Dynamic Semantic Publishing for your documentation


Published on

Fluid Topics reinvents the user experience in accessing documentation.

Fluid Topics is a full-web solution for publishing on the Internet documentation produced with structured content authoring tools in DITA or XML format.

User manuals, technical books, installation and maintenance guides are all part of the documentation for your products and they are tools for winning over, satisfying and building the loyalty of your customers.

With Fluid Topics, you go from static documentation in the form of PDF files or HTML pages to a lively, simple and interactive online publication system. Your users can browse, read, search, annotate, comment, create alerts, send feedback to the writers and even create personalized documentation.

Fluid Topics leverages your documentation to boost your operational and commercial performance

Fluid Topics offers a rich and intuitive user experience on all media, PCs and tablets. By increasing accessibility to your documentation and promoting the variety of ways in which it can be used, your support costs are reduced. You increase the satisfaction and commitment of your ecosystem.

Fluid Topics is a complete solution that is immediately operational. Either use the out-of-the box full-featured portal, or insert graphic and functional components (widgets) in an existing site or extranet. And integrate Fluid Topics into your applications and information system using the rich Web Services.

Fluid Topics is available as SaaS for instant implementation, without investment, complexity or risk to your project. If you want to fully master the solution, you can opt for a license.
