Create application documentation

How much time do you spend creating application documentation? Probably too much.

Create application documentation faster

Creating application documentation is hard. Whether you’re taking screenshots, annotating a video, or cutting and pasting different elements into a document, the process is never simple; it is complicated, frequently frustrating, and takes a lot of time.

To help make the creation process easier, companies invest in a number of different tools. While these tools can help speed up the process of creating documentation, they still typically saddle one person with the job of actually building the documents. Then, you are left with the problem of distributing and managing the files, and editing them when, not if, changes are required.

Epilogue helps make creating application documentation easier by automatically building step-by-step documentation for you as you complete tasks and workflows. You can also leverage internal SMEs via built-in collaborative authoring capabilities. The finished documentation is cloud hosted (but can also be exported, including as SCORM packages) for easy distribution and access by your end users. And Epilogue’s single source editing lets you edit once and deploy to all existing file types – PDF, 508 compliant, demo simulations and more.
