Agile Frameworks Announces New Leadership and MetaField Expansion Plans

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – September 14, 2023 Agile Frameworks®, the category leading provider in integrated field and lab management SaaS solutions for Construction Materials Testing (CMT) and wider geotechnical engineering services in North America, today announced Alicia Schimke as its new Chief Technology Officer.

Alicia most recently was the Senior VP of Information Technology at Augeo, a global leader in engagement platform technologies and data-driven experiences, where she led large scale architectural assessments and software projects to modernize applications for scale and growth.

She started her career in software development at Securian Financial before managing application development teams at Ackmann & Dickenson. She then joined MotivAction as the Director of Software Engineering, which was subsequently acquired by Augeo.

“We are building a clear category leader with our product led growth strategy,” said David Gagne, President and CEO of Agile Frameworks. “Alicia has a proven track record of success when it comes to accelerating growth and modernizing platforms to meet current and future market needs. We are thrilled to have her lead our technology teams as we continue to launch market-specific product innovation.”

Agile Frameworks’ flagship product, MetaField®, is the industry leader in optimizing field and lab workflow for North American Engineering firms. MetaField provides a single application to manage project specifications, schedule, dispatch, test, collect and assemble results to accurately deliver information to clients in real time. MetaField is embraced by firms who want to create significant cost and time efficiencies to scale operations, protect their data and meet high-security standards, and deliver industry leading client service and project insights.

With over 15 years of experience and over 100 clients, the Agile Frameworks team is focused on deeply understanding their clients’ needs and delivering solutions to meet those needs. So far in 2023, the team has delivered 14 product releases with zero downtime, including more than 30 customer requested enhancements. 

Year to date, clients have experienced 100% uptime and access to MetaField, which is hosted in Microsoft Azure infrastructure. The company seeks to maintain at least an expected availability of 99.98%, which roughly translates to no more than one hour of unscheduled downtime each year.
