Each year, the company provides geotechnical, materials testing, and environmental engineering services for thousands of projects across dozens of industries.
Ken Dalton, Chief Technology Officer at F&R, stated, "We have been researching the software market for quite some time to find the right solution, until now it simply did not exist. We are very excited about the benefits this product will bring to our operations. We expect to dramatically decrease the amount of time it takes to perform a field test, put the test results through quality control, send reports to our customers and issue invoices; all the while increasing accuracy at each stage of the testing/reporting life cycle. Having seen the product in use and knowing it's a proven solution we are confident that the team at Agile Frameworks can deliver."
