Our user guide app gets award nomination

We have been nominated for the Swedish Design Award for our new Power Cutter User Guide. The guide is available as an app for iPad and helps users plan their job and work with machines in a safer and more efficient way as well as maintain the machines correctly.
The Swedish Design Award is a competition in graphic communication organized by Batteri Kommunikation AB. The competition is divided into six main categories; Print, Web, Device, Image, Event and Product, each divided into different sub categories. In total there are twenty-five competition categories. This year, we are nominated in the Device category for the new user guide application for power cutters.

”We are very grateful to receive recognition for the efforts we have put into creating an easy to use guide that helps our customers use our machines. It gives us motivation to go further,” says Maria Rhodin, Project Manager, Marketing Communications, Husqvarna Construction Products.

Safe, ergonomic and efficient cutting

“With the guide, we want to promote a safe and healthy work environment. The guide also aims to prolong the life of the power cutters in order to get the maximum efficiency out of the machine,” says Maria.

The information in the app includes learnings about optimum grip distance and other ergonomic benefits. Photos, videos, and educational illustrations give guidance to the user. Information on service and maintenance is mixed with parts that focus on cutting technique, work environment and safety.
Anyone with an iPad can download the guide from App Store. The content is also available in PDF-format via our web site.
