|Pressemitteilung von: The Writers Block (TWB)|
(openPR) - The paper enumerates the factors to consider while determining whether to outsource a technical document i.e. the ‘make or buy’ decision. The paper says that the strategist in the business needs to understand the role of a good user document in converting a buyer into a repeat customer. He needs to take the economics of his organization into consideration and the expected benefits, while analyzing whether to outsource the documentation. The benefits are classified into direct and indirect cost reduction to the organization and the increase in revenues. |
The white paper discusses the necessity of technical documentation in today’s high-tech world and points out why an organization should outsource technical documentation. It lists the key questions an organization should ask itself, mainly based on costs and expected returns involved, before deciding to outsource. It explains that although it is difficult to quantify the benefits of outsourcing, it is possible to provide guidelines about the investments and advantages an organization can get by outsourcing technical documentation.
The paper then discusses what constitutes direct benefits of outsourcing like reduced product development costs, saving on investment of resources and single point of document management and also the indirect benefits such as cutback on paying remuneration, meeting quality standards and an unbiased perspective among others. The paper goes on to explain how good documentation can help reduce the cost to a company. It gives examples based on reduction in post-sale costs, reduction in expensive corrections, creation of loyal customers instead of one-time buyers. The white paper concludes by listing the various reasons due to which a technical document can be outsourced. This provides a guideline to companies looking to outsource but not sure about what kind of documents can be outsourced.
The white paper on ROI in Technical Documentation Outsourcing will help businesses in making the ‘make or buy’ decision with reference to technical documents. This will help them maximize returns as the role of good documentation in retaining customers has already been established.
