Skilled Robot workforce for Procore projects

What if we told you that Nyfty wasn’t a construction tech company but a skilled labor hire company whose entire workforce is a bunch of proactive, persistent little Robots. And not just any Bots, these Bots are like smart, super-productive humans that don’t mind doing time consuming site admin tasks that keep workers on track, increasing productivity, increasing compliance and saving you money. They will even do that work in your chosen software system, today that's Procore, but more will come.

Nyfty Bot will actively and automatically take care of the admin that you usually do in the software you already use and only involve you if there is an issue. It’s not a software system, it’s just like a bright, human assistant sitting by your side, working with you and for you. It’s your Little Robot Helper.


It all begins at check-in

Whilst every Nyfty Bot can work ‘standalone’ the benefits of linking multiple Bots are huge, and since COVID escalated the need for site check-ins, Attendance Bot has become the core Bot at the heart of most deployments. The key difference between Attendance Bot and other QR check-in systems is that it will SMS workers one on one, asking questions needed for on-boarding, message them until they respond then add that data to your Daily Construction Report in Procore. Unlike Google forms, which will ask you the same questions every day, Nyfty will remember you and won’t “lock up” your data in a PDF. Also, if individuals don’t have phones or aren’t able to use them on-site, Nyfty can handle crew check-ins for entire teams.


Chuck Borstel, Commodore’s Vice President of Safety and Regulatory Compliance told us how Commodore started using the Bots during COVID and love it so much they have recently signed an enterprise agreement and are taking the Bots company wide. Chuck said that they will never give up using Attendance Bot for check-ins as they are so valuable to their safety compliance processes.


Nyfty does your productivity reporting

When you use Attendance Bot, the really exciting thing is that Nyfty will populate Procore with very detailed information for Site Registers and Construction Logs, effectively writing your Daily Construction Report for you. It can gather worker information, like trade and skill level, and link to Manpower Bot to get details of all work done on site every day.

It can even be used to capture vaccination status and Inclusion and Diversity data, which can be a State reporting requirement.


Nyfty massively improves safety compliance

For people like Chuck from Commodore, the safety benefits of Nyfty are massive. Once Nyfty knows who is onsite, it knows exactly who needs to do what and when then triggers other Bots to make sure it happens and improve compliance and reporting. A couple of examples; if a new worker arrives on the job site, Nyfty will ask them to complete their Orientation. It also knows that Foremen need to complete their JHAs every day and will follow up to ensure that these are done.

Nyfty isn’t there to just remind people what to do, because it’s a smart little Bot helper, it will actually work with them to complete the task and then save the results in Procore.


Nyfty opens channels of site communication

Broadcast Bot allows you to communicate to all people who have checked in. You can send a text to everyone, just Foremen, just Supers, you choose. No looking for people, no having to check who has received a notification and who hasn’t, Nyfty talks to everyone for you and gets a response for you if you need it.


All of these things are having a direct impact on improving safety and our customers are seeing a massive increase in compliance since they have been using Nyfty Bots. Commodore could see, in their analytics, the day they started using Nyfty Bot as they went from low volume to 100% compliance.
