Content Management Systems

Systems for compilation and maintenance of content are the strategic tools of technical documentation

In customer and service-driven product communication, components such as product descriptions, product catalogues, sales material, installation-, operation-, and maintenance instructions have become indespensable.

Increasing complexity of products; more and more product variants; higher demands for user instruction; growing language variety, and increasing demands for information readiness on mobile devices, has dramatically affected requirements for the creation and distribution of technical product documentation.

In addition, there are the daily bottlenecks in the author's life, which emerge from countless inconsistent, manual and repetitive tasks:

  • Creation of redundant content
  • Inconsistent version control
  • Inconsistent layout
  • Repetitive translation of the same content
  • Manual output creation

The Content Management System (CMS) is the tool to meet all these challenges.
