Accelerating Digital advancements in Rail

UKRIA 2017 and the accelerating digital advancements in rail tech

UKRIA2017 Mobile Technology Award

Nutshell Apps ‘Mobile Technology’ Finalists

As the UK Rail Industry Awards 2017 is fast approaching, we’re gearing up for a showcase of impressive pioneering projects and innovative technological advancements in rail. We’re thrilled to be recognised for the work we do within the rail industry, and are proud to stand alongside the shortlisted ‘Mobile Technology’ category finalists.

Our shortlisted project highlights a suite of apps built for and with Network Rail. By tackling processes including hand/arm vibration; work permits; site safety and observation protocols, these apps will alter the efficiency and productivity of the teams and departments that use them by reducing the time spent waiting for sign-offs, time consuming interdepartmental processes and lost or damaged paperwork.

By reducing manual entry, increasing response time and reducing downtime, the introduction of mobile apps is revolutionising the way in which front-line workers do their jobs by creating safer, efficient and effective ways to work.
