We set out to help Orkla Foods create a more cost effective, sustainable way of working by delivering a flexible digital work instruction platform.
Potentially the biggest impact - SwipeGuide simply makes daily life on the shop floor easier for both machine operators and their supervisors. They enjoy a simple, streamlined way of working that’s supported by an intuitive digital tool.
- Efficiency and Time-Saving for Authors and Editors. After SwipeGuide, The process of authoring and distributing paper work instructions has been simplified for those in charge of creating them. Instructions can be authored more quickly thanks to an intuitive interface, mockup tools, and the ability to capture and include photos within the editor.
- Supervisors no longer need to manage, edit, and distribute hundreds (potentially thousands) of paper work instructions. Orkla Foods reports that this has saved an incredible amount of time and effort for their staff.
- Up-to-Date and accessible instructions for Operators. Workers on the shop floor know that the work instructions they access are going to help them perform their job to standard - and that they’re never further away than their mobile device.
More sustainable work instructions and processes.
In line with Orkla Foods' CSR and sustainability goals - digital work instructions simply reduce the amount of paper used throughout a company’s entire supply chain. No more printing out lengthy PDF manuals or dealing with physical training materials.
In addition to this, the productivity and efficiency benefits of the SwipeGuide platform mean fewer errors during production. This translates to less wasted resources and defects in the end product.
Reduced downtime and errors.
A digital platform makes it easy for manufacturers to standardize all processes and procedures within a production environment. For Orkla Foods, this has reduced expensive machine downtime and human errors during the production process.
Improved First Time Right.
When employees have instant access to the most up-to-date work instructions, they are more likely to execute work correctly the first time they attempt a new or complex procedure. Implementing the SwipeGuide platform has resulted in a better FTR score for Orkla Foods.
Improved employee satisfaction.
Our partners at Orkla Foods are happy to say that they’ve noticed an overall improvement in the attitudes of their workforce on the factory floor. Machine operators are relieved to have a solution that requires less time to access and is guaranteed to be accurate and up-to-date.
