Harris & Sloan Drives Workflow Automation and Digital Transformation with Agile Frameworks
California structural and mechanical engineering firm deploys MetaField to streamline client reporting and gain cost and time efficiencies
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – May 21, 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 Harris & Sloan Consulting has selected its Agile Frameworks’ MetaField® solution to streamline field data collection and to automate client reporting.
MetaField is a subscription-based, multi-tenant Software-as-a-Solution (SaaS) platform from Agile Frameworks that streamlines complex workflows for greater productivity and profitability. It provides a single application to schedule, dispatch, test, collect and assemble results to accurately deliver information to clients in real time.
Based in California with three offices across the state, Harris & Sloan is a structural and mechanical engineering firm with a reputation for helping clients reduce construction costs and maximize efficiency. In addition to traditional engineering services, Harris & Sloan also provides forensic property loss evaluations/analyses of structural/ non-structural damage as well as cause and origin of structural and building envelope failures. The company provides technical assistance to adjusters and attorneys in support of Property Loss, Builders Risk Claims, and Construction Defect.
Prior to adopting MetaField, Harris & Sloan relied on spreadsheets to track the collection of data from field service technicians and used manual operations such as mail merge and macros to create summary report letters to send to clients. As its client base began to grow, the use of spreadsheets and manual non-automated processes started to put a stranglehold on efficiency and profitability.
“Using MetaField gives us greater efficiency via automation and is scalable to meet the needs of our growing operations,” said Chris Antonucci, P.E., Principal, Harris & Sloan. “With MetaField, key data points are automatically configured into our summary reports which we can easily track at any time, streamlining the entire data collection and reporting process.”
The adoption of MetaField also enabled Harris & Sloan to better allocate resources. Before implementing MetaField, Harris & Sloan had to manually check to make sure the correct data was entered into its project accounting system. With MetaField, the data is automatically entered into its accounting system with valuable labor resources re-allocated to more strategic activities to support the company.
“From data collection, to analysis, to final client reporting, engineering firms understand efficiency is key to remaining competitive in a fast-moving market,” said Bob Tuttle, Agile Frameworks CEO. “With MetaField, Harris & Sloan is transforming its reporting process from manual data entry to workflow automation, resulting in improved efficiencies and productivity. We are pleased to add Harris & Sloan to a growing list of customers in California that are choosing Agile Frameworks as their trusted technology partner.”
