MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – October 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 Hurt & Proffitt, Inc. has selected its Agile Frameworks’ MetaField® solution to automate field data collection and lab testing processes and streamline client reporting.
Based in Lynchburg, VA with four offices across the state, Hurt & Proffitt is a civil engineering and surveying firm that also provides environmental consulting, construction materials testing, geotechnical engineering and GIS services. The firm serves a variety of market sectors including municipalities, utilities, institutional and commercial.
Hurt & Proffitt wants to continuously improve their client service and knew that their paper form data collection process for their geotechnical services and construction materials testing was not going to help them do this. They decided to see what kind of solution they could create on their own using their own IT staff, but quickly found that it was going to be too big of a task. After doing some research—even looking at what several of their competitors were using—Hurt & Proffitt felt that Agile Frameworks and the MetaField solution was the best fit for the work they perform on behalf of their clients.
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 manage project specifications, schedule, dispatch, test, collect and assemble results to accurately deliver information to clients in real time.
“The further we travel to do work, the harder it is to get paperwork back to our offices,” said Matt Leslie, chief financial officer, Hurt & Proffitt. “With MetaField, we have the ability to submit the data directly into the system which will minimize the impact of travel time for technicians and it will shorten the time to get information to our clients. We can provide the same high level of service for a project two miles from an office as we can for a project 200 miles from an office.”
Hurt & Proffitt also sees opportunities to use MetaField in other areas of their business such as their environmental consulting and civil engineering groups, which both do field inspections.
“Legacy manual processes that can’t support the productivity and operational visibility needed to serve their clients impede many engineering organizations,” said Bob Tuttle, Agile Frameworks CEO. “With MetaField, Hurt & Proffitt now has the technology foundation for growth and improved communication with its staff and clients.”
