fluix success story
RTC’s principal conservator, Hannah Riley, had tackled big projects before; the conservation and display of the Princess Diana Collection and working on the Royal Collection at Hampton Court Palace as well as Kensington Palace in London. This project, however, was at a scale her company had never seen before, and she knew they needed help.Download Success Story (PDF)
"It’s not that this project would have been difficult without Fluix. It would have been impossible."
RTC’s initial system was rather old-fashioned: pen and paper. They used handwritten reports with annotated sketches for in-the-field documentation. This system of doing things, however, was outdated and inefficient. RTC was accustomed to doing four-to-six reports per month. This State project required over 6,000 reports to be completed within 11 months. With the budget and time frame for the project limited, RTC was forced to turn to a document management solution because it was the only way they could tackle this daunting task.
"Fluix gave us much greater control over the amount of time each report would require to complete. For this project, each extra minute spent per report would have translated into fifteen extra days of labor."
RTC ended up digitizing their document reporting, which made field data collection so seamless that it slashed their time per report to two minutes. RTC didn’t just complete the project; they streamlined their process by leveraging the potential of iPads and Fluix.
