Single sourcing is a simple idea that requires a very complex implementation. By leveraging XML technologies and single-sourcing methodologies, our experts develop the systems that support every member of the technical publications team.
Source, Architecture, Help, Documentation, and Training
Mission-Critical, Custom XML Applications in single-sourcing environments can help all the members of the technical publications team:
- Authors can write content once and use it everywhere
- Editors can run reports on content before sitting down with a hard copy
- Production editors can automate production tasks
- Everyone can Focus on Content, not Formatting
Single-sourcing makes reuse possible
Content can be used multiple times within a single book or multiple times across multiple books. Writers and editors can focus on writing content, rather than formatting content. Reuse, automation, and the separation of content from format, improves the efficiency of every member of the technical publications team.
One Source, Many Outputs
Our consultants help customers output for all required mainstream output formats including: Web, CD-ROM, Palm, ebook, and Online Help. Through application-specific XML application development, we can produce other output formats tailored to your specific business requirements.
We can’t tell you the number of times we’ve said to someone, “This isn’t really for you. We think you should try…(some other product)”

Our vendor-neutral, platform-agnostic approach guarantees that we design a system that is specifically tailored to your business needs. We help customers make the right choices every step of the way. We help you define requirements that let us choose the best tools and the best way to implement particular components.
