Feature Update: Spec Builder for Authenticate Members launches 31st May

What is Spec Builder?

In short, it’s a new button that Authenticate members can click.

The technology behind it collates existing product data on the platform and feeds it into a fully comprehensive, beautifully presented product specification document that can be viewed in real-time by your customers.
