Customer Spotlight on River Valley Testing Corporation
Topic: Return on Investment (ROI) for MetaField®
River Valley Testing Corporation (RVT) has been a MetaField customer for over two years, having signed agreements at the end of 2013. The company has been a rapid adopter of the solution and the staff is very engaged with the team at Agile Frameworks.
George Barker, an owner at RVT, says “MetaField was the first tactic implemented in our corporate Operational Excellence initiative.” He estimates that they have received a Return on Investment (ROI) of “easily five (5X) times, and maybe up to 10 times” and that the ROI is “really obvious.”
In terms of the benefits, George says there are many: “There are multiple benefits, including techs having access to all of the field data, engineers seeing real-time field data, data validation as the data is entered, a significant reduction in duplication of effort, less paper being shuffled back and forth, much more space in the file cabinets, and overall efficiency improvements companywide including the elimination of a clerical FTE. There are also little things like being able to click on an embedded link in the project information that brings up the job site on a Google map. MetaField enables us to do our jobs better, with less rework and more efficiency.”
