I don't know how you can sit there and create specs by hand. e-SPECS rocks!!!!! As with almost every other BIM product, I'm the Florida reseller so contact me if you'd like more info, proposal or live demo.

"We pride ourselves in listening to our customer and partner requests for new functionality to help further reduce time and cost associated in producing quality construction documents," stated Gilles Letourneau, InterSpec CTO. "e-SPECS was first released in 2004 supporting the Microsoft SQL Server platform, leading CAD/BIM applications and MasterSpec guide specifications. In response to an e-SPECS customer survey, we focused our development in the area customers requested the most which included more BIM integration and validation, reporting and editor enhancements. It is truly gratifying to hear the testimonials and success stories from our customers and partners and we encourage as much feedback as possible to continue to improve the customer value that e-SPECS is enabling."
