Froehling & Robertson, Inc.

Business Issue / Challenge

For Froehling & Robertson, the fast pace and digital nature of peer and partner interactions require rapid report dissemination. Reports required necessary signatures and credentials and needed to be easily accessed and understood by clients. And their teams needed flexible, mobile tools that can be adapted to specific building codes as well as project or individual client requirements.

Solution

MetaField provides the ability for Froehling & Robertson to create tailor-made forms for each type of inspection they provide. They can quickly create field inspection forms that step their inspectors through a comprehensive and detailed inspection process. For example, they have created a Masonry Inspection Activity form that guides the inspector through the details of masonry materials, construction tolerances, and pre-grout placement inspections.

Results

With MetaField, Froehling & Robertson consistently delivers quality work to their clients and they are able to prevent re-work due to missed steps or omitted information. The MetaField platform provides the ability to bridge the gap between building code and project requirements, and field inspection and data collection. It also allows them to create smart looking reports from this data to rapidly send to their clients.

"The feature I appreciate most is the ability to create tailor-made forms to meet the requirements of each of our detailed types of inspections…This helps us consistently deliver quality work to our clients and prevents re-work due to missed steps or omitted information."

– Dr. Gary Pasquarell, Director of Training
