How can I invite owners and consultants and others to review my specs?

Yes!  Simply add these users as a VisiSpecs team member and they can collaborate directly from their installed Microsoft Word application.  You may restrict your projects documents to be read only, comment only, track change only, or provide full editing capabilities to team members.  Status flags help to visually see their review status and archiving their markups means you always have a copy to refer to.

Is there an EDUCATIONAL version of VisiSpecs available?

YES!  Please contact sales@chalklineinc.com for a FREE subscription for use in your curriculum.  Great to let your Alma Mater know!

Can I demonstrate the BIM integration to owners and management?

YES!  VisiSpecs links your existing Word project documents to your existing BIM models immediately!  No need to first update every family or material in your Revit model or convert and modify your documents!  Use the FREE trial and subscribe after your presentation (and promotion!).

Can OWNERS benefit from using VisiSpecs?

Yes, from project start all the way through to asset management!  Make sure your owner preferences are clearly communicated, written, and reviewed to ensure your highest quality products as the lowest cost is delivered.  Owners can even host their own design platform giving access to Designers and then Contractors and then FM to ensure there is nothing lost between design phases.  Contact us now to learn more.

Can Building Product Manufacturers benefit from VisiSpecs?

YES!  Specifications are what Contractors bid upon and BPMs need to be listed in the specs!  Whether you are writing the specs for your clients, providing Word specs, or collaborating with your clients, you can get specified in more projects using VisiSpecs.  Remember that giving clients a 3D model of your product means their model looks pretty, but your competition may be listed in the specs unless there is tight integration between your model and your specs.  Contact us now to learn more about getting your product specs and BIM models in front of VisiSpecs users.

Can CONTRACTORS benefit from using VisiSpecs?

YES!  Contractors must review all construction specs to know how to estimate and bid on projects.  Contractors also need intelligent linked access to the specs from within their BIM models during construction.  Updating specs with As-Builts and project commissioning are also benefited by using VisiSpecs.  Contact us now to learn more about using VisiSpecs as a Contractor.
