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.
