SpecifiedBy launch new construction buying process
Following hot on the heels of launching #SocialSpec on Twitter, today sees the public launch of SpecifedBy, after 3 months of development in private beta.
With an emphasis on organisation and collaboration, SpecifiedBy provides specifiers with tools to search, share and download a variety of detailed product information, including; BIM components, CAD models, technical drawings, tech/spec sheets and case studies.
Founder Darren Lester said, “We are really excited to be announcing our public launch. Interest in the platform from both specifiers and manufacturers during the private beta has been really encouraging and we are glad to now be able to let lot’s more people try out the platform.”
Darren added “Our aim is to revolutionise how the industry accesses and shares digital information. SpecifiedBy is the first step towards that, making a giant leap forward from the existing online directories which are simply regurgitating the outdated printed catalogue model.”
Richard Boston, Marketing Manager at Integrity Software commented, "It will be very interesting to see how #SocialSpec is embraced by the construction industry and if the range of products sourced in this way will expand into the software in the future."
As providers of construction-specific accounting software, we’re often given the chance to witness innovations in the construction world when they are still in their early stages. Recently, we have played witness to a number of small revolutions affecting the ways in which accounts within the construction industry are managed.
