CMO, Specright

When we wrapped Specright’s Specification Management Summit in January, the entire company was so energized by all of the wonderful presentations and conversations that were had around supply chain resiliency, sustainability and packaging innovation. We knew there were so many more stories to be told and innovators to be honored and we couldn’t wait until next year’s Summit. 

So today we’re excited to announce the first annual Spec Awards, a new awards program by Specright highlighting the change-makers that have incorporated a spec-first approach to impact efficiency, innovation, and sustainability!

Award Categories and Submission Process:

The award program will feature three categories, including:

  • Efficiency Award: This award goes to an organization or individual who has gained tremendous efficiencies through a spec-first approach (e.g. time savings, faster speed to market).
  • Visionary Award: This award highlights someone who has used a spec-first approach to transform their business. 
  • Sustainability Award: This award highlights an organization or individual who has used specification data to drive sustainability in their organization or with their suppliers. 

Each category will explore how the organization had been managing data before working with Specright, along with the impact and outcomes the organization has achieved since implementing a spec-first approach. 

All Specright customers are encouraged to apply for this opportunity to highlight their implementation of a spec-first approach to make amazing things and propel their organization's digital transformation. Organizations can submit entries across more than one category.

The submission form should take no longer than 30 minutes. By submitting a nomination, you’re granting Specright access to highlight the data shared in your nomination as a case study on our website, social media and other marketing materials. We will reach out for review/approvals before publishing any content. 

Submission Period and Winners Announced

The Spec Awards open for submissions this Friday, March 1, and the submission period will run through April 30. All entries will be reviewed by a panel of Specright executives and three winners will be notified by email in May. Each winner will be featured in a future blog post, interviewed during a LinkedIn live with Specright CEO, Matthew Wright, and will be honored with a unique “spec” award either at their headquarters or at the Specright headquarters in the future.

We are so excited at this opportunity to highlight our amazing customers and look forward to all of your incredible submissions! If there are any questions, please contact for assistance.
