Compliance Hurdles

Rail projects are known for their intricate planning and stringent compliance requirements. Ensuring seamless coordination between different project aspects and maintaining compliance throughout the project lifecycle can be a significant challenge. Martinus Rail recognized the need for a comprehensive solution to manage their operations, assets, safety, and compliance while supporting their rapid growth.

A Versatile Solution

The transition to Assignar was remarkably smooth, with the workforce readily adopting the Assignar app on their personal devices (Phones, Tablets, Laptops). This empowered employees to efficiently update personal information, competencies, complete pre-start procedures, safety observations, Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS), accept project allocations, and submit timesheets and expense claims. The real-time visibility of this data was pivotal, as it allowed Sydney Headquarters’ staff to access immediate insights and reports.

Assignar’s individual profiles and app design bolstered workforce accountability. Employees took responsibility for their personal information, competencies, timesheets, and leave within the platform. The app’s functionalities enabled seamless communication with the organization, fostering a sense of responsibility among the team. In case of absenteeism or staff changes, Assignar enabled swift reassignments and informed decision-making through data-driven insights.

Assignar’s integration with other critical platforms like Finance, HR, and Learning Management Systems (LMS) streamlined the tracking of staff, compliance, and budgets. This integration contributed to the efficient management of a high-quality workforce, positioning Martinus Rail as a leader in rail infrastructure construction in Australia.

“Once we implemented Assignar, the rollout and subsequent use of the Assignar app by our workforce was quick and easy." - Krystle, Martinus Rail
