Business Issue / Challenge

Southern Earth Sciences, Inc. (SESI) needed to implement a technology solution that would improve their efficiency and profitability in construction materials testing department.


MetaField’s mobile functionality allows field techs to enter data right on site using tablets. The on-site data entry eliminates the need to fill out paper forms and give to administrative staff to recreate for reports.


MetaField easily reduces reporting time by 30-40% just by cutting out recreating paper logs to generate reports. With the improved efficiencies, SESI wants to implement MetaField into other parts of their business.

Sesi Streamlines Construction


It all started about four years ago, when the geotechnical engineering manager at Southern Earth Sciences, Inc. (SESI) came back from a GBA conference. He brought the idea of a technology solution that would help improve their efficiency in construction materials testing to SESI’s corporate team…

"Each year as people are getting comfortable with it, we’re implementing in in new ways. We’re definitely going to keep working towards having our entire system working off MetaField."
