Single-source publishing has been an industry goal for years, but cost and complexity - especially for XML Publishing - have remained a barrier for many organisations. Single source publishing is a fundamental process change, and therefore has a cultural and political impact on how teams work together.
The benefits on offer have driven investment by large organisations. Benefits include:
- faster time to market
- more flexible collaboration models internally and with clients
- vastly reduced localisation and translation costs
- increased customer satisfaction from giving the customer what they want
Over the years this investment has brought down the cost of ownership of single-source publishing systems enormously.
With skills in structured information standards (XML, DITA, S1000D and more), content modelling and processing, and the leading structured and unstructured tools, Mekon helps our clients implement single source systems that work with them.
Experience has also shown us implementing single source publishing systems are more than just a technical exercise. We help our clients plan, communicate and train their staff to make sure that the system actually gets integrated into their business and way of working.
