Since 1992, ProEdit has established itself as one of North America’s largest editing, technical writing, and instructional design firms. With more than 1,200 clients—including IBM, Honda, HP, Nortel, Ericsson, Siemens, and Texaco—ProEdit has succeeded through its ability to handle any size project with a customer-first mindset and time-tested methodologies. In keeping with that philosophy, ProEdit needed to reduce the time and cost associated with producing technical manuals while simultaneously laying the groundwork to meet increasing demands for delivering instruction and assembly information online.
ProEdit evaluated a range of software solutions before selecting SolidWorks® Composer software to advance its processes for producing technical manuals and assembly instructions. The company chose SolidWorks Composer because of its flexibility, versatility, and strong backing by leading 3D company Dassault Systèmes. By implementing SolidWorks Composer, ProEdit reduced the time required to produce technical manuals by 15 to 20 percent, improved the quality of its documentation materials, realized cost savings for its clients through easier material updates, and laid the groundwork for leveraging online video and HTML delivery technologies.
