At last — complete safe work packs with no missing pages
When work packs are printed and manually distributed, key information often goes missing, with no way of keeping track of the pack’s contents.
This results in potentially unsafe work, or at least time wasted chasing down the missing sheets.
With Nutshell Apps, you have a full work pack available in the palm of your hand; none of the information can go missing, and you can update it whenever you like as processes naturally change.
Louder for those at the back — work packs that update automatically
Perhaps the only thing more dangerous than missing information is out-of-date or inaccurate information, and it’s no wonder work packs go out of date when you’re dealing with hundreds of pages of A4 and information that changes on the daily.
With Nutshell, you can update documentation then publish everywhere, so everyone from site worker to back office will have the latest plans. You can even configure work packs to be updated automatically with daily reporting, streamlining planning administration even further.
Our Works Planning toolkits — free with a Nutshell subscription
Very rarely do Nutshell customers settle for just one app — once they discover what can be achieved on the platform, they soon want to do everything on Nutshell! That’s why we’ve bundled together our most popular Engineering Works Planning apps in the following toolkits…
Bridge communication between site-based teams and back office
Planners rely heavily on the reporting from site teams to move forward with the project, but strained communication between teams on site, not to mention the disconnect with back office, means these reports rarely arrive on time or in an optimal format.
In a survey by Cornerstone Projects LTD, 35% of respondents reported not having the full information about a project as the most common reason for delays and going over budget.
With Nutshell, each team has its own handheld reporting suite with workflows that populate key construction planning documents, so all essential processes can be managed in one place; complete project visibility with no detective work required.
Make reporting quick and easy for everyone
Part of the reason you don’t have the support or consideration from site workers is that you make their life harder — you’re asking for all these reports, but nobody has the time or patience to fill them in.
Nutshell makes frontline reporting hassle-free. All forms and checklists are available in the palm of your hand, with autocompletes and data validation to ensure you’re only submitting data that’s accurate and recognised by the system. These reports are then submitted instantly, without having to hunt down the relevant person on site!
Trusted in planning and documentation
Nutshell is trusted by engineering industry giants such as Siemens, Murphy, Systra, and Network Rail to name but a few. We’ve improved frontline reporting and reduced data processing time and costs to ensure work is delivered safely, on time, and on budget.
Prevent duplication of effort by pushing and pulling data from reports and documentation
Another reason site workers hate reporting is they’re constantly writing the same information over and over. This leads to skipped reports or leaving sections blank.
According to a survey from Levelset, construction businesses are losing more than 1 full day of work every week to inefficiency, with 85% of respondents spending more than 1/4 of their time tracking & reporting on project progress.
Nutshell allows you to pull information from documentation or other reports to pre-populate fields, significantly reducing the time it takes to fill out reports and with no manual data handling risks.
All forms, reports, and inspections...in a nutshell.
