Downloading your content onto a mobile app and taking it with you

There is growing demand from organizations to adopt a mobile strategy that goes beyond simply providing a responsive version of their content knowledge base. Field engineers, sales staff, and customers often need the ability to take content offline and work with no access to the Internet. Finding the content they need to take offline and ensuring they don’t forget something, requires planning – ensuring that related content is easily discovered and downloaded.

What can the audience expect to learn?

Learn about the various factors that affect delivery of content and its preparation to support an offline mobile app strategy. See how related content can be defined within a knowledge base, and learn from a number of real examples using aspects of a mobile app for content delivery.
