"I wanted to share with you our experiences with the Adapt programming suite:
I have evaluated dozens of 3rd party Crestron programming options through the years always with the same result, not enough customization, not supportable long term, and/or just poor programming standards. Once I saw capabilities and amount of control available from the Adapt software I knew the game had changed.
ACS has been developing a standardized repeatable programming code for over 10 years and we have been very successful implementing some of the largest residential Crestron projects throughout the world. The missing aspect behind the ACS approach was the beautiful front end Pan-Tech Design was able to provide for Adapt. This front end allowed technicians and project managers control the most common changes, renaming rooms and sources, reordering of rooms and sources, and hiding specific subsystems or rooms from certain interfaces. I knew at that time to continue down the path of parallel development would be a mistake and have since embraced the ADAPT suite.
We have recently started to use Adapt exclusively. In our first project we saved 25% programming time versus similar projects. As we become more proficient in programming Adapt I expect to see these numbers to drop another 25-35%. Overall the Adapt suite has been a real game changer for ACS. This has allowed us to provide our clients a system with more features while drastically reducing programming times. The staff at Pan-Tech design has been an incredible team to work with and we look forward to collaborating with them and continue our relationship long into the future."
