Schneider Electric Announces a Platform Streamlining Product Specification Development Process

Schneider Electric launched SpecLive Collaborate, a platform designed to help modernize and streamline product specification development and content integration. Developed in partnership with RIB Software, SpecLive Collaborate represents a new generation of collaborative, prescriptive solutions and is the latest offer in the Schneider Electric Specifier toolkit.

Developing specifications can often be a disjointed, manual process that sometimes relies on templatized content that could potentially involve outdated office files where the latest or most pertinent information can often get lost in version control. SpecLive Collaborate provides specifiers and engineers with a simpler, more streamlined experience for evaluating Schneider Electric’s solutions. This platform helps to keep technical product data intact by providing real time access to cloud-hosted specification content, helping to reduce coordination gaps for the duration of the specification process. By improving upon static document-based processes, SpecLive Collaborate helps to empower teams with a shared, cloud-based workspace to develop more accurate specifications more collaboratively and efficiently.

Schneider Electric engaged RIB to develop the SpecLive Collaborate platform to help address an unmet need in the specifier marketplace for those still using multiple documents and sources to complete their project specifications. 

Companies are increasingly digitizing their operations. The inclusion of new systems with interconnected products can add complexity to both the modeling and specifications stages, as these systems must be supported by context-specific specification language, supporting technical data, and often access to a representative. To better address these demands, SpecLive Collaborate helps to:

  • Keeps firms more engaged. SpecLive Collaborate allows stakeholders to work side-by-side on the same specifications and automatically updates the files, providing visibility beyond typical rote selection and configuration. This transparency helps to empower end users to further engage with the process as they develop specifications.

  • Expands stakeholder audience. SpecLive Collaborate integrates with RIB SpecLink, providing access to Schneider Electric’s products and curated prescriptive specification content, directly into the workflows of an ever growing list of owners, specifiers, architects, and engineers.

  • Moves projects forward. SpecLive Collaborate provides a cloud-based workspace with a simpler and more intuitive drag and drop interface with access to prewritten content to help save time and improve accuracy and efficiency.

SpecLive Collaborate is part of Schneider Electric’s Specifier toolkit, made available via the MySchneider portal and consulting application engineers to provide users with information to help more easily generate accurate and comprehensive specifications. SpecLive Collaborate does not require new workflows, and if the specifier has questions about a product or other information in the tool, they can request help directly through the platform.

Similar to all tools in the Specifier Toolkit, SpecLive Collaborate is free to Specifiers enrolled in the MySchneider program. More information about SpecLive Collaborate and other RIB manufacturer solutions can be found on RIB online.
