Example Documents

Many of the documents we produce are of a commercially sensitive nature, and subject to non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), therefore we cannot describe them here. However, the following examples illustrate some of the different types of documentation we have created. Click on a thumbnail to access the corresponding example.

 

PDF User Guide

A multinational telecommunications company was launching a new range of phones onto the UK market. The phones were to be used on their existing telephone systems; all the system features and facilities would be available on the new phone.

We created new PDF User Guides in the client's house style that described the step-by-step operation of each feature on the new phone. They were created in Microsoft Word and were designed to be read on-screen, but could be printed if required by the customer.

 

Quick Guide

We developed a Microsoft Excel solution for one of our clients to automate reconciliation of bank statement entries with their membership database.

The solution was intuitive to use and required little experience of Excel. However, we created a colourful, laminated, single sheet 'Quick Guide' to allow anyone to use the application, not just the person for whom it was designed.

 

Template for Business Forms

A busy engineering firm was concerned that the documents they were sending to their customers did not look professional enough. They didn't have a consistent 'look and feel', included differing levels of information, and, in some cases, omitted crucial details.

We created a number of basic Microsoft Word templates that were installed on all the firm's computers thus allowing the whole team to create professional, consistent documents for their customers.

 

Intelligent PDF

A local church was holding an open weekend and wanted a computer-based attraction to complement the more familiar static displays.

So we accepted the challenge and designed an "Interactive Churchyard" using Acrobat Professional and JavaScript. This is an 'intelligent' PDF that enables users to select the name of a deceased person from a list and then highlights the location of the corresponding plot on a map of the churchyard. The user then clicks on the highlighted plot to return to the list of names.

The "Interactive Churchyard" is an extreme example of 'intelligent' PDF documents. A more representative example is the Sponsored Floodlighting Form, see left.
