I read your post about your company's docutech system. My company
is too small to lease such an animal. So, I'm talking to a local
service bureau to whom I can send a disk and receive printed manuals
in return. The benefit to me would be not to have to handle hardcopy
masters, store pasted-up originals, etc.
Is this a legitimate benefit in
your eyes? I have a service bureau rep. coming to visit me next
week, and I'd like to know more about the advantages and pitfalls
of using such a system before that meeting. Thanks.
BTW, I'm copying the techwr-l list of this e-mail
in case someone else has experiences s/he wants to share with me. . . .
