Pricing for Groundwater Sampling and Surface Water Sampling
There is no charge to use the mobile field app for groundwater sampling, soil sampling, and surface water sampling. There also is no charge to use the project management tool for scheduling events and lab communication.
The cost to use the report preparation features is based on the total number of samples collected. We charge $15.00 per sample collected. The number of analytical parameters, bottles filled, or labels printed doesn’t affect pricing. A sample is based on a unique sample ID collected on a unique date. Regardless of whether you subscribe to the reporting features, the project management tool and mobile sampling app are free, and all field sampling data can be downloaded from the platform as a simple excel file and pdf at no charge.
As an example; a typical gas station with 10 samples collected in a given month will cost $150 to access the report preparation features.
Once a sample has been paid for, the resulting data is available for inclusion in all reports from that point forward. You do not have to pay for that sample again. All historical lab and field data can be uploaded at no charge.
Discounts may be available for large volume sampling clients. Contact a representative to discuss.
We estimate that the mobile field app saves field technicians roughly 20% or their time on field sampling and data collection. The lab app is estimated to save labs about 10% of their overall lab labor costs on data entry and miss-key labor. We also estimate the project management tool reduces costs and increases the efficiency and communication of a Project Manager and we estimate we cut report preparation costs by about 80%, on most standard reports.
