The FINAL PIECE of the Puzzle
Many companies initially start by writing their end-user documentation in-house, underestimating the time commitments and skill-set required. Poorly written end-user documentation can let down an otherwise high-quality product, system or process and in some cases can introduce risk in particular where products, systems or processes require maintenance and troubleshooting. Rather than seeing end-user documentation as a tick-box exercise, it should be viewed as an extension of the project and given the same level of investment. Free your team to concentrate on where they can add value, and allow AST to complete your project with the final piece of the puzzle.
Our expertise will enable you to provide high quality professional technical documentation to your end-user, complementing your own service and enhancing your overall delivery package.
