4.ST Celebrates 25th Anniversary
This announcement was prepared by 4.ST.
Leuven, Belgium-January 4, 2012 — 4.ST is proud to announce its 25th anniversary. During these 25 years, the company has been an important provider of highly respected multi-application and multi-platform on-line help documentation management systems.
Commenting on the changes in the help and documentation industry over the past two and a half decades, CIO Rigo Vangheel said, "There has and always will be a need to provide documentation to end-users. The main difference however is that these days content is more and more provided in real time over the internet to end-users, which makes it easier to keep content up-to-date since file distribution is not longer an issue. Managing and delivering help and documentation in true real time offers your team a lot more flexibility. Your software applications will be able to launch help calls, for which dynamic content is provided from a database on a web server. A collaborative web-based approach is probably the best long-term solution for managing and distributing your product documentation."
This is exactly the reason why 4.ST launched HelpServer. HelpServer is one of the most comprehensive web-based content management systems (CMS) in today's market. HelpServer provides a secured web-based team-authoring environment that uses a shared, object-based content database.
Authors can collaborate in real time to create, manage, translate, reuse and deliver personalized dynamic content over the Internet to end-users. HelpServer allows your team of authors to easily create online knowledge portals, from which up-to-date manuals can be printed to PDF files on the spot by end-users. Next to web-based delivery, authors can still single source (=export) content from the database to different file formats if needed.
"Since HelpServer is entirely web-based we started offering it as SaaS (=Software as a Service) approximately one year ago. Customers who do not want to deploy HelpServer on their proprietary web server can opt for HelpServer SaaS and have their HelpServer environment hosted on our servers as a cloud computing service", said HelpServer CIO, Mr. Rigo Vangheel.
