Specification Software

With ARCOM’s specification software tools, you save time developing and producing accurate, comprehensive, and up-to-date specs your clients rely on. The software complements MasterSpec® and SpecText® specification content, saving you the time and money you normally spend on research and editing.

MasterWorks – FREE with MasterSpec and SpecText

MasterWorks, a plug-in for Microsoft® Word, uses custom toolbars and wizards that work just like the ones you use every day. These tools help simplify spec production by minimizing errors and repetitive editing tasks, helping you maintain consistent specification documents for your projects and office masters.

SpecBuilder Desktop – An optional, add-on software to MasterSpec Premium Libraries

A revolutionary new software, SpecBuilder Desktop, saves you time and money by simplifying specification editing and MasterSpec office master updating. SpecBuilder Desktop allows you to customize your documents using an intelligent Q&A platform. Based on your answers to project-specific questions, you can automatically include and exclude related spec content.

e-SPECS

ARCOM’s newest way to automate specification writing utilizes checklist technology to quickly filter through large specification libraries. Various types of project files, communication between specification writers, and project reporting can all live within the e-SPECS software. With the addition of our Revit plug-in, you can automate specification document editing from your BIM models.
