Authoring Automation

Also consider:

Single sourcing your documentation efforts to create online help, and printed manuals from the same materials. This will save you money and effort. Ask us how..

Concerned about the time and effort it takes to produce and manage your documentation? Are you faced with repetitive tasks that are growing into a management nightmare? Is your documentation section growing exponentially without improvements in efficiency?

If you've answered yes to any of the above, then it may be the right time to consider how new technologies and old tools can be made to work smarter together.

Developing automated solutions to assist in performing difficult or repetitive documentation tasks should be high on your agenda, as it tends to streamline your efforts, unburden staff and maximize overall efficiency.

Automating processes makes good economic sense, especially since most clients will already have the required software onsite. A good example of this is the Microsoft OfficeTM suite of products, which is run by over 90% of businesses. Its not unusual for the tools to be there, but often the power behind these popular applications isn't realized or known.

Whatever your authoring environment or the toolset you are using, from simple mailing macros to complex database interfaces, single sourcing or vendor specific authoring solutions, let IDS show you how to improve your authoring environment or processes by developing in house solutions that are tailored to your requirements.
