Power up your product data

During the design phase, NBS helps architects and designers make swift, informed design choices. Our platform fosters team collaboration and ensures precise documentation that boosts efficiency. At NBS, we expertly craft your digital objects and structure your content to align with the industry demands for quality product data that, seamlessly integrate with the specification.

Integrate seamlessly

Of the AJTop100 architects, 98% use NBS to write their specifications. Unique to the construction market, with NBS Source, you can integrate with the UK's leading specification platform, NBS Chorus, allowing your products to be written into the spec at the click of a button. You can also integrate NBS Source with your website to maximise your reach, and with an NBS Chorus license, you can collaborate with specifiers in real time, building relationships based on trust and expertise within the specification environment.

Maximise your sales opportunities

NBS provides precise analytics for your product listings so you can see where your products and BIM objects are specified and in which projects, allowing you to easily manage inbound leads. Analyse trends in product selection and preferences, as well as competition data, to discover how you compare. To support your outbound sales strategy, unique to NBS, find out where products like yours are needed but not yet selected so you can focus your sales activity with laser precision.

Create a lasting impression

Beyond construction, the inclusion of your products in the specification, model, and drawings helps to secure their lasting presence in the project. This 'triple lock' positions your brand as the preferred choice for ongoing maintenance, repairs, and upgrades throughout the building's lifecycle. During this period, take the opportunity to showcase your success with Marketing Services, highlighting the long-term value and performance of your products and reinforcing their integral role in the project's longevity.

“We developed BIM internally, and whilst it was functional, it was not exactly what we required. So further collaboration with NBS took our BIM offering to the level expected from specifiers and contractors. The expertise of the team at NBS has allowed us to generate specifications and focus on the practices actively looking for safe, sustainable and cost-effective floor screeding solutions.”

“NBS Source will ensure we can closely monitor that our information presents correctly, is up to date and is easy to use. More collaborative functionality with specifiers regarding the specification writing process will provide the opportunity to engage more closely during both the decision making and specification writing process. This will lead to more accurate specification of both product and technical content.”

“The new NBS Source platform has given us far better scope to improve our product listings, allowing us to give architects and specifiers more detailed information to make informed product choices. As a result, we’ve tripled our monthly products added to specs, and with the help of the improved NBS Source analytics, have been able to bolster our relationships with those architects as the projects go forward.”
