We’re building Australia’s most comprehensive building product technical information database with the integration of EzySpec into NBS Source. 

Learn all about the new features that will be rolled into your NBS Source subscription.

Features and benefits of NBS Source

Get the most out of NBS Source with the following features. 

Get seen, get specified 

NBS Source gets your products specified seamlessly through the integration with our specification software NBS Chorus.

Your products are exposed to the right people, at the right time - during the project specification. Working directly with specifiers, you can build and maintain relationships right throughout the design and construction lifecycle.  

Soon there will be even more opportunity to expose your products to specifiers through the addition of EzySpec (now part of NBS Source) which is used on over $70 billion worth of live projects through the specification consultancy team at SCL Schumann.   

Discover how your products are being used

NBS Source allows you to plan your business operations and make decisions about your products more effectively through access to unique insights.

You can track the overall performance of your product listings and content including views, impressions, downloads and outbound link clicks. We've also made it easy to export this data to use it however works best for you. 

Manage your product information

With NBS Source you’re in control.

Through our Partner Platform it’s easy to create, store and manage your product information, with no need for manual entry or clunky Excel or Word documents. 

Update, manage and publish the content displayed on your NBS Source company profile, including: 

  • Updating your landing page details, such as images, company description, tradenames, and contact details
  •  Uploading and publishing literature, case studies and third-party certifications 

EzySpec and NBS Source FAQs

Learn more about what the NBS acquisition of EzySpec means for existing EzySpec manufacturers and NBS Source subscribers. 

What's the difference between EzySpec and NBS Source?

NBS Source is a single digital source of construction product information from thousands of manufacturers, in a standardised format, available when and where specifiers need.  

It contains all the information a specifier needs to decide on a product, whatever stage of their project they are at, and will integrate seamlessly into their project workflow.  

As an existing EzySpec subscriber, you will continue to enjoy all the benefits of EzySpec, plus gain access to the powerful features of NBS Source, including: 

  • Marketing your products accurately through a global digital medium 

  • Getting your products specified through our integration with NBS Chorus 

  • Working directly with the specifier – suppliers can be invited by specifiers into NBS Chorus to collaborate directly on a specification 
How do existing EzySpec users get set up in NBS Source?

In due course we will be reaching out to you to discuss the migration of your existing product data over to the NBS Source website.

Whilst our team will take on the responsibility of authoring all of your product content, you will be asked to review and confirm its accuracy prior to publishing. 

What does this mean for existing NBS Source subscribers?

We will begin the process of integrating the EzySpec platform into NBS Source.

Until the two platforms are fully integrated, you will be given access to both platforms. You will continue to have access to NBS Source, plus your product data will be migrated into the EzySpec platform.

Via the EzySpec platform you will have access to analytics on how your products are being used on over $70 billion worth of construction projects through the specification consultancy team at SCL Schumann.

What happens to customers who are signed up for both EzySpec and NBS Source?
Your existing EzySpec subscription has already been transferred over to NBS Enterprises so you will continue to enjoy the benefits you already are, with the addition of NBS Source.
