      Scott M. McCasland, Vice President-Quality, Atlantic Testing Laboratories

    • ElmTree has streamlined the report production process and allowed us to deliver reports to clients with minimal turn around time. The web-based reporting has been valuable and appreciated by our clients. Technician scheduling and management of laboratory samples has been more efficient and accessible to our project managers. It’s been great to work with people who understand the business and have been willing to customize reports to meet out needs. The ElmTree staff has been fantastic to work with!

      Steven M. Elliott, Professional Engineer, Materials Testing Consultants

    • ElmTree isn’t just about saving your business time and money. It’s about making your life easier and your clients happier. It’s about taking a finite number of hours in the workweek and ensuring they’re spent on projects, not paperwork.

      Cheryl Wilkerson, Program Director, ElmTree System

    • ElmTree has made our reporting and tracking of projects a simple process again. Our staff can log into the program from the office or home day or night and can dispatch technicians after hours. The programmers and staff have been a pleasure to work with and can make changes and customize our reports in a matter of minutes in most cases. Our firm looked at multiple programs and LIMS products and we chose ElmTree because it was written and implemented by programmers and staff in a Geotechnical Engineering Firm that knows our business inside and out.

      M. Brian Johnson, President/CEO, Soil Consultants, Inc.

    • ElmTree has made our construction materials testing group and our accounting group much more efficient. Our managers spend much less time checking test reports because of the confidence they have in the data assimilated by ElmTree. Additionally, because of the billing function provided by ElmTree, we were able to eliminate one person in our accounting group, which more than offset the expense of operating ElmTree. ElmTree has been a great addition to our business!

      Darrell Flatt, President, ETTL Engineers & Consultants Inc.

    • Since implementing ElmTree, we have been able to standardize our reporting process throughout the company at large. Due to dispatch being integrated into our system, communication has become streamlined and is now moving at a much higher speed. Daily, accounting is entered at the report level and invoices are distributed with minimal effort. The ElmTree staff are very committed and always available to assist us with any questions we have with the system and its features. Most of all, we now have the ability to assist all of our corporate locations remotely.

      Kevin D. Williams, Corporate ElmTree Representative, Fugro USA Land, Inc.

    • Our company has recognized a decrease in overall costs of between one and two percent since using the ElmTree System. The time to calculate and prepare reports for signature and issuing at the peak season has dropped from five work days to one work day. For client invoices, time required for preparing and inputting into the accounting system has decreased from one work week each month of clerical and management staff to one work day.
