Minneapolis, Dec. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Agile Framework®, a leader in integrated field and laboratory management software for the engineering services industry, today announced that FMG Engineering has improved field data report delivery since implementing the Agile Framework. And have improved workflow capabilities. Metafield® Solutions.
Based in South Dakota, FMG Engineering is a multi-disciplinary consulting firm with civil engineering, geotechnical engineering, surveying, environmental and construction materials testing services. The firm sought to implement a digital solution to improve report turnaround time, report accuracy and efficiency in the field.
“It was time to replace our outdated and cumbersome system of paper field reports,” said Alex Fischer, Senior Geotechnical Engineer and Vice President at FMG Engineering. “Spreadsheets and forms were time consuming to write and often delayed completion. When going through the evaluation process, we chose Metafields because of the depth of functionality. Other platforms were a bit basic and didn’t allow for customization.”
Since implementing MetaField, FMG Engineering has seen an improvement in its report turnaround time from 4-5 days to 24 hours. Historically, reporting lagged behind field work. Metafields allows them to immediately incorporate test results into reports, which are ready for review and delivery the same day. FMG Engineering has also increased its reporting efficiency by using distribution email lists to optimize its workflow capabilities and processes.
“At Agile Frameworks, our extensive forms library is built from years of experience with customer needs in mind,” said Joel Smolarek, Senior Solutions Consultant, Agile Frameworks. “FMG Engineering has gained tremendous value by customizing report forms, especially their daily reports, to meet their specific business needs. We are proud to partner with the highly knowledgeable and engaged team at FMG Engineering, to elevate the delivery standards.
“With MetaField, our organization’s capacity has increased,” Fischer said. “We can now work on more projects because our technicians or project managers are not spending 30-60 minutes each day of transcription time. Overall, the system will allow us to get more done with less manpower.”
