Manual.to & BekaertDeslee win Corporate Venturing Award
Manual.to & BekaertDeslee were awarded the Flanders’ Bizon Corporate Venturing Award. This way, the Flemish Government, through Vlaio and Bizidee, award the most successful collaboration between startups/scaleups and large corporates. The jury was particularly impressed with the measurable results and the unique synergy between a large multinational enterprise and a young, nimble software company.
BekaertDeslee needed a better way to quickly train and support their operators worldwide. Challenges included quickly creating multilingual manuals that were kept up to date across six continents. Having tried multiple established solutions, they discovered that Manual.to offered a unique way to engage their employees by involving them in the production process. Together, we created a fast, lean knowledge sharing solution that provides tremendous tangible benefits.
Notable results include:
- Improved employee engagement (+30%)
- Reduction in production errors (-15%)
- Reduced update costs (-80%)
- Reduced translation costs (-85%)

Everyone’s talking about Industry 4.0 today. Let’s talk about People 4.0.
Everything is becoming more digital, changing faster and becoming more complex. Companies that operate worldwide face additional challenges: how do you exchange this knowledge across country and language borders? These are also the challenges BekaertDeslee faced. Along with the technology, the operator training had to evolve: more digital, flexible and accessible. They accomplished this with Manual.to.
