4 Reasons Your Firm Should Look at Specpoint
Whether you are a small or large A&E firm, the need to deliver projects on time and on budget is critical to your firm’s success. Navigating through the multiple phases of design and construction requires the team to work efficiently and accurately, especially when it comes to selecting the right building products and producing the project’s construction specifications. Deltek Specpoint can help improve your productivity, boost team collaboration and increase profitability. Here are four key reasons your firm should take a closer look at Specpoint:
- Make Better, Faster Product Decisions: Specpoint is the home of AIA MasterSpec – the most trusted guide specification content for architects and engineers. Using the latest in technology and design automation, Specpoint replaces unintelligent Word documents and time consuming manual updates to keep your projects on track. Specpoint gives you access to more than 50,000 product listings, including AIA MasterSpec approved products, so you can confidently research, select and specify the right building products and produce high quality construction specifications.
- Improve Specification Quality and Accuracy: Specpoint uses an assembly-driven approach for organization of the performance requirements of a building’s functional elements down to the work results. The advantage of an assembly structure is it empowers you to organize project elements into a workspace to generate data into a variety of useful outputs such as reports, custom packages for issuance, or sync information with a Revit model for more informed project decisions.
- Streamline Spec Writing: With hundreds of building products to research, specifications to write and manuals to produce, construction specifications are labor intensive to make sure they are done well. Specpoint is built to streamline spec writing from start to finish. Built on a structured, web-based data-driven environment, Specpoint makes it seamless for architects, engineers and specifiers to have up-to-date in-app product information and eliminate searching product manufacture websites for critical product details.
- Improve Project Results with Integrated and Collaborative Systems: Building projects are complex: drawings, product selection, construction specifications and collaborating with project team members. With most projects, internal and external team members are using disconnected systems and processes and wasting valuable time trying to coordinate project details, resulting in errors and costly rework. With Specpoint, internal and external team members work in a single cloud-based tool to consolidate and share information eliminating silos of information to deliver better projects. Connected teams and integrated systems empowers confident data-driven decisions to improve team collaboration and project outcomes.
