RapidSpec – “Revolutionising the door manufacturing industry”


RapidSpec is the first software of its kind ever produced for door manufacturers, specifiers and the building industry.

The software has been developed by Database Design (UK) over 5 years aims to reduce the time it takes to produce door schedules and door set drawings needed for commercial buildings. Version 7.3 now automatically produces a cost and selling price for each individual door set, maintaining consistently accurate pricing.

It has been warmly received by manufacturers, specifiers and architects alike who have said the whole process of door scheduling is faster easier and significantly less error prone when using this software.

“We’ve used RapidSpec for 3 months and it’s a godsend. Two of us in the office recently quoted for a €70,000 project in 1 and a half hours. This would normally have taken at least a day. We then just print a bill of materials in 3 minutes. Even project changes are no worry; we just make the changes, re-quote and re-print a new bill of materials immediately”. Eugene Cornally, Managing Director, Door Kits Ltd, Roscommon, Ireland

Chris Chamberlain of Newbury Commercial Interiors says of the software: “RapidSpec is a remarkable software product. Its speed really comes to the fore when we have a high work load and short lead times. Under these conditions especially, we would not want to be faced with scheduling the old way.”

There are two versions of the software available to download from their website www.rapidspec.co.uk RapidSpec Advanced Vs 3.2 and RapidSpec Manufacturing V7.3.
