What does the NBS Australia acquisition of SpecPack Pty Ltd mean for existing customers of SpecPack Pty Ltd?

The SpecPack content set has now been authored for NBS Chorus. SpecPack is suitable for all existing SpecPack customers. The content is structured in the same style and format that existing users of SpecPack Pty Ltd are familiar with, but now on a cloud-based platform. The first content set from SpecPack Pty Ltd available in NBS Chorus was SpeedSpec. Many users of SpeedSpec have transitioned to Chorus with great success and are already creating projects using the platform.  To start using NBS Chorus you will need to subscribe. Get in touch today and our expert team will guide you through the process.

What is SpecPack content and what projects is it suitable for?

SpecPack is designed for large commercial and industrial projects and provides sufficient detail to emphasise quality control. Trade sections are between 3 – 5 pages long in most cases. Enhanced by the simple, CSI-based structure, SpecPack provides a simply navigated package as all trade sections have the same parts and clauses and key, relevant data. It is suitable for projects around $5 million and beyond.

What is happening with my existing SpecPack subscription?
Users of SpecPack, SpeedSpec, HomeSpec and other products can continue using their existing specification templates, however new editions will no longer be available in static format via SpecPack Pty Ltd. To ensure you're using the most up-to-date content, subscribe to NBS Chorus with the SpecPack content set.

What does cloud-based specification mean?

It also means multiple people can collaborate on specifications at the same time, with a full audit trail documenting design decisions and revisions history.
