Product information needs to be readily available and shared through multiple channels, such as web interfaces and mobile devices. It should be easy for the user to find relevant information quickly by search and navigation. Combined text, images and videos make a good user experience.
Our consultants can advise you regarding how to create and distribute your information.
HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THAT?
Analyze what information the end user needs
Define the structure of the information
Design processes for optimal production and distribution
Find and implement technical solutions that fit your organization
We don’t compromise with our overall goal – To make technology usable!

System, process, and information analysis
We have substantial experience working with information management and product information. We understand the concepts involved in these two areas, and we always look for a smarter solution.
We have developed a method for information analysis that we call SPI – System Process and Information. With the support of this method our consultant will help you to do a full review of your information needs.
Examples of questions that will be addressed during an analysis are:
Who are our users and how would they prefer to consume information?
How do you handle multiple languages in the translation process?
How could a topic-based approach improve your information?
What information should be available for the mobile user?
Our analysts are what you need when you want to see if systems, processes, or information can be improved.
The result of an information management analysis will be an executive report, which our consultant will present to you. If possible we visualize our proposal with a demonstration or prototype.
