What is Manufacturing Software?
This is a broad term that describes a digital tool that allows manufacturers better manage their operations. There are a number of very effective manufacturing softwares available - and they each have a part to play in your operations.
Some are very effective storage solutions, some coordinate raw materials, and some provide us with niche data solutions. These systems (and your processes) thrive when they're used as designed - working in harmony to improve efficiency, quality, and safety.
Manufacturing software can help teams create and manage visual checklists for the frontline.
So what is SwipeGuide, exactly?
SwipeGuide is the frontline "how-to" platform for connected work at scale. The SwipeGuide platform places a premium on usability at the frontline, crowdsourcing improvements, and delivering knowledge in the moment of need.
It's a tool designed to coordinate instructions, checklists, and training in order to standardize 50 different ways of doing the same thing. However, it doesn't accomplish some things that other manufacturing softwares do - like organizing back-office documentation or tracking raw materials.
We've gathered a shortlist of the most popular manufacturing softwares used by teams around the world. We'll explain how they're designed to be used and how they're different from SwipeGuide.
