We're On a Mission to Change How Things are Made

As a packaging executive and supplier, Matthew Wright spent 20+ years dealing with spec problems. He founded Specright so people like you can spend less time chasing data and more time making amazing things.

Get Started
When you get the spec right, the rest follows
“From automotive and aerospace to beauty, CPG, and food, I saw every industry struggle with a lack of specification data. I also realized any data that did exist was typically worthless because it lacked a common language and was hard to share. Not only was it frustrating, it was bad for business and led to waste. The answer seemed simple: a standard, templated system to manage specs. A single source of truth.”
Matthew Wright
Founder & CEO, Specright
Our Founding Story
For more than 20 years, Matthew Wright traveled across the country selling packaging, watching everything you can imagine be made. His experience as a supplier led him to create the first Specification Management platform so people could spend less time chasing data and more time making amazing, sustainable things.

At Specright, we have a clear vision, mission and credo that governs everything we do
Our Vision
To live in a world without waste.
Our Mission
To help people and companies make amazing, sustainable things.
“I witnessed the explosion of SKUs during my time at PepsiCo and the rise of eCommerce as the first CEO of Walmart.com. In The Evolution of Products & Packaging, Matthew Wright does more than explain how we got to where we are, but how we can prepare now for where the industry is going.”
Carter Cast
The Michael S. and Mary Sue Shannon Clinical Professor of Entrepreneurship at Northwestern Kellogg School of Business
“In The Evolution of Products & Packaging, Matthew Wright provides a first-hand account of the market and consumer shifts that have transformed our industry. Furthermore, he outlines a vision for how we can make better, sustainable and more innovative products and packaging through a data-driven approach. This is a must read for both students and experienced professionals alike.”

“Specright has exceeded our expectations on value to the process and the business. Our pilot deployment improved cycle time by >60%.”

What If We Lived In A World Without Waste?
As humans, our lives are governed by constraints.
We only have so much time.
We only have so much money.
Our planet only has so many resources.
Today, people – and companies – want to be sustainable. But there’s a gap between ambition and action. At Specright, we believe in empowering people with the data to close the gap between ambition and action when it comes to sustainability. With a spec-first approach to managing products and packaging, companies can eliminate waste across their business.
Free Human Capital
Too many talented people are chasing data instead of taking action. By giving teams the right tools and data, they can spend less time managing data and more time innovating.
Remove the Choice Between Sustainability and Profitability
We believe the dilemma between making sustainable or profitable products is a false one. When people and companies have end-to-end supply chain data, they can optimize for sustainability at any phase of the product life cycle – or stage of the supply chain – to drive not only sustainability but profitability as well. We imagine a world where companies can be profitable and sustainable and consumers can buy affordable and sustainable products.
Get Things Right Every Time
Most companies budget for “allowable waste” – the concept that mistakes will happen and products or materials will have to be thrown away. We believe that when your supply chain partners have access to live, accurate data, these mistakes can not only be avoided, but eliminated altogether.

Our constraints remind us that everything in life is precious.

And with more access to information, we can ensure what’s good for our business is also good for the world.
The Specright Credo
Our credo reflects our values, aspirations, and most importantly, our promise to customers.
We love what we do
We positively engage with those who need us
We look to problems and challenges as opportunities
We will be active learners
We will work to simplify the complex
Success will allow our customers to make amazing things
