Creating Manuals with Dedicated Professional Tools

Our clients have their own special needs and requirements.
Need user manuals for multiple devices with similar functions at the same time?
Want to make good use of previous product manuals?
Shorter lead time for multilingual manuals? Web-based and printed materials?
No problem! We have developed sophisticated tools to answer all these customer requests.

The more manuals to create, the longer the lead time will be, not to mention the increased complexity of content management and the challenges with respect to quality. Our ES System was developed just to solve those issues.
The ES System consolidates and manages common information in databases. By using these databases, manuals for multiple products can be simultaneously created with minimum man-hours spent.
The ES System is also designed to facilitate overall translation process, providing for a seamless translation management for multiple languages. Increasing data managed by the ES System also leads to reduced lead time and production costs.

We, at YAMAGATA INTECH, have multiple self-developed tools ready to provide our clients with the solutions best suited to their special requests.
