Per Will Cantrell, Senior Principal, “NOVA began our relationship with Agile Frameworks almost two years ago. After careful consideration, we invested in the MetaField system to best equip our personnel and operations with innovative, industry-leading tools to reduce paperwork, increase efficiency and most importantly, to bring greater value to our clients, while making our technical field and laboratory staff’s job a little easier. Agile’s real time digital reporting platform and communication system greatly increases the speed and ease by which field and laboratory data can be assembled, organized and conveyed to engineering, management and administrative staff. The system also provides a highly valued platform for deliverable repository and Client distribution, which is quick and user-friendly not only for internal NOVA staff, but for the benefit of our direct Clients and project collaborators. Overall, NOVA values our partnership with Agile Frameworks, and we are confident that our investment in MetaField has enhanced NOVA’s ability to remain an industry leader in the markets we serve.”
