Salt Lake City, Utah, May 14, 2015 — ARCOM® is pleased to announce that Zurn®, the market leader in sustainable plumbing products, is the first manufacturing partner to adopt ARCOM's "self-editing" product specification capability. Users will now be able find a product on Zurn's website, click the "add to ARCOM One" button, and automatically generate the appropriate edits in a MasterSpec specification section using ARCOM's SpecBuilder Expert, which is part of the new ARCOM One platform.
The ARCOM One platform will provide design professionals with a single, consolidated location for creating, editing, managing, and collaborating on specifications for construction projects. It will include ARCOM's new SpecBuilder Cloud™ software-as-a-service, which provides guided selection (Q&A), along with a full-featured, intelligent editor. Users of the platform will be able to select specifications for their projects from MasterSpec®, SpecBuilder Expert manufacturer specifications, or upload their own specification documents.
"Once again, Zurn has shown its forward-thinking leadership in providing new tools for design professionals. This new 'self-editing' capability will provide significant productivity advantages by automatically adding appropriate specification sections to users' projects," said Christopher Bushnell, ARCOM President and CEO. "Design professionals will no longer need to manually transcribe product properties from marketing materials into specification language."
“ARCOM One’s technology aligns directly with our strategy to deliver world-class specification tools to our customers. We are excited to be the leading manufacturer selected to showcase ARCOM’s enhanced capabilities,” says Christine Verdecchia, Director of Marketing Communications and Brand.
ARCOM and Zurn believe this new "self-editing" capability will set a precedent in the way design professionals select and specify products.
ARCOM, the specification experts, exclusively publishes MasterSpec® for The American Institute of Architects (AIA) for use by design professionals involved in building projects. ARCOM owns and publishes SpecText® for use by engineers for infrastructure projects, including water and wastewater utilities and equipment. ARCOM also provides extensive product and manufacturer information through cloud-based specification resources, custom manufacturer specifications, and the SpecBuilder Expert platform. ARCOM's innovative specification productivity software tools dramatically simplify specification creation, research, editing, and formatting. Follow ARCOM on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and our blog.
