“Quality management guides everything we do and the newest version of TerraGo Edge will help us eliminate data entry errors and capture mobile inspection data efficiently and correctly the first time,” said Matthew Colvin, junior team lead, Corrosion Service. “TerraGo’s agile development teams have worked together with us, listened to our ideas and rapidly turned them into valuable features, versus waiting months or years for a new version. For our fast-paced engineering projects, this translates directly into continuous quality improvement, service innovation and successful projects for our customers.”

“We work closely with our customers as part of our agile development process so we can deliver customer-driven innovation with each and every release of TerraGo Edge,” said Dave Basil, vice president of product development at TerraGo. “In this release, we were able to provide measurement tools and quality assurance features that we think are the best in the market. It’s not because we designed them internally, but based on the assessment of our end users, who tested them under real-life working conditions and gave us the feedback and insights you can’t get from sitting at a keyboard, allowing us to design the optimal user experience.”
