My new employer wants to make our help system available to our customer to download. What files are needed to create a "portable" help system? Is this still WebHelp?

Personally, I don't know why it is so critical to offer a downloadable help system to customers. I can't understand why they can't use a .pdf. All of our products are unique and the manuals are quite navigatable through pdf. Any thoughts?
