Visual SOPs: No more Word, Excel or PowerPoint for your instructions

The picture shows an example of a visual SOP created with a classic word processing program. Many companies have the problem that the creation with classical word processing programs is very time-consuming and the documents are difficult to maintain. Changes, translations and the subsequent release of the work instructions are also very time-consuming. The printed paper instructions often end up in confusing stacks of paper or bulky folders.

Digital standard operating procedures for industry leaders

Paperless SOPs can be created, updated and released digitally simply via drag & drop. Thanks to the cloud approach, your manufacturing employees always receive the current version of your SOP on the mobile device of their choice. To do this, they simply call up the instruction via an integrated search function, scan of a QR code or via order. All data points relevant for the smart SOPs as well as information on operational progress can be evaluated in a central overview. This ensures that all work is carried out, incidents are resolved and data is collected.
