The Architect's Source for Building Product Experts







Direct access to the experts behind the products

Our communication platform empowers design professionals and specifiers to connect with building product experts from location-specific manufacturers.

Search Building Product Experts

Searching through hundreds of manufacturer websites is a thing of the past. With Tect, you gain effortless access to building product experts and a short path to specific answers to your questions.


Filter by Project Location

It's hard to know which manufacturers to consider. With Tect, you can filter results by specific project location to see the companies and experts that are truly relevant to your project. 


Connect by Phone or Email

Design professionals initiate the conversation by Phone or Email, openly or veiled, from any device.


It's about nurturing authentic relationships

We're turning "product searching" into "people finding" for both the supply and demand sides of the building industry.

Partnering for change

We recently announced our strategic partnership with the American Institute of Architects to better understand the needs of their 90,000+ members as we endeavor to improve access to building product manufacturers and product content at the earliest stages of design.

Additional alliances are forming across the AEC community. Stay tuned...











It's time for a change

Based on research by the AIA, entitled "The Architect's Journey to Specification."

Gaining access to expert advice is a recurring challenge for architects

87% of architects want help from manufacturers at every project stage, yet 2 out of 3 give up because of the hassles associated with finding the right person in the right company.


Manufacturers who take the time to listen and serve build trust

Less than half of the architects surveyed are satisfied with the support they receive. They want timely answers from product category experts, not a sales pitch or sales pressure.


The next normal of the building industry requires early collaboration with manufacturers

Project teams who leverage the experience and wisdom of product category experts at the earliest stages of design will achieve superior outcomes with less effort.





There's a new way to market

Shift your focus to serving the clients that come to you early with active projects, rather than spending precious resources chasing down leads. We position your team to be easily found at the exact moment important product decisions are being made.


We're building the shortest path to your front door.

Get discovered easily

Design professionals don't know which markets you serve. With TectGeo™, you can define your territories by product category and sales rep, making it easier for decision makers to connect with your sales team based on proximity to their project location.


Access projects at the earliest stages of design

Tired of chasing opportunities only to arrive late to the decision table? With the TectApp®, we remove friction and open the lines of communication, allowing earlier engagement at the moment important product decisions are being made.


Build long-term, trusted relationships

Serving design professionals is quite different than selling to contractors. The TectAcademy is like a Master Class on serving design professionals, and gives your team the tools and insight to become a trusted product partner for years to come.
