"We are able to keep pace with our software development, thanks to Calenco. "Mathilde Roch-Meyrand, Documentation Manager, Ullink.

Among the leaders in the market for financial solutions publishers , Ullink counts more than 200 professionals in France and in the world. This international group chose Calenco for their document production.

This choice of a coherent solution to create and manage these documents was essential given the volume and pace of documentation to manage: nearly twenty manuals, corresponding to over a thousand files.

NeoDoc accompanied Ullink during the transition to Calenco by migrating all existing documents (FrameMaker to DocBook XML) and creating style sheets according to Ullink's graphic guidelines for PDF, HTML, CHM and Word publications.

"In 2010, we wanted to move to XML structured documentation for Single Sourcing and work more collaboratively. After looking at various options, we chose the solution offered by Neodoc. It filled our needs in a simple way.

The NeoDoc team took care of migrating the thousands of pages corpus from FrameMaker and Robohelp to Docbook 5. We were very happy with the way in which it was accomplished, all we had to do was simply monitor the project! Today, NeoDoc continues to take care of Calenco updates, since we chose SAAS mode from the start of the project."
