DITA Success: Small team quickly delivers on all DITA benefits
Cybex International, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of premium exercise equipment primarily for commercial use. The Cybex product line includes a full range of both strength training and cardio training machines sold worldwide under the Cybex brand.
Faced with a small team, a growing product line, and an increasing global market, Cybex was reaching a point of being operationally and cost challenged with the current documentation production process.
What can the audience expect to learn?
In this presentation, attendees learn how to overcome these problems:
- You are not committed to DITA because of the time constraints getting it up and going
- You are concerned about learning new software
- You are hesitant to add new languages because of the expense and time involved
