Documentation system helps reduce costs

A technical documentation management system developed for companies that manufacture, sell, or service motor vehicles and related components has been developed by Accent Technologies. The Motor Vehicle (MV-Xpert) system is customized to meet the needs of individual companies or their departments. Typically, it includes a team of motor-vehicle documentation experts and systems specialists familiar with SAE standards and the use of open-source documentation-related software. Any company electing to use the system can choose to have its documentation tasks performed on-site at its facilities, or off-site at an Accent office. The company also can have the MV-Xpert team perform all its documentation tasks or only a portion of them.
In nearly every instance, the MV-Xpert system can be integrated successfully with existing databases and software programs. Developed over a nine-year period, the system has created more than 90,000 technical documentation pages.
This system potentially can reduce documentation costs more than 50% in many motor-vehicle applications. To determine cost savings in specific applications, Accent offers a Documentation Cost-Reduction Analysis (DCA) service.
