About The Module

Krinkle Soil Sampling w/ Depth Samples® is a comprehensive mobile app (iOS & Android) and reporting system for tracking soil sampling projects, including delineation through depth sampling.

Krinkle Soil Sampling w/ Depth Samples® allows your company to add your client’s governing agency and their allowable ground chemistry limits (like BTEX, individual acceptable xylene limit, etc.), which are required for that project. Then, as your crew establishes its sample points via boreholes and grabs the individual depth samples, the software guides the user through each process step. This includes industry-standard naming and labeling of the sample points and depth samples, collecting soil characteristics, and even the field chemistry results. It also acts as an intelligent data filing system, allowing users to see all projects, their sample points, and all depth samples of every sample point in an easy-to-view method on their mobile device. The system can even translate the lab limits (e.g., BTEX) and compare them to your field data (e.g., xylenes) to tell them when their field data correlates to lab limits. This unique ability helps field workers know when to stop sampling and wait for the official lab data.

Comprehensive Soil Sampling Reporting

Krinkle Soil Sampling w/ Depth Samples® showcases several professional, client-facing reports, all of which can be run in Excel, Word, or PDF format, at the touch of a button. Krinkle Soil Sampling w/ Depth Samples® makes sharing Daily Visit Record reports and comprehensive project reports with your customers a point of pride. With one click, the system can generate a comprehensive soil sampling project report, making it very easy for your clients (and you!) to see all pertinent data in the ongoing project, right down to the level of depth sample chemistry and soil characteristics.

Reducing Human Error at Every Step of the Process

A "Guided Process" is Much More Than a Simple Form

The system supports all sample point types, such as test pits, background samples, base & wall samples (post-excavation), borehole samples, and more. After the initial depth sample input, the app remembers the previously input data within the same horizon, like soil type (coarse or fine), gradation, grain size, and more, thus preventing the user from performing redundant entries. Of course, when the answers change, the user can make those changes effortlessly. This saves time and streamlines the depth sample data collection process. Additionally, Krinkle Soil Sampling w/ Depth Samples® comes included with all of the internationally accepted naming and labeling conventions for borehole samples and depth sample containers, which eliminates incorrect or redundant labeling.

Krinkle Soil Sampling w/ Depth Samples® Data is Integrated with the Daily Visit Record Module

The Daily Visit Record & Report

In addition to Krinkle Soil Sampling w/ Depth Samples® ability to guide and track the entire history of an ongoing soil sampling and ground remediation project, your clients will also appreciate being kept up to date on work accomplished on each of your daily visits to their project sites. Krinkle Daily Visit Record® and the report it creates will keep management well informed in a highly professional and "proof-of-work" manner. Krinkle Daily Visit Record® allows you to report your work each day, including travel times, times on-site, GPS, date and time stamped photos relevant to that day's work, field notes, and recommendations. However, when your daily visit record refers to a soil sampling project underway that day, Krinkle Soil Sampling w/ Depth Samples® automatically fills in a section of that report with soil sampling data collected on that day. In other words, a division of the overall soil sampling project accomplished on that day is automatically placed into the daily visit record report.

Data Visibility at Your Fingertips

Google Earth & ESRI Compatibility

Krinkle Soil Sampling w/ Depth Samples® is fully integrated with Google Earth, allowing users to easily and quickly create a geospatial view of user work (i.e., “Work Crumbing “). All sample point data, including sample point images and other project data, are fully integrated to Google Earth for easy viewing and .KMZ file sharing (which can be easily converted to ESRI files). Simply by pressing a button, you can request .KMZ files for any period of time on any project (or multiple projects!).

Comprehensive Proof-of-Work

Date, Time, and GPS Stamped Photos

All photos taken within Krinkle Soil Sampling w/ Depth Samples® are automatically stamped with the date, time, GPS position, user, client, and other “proof-of-work” elements specific to the photo taken. Incorporating “proof-of-work” photos into your documentation illustrates every aspect of a future auditor’s questions, making your organization fully audit-ready. While Krinkle Soil Sampling w/ Depth Samples® can collect your GPS location straight from your mobile device (iOS & Android), it also allows you to enter external, high-precision GPS positions (from Trimble devices, for example) if your data requires that level of accuracy.

We Work The Way You Work

Non-Linear Data Capture

Krinkle Soil Sampling w/ Depth Samples® understands how real users work in the field. It guides field workers step-by-step through their work, even when it occurs in an ever-changing order. While the system acts as a guided process, it does not limit users by forcing them to complete their work in a specific order. Whether a user chooses to grab soil from multiple depth samples in a single borehole or decides to move between different sample points, the app's workflow is effortless for the user. The mobile app demonstrates incredible flexibility by allowing your crews to add depth samples and sample points in the order that best matches their unique/chosen workflow. This drastically speeds up the soil sampling process and significantly reduces the data collection burden while increasing accuracy.
