PROBLEMS WE SOLVE

Nobody reads procedures or safety documents...

1

COST

Procedures are skimmed, leading to misunderstanding and costly error. Tragic consequences occur when safety procedures like LOTO are not done correctly.

A modest 200 procedures can cost a million dollars to produce, review, and control - a high price if they are underutilized and lead to error.

SOLUTION

Brevity at Work can create concise, visual procedures that instantly communicate hazards and best practices. Various mobile-ready formats are available. We also custom design for your application.

Well-designed work instructions:

 

  1. Immediately identify hazards & controls.

  2. Provide overview of tasks.

  3. Show step-by-step instructions.

  4. Communicate best practices.

  5. Leverage visuals to keep instructions brief.

We've got a shortage of skilled workers & many will change jobs or retire...

COST

Skilled labor shortage impairs growth and performance. It's vital to capture your best workers' experience before they leave or retire.

Videos help visualize how to do tasks correctly. Improvement opportunities may be lost if videos for key tasks are not readily available.

SOLUTION

Brevity at Work can capture best practices from your most valuable workers, and create a multimedia knowledge base that workers enjoy using to learn on the job or on the go.

Ensure consistent high quality for tasks like these:

 

1. Installation

2. Assembly

3. Skilled Trades

4. Repair

5. Customer Service 

Keeping our documentation up-to-date with product changes across all models is a time-consuming chore!
 

3

COST

Making changes manually for each model - as required if using Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign - multiplies editing costs.

SOLUTION

Brevity at Work can transform your user guides using topic-based authoring in a user-friendly XML editor like MadCap Flare:

  • Make content changes once. Guides that share content update automatically.

  • Publish into multiple formats from a single source.

  • Rapidly answer users' questions with engaging multimedia.

Benefits to product users:

1. Faster answers to questions

2. Mobile information access

3. Easy navigation

4. Multimedia 

Nobody reads procedures or safety documents...
We need to give instructions for handling a variety of situations & customer needs. They change each time the process is done.

4

COST

Overly complex - everything but the kitchen sink - procedures are hard to follow and lead to costly errors.

SOLUTION

Brevity at Work can create easy-to-follow Process Street templates that dynamically:

  • Provide instructions, forms, and data needed for customer and situation at hand.

  • Record data and track process.

  • Pass responsibility between individuals as tasks are completed.

Each time process is repeated, you'll have exactly what you need - no more, no less!​

Audits, quality testing, LOTO, & client onboarding are examples:

 

  1. Steps depend on data/conditions collected/observed or services needed/requested.

  2. Data can be collected as SOP is being used.

  3. Completed SOP becomes a "system of record".
