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).
