Deltek Specpoint, the home of the renowned AIA MasterSpec®, has unveiled an exciting update to its cutting-edge specification management software. Let's explore the major highlights of this release and how these new features empower users to enhance their specification workflows, supporting efficiency and precision.

Specpoint Smart Reports

Wouldn't it be a game-changer if the project submittal register could be automated and seamlessly synchronized with your specifications? Deltek Specpoint delivers on this front! The Smart Reports Submittal Register feature, part of Deltek Specpoint, the home of AIA MasterSpec, automates the generation of the submittal register, ensuring accuracy and eliminating data inconsistencies. This register enhances specification precision by minimizing discrepancies with project data natively integrated within the application, eliminating the need for error-prone imports. Design professionals can promptly access a highly accurate, on-demand list of project submittals, keeping projects on track and mitigating time-consuming requests for information (RFIs). Benefits gained using Specpoint's Smart Reports capabilities include:

  • Save Time Using Automation: The Smart Reports Submittal Register is generated in parallel with project development. This seamless workflow for Construction Documentation and Bidding saves valuable time and improves overall project efficiency.
  • Improve Accuracy: Smart Reports keeps project data local to the application, reducing reliance on imports. This minimizes data inconsistencies and ensures accurate information throughout the project lifecycle.
  • Elevate Collaboration: Collaboration among project stakeholders—contractors, construction administration teams, and others—is promoted. Diverse expertise and perspectives contribute to more efficient project outcomes.
  • On-Demand Information: Users can quickly access a list of highly accurate, on-demand project submittals. This feature helps keep projects on schedule and reduces time-consuming requests for information (RFIs).
