SourceOne delivers efficient documentation infrastructures, written content and publishing task automation for organisations struggling to produce professional product or service documentation. Ineffective content and processes impact all aspects of your organisation.
Most organisations still use inefficient documentation tools and techniques, leading to inconsistencies or errors in content, duplication of effort and missed deadlines.
We implement modern single-source authoring infrastructures with automation, change control, workflow, and advocate the use of plain language techniques using a style guide tailored to your requirements.
We migrate your content and train your staff for the new facilities, or you can outsource the maintenance of your content to us.
Engage SourceOne to:
- audit your current written content, tools and workflow to recommend best practices
- implement a modern, scalable single-source documentation authoring infrastructure

SourceOne. Documentation, engineered.
What is Single-Source Authoring and Multi-Channel Publishing?
Single-source content is created from reusable, authoritative "write once" text snippets and topics. The text fonts, colours, logos, images, page layouts, etc., are separated from the task of maintaining content. Because of this, content can be efficiently repurposed on demand, publishing to different output formats or re-branding on the fly for partners or resellers, and content that is responsive to multiple device screen sizes.
With single-source authoring, content is no longer duplicated or require maintaining in multiple systems. End-user and trainer guides, executive white papers, technical documents, policy documentation, promotional material, responsive online help, etc., are all delivered from a single authoritative version of the truth, via one tool.
Content can also be reformatted, rebranded, reworded and regenerated for partner and reseller organisations all from the same source material using scripts, without any additional ongoing effort.
In addition, SourceOne content is engineered using some of the same techniques and tools familiar to best-practice software developers, while able to be maintained efficiently by anyone with a familiarity of modern word processing software.
