Business Issue / Challenge

Arias Geoprofessionals needed speed, efficiency and standardization in the field and lab. They also wanted to differentiate themselves as a laboratory that produces quick and accurate results.

Solution

MetaField’s two-way communication allows the laboratory to populate the lab results, concrete mix designs, site contact information, and dispatch information as it’s received. With MetaField’s mobile data collection, data entry occurs at the time data is collected in the field and quickly flows through the process of QA, final edits, report signing and distribution. MetaField’s same-day reporting capabilities enable a project manager to view/review real-time results, provide quality control, generate and sign and deliver test reports electronically.

Results

MetaField allows Arias Geoprofessional team members real-time access to test results and the ability to create customized reports based on service location versus just by service date. The project teams experience simplified editing and review processes and their clients receive the fast and accurate results that they demand (within 24 hours and as quickly as 10 minutes). The speedy reporting has allowed contractors to accelerate their tasks and acceptance of critical portions their work without compromising QA/QC programs.

"The benefits [of MetaField] for me is that the editing and review process for reports is greatly simplified. For the client, they're getting the fast and accurate results that they demand. For both of us, we're dealing with today's data, not last week's data and that's a win for everybody.​"
