Taqtile Revolutionizes Work Instruction Digitization Process with New Manifest Maker App

SEATTLE–()–The ability for businesses to create digital work instructions just got a whole lot easier with the launch of the Manifest® AppMaker. Created by TouchInc., the leader in augmented reality (AR) work instruction solutions, Manifest Creator transforms the way companies capture and digitize work instructions. The free app, available today, is designed to help companies overcome a major obstacle to implementing and leveraging AR-enabled work instruction platforms: creating digital procedures, step by step, to guide workers without a desk.

For the first time, companies can understand the procedures for replacing faulty components in industrial equipment carry out inspections on a fleet of vehicles, with ease of aiming and shooting. Manifest Maker eliminates the time-consuming creative process and long learning curves by allowing workers to simply capture video footage of an expert performing a procedure and turn it into a digital procedure. Using Manifest Maker’s intuitive tools, users create personalized work instructions enriched with videos, still and other images, self-transcribed text, dictated tips and scans of existing manuals. The result is a digitized, step-by-step procedure that’s more natural, more understandable, and more usable by deskless workers, created in just minutes.

“Until now, creating digitized procedures for use by homeless workers has been difficult, time-consuming, and often very expensive,” says John Tomizuka, co-founder and CTO of Taqtile. “Manifest Maker’s sleek simplicity will allow users in any industry to simply and quickly create work instructions that can be augmented and shared by deskless workers across the enterprise with an AR-enabled platform like Manifest.”

The value of documenting and digitizing operational, maintenance and repair procedures and sharing them via the Manifest® The work instruction platform can dramatically improve the efficiency, accuracy, and safety of an organization’s deskless workforce. Many organizations continue to share critical operational knowledge through physical tools, such as manuals and paper memos. These methods take time to create, can be difficult to update with modified procedures, and, in the case of paper manuals, may not be available where maintenance and repairs are needed.

Key features of Manifest Maker include:

  • Simple drag-and-drop video clips

  • Creating still images

  • Automatic transcription of videos

  • Automated dictation

  • Image markup and annotation with graphics and text

  • Scanning and Digitizing Paper Manuals
