We help Operations Managers manage

As an Operations Manager, you need to be consistently kept up-to-date on the processes and projects at hand.

But problems such as inaccurate reports, lack of standardised processes, and poor communication flow are all too common. In a manual setting, these issues are particularly troublesome, not only for wasting time and money, but also potentially causing physical harm and running the risk of heavy fines and NCRs.  

Nutshell provides Operations Managers with real-time communication and a clear workflow so you have constant visibility of all areas of the project, helping you manage more effectively while increasing safety on site.

No more blind spots

Operations Managers need to have eyes everywhere. A PMI study found that poor communication leads to one third of construction project failures, which isn’t surprising considering all the different elements of a project that need to be monitored over a workforce spread between site and back office. 

With Nutshell’s operations management software, you see everything that’s happening on site, from health and safety processes, to timescales, to reporting. Everything is saved on one digital platform, available to you whenever you need it through your personal device.

No more inconsistent, incorrect data

Good data is crucial for streamlining processes and improving safety, but standardised reporting is often disregarded when using paper-based processes, as when out on site, it’s easy to forget, misplace, or damage specific forms. This practice leaves gaping holes in your project data.

Did you know 45% of construction professionals report spending more time than expected on non-optimal activities, with the biggest culprits being fixing mistakes and looking for project data.

Nutshell provides templates for operations management reports, all saved to the cloud and accessible anywhere from your mobile device. Workers are prevented from continuing to the next stage of approval until they have completed all the required fields, making missing data a thing of the past.

Complete audit trails

When using paper-and-pen processes, it’s all too common to have missing or incorrect information that needs to be chased down. As a Operations Manager, you have the problem of concluding who exactly needs chasing. With such a hectic schedule, you certainly don’t have time to be playing detective. 

Nutshell provides accountability and quality control through logging all interactions, stored safely in the cloud. This information can be accessed by a Operations Manager at any time, anywhere, clearly showing where a piece of documentation is up to in the sign-off process and who it’s currently sitting with.

Clear workflows for every process

Any Operations Manager knows that without a clear workflow, a project ultimately cannot be planned or executed properly. A survey conducted by KPMG found 69% of construction projects were over budget by more than 10%. This can rise to a staggering 80% over budget with large projects. 

Unclear workflows lead to wasted money and time on processes that aren’t managed efficiently or need to be corrected. Not to mention the considerable fines and NCRs a business could incur if parts of a process are missed. 

A clear, uniform workflow ensures everyone is on the same page. With Nutshell, operations management workflows can be created in an easily understood format, as well as being accessible to all involved at any time or place.

Stay up-to-date

When it comes to construction and engineering projects, time is of the essence. It’s imperative that any changes or new plans are communicated throughout the team, so you can continue managing the project effectively. 

When time is lost, so is the efficiency of the work at hand. According to McKinsey, boosting productivity could save nearly $1.7 trillion annually.

Nutshell empowers Operations Managers with real-time updates, reports, and communication through your personal device, so you can be confident you have all the latest information even in the most remote location.
