Data export feature bridges specifiers and contractors gap

September 4th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

NBS has launched a new feature which enables users of its Chorus specification platform to export a list of submittals from a specification in one click and import them directly into leading common data environments (CDEs). Submittals are an essential part of the construction process, effectively comprising a list of tasks which the contractor must deliver. But problems can often occur in project delivery when submittals are completed incorrectly or with poor information. NBS Chorus was launched earlier this year as a fully cloud-based specification platform for construction. The latest feature release effectively brings the specifier closer to the contractor, enabling them to generate their submittals directly from the specification, and ensuring they are based on the same information set. By integrating CDE software with NBS Chorus, users eliminate the need for manual copying or re-keying information, greatly reducing the chance of human error and driving data accuracy. NBS has developed partnerships with industry leading CDE companies including Autodesk, Viewpoint and Newforma to provide customers with enhanced value and smarter specifications. CDEs are cloud-based extranets that host project information, often used by contractors.
