How to get terrific track and trace in railway construction

Monumental folly or necessary expense? We will let you decide.

You’re probably familiar with the Track and Trace app. You download it, scan a QR code at a restaurant or pub (pre lockdown) and your details are recorded in case of Covid 19 outbreaks.

Software applications, or apps, have been around since 2009. In 2010, “app” was named word of the year. Originally, apps were simply pre-installed software that came with smartphones and tablets. These were commonly for web browsing, emails, maps, calendars and music. They’ve seen evolved into wider use.

With customers upgrading phones and tablets less frequently, apps have become a major focus for revenue growth for giants like Apple, Amazon and Google.

Apps, when downloaded across a team, have the power to connect and engage stakeholders - and that’s what ours does.

Introducing Sitediary by Raildiary.

Our app works like any application - you perform a search in the App Store or Google Play Store, hit download, wait and then sign in.

The magic then begins!

We won’t spoil the surprise by talking you completely through it. To be fair, the app, used widely in railway construction sectors, is very intuitive. What we will share though are some benefits.

1. It saves you money.

This is not a nebulous claim - you can work out cost savings on our algorithmic (we’ve been reading a dictionary, we know!) on our ROI calculator.

2. It saves you time.

Lots of it. We’ve written about time before in a recent blog, where we estimated, perhaps conservatively, a time saving of one hour per day.

3. It solves problems.

By this we mean data is easy to collect and insights are readily garnered to solve problems. Real time updates mean claims and contract changes are instantaneous across your rail construction projects.

4. It is industry specific.

Sitediary was designed by rail construction experts for rail construction professionals. It produces secure reports, with integrated media with geo-tagging built in.

5. It is mobile.

Being an app means that you and your team are not tied to a desk or forever hunting network signals as it has offline capability on smartphones and tablets. Flexibility comes as standard.

Money, time, expertise and problems can be the bane of any project - whether that’s repairing a tunnel, attending a landslip or tendering for the HS2.

The Raildiary app will be your new working partner, a dream colleague in that it turns up every day, never has down time and is utterly reliable.

Everything you need in one place

Real-time data collection, detailed reporting and analytics. Designed by rail construction experts for rail construction experts.

You'll wonder how you managed without it.
