RubySketch: PlusSpec

The Australian Business Award for Technology Innovation recognises leading products and services that provide innovative technological solutions for new and existing market needs.

Established in 2010, RubySketch is an Australian owned and operated start-up that focuses on connecting design professionals, the construction industry and building product manufacturers. They have created PlusSpec, a software platform that combines 3D CAD, building information modelling, virtual design & construction, estimating, real product integration and integrated project delivery.

RubySketch created PureSpec with the belief that CAD modelling was only allowing users to implement 3D modelling as a way to create 2D plans. In contrast, PureSpec was designed to make design faster and simpler, with a core ethos of using communication as a catalyst for improved efficiency and reduced waste. PlusSpec works towards the maximisation of 3D virtual design and construction models by adopting a shared, comprehensive 3D model. This facilitates improved understanding among all main project stakeholders, eliminating deciphering or interpretation from planning.

PlusSpec aims to strike the perfect balance between design and construction by offering a user-friendly, intuitive software that allows users to design whilst being able to simultaneously visualize and develop construction methodology. By using real products from real manufacturers and allowing users to create their own, the software understands client intent, accounts for variables such as weight and strength, and reduces physical waste. This approach is designed to deliver real cost savings to users, falling in line with RubySketch’s belief that 2D plans are quickly becoming antiquated by adopting a committed 3D solution.

RubySketch have been recognised with a Technology Innovation Award in the Australian Business Awards 2016 for the development of PlusSpec.

The Australian Business Awards are the regional chapter of an integrated, hierarchical leadership program conducted on a national and international level. Eligible organisations from each region are invited to participate in the international chapter of the program at The World Business Awards. Conducted annually and currently in the second year of its international launch, The World Business Awards seeks to engage with the world’s business, innovation and technology leaders through a global recognition and knowledge building initiative that is underpinned by the program’s established framework. The program engages with organisations worldwide to benchmark the full spectrum of their products, services and initiatives and to review their business performance. The cycle culminates in the recognition and celebration of organisations that implement world-class business initiatives and industry leading products and services on a prominent and far-reaching scale. All entries must be entered in the regional chapter where the organisation is based.

Organisational participation includes private companies, publicly listed companies, multinational subsidiaries, not-for-profit organisations, non-government organisations, educational institutions, franchise systems, partnerships, government departments, government agencies, local government and statutory bodies operating in Australia.

Initiatives can include but are not limited to projects, programs, processes, systems, technologies, developments, ventures and undertakings.

Entries are assessed utilising a robust and dynamic framework to ensure that the assessment process is pertinent and objective. The World Business Awards Framework (WBA Framework) is utilised as a structured model of assessment that enables the participating organisations to be benchmarked against world class performance standards. The Framework consists of specialised assessment modules pertaining to the evaluation criteria for each of the award categories. The criteria and sub-criteria provide a robust set of requirements that are used as the methodology for benchmarking and learning among the participating organisations.

Organisations that participate are provided with the unique opportunity to benchmark themselves against the top performers globally. The recipients are acknowledged for their achievements and recognised as the elite of their industry earning a place amongst a distinguished group by having their products, projects, initiatives, contributions and achievements recognised on a prominent and far-reaching scale. The program provides the ultimate platform for building knowledge, increasing brand awareness, equity, loyalty and retention through increased exposure, recognition and prestige. This establishes a valuable resource that can be used extensively to create opportunities for publicity, positive organisational profiling and heightened brand awareness within the respective industries both nationally and internationally.
