Taqtile announces version 3.0 of its Manifest augmented reality work instruction platform

In Augmented Reality News 

April 9, 2024 – Taqtile, Inc., a company specializing in spatial computing technologies and augmented reality (AR) work-instruction solutions, has recently announced the availability of version 3.0 of its ‘Manifest’ platform.

What is Manifest?

Manifest is Taqtile’s work instruction and software platform that leverages AR and spatial computing technology to improve operational workflows and help ensure that jobs get done more accurately and consistently. With Manifest, deskless workers can document maintenance and operational procedures, follow step-by-step work instructions, remotely collaborate with experts, and analyze job performance and history.

What updates does Manifest 3.0 bring?

According to Taqtile, new functionality within Manifest 3.0 offers more effective management of digitized work instructions, allowing organizations to more efficiently manage work-instruction creation and dissemination.

New editorial and publishing controls in Manifest 3.0 include:

  • Version control and traceability, enabling tracking of annotations on each reviewed version. Templates must be submitted for review and approval before they can be used.
  • The “Approver” role is required to review, accept, or reject with change requests.
  • The “Publisher” role is assigned to specific staff members who will have the ability to publish and orchestrate controlled rollouts of new digital procedures throughout an organization.
  • Logic built into Manifest enables sequential routing of instructions for iteration, approval, and publishing.
  • Publication of only a single work instruction at one time, ensuring an approved procedure is the only version available to workers performing the task. Previous versions of the work instruction are automatically archived.

Additional updates to Manifest 3.0 include refinements to the user interface (UI) to make important data more accessible, report generation facilitation, and faster and easier navigation.

How do these updates help organizations?

Through these advanced editorial and publishing tools in Manifest 3.0, organizations can control what digitized procedures are published and when they are accessible, improving regulatory compliance, as well as traceability and accountability. With Manifest 3.0, all forms of work instruction, including step-by-step videos, digital manuals and guidance, animated 3D models and digital twins, detailed holograms, and other valuable company knowledge, can now be more easily managed and made available to employees.

“Taqtile Manifest 3.0 will enable companies to expand the use of our platform across their entire corporate footprint while maintaining the highest levels of compliance, traceability, and accountability,” said John Tomizuka, CTO, Taqtile. “By delivering exceptional management and compliance tools, enterprises in highly regulated industries can confidently expand Manifest usage throughout their organizations.”

Where can Manifest be utilized?

The Manifest platform is compatible across the entire spatial-computing ecosystem supported by Taqtile. The company added that Manifest 3.0 is built to work with an increasing number of spatial-computing devices, including head-mounted displays such as the HoloLens 2, as well as tablets such as the iPad, and other mobile tools. The platform is also accessible via a browser, enabling use by devices that are already in use by enterprise staff.
