Content is the lifeblood of any organization — a vital business asset that provides meaning, direction, and stability both for internal and external users alike.
As organizations grow, the challenge of maintaining accurate, usable content grows at an exponential pace. This is a problem that can’t be solved simply by hiring more content producers or throwing more effort at the problem.
Without empowering content producers with proper systems and a consistent writing methodology, businesses that pour well-intentioned hours into developing content are doomed to face:

The Precision Content Methodology breaks content down into its component parts making it easier to read and understand.
Our approach saves your organization time and money in the activity of content authoring, content management and content publishing.

|Improved content quality, accuracy, and consistency||Improved readability and ease of use|
|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||Making updates and approving content is easier when content is well structured and easy to find and keep track of. Using structured content reduces content approval time and effort.|
|Reusing information||Topics can be used in multiple information products such as a content set, a help system, context-sensitive help, a training curriculum, a website, or a mobile app.|
|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.

These are the key advantages of Precision Content:
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.
These are the three laws that support the content strategy.
