Krinkle Spills w/ Surface Sampling
Krinkle Spills w/ Surface Sampling makes sharing an overall project report with your customers a point of pride. With one click, the system can generate a comprehensive spill report, making it very easy for your clients (and you!) to see all pertinent data in the ongoing project, right down the level of sample chemistry and receptor specifics.

Beyond the view of a single project, the system allows a company to manage all of its projects companywide. This is because Krinkle Spills w/ Surface Sampling acts as a smart, multi-project file cabinet. It allows its users to look up and review, right on their mobile device, all projects, sample points and surface samples in an easy to view method. The system can even translate the lab limits (e.g. BTEX) and compare them to your field data (e.g. xylenes) in a way that can tell them when their field data correlates to lab limits. This helps field workers know when to stop sampling and wait for the official lab data.
In addition to Krinkle Spills w/ Surface Sampling’s ability to guide and track the full history of an ongoing spill project, clients also like to know what you did each day at their project site. It keeps them informed daily when you visit their locations and does so in a highly professional and “proof-of-work” manner. Krinkle’s Daily Spill Record form allows you to report your work each day, including travel times, times on-site, tagged photos relevant to that day’s work, field notes, and recommendations. In addition, when your Daily Spill Record form is used on any day in which surface sampling and chemistry testing are performed, Krinkle Spills w/ Surface Sampling automatically fills in a section of that report with that surface sampling data. In other words, the section of the overall project report accomplished on that day is automatically placed into the daily report. Finally, all reports can be run in Excel, Word or PDF format.

Krinkle Spills w/ Surface Sampling guides environmental specialists through recording spill details and estimating a spill’s released volume, recovered volume, impacted area and more. Record spill receptors (i.e. wetlands, groundwater, wildlife, Right-of-Way, etc.) with ease and quickly assess receptor locations and impacts straight from your mobile device. These records are supported with Proof-of-Work elements including GPS position (from your mobile device or an external GPS) and photographs. In addition, all photos are date, time and GPS stamped. Receptors, spill details, surface soil samples and more can all be reported on at the touch of a button, in a number of professional reports that any client would appreciate. The system guides environmental specialists through recording details on spills, site spill visits, surface sample chemistry (composite or discreet) and more. Additionally, Krinkle Spills w/ Surface Sampling includes auto-naming for labeling of sample containers, which eliminates incorrect or redundant labeling.
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 are 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!)
Photos taken with Krinkle Spills w/ Surface Sampling are automatically stamped with the date, time, GPS position, project name, site name as well as any other “proof-of-work” or project critical data you require. Incorporating these well-stamped photos into the surface sampling documentation you give to your clients illustrates to your clients that the process was conducted at the right location, during the correct time and followed a high-quality and rigorous approach. This greatly strengthens their position in a government audit and your position as their “Go-To” service provider. While Krinkle Spills w/ Surface Sampling has the ability to collect your GPS location straight from your mobile device (iOS/Android), it can also allow you to enter external, high precision GPS data for more accurate positioning of your sample points on Google Earth and ESRI.
Krinkle Spills w/ Surface Sampling understands how real users work in the field. It guides field workers step-by-step through their work, even when their work occurs in an ever-changing order. While the system acts as a guided process, it does not limit its users by forcing them to complete their work in a specific order. Whether a user chooses to assess the details of the spill, comment on any receptor or initiate a new sample point, the system flow is effortless for the user. The mobile app demonstrates incredible flexibility by allowing your crews to add surface sample points and other data in the order that best matches their typical workflow. This drastically speeds up the surface sampling process and significantly reduces the data collection burden while increasing its accuracy. It also makes reporting a one-button-touch, easy task.
Krinkle Spills w/ Surface Sampling stands on its own and requires no other system to get your operation fully functional, reportable and auditable. Like all products from Krinkleapps.com, it can also be integrated with other systems if ever required, due to its comprehensive set of RESTful APIs.
