SourceOne delivers professional product and service documentation (everything from software user guides to body corporate documentation) using efficient, modern techniques tailored to your organisation. This can include automation and integration with workflow, version control and task management systems.

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, topic-based authoring and web-based content infrastructures with publishing automation, and strongly advocate the use of plain language techniques using a style guide tailored to your requirements.

What is Single-Source Authoring and Multi-Channel Publishing?

Single-source content is built up from authoritative "write once" snippets and topics that are reusable, not duplicated, and efficiently maintained. The fonts, colours, logos, images, page layouts, etc., are also separated from the task of maintaining written content. These techniques enable content to be efficiently managed and repurposed on demand. For example, content can be easily published to different file types or online, and to different target devices, re-branded, or even reworded for customers, trainers, partners, or resellers.

Content no longer needs to be duplicated or require maintainance in multiple systems or different documents. End-user and trainer guides, executive white papers, technical documents, policy documentation, ebooks and responsive online help, etc., are all derived from a single authoritative version of the truth.

Content changes can also be engineered using some of the same version control techniques and tools familiar to best-practice software developers, while still able to be maintained efficiently by anyone with familiarity of modern word processing software and the production of outputs automated using scripts.
