About AutoSpecs

AutoSpecs is a cloud-based project management tool that is designed to help businesses in the construction industry automate processes for generating submittal log drafts and reformatting information into editable schedules for administrators to add responsible trades, target dates, and more. It uses machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence to scan specification books, capture information, and organize contract requirements by specific types.

AutoSpecs comes with version-control capabilities, which enable contractors to track iterations, as well as differences, across designs. It can also automatically notify on-site architects about additions, changes, and deletions, in order to reduce errors and miscommunication among team members. The artificial intelligence-enabled platform lets users draw comparisons between submittal register and specifications for product data, tests, closeout submittals, and inspections. Plus, teams can filter draft logs based on specification sections, submittal types, or divisions, and bulk assign trades and dates to teams.

AutoSpecs facilitates integration with several third-party project management platforms such as Autodesk BIM360, Sage, Bluebeam, Prolog, Procore, Kahua, CMiC, Viewpoint, RedTeam, and more.

To be completely honest, I was absolutely stunned when I fist was introduced to the program by my Project Manager. Pype fills an incredible need in the construction industry and has improved the overall quality and time spent for specification review on our project. I look forward to continue implementing this program to its full potential in future projects and further explore its capabilities.

Pros

It is incredible how much time this saves in reviewing project specifications. This program has helped our team immensely in identifying project requirements effectively and quickly.

Cons

There are many beneficial tools to this program, however, there is some training required right off the ground in learning to use this program. This is not necessarily a con but is the toughest aspect I can think of regarding Pype.

Response from Pype

Thanks for your great review, Migle! We're glad to hear your team is saving time and improving the quality of your submittal log using AutoSpecs. We are looking into additional training resources and updating the UI (coming soon!) to make on-boarding even easier for new users. If you have any specific feedback for future iterations of AutoSpecs, please reach out to us at [email protected]

AutoSpec has been great! Looking forward to using this program on other projects and watch it develop.

Pros

AutoSpecs is great at organizing any and all submittals found in the specifications. It is easy to import/export and integrate into other systems like Procore. It reduces the time and increases the validity that you are requesting what is required per the specs.

Cons

There are few features that would improve AutoSpecs (some that are being worked on currently). For instances, being able to save filters and export those specific files would be a great benefit. Additionally, being able to "mass edit" files would be a great advancement. Coming from a complicated project with multiple phases, I had to edit the specification to include a prefix which made AutoSpec not read everything correctly. Also, AutoSpecs reads item types per what is required instead of their submittal type: i.e. acition and information schedule vs. shop drawings and schedule.

Response from Pype

Thanks for the feedback! We're glad to hear you enjoy using AutoSpecs. You're right - we're constantly working on enhancing our features, and we recently added the ability to save filters and export your register based on them. Feedback is an important part of future iterations, and we'd love to hear more about your "mass edit" suggestion and further filtering abilities. Please get in touch with us at [email protected]

It seems to have the same result. no one seems to understand how to use it/get multiple users to use it efficiently.

Pros

its ability to produce a resistery quickly

Cons

working in the program. I seems like extra work because of all the data it produced. I may be because I don't know the program well enough.

Response from Pype

Thanks for the feedback, Ben! By design, AutoSpecs identifies all of the data needed during the project, including items that are not submittals (e.g. Test & Inspections, QA/QC data, etc.). Using filters can help sort through and identify only the data you need at a certain time. We would be more than happy to help familiarize you and your team with this and other features of AutoSpecs. Please reach out to us at [email protected] or call 855-910-7137.

AutoSpecs is great for Preconstruction and subcontract formulation. It’s ease of use and features also allow concise and quick scope development. Active Construction use is non existent unless major changes are issued to the specifications during the course of a project.

Pros

The accuracy of extracted information is phenomenal. The ability to sort, filter, combine, and delete content exceeds any competitor product. Finally, the import capabilities with fellow softwares such as Bluebeam, Procore, etc is beneficial for any company.

Cons

A first time user will require training in order to fully take advantage of the product in relation to cost. User to user capability and sharing within your own company increases cost. Software also eliminates an intern, project engineer’s, and/ project management assistant’s understanding and comprehension of the specifications due to pre-extracted information. Finally, virtually useless post Preconstruction. High price for a short operation.

Response from Pype

Thank you for the feedback, Elliot! We're glad to hear you found such value using AutoSpecs during Preconstruction. To ensure that first time users get the most out of our technology, we will soon be introducing in-app on-boarding for convenient training according to any individual's schedule. The SpecView feature is designed for interns, PEs, and APMs to spend time reviewing and understanding the specs instead of keyword searching for them, and we welcome any specific feedback you have on how we can improve it to enhance user comprehension. Regarding sharing concerns, this is not typically an added cost; please reach out to us to discuss at [email protected] or call 855-910-7137.

This is the greatest software since sliced bread! You save time and money and can focus your efforts on the coordination of sub contractors and building the project

Pros

What used to take weeks creating a submittal register, now takes minutes after you upload the spec. It is more accurate and takes human error out of the equation.

Cons

I have nothing bad to say about Pype.

Response from Pype

Thanks for your great review, Francis! We're so glad to hear that AutoSpecs is saving your team money, increasing accuracy, and helping you reallocate time to what's most important - building!
