"An Alternative XML / Content Management Tool "

What do you like best?

The ability to work on an XML file and add specific content to it. For example, in my workplace, I was able to copy and paste company manual content into specific XML tags in the editor from Microsoft Word seamlessly.

What do you dislike?

The ability to completely edit the XML file is lacking in this software. For example, the tags must be preset prior to adding all of the content when using this software application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your company has implemented this software, it does the job (but some things are limited in editing, such as the XML tags). It does have help and customer support (but wish that my company would upgrade to either the latest version of Arbortext or try another alternative, such as XMetal).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ensuring that all company content is present in the appropriate manuals (and that management is completely satisfied with all of the content that is written in the manuals prior to distribution).

"An okay software with room for improvement"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of learning how to use the tagging. I also like the print and publish capabilities, as well as the ease of sharing a file among other users.

What do you dislike?

There are features missing from AT that other software programs such as Microsoft Word have. For example, there is no easy way to change heading levels like there is in Word, and help tools are more difficult to navigate than other programs’. Finally, AT does not work well over a WiFi connection, which as a telecommuter, makes my work more difficult.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is easier to use for our writing needs then Word, especially in the formatting department.

What PLM solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Complex but powerful"

What do you like best?

This tag-text editor allows users to edit text on specific slots and within an specific format. Great level of standarization on format aspects.

What do you dislike?

At the beginning is complex to use and requires quite an extensive training.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Multiple DTDs allow companies or departments to create different text formats which can later on be delivered to employees. This way, all the coworkers will be on the same page.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Format standardization among colleagues in terms of work instructions developement. With this less flexible format there are less problems at integration phase.
