Precision Content adapts structured authoring best practices to a rich semantically-structured technology framework. Teams of authors and contributors are trained to produce modular, concise, and consistent content. This is critical to developing effective, scalable, and sustainable content.
Precision Content is based on DITA – the fastest growing open XML standard in the world. You are free to choose the best tools for your content lifecycle. There’s no vendor lock-in, ever.
Backed by an XML infrastructure, you can publish to all the formats and devices you need including web, PDF, wiki, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Word, RTF, ePub, and many others. Better yet, you are future-proofing your content for whatever formats or requirements you might need next year or even 10 years from now.
Authoring becomes an established method that results in amazingly usable, high-quality content. It is also not prone to errors and inconsistencies introduced by copy and paste. Once a piece of content exists, it can be reused as many times as needed. Updating it in one place updates it everywhere.
Precision Content is designed to save the organization time and money in the activity of content
Key features and benefits include:
|Future-proofing||Modular, well-structured content is primed for the next phase of your information management strategy. Whether publishing to a mobile device or upgrading to a state of the art content management system, clear, well designed and semantically aware content is the first step.|
|Reducing update and approval time||When content is well structured and easy to find and keep track of, making updates and approving content is easier. Using structured content will reduce content approval time and effort.|
|Reusing information||Topics can be used in multiple information products such as a content set, curriculum or website.|
|Using content as a valuable asset||XML makes content intelligent, versatile, manageable, and portable. Content can be published to PDF, HTML, RTF, PowerPoint, or mobile all without ever copying and pasting anything between files.
Compared to traditional authoring and content life-cycle approaches, Precision Content® unearths unrealized efficiencies and cost savings and provides strategies for managing content as a valuable asset.
