Pipeline Workshops™: Specitup and Simpson Strong-Tie: Engaged Sponsors

Despite circumstances that are forcing most business conferences to be held virtually – those both larger and smaller than a Pipeline workshop™ – it is a measure of persistence and resolve that Pipeline Workshop™ No. 14 will occur, as scheduled, live and in-person, this week, at the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

It is also a testament to our sponsors.  We are fortunate to have Specitup and Simpson Strong-Tie as Pipeline Workshop™ sponsors, because not only do they stand for us under difficult circumstances in support of the teaching of Pipeline principles and disciplines, they also apply these principles and disciplines in their own operations and on behalf of their licensees and users.  And – they now do it together, as Simpson recently acquired Specitup.

Because they are implementors, not just proponents, Specitup and Simpson are particularly qualified to participate in the discussions, contribute to the RB Builders: Lessons from the Pipeline© business case exercises, and help to facilitate the Velocity Accelerators®.

They enhance the learning.


Specitup is an award-winning software solution for home builders to get homes to market faster with accurate and profitable selling prices.  Not an estimating or production program, Specitup is a new breed of software that includes plan/options/spec’ing management combined with comprehensive financial analysis.

Any builder that wants to shorten time to market, get deeper insight into profitability, and grow their business needs Specitup.

Specitup’s capabilities allow builder/users to create 7,000 options in seconds, spec the same plan differently by community, option up plans in hours, and analyze competitor offerings.

“If I can’t compete, Specitup has told me that ahead of time, and I wouldn’t have even bought the lot.”  (D Logan, Owner, Logan Homes)

“With Specitup I can add a new plan in a matter of hours. And now we don’t have to engage estimating until the house is actually sold.”  (Dan Kent, Owner Kent Homes)
