The World’s Leading Specification Software

Updated: 27 March 2024

Are you overwhelmed with the endless spreadsheets, documents, and software you use to manage your architectural or design projects? If you answered yes, then you’re not alone; hundreds of designers we surveyed while building Programa expressed the same thing as their number one frustration with technology in delivering projects. With advanced scheduling capabilities and real-time access to specifications and schedules, Programa ensures you, your team and your clients stay on top of your project’s progress.

Programa’s scheduling and specification features are seamlessly integrated across our tools, from idea to procurement, allowing you to focus on the tasks without requiring time-consuming data entry.

Find time to design again, without needless data entry.

Imagine organising all your project materials in one centralised location. Programa’s product library consolidates all your materials, fixtures, furniture (or whatever your specification needs) into one centralised location, providing easy access and reuse of specifications and other product information. You no longer need to spend hours sifting through multiple documents to find what you want. You can easily search by keyword, manufacturer or product name to find the information you need quickly and efficiently. Use the Web Clipper to add products from anywhere online to your project’s product schedule or your studio’s Product Library. Add custom specs and attachments like installation instructions for a complete overview of a product.

The Programa Product Library

Instant Sharing, Seamless Collaboration

Designs aren’t just about visuals; they’re also about communication. Programa understands this, which is why it’s made sharing your design concepts and specifications effortlessly easy. With just a click, access live views across mood boards, specifications, and other design aspects. These aren’t just any views; they’re dynamic, real-time, and designed to facilitate collaboration.

Whether it’s your design team, suppliers, tradespeople, or clients, everyone can have customised access to the project’s specifications and schedules. This means everyone is on the same page, making misunderstandings and miscommunications a relic of the past. In the age of remote work and global collaborations, Programa’s specification software proves to be an indispensable asset.

Presenting your design concepts and specifications professionally and with good design is essential for impressing clients and securing project and product approval. Share specifications in a click with Programa’s shareable live views across specification, mood boards and more. These features facilitate seamless collaboration with your team, suppliers, trades and clients by providing customisable, real-time access to project specifications and schedules. Programa’s specification software ensures smooth communication and lets all parties stay informed and aligned throughout the project. Make version control issues a thing of the past as Programa’s specification features guarantee seamless communication, keeping everyone informed and on the same page at all stages of the project.

Share always up-to-date, custom views of your projects and specifications.

Customisation at its Best

In the realm of design, individuality reigns supreme. Understanding the multifaceted demands of various design studios, Programa emerges as a dynamic tool rather than a static, one-size-fits-all solution. It celebrates the fact that each project, studio, and stakeholder group is unique, offering a plethora of customization features that allow you to fine-tune its functionalities to match your specific requirements.

With Programa, you’re in the driver’s seat. Whether you’re preparing a presentation for an initial client meeting, conducting a midpoint review, or preparing for a final project handover, the software ensures you present just the right amount of information, tailored to your audience. By giving you the power to control what your stakeholders view, Programa allows you to keep certain elements under wraps until you’re ready to unveil them, ensuring each phase of your project gets the spotlight it deserves.

Streamlined communication enables stress free creativity

For designers and architects aiming for perfection in every aspect of their projects, Programa’s specification software is a must-have. It offers a harmonious blend of functionality, flexibility, and finesse, ensuring your projects are presented impressively and managed efficiently.
