1. Voice based problem collection

Kaizen and all forms of continuous improvement processes start with problem reporting.

Voice based feedback is a quick no-training solution ideal for busy frontline workers without desk-workplace.

  • 100+ languages/accents, use your native language
  • Anonymous and no-blame culture
  • No cumbersome typing, just say it
  • Not interruptive: No paper-card or form required, 10sec for problem description and move on.
  • Add photos/video/GPS-coordinates (optional)

2. Channels they already use

Ubiquitous access is important to capture issues when they happen. Our solution integrates with warehouse devices and existing manufacturing tablets to leverage familiar channels.


Pin-up QR-Codes at all workstations and common areas for employees to scan when something happens

Open API

Integrate wit digital SOP, work instructions and existing devices


Use the favorite chat app most employees use on a daily basis.


Rugged terminals put up at workstations or as kiosks in common areas. 4G support, no wifi or LAN access required.


The leading communication tool for frontline workers.
