TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Thanks for all the comments and input on this subject. The outcome was that we are keeping print manuals. The cost of them as a percentage of the product is negligible and I managed to convince "them" that providing hard copy was a good idea :)
As an aside to those folk who mentioned medical directives. Although our products are used in medical procedures, we are not a medical products company! Specifically because of the hoops that we would have to be jump through. We supply the equipment and OEMs do the jumping when they integrate it into their systems.
