DE: Why are you so interested in end user documentation?
We prepare user manuals for our customers to share information about our ERP product, Reckoner. They help them understand and use our ERP solution more effectively.
Documentation is extremely meaningful and important in the lifecycle of Reckoner ERP as it is a very comprehensive product. We need highly professional and easy-to-understand documentation to explain our product to its users, so that they know how to use it.
DE: Why did you start using the Dr.Explain software to create user help?
Writing user manuals is a very important process, that's why we need a software solution that can help us simplify that task.
Before Dr.Explain, we were using Microsoft Word and a bunch of different software tools to prepare the documents. One day we started to look for a better solution.
We compared Dr. Explain to other help authoring tools and found some interesting features in Dr. Explain, which can add value to our business.
DE: How did you manage to solve the problems with help docs before Dr.Explain?
With legacy methods, which had many flaws and reflected on the customer experience in a undesirable way. We have identified the need to organize our products’ written data, manuals, help files, and web guidance in a better way. After some research, we decided to give it a try with a Dr.Explain, as it seemed to be the right tool for our needs.
DE: How did Dr.Explain help your business?
Our user manuals now look more interesting.
The documentation process has become easier. Our customer satisfaction has increased through our better documentation. User manuals help our customers use our ERP product more easily and conveniently.
