Geotechnical and Construction Consulting Startup Insight Group Streamlines Engineering Workflows with Agile Frameworks
Newly formed firm deploys MetaField for more efficient data tracking and automated reporting in the field
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Jan. 22, 2019 – Agile Frameworks®, the leading provider of collaborative, cloud-based corporate, field, and lab information management enabling Profitable Engineering® for the construction and engineering services sector, today announced Insight Group, a recently formed geotechnical startup, has selected its flagship MetaField® solution which provides a single application to schedule, dispatch, test, collect and assemble results to accurately deliver information to clients in real time.
MetaField is a subscription-based Software-as-a-Solution (SaaS) platform from Agile Frameworks that streamlines complex workflows for greater productivity and profitability.
Headquartered in North Charleston, S.C., Insight Group delivers geotechnical engineering, materials testing, and environmental services supporting transportation, industrial, solid waste and commercial development markets.
The upstart, formed by experienced industry veterans in September 2018, has quadrupled its employee headcount in the first few months of operation, and expects to increase its headcount to nearly 30 employees by early 2019.
Insight Group’s collective experience of working within larger firms in the Tri-County region of South Carolina has provided the firm with a keen understanding of the technology needed to support its field technicians and better serve its clients. Key to that is a single workflow solution with mobile capabilities.
Prior to adopting MetaField, Insight Group’s concrete and field density testing engineers had to carry laptops and field books to site locations. Now, they just use their smartphones to access the MetaField mobile app for greater efficiency on the go.
“Our owner was familiar with MetaField, while others worked for companies that had experienced issues with homegrown workflow solutions, and/or had multiple systems to input data,” explained Kylie Page, construction consultant, Insight Group. “MetaField provides the one-stop shop solution we were looking for to handle field testing, reporting, and data collection – basically everything.” Page adds that having modern technology-based workflows in place is a boon to the firm’s recruiting practices, as it looks to onboard new “digitally native” engineering talent.
“We welcome Insight Group to our growing MetaField customer base,” said Bob Tuttle, Agile Frameworks CEO. “The Software-as-a-Service model makes it easy for organizations of all sizes – including startups such as Insight Group – to leverage MetaField to support mobile data collection, testing and reporting capabilities. We look forward to partnering with Insights Group to support its business as it grows.”
