Benchmark Materials and Suppliers Based on Real Data

Departments of Transportation have a need to assess the suitability and quality of construction materials for use in road building. When operating their own laboratories they face the same challenges as all Construction Materials Testing Laboratories. Additionally there is a need to ensure that the data collected is stored in a way that makes it easily accessible when and where it is required to monitor the quality of a construction project and performance of the contractor.

Replacing your existing disparate paper and software systems with a centralized solution from Spectra QEST enables business process improvements in the running of field inspection, testing and laboratory operations as well as enabling the sharing of quality data and reports between all project stakeholders. You can streamline laboratory and field testing operations, eliminate duplicate data entry and significantly reduce report turnaround time.

A Spectra QEST solution for managing inspection and testing activities delivers standardization, efficiency gains and quality improvements.
