Ampelite recognised NBS Source as a supercharged version of what is currently available on the market in Australia. Having used other platforms, to us NBS represented great value. NBS Source speeds up decision making for specifiers, as we ‘manufacturers’ are providing data in an easily comparable format on this powerful product search engine. We identified long ago architects and specifiers play an integral role in the sale of our products. Never more than now has electronic connectivity been so important. NBS is an excellent tool in providing the right information at the right time.

NBS Source allows specifiers to find and browse products and manufacturers using intuitive search, select and compare products using structured properties, values and technical information, and specify products directly into their project specification, 3D model or both, via full integration with NBS Chorus.

NBS Source integrates seamlessly into the specifiers project workflow and provides an additional level of enhanced product data, in a consistent, structured format saving architects and specifiers time chasing product information across the web, on phone calls and manual searches though product literature.

Technical product information for Ampelite’s polycarbonate panels, fibreglass, glass-reinforced polyester sheeting, roof lights and ventilators is now available on NBS Source.
