The challenge

Gates Power Systems’ commitment to excellence necessitated a robust system to deliver Shop Floor Standard Operating Procedures and Work Instructions to their workforce. The need for precise document management was crucial to uphold their high standards, especially when facing the scrutiny of regular audits.

Our solution

In August 2010, Gates Power Systems implemented Singlepoint’s Visual Navigator, a solution perfectly designed to streamline its document delivery process. This system enables the storage of documents in ‘hotspots’ linked to images of their manufacturing equipment, ensuring operators access only the correct versions of necessary documents.

The Results

The adoption of the Visual Navigator has reaped considerable time savings and bolstered efficiency. Roddy Edgar, IT Manager at Gates Power Systems, attests to the system’s value: 

“One word describes Singlepoint Visual Navigator for us on the shop floor and that word is ‘invaluable’.” 

Operators now experience seamless access to essential documents and the company stands in a solid position during audits, thanks to the comprehensive control and audit trail that the system ensures.
