GBE Manufacturer/Supplier Services Update

GBE Manufacturer/Supplier Services Update

GBE is here to serve designers and specifiers, in order to do that we need the support of manufacturers to provide the information that the designers and specifiers need.

Website content and promotional literature is usually a mixture of promotional and technical information that takes time to assimilate into designs and convert into specifications.

GBE extracts the essence of this product information to make the most it and turn it into:

GBE Product Page: linking all the parts: Manufacturer, Suppliers, Installers, GBE LitAudit, GBE PASS, GBE MASS, GBE Echo, GBE Product Data Sheet, GBE Product Passport, GBE Outline and GBE Robust Specification, GBE BEST, GBE BEACoN, GBE DoRR.
