MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – June 5, 2018 – 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 Alaska Testlab has selected MetaField® to increase operational efficiencies of its construction materials testing and inspection services business.
A veteran and woman-owned small business, Alaska Testlab provides inspection services identified by the International Building Code, project plans and specifications, as well as field and laboratory testing for construction materials.
