With technology evolution, there is an increased need for interactive help. Most technical documents don’t provide a real-time view of product usage. Organizations use product simulators to emulate complex systems in order to quicken test cycles and reduce cost. A next-gen technical authoring platform can help fill the gap between static content and actual product usage by adding the ability to launch a product simulator from a document itself. Apart from real-time results, the platform allows users to create customer demos, explore features and gain hands-on experience.
