What is a mobile timesheet app?

Timesheets provide businesses with a way of tracking which staff are working, where, when and for how long. The onus is usually on the employee to submit their own timesheet, with data being compiled in the office, signed off by a line manager and then used to inform everything from salary and benefits, to fatigue management and sustainability.

Mobile timesheet apps are designed to replace your paper- and spreadsheet-based timesheet templates with a standardised cloud solution that staff can access on their mobile phones. Timesheet 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 timesheet app?

While logging timesheets is good practice in any business, many industries have regulations compelling staff to record working hours and activities. Industries like rail and construction, heavily-regulated by standards boards such as the RSSB, face hefty penalties if fatigue-management data isn’t recorded in the prescribed format or is poorly managed.

A daily mobile timesheet app gives staff a way of logging work time and activities each day, which can be particularly useful for contractors or on multi-faceted projects where shift patterns and work location changes quite often.

Weekly timesheet apps tend to be better on long, consistent projects where staff are working regular shift patterns in the same location, or alternatively for pulling together daily timesheets on a weekly basis. With Nutshell, you can pull daily timesheet data straight into your weekly timesheet app automatically, to save you entering this data again — a massive time saver.

Others may prefer to use a clock-in/out timesheet where staff can quickly and painlessly register where and when they work, using either GPS data to confirm location or a QR code scanner to validate their presence on-site. The app will automatically calculate hours worked and generate this report when needed.

Why Nutshell?

The trouble with off-the-shelf Timesheet 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 Timesheet software could alert your Fatigue Management app when an employee has exceeded safe working hours, 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.
