SRi’s Ci4C4 Control Integration process can
automatically create wiring diagrams, floor plans and cable schedules, and integrators
can get two days’ worth of work done in 23 minutes.
Reliable provides a complete proposal and project management solution that can
generate a high-quality, shareable, electronic proposal in just minutes. Using
Quickspec, a point and click method to add Control4 and other integration
products to a proposal, dealers can then export the proposal file into
designMACHINE where it launches Control Integration to find and import drivers
for the products included in the accepted proposal. Once these drivers are
added, they become part of that dealer’s unique database of items further
expediting the process in future proposals. designMACHINE then turns the
proposal into a Control4 Composer Software (.c4p) file. The dealer then simply
connects the bindings to complete the connections and signal paths and voila –
the wiring diagram and cable schedule are automatically created. If any binding
errors are present, designMACHINE will call those out for correction. This
entire process takes just 15 to 20 minutes. designMACHINE takes the drafting
out of creating these drawings saving integrators hours of work.
excited about this partnership and the closer relationship with Control4,” said
Tom Coffin, President/CEO of Simply Reliable. “The agreement brings improved
efficiency, productivity, and cash flow to Control4 dealers – the trifecta for
integrators. Once dealers use our software, they will be amazed at the time
saving smartOFFICE and designMACHINE brings them and they will see the benefits
“We are excited to partner
