Digicon was formed by combining the resources of two companies, W2 Consultants Ltd and Consoft International.  This partnership resulted in the unique focus of state-of-the art specification documents for which W2 Consultants was known with the capability of integrating the latest in technological advancements into specification development for which Consoft International was known - an alliance unparalleled in our industry.  This unique association is the hallmark of  Digicon Information Inc.'s position in the commercial construction industry.

W2 Consultants Ltd.(1973 - 1996) was known for the development of master specification systems such as SPECTEXT in the USA and Conspec, now the Canadian Master Specification (CMS), and Minispec in Canada.  W2 Consultant's reputation for excellence in developing specification products was widely recognized across North America and continues to influence Digicon's vision to remain the provider of high quality documents that reflect the latest in current industry standards.

ConSoft International (1992 - 1996) was known for specialty software applications for the construction document industry. The development of  "macros" and later "Specnique" ensured that the CMS remained at the forefront of technological advancements as well as industry writing standards. The latest advancement, "BIMdrive", a software written specifically for the writing of specifications, allows the industry to enter the BIM environment.  The CMS continues to be the source document although the software has the ability to accommodate other master templates.

With a continuing commitment to stay at the forefront of the commercial construction documentation industry, Digicon maintains active memberships on numerous association technical committees.
