Digital Work Instructions

No More Paper. No More PDFs.

Go Cloud.

Why rely on old methods of bringing information to the floor, only to see it go outdated as soon as it is posted? And, as a result, go unused and ignored.

Up-to-date work instructions are key to modern manufacturing and higher quality standards. You can’t afford to gamble your business by using older technologies that can’t keep up with a modern work environment and a dynamic workforce.

Flexwrite, in partnership with VKS Solutions, offers cloud-based, fully digital work instructions. They are intuitive, quick to update and much less expensive than conventional methods

Pictures, videos, CAD Illustrations, feedback annotations and text: All combine to guide operators and maintenance personnel on exactly what to do and when.

And they are always up-to-date. Changes from the central office are automatically updated across your work environment.

Three Levels. You Choose.

VKS Lite allows you to create, edit, and view digital work instructions in just a few minutes. At a very low cost: free!

Monitor productivity on the go. Collect data and create mandatory checklists using VKS Pro.

With VKS Enterprise you can connect your live work instructions to third-party ERP or MES via a highly flexible and easy to configure API platform.
