Content Reuse

The central benefit of content reuse is it allows you to write and maintain your text once, but have it appear multiple times throughout your document set, and it can radically reduce the cost of maintaining documentation.

 

Here's an example of reuse

You can write content once, then reuse it as often as you'd like. Changes and updates to this content can easily be made in one area.

Reuse

 

In this example, we see the Company Overview content stored and maintained in one place, then reused

· in a client document, such as an RFP

· online in an About Us section, or

· in print, like a New Hire Manual.
