In many industries there’s a shift taking place from the traditional product-focused model to a user focused model. It has become important to bring service information, such as user and maintenance manuals, to this new model as well to get the best possible user experience. This new model contributes to a lower downtime thanks to predictive maintenance, which is a result of IoT initiatives.
For content, this means that it not only needs to meet certain standards, but also the way content is delivered is changing. End users and field service engineers are looking to simplify their work experience by getting quick and easy access to information on troubleshooting and by demanding information be available on mobile devices or through an Augmented Reality experience.
In this webinar, Berry Braster of Etteplan will explain how business models are changing and what this means for technical communicators and documentation managers.
