AutoSpec: what you need to know about the platform
Sonae Arauco are proudly affiliated with Autospec, so we thought we‘d give you a little bit more information about the platform, what it entails and why we are affiliated.
AutoSpec is a superb online resource which, according to their website, is essentially an online expert database which features hundreds of local manufacturers in an expansive collection of South African building materials, fittings as well as finishes which can be searched by brand or category. The platform is used by both non-professionals, as well as people in building and design-related industries who are looking to source or find information on specific building products, including architects, interior designers, quantity surveyors, building contractors and people working in construction.
AutoSpec‘s platform simplifies the process of sourcing building materials, fittings and finishes and makes it easier for people in these fields to get in contact with brands directly, as it gives users the opportunity to search the platform for specific products listed. The listing will provide lots of important information about the product in question, showing the user everything from datasheets, to images, materials used and technical drawings, to help them decide whether or not the product is right for their specific needs. Once the user has decided on a product, they will then be able to chat directly to the brand, in order to get any professional assistance they may need, as well as pricing.
The platform gives users the opportunity to view product ranges, which include information and features such as:
- SABS approval
- CAD Drawings
- Revit model-based designs and documentation
- Ecospecifier certification
- Greentag certification
In order to fine-tune the search process for ease of use, users of the platform are able to create complete specifications of what they are looking for, which will enable them to easily find and select products that are the right fit for their projects. Once users have found the product they are interested in and viewed the features and specifications, they will then be able to request a quote or further information from the supplier or manufacturer.
