Successfully Meet Demanding Customer Requirements

Quality management for road construction relies heavily on field inspection, field testing and laboratory testing activities which can be performed by the contractor and third party testing services companies. These inspections and tests are required to confirm compliance with the relevant specifications and for customer acceptance. Therefore they can impact significantly on the construction project schedule. Timely access to this data can be difficult as it is collected by multiple individuals from different organizations across large job sites.

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 your project inspection and testing activities delivers standardization, efficiency gains, and quality improvements resulting in increased profitability.
