Repair and Testing Instructions

It’s a fact of doing business. Equipment WILL need repairs. However, the less time spent on those repairs, the better, right? Repairs and testing can be performed quickly, accurately and easily with visual standard work instructions from Explainers. They are custom created specifically for your machinery and provide step-by-step, visual directions.


US Postal Services requires “text-heavy manuals” in their RFPs. Their supplier, Grand Rapids Label, wanted to make sure their equipment could be repaired quickly and knew these manuals were ineffective.


We provided them with a text-heavy manual (to meet the RFP) and a set of visual work instructions for the technicians to use.

  • Visual TOC helped technicians find the procedures quickly.
  • Downtime for repairs was reduced.

  • Reduced call center inquiries
  • Increased customer satisfaction
