MINNEAPOLIS, April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Braun Intertec, a leading provider of multidisciplinary environmental and geotechnical engineering services, is pleased to announce the launch of Agile Frameworks, LLC, a wholly owned information technology subsidiary that will target the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) marketplace.
The company is also announcing that Agile Frameworks, LLC, has acquired Systems Consulting Group (SCG), LLC, a technology consulting firm focused on the AEC market, to accelerate the growth of the new firm. The new company expects to employ 15 full-time staffers by the end of 2011.
The initial product and service offerings of the new company include MetaField™, a software as a service (SaaS) solution for automating field data collection; PAS™, a SaaS solution for streamlining the process of estimating, initiating and managing projects; and IntraEase™ and Braun Interport™, which are SaaS solution frameworks that enable collaboration with staff, customers and vendors. Agile Frameworks also will provide management and IT consulting, and managed services, including application management and hosting for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) vendors BST and Deltek, along with outsourced help desk services.
"We recognized some time ago there is a market in the ACE industry for our internally developed line of business applications for field data collection and project management," states Jon Carlson, CEO of Braun Intertec. "Agile Frameworks, LLC is the vehicle we are using to commercialize the intellectual property that our science, technology and engineering consultants developed from our extensive experience in the AEC industry."
Agile Frameworks will be led by Mike Anders, formerly president and CEO of SCG. "We bring a strong lineup of products and services to the AEC community on a local, regional and national basis. Agile Frameworks' consulting and SaaS offerings tie together and streamline field services and project management, to improve service delivery. Adds Anders, "Because technologies such as cloud computing and mobile applications are maturing rapidly, we see a great opportunity to provide software-enabled products and services that help improve profit margins and streamline the overall business process." Other members of the Agile Frameworks management team include Brian Hase, Chief Technology Officer; and Doug Bonestroo, Vice President of Business Development.
Agile Frameworks has been chosen to present at the upcoming FIATECH Technology Conference & Showcase in Chandler, Arizona, April 18-20.
