Project Briefing Apps

Communicate daily briefings for health and safety or schedules of work with Nutshell’s mobile briefing apps. They’re all ready-built, 100% customisable to your workflow and come free with a Nutshell subscription…

What is a mobile briefing app?

Briefings provide a way of communicating daily activities across the workforce. Back-office planners will compile schedules of work, safe work packs, and safety-critical information that needs to be distributed to site workers in a way that’s clear and easy to reference throughout the project.

Daily briefing apps are designed to replace your paper- and spreadsheet-based briefing templates with a standardised cloud solution that staff can access on their mobile phones, and even sign off to confirm understanding. Health and safety and compliance data can be administrated instantly, exported and stored compliantly, and can even be pulled into other workflows for end-to-end process automation.

How do I choose a mobile briefing app?

Clear communication of the project brief is essential for timely and efficient works delivery, as well as ensuring safety when out on site. Regulations are constantly being introduced to improve how essential information is communicated in physical industries — collaboration between back-office planners, persons in charge, and site workers holds the key to better project briefings.

With a Daily Briefing App, your project brief can be stored in a single digital space, and can be accessed on a mobile or tablet device at any time. This means that if the brief is updated, team members will be notified when the revised plan is published, and you can even introduce checkboxes and process flows to ensure everyone has read and explicitly confirmed their understanding of the brief.

Alternatively, you may choose to opt for weekly project briefings if you’re confident that schedules of work or safety information aren’t going to change on the fly. This is a simple adjustment that can be made to equip staff with briefings at the beginning of the working week, as opposed to each day.

Nutshell customers also benefit from using our Site/Shift Report App, and our Construction Site Diary App. Given Nutshell apps can be linked to establish seamless workflows, this data can be collected and instantly pulled through your briefing app to ensure you have the most up-to-date information, so everyone’s always singing from the same hymn sheet.

Why Nutshell?

The trouble with off-the-shelf project management software is that it rarely talks to the rest of your business software. You need to export and import data from one to another by hand, which is slow, expensive and leads to mistakes and data blind-spots… which defeats the object in going digital in the first place.

Imagine if your site briefing software pulled in and analysed live close call and near miss data to pivot projects based on perceived risks, all on its own. Well, with Nutshell it can.

Nutshell apps are 100% customisable to your business. Not just the superficial stuff – every part of your workflow, from data-capture and line-manager approval, to processing, reporting and integrating with your existing back-office systems.
