Stefan Kreckwitz, CEO of our partner Congree, describes in his guest blog article the tools that are best used to create an information space.
Solutions such as COSIMA and TopicPilot from DOCUFY are revolutionizing technical documentation. They lay the foundation for an Information Space that spans the entire product cycle. Information from development to marketing and sales, installation, operation, maintenance and finally disposal can be anchored in this space.

It has been more than twelve years since I walked over the
tekom annual conference and looked around for a new component content
management system. In 2006, the editorial staff at kothes consisted of about 20
employees. We wanted to make ourselves more professional and the use of XML was
a very important criterion. So I took a close look at all the systems available
on the market.
I didn’t even have DOCUFY on my screen. At that time Uwe
Reißenweber was the only representative of his company at the booth of his partner
OCE. I let him show me his editorial system COSIMA. At that time DOCUFY was
clearly an outsider on the market. The company had only a few (but quite
representative) customers and the system was not yet a ready-to-use standard
system. It was rather a “project kit”, which was strongly customized.
A shared passion turns into a long-term partnership
I liked the technical approaches in the software and had the
impression that we could work efficiently with it in the editorial department.
I also liked the passion and depth with which Uwe explained his software. We
soon realized that we were on the same page in many respects. Uwe’s readiness
to develop the software into a standard system together with us made me all the
more happy, and so the first approach of COSIMA go! was born.
Meanwhile a lot of time has passed and both companies have
developed strongly. The business cooperation has become a friendship in many
places. We have survived many turbulent times. Even though the business horizon
of both companies has expanded considerably, we still work together
constructively and amicably.
I would like to congratulate you on 20 years of successful
business development and look forward to another 20 years of DOCUFY. Finally, a
big thank you to all DOCUFY employees.
