Melbourne, VIC (PRWEB) March 28, 2009
Many organizations are choosing to bypass traditional documentation and training procedures in favor of online wizards that guide users down preset paths and deliver the knowledge and tools users need to produce the right outcome.
Passive words are giving way to interactive guidance and support. However, it has been difficult to meet the demand using conventional programming techniques and even harder to cost justify conversion of existing material.
Not any more! gStepOne.com have produced a free wizard writer that turns passive procedures into interactive wizards using MS Office, Google search, Google Apps and the resources of the web.
The tool is ideal for people with no programming skills who work in-house or as consultants to document and share expertise - technical writers, business process designers, procedure writers, trainers and business authors.
gStepOne is quick and simple to use, and faster than writing the same procedure as a traditional document. Authors draw a map of the steps in a task by dragging and dropping shapes onto a page, then naming and linking the steps. They attach supporting "How to" information, training, pictures, videos, maps, blogs, etc. for each step as required and generate the wizard, which is then available to guide and support others when they need to do the task.
Many businesses, government departments, councils, clubs and community groups want to convert their procedures into gStepOne wizards, but they don't have the resources. For them, contracting out development is the answer, creating many new income opportunities for tech writers and trainers.
In addition to the free version of gStepOne, professional and enterprise versions are also available.
gStepOne.com is a division of Wordware Pty Ltd, a leading knowledge management consultancy, founded in 1986. Wordware offers Knowledge Management services, both as consultants and as providers of online KM technology.
