Faster Access to Referenced Standards, References, and Comparison Tables through SpecAgent
In an effort to give specifiers better access to decision-making tools, we've begun to make referenced standards, references, and comparison tables available through the SpecAgent companion browser. Our goal is to provide section-specific decision-making resources to help MasterSpec users as they work on a section.
"Referenced standards" refers to a list of standards used within MasterSpec, with a Web link provided where possible. "References" provides a similar list of other Web sites, books, and related material that would help the specifier in decision making.
In addition, many MasterSpec Evaluations provide comparison tables listing the characteristics of similar products. These tables are now provided in flip-page format (see example below), with users alerted to their availability through a clickable icon in SpecAgent.
