Automation:

Daily reports are crucial in the construction industry for tracking progress, managing resources, and ensuring quality and safety in any project. These reports provide essential insights that help project managers make informed decisions, maintain control over operations, and address any issues promptly. 

However, the process of generating these reports can be time-consuming and prone to errors, especially when done manually. Kwant has revolutionized this aspect of project management through the use of Large Language Models (LLM). By automating the generation of daily reports, Kwant not only streamlines the workflow but also enhances the accuracy and efficiency of reporting. 

Here are some key features and benefits of this automation:

  • Automated Report Generation: Uses LLM models to generate comprehensive, up-to-date reports automatically.
  • Editable and Downloadable Reports: Reports are customizable and available in Doc format.
  • Time Savings for Project Managers: Frees up time for strategic tasks by automating routine reporting.

Bob - the AI assistant

Kwant includes an AI chatbot feature that will be launched in late May. This chatbot is capable of answering a variety of custom queries, ensuring that critical information is always accessible. 

Additionally, it delves deep into your risk insights and connects to all results available in the Kwant product. It then creates automated reports, providing a comprehensive and user-friendly tool for efficient project management.

Here are examples of how "Bob - the AI assistant" can help : 

  • Worker Locations During Incidents: In an incident, project managers can ask the chatbot for worker locations to improve response times and safety measures.
  • Worker Retentions: The chatbot can provide information about new workers who have joined the project. It helps managers keep track of personnel changes and integration processes.
  • Fatigue Alerts: The system can identify overworked employees, enabling managers to tackle potential burnout and ensure a fair distribution of workloads.
