CLEAR PROCESSES – IMPROVED DOCUMENTATION

FROM PILES OF PAPERWORK TO A STRUCTURED REVISION CYCLE

ARC-Desk is a web application that supports two central processes in your documentation cycle:

Creation and management of change requests

Start by uploading a manual – e. g. from the Content Management System XR – to the portal. Users can then attach change requests as comments to any paragraph, image, graphic image, chapter, etc. Graphics or longer texts are added to the change object as attachments. Change requests can be discussed between authorized parties and ultimately approved or declined. The complete discussion history is permanently stored and retrievable at any stage.

Review and approval of documents by internal and extermanl reviewers

You then republish the manual revised on the basis of the change requests on ARC-Desk. Changed chapters or sections are clearly marked, as are the implemented changes. Depending on authorization, reviewers can add additional comments, approve or reject the changed chapters or sections.

The web application ARC-Desk supports the change requests as well as the approval processes in you documentation cycle

Your benefits

  • Put an end to change requests via telephone, eMail, paper, PDF or even door-to-door shouts. Replace them with a central, easy-to-use web-based component.

  • Central administration and permanent storage ensures complete traceability of all processes: who recommended which change and when, who accepted or rejected it and who went on to implement it in the documents?

  • Do away with approval processes via PDF or paper

  • Highly efficient: Find changed or revisable areas quickly and easily. Only the changed sections require approval. All others are merely displayed. Once all sections are approved, the entire manual is approved

  • Traceability: The system permanently stores who has approved which sections (during which revision)
