We believe that on most routine, repetitive and frequent tasks, the introduction of unit priced commercial terms drives reduction of cost and advances in technology and innovation. SampleServe and our clients are focused on driving the development of secure, accurate and efficient environmental data.
The SampleServe solution is built on a simplified workflow that eliminates traditional bottlenecks and errors, integrates field and laboratory data, and reduces the level of effort by project and field personnel.
SampleServe users are finding reductions in costs across the board from saving time setting up projects, sampling in the field, logging samples in the lab to generating professional graphics and reports.
When a type of work becomes repetitive and is easily divided into semi-equal units, the work eventually becomes a commodity. For instance no reasonable contractor would ever consider hiring a roofer under a “time and materials” contract. The reason, most roofers use a piece of technology called a “nail gun” so they can install roofs faster and increase profit margins. Under a “time and materials” contract, the nail gun would mean less revenue and so a manual hammer and nail would likely remain the default tool used.
Using a time and materials contract, means that speed and efficiency enhancing technology for tasks will likely not be adopted or at minimum delayed as long as possible. However, most consultants are happy with the fixed price reimbursement as it will actually allow them to increase their profit margin through the adoption of time saving work practices and various technological advancements related to completing the work (like SampleServe). The potential for higher profits drives efficiency, innovation, and technological advancement.
Understandably, our clients who are using an enterprise level system for technical or financial management are reluctant to add more cost by integrating a new solution. SampleServe makes it easy, there are no up-front costs, no subscription, or ongoing fees. Our clients pay only when they use the application as they sample.
Seamless access enhances communication, early detection of field/data discrepancies and accelerated decision making.
Our clients who have enterprise level data management systems appreciate the simplicity of use and high adoption rates by their project and field personnel. Integration with enterprise data management systems is effective and efficient with simplified electronic file transfers
The SampleENV platform is an excellent tool for managing, scheduling, coordinating sampling during Phase II due diligence projects. Historical data is easily uploaded, then augmented by new data during field investigations and transaction. It can then also seamlessly transition within SampleServe for additional ongoing work and sampling if needed.
