SwipeGuide: Free 6 months Pro subscription for manufacturers worldwide
Founded in 2016, SwipeGuide is based out of The Netherlands. Daan Assen and Willemijn Schneyder co-founded the company and it has raised total funding of €1.3 million till date. The startup aims to simplify work with digital instructions, getting rid of papers and PDFs in the process. The Dutch startup has now announced a “Help the Helper” initiative under which it will offer its SwipeGuide Pro subscription to companies that are giving back to the community during Coronavirus. Under the initiative, manufacturing companies worldwide can get a 6-month free subscription to SwipeGuide Pro, which is worth €4,470.
Most companies in the beverage, automotive and fast-moving consumer goods industries are now switching or coming up with new procedures. This is being done to increase the production of essentials such as hand sanitizers, face masks, and respirators that are crucial during the pandemic. The SwipeGuide Pro platform can be ideal for companies that need to implement new processes or production procedures as it can help efficiently onboard shop floor workers on the fly with digital work instructions and standard operating procedures.
Healthy Workers: New Anywhere online service to optimise remote workspaces
For those who are used to co-working spaces or sitting with their team in an office-like setting, working from home can be tough. Keeping this in mind, Healthy Workers has released a new module that can help one optimise remote workspaces, anywhere in the world. The module is said to enable community connection among a dispersed workforce and can increase employee engagement and commitment.
The new module empowers employees with the option to provide feedback on the physical and mental challenges they face in the working environment at home. This enables the employer to better gauge the well-being of their employees. The module also provides useful tips and tricks for a healthy work environment, enables notifying employees of changed policies and other relevant information via posts. Additionally, there are also digital coaching sessions to enable employees to be healthier and more productive at home.
