Simply Reliable Software, the manufacturer of SmartOffice business process software for integrators, has entered into a partnership with Crestron to develop a solution that would enable dealers to design and program systems quickly and easily.

"We are very thrilled to add Crestron as one of our Control Integration partners," said Tom Coffin, Simply Reliable director of business solutions, in a statement. "It is always our goal to save the integrator time while increasing efficiency and accuracy. Control integration is the next logical step."

Simply Reliable's SmartOffice Control Integration is a project management application that guides dealers through the proposal, design, project management, labor integration, accounting, and billing processes. According to the company, the partnership with Crestron will allow proposals created in SmartOffice to be exported into the Crestron control system in SIMPL, the native Crestron programming language. Documentation and drawings will be produced automatically from the project, the company adds.

"We are excited to partner with Simply Reliable to make it easier than ever for our dealers to accurately and efficiently convert proposals to fully functional Crestron programs within SmartOffice Software," said Steve Samson, Crestron director of business and market development, in a statement.

When SmartOffice software displays a list of devices, it can automatically identify the Crestron control module once the user clicks the check mark next to a device name and then clicks a button.

"This represents a great business opportunity for Crestron dealers. They will make more profit and free up technicians for more projects," said Jonathan Knapp, president of Simply Reliable, in a statement.

The Crestron Control Integration module for SmartOffice will be a free feature for existing and new SmartOffice installations, the company says.
