D-Tools Holds Annual Design Awards

Concord, CA--D-Tools has announced a call for entries for their annual contest, the PROJECT: Success Design Awards.

D-Tools is pursuing SI5.5 user’s greatest success stories and project designs that display how the software has positively affected their business and ROI. Winning success stories will be selected from the D-Tools user base. Winners will be announced in September at CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis, IN.

The contest is sponsored by D-Tools MVP Partners Atlantic Technology, URC, and Atlona Technologies.

Winners will be selected by the D-Tools executive team. The winning entries will be judged on a number of criteria, including originality, use of D-Tools’ software, overall design and which entries best communicate and demonstrate the system designer’s grasp of the software.

Winners will receive prizes valued at over $3200, supplied by the contest sponsors and D-Tools Manufacturer Vantage Point (MVP) partners.
