ABB's Commercialize program (CCC) is designed to develop partnerships with startups to solve real industrial challenges through innovation and a dynamic and reactive way of working.
After a successful proof-of-value pilot project, the initial roll-out of instructions for ABB variable speed drives took place in April 2019. As we continued our successful partnership, SwipeGuide was launched globally in the summer of 2019 for both internal work instructions and and end user installation guides, in up to 100 countries around the world.
Currently, production of SwipeGuide digital work instructions lies with ABB’s support teams and product experts. However, there is a plan in place to create a truly flexible instruction community - a collaborative network of marketing, technical, and customer support professionals who provide unique insights into optimizing the instruction experience.
As our collaboration develops, ABB will incorporate the SwipeGuide platform beyond the world of VSDs. Their vision is to include our solution with a wide range of products and services.
To facilitate a truly global impact for ABB customers, our guides are instantly available in English, French, German, Spanish, and Chinese. Work instructions will soon be offered in Russian.
