At Single-Sourcing Solutions, Inc., our focus is on customers who, for one reason or another, prefer to pursue an in-house or limited-resource-based implementation rather than a fast, large-team implementation. We focus on acting as mentors or as part-time resources to assist implementers while they’re getting started.
We help in-house teams learn to do it themselves by providing an on-call resource that can assist as necessary.
- We teach people how to do document analysis, so they can do it themselves, one book at a time, as their staff has time to devote to the project.
- We can act as a jump-start team, doing initial stylesheet development or tool implementation with the intention to hand it over to the in-company team as soon as they feel ready to take it over.
Our approach is to provide honest, direct advice — and just the right amount of assistance — to take new Arbortext customers from purchase to production.
Why We Do It
These presentations, videos, and podcasts are our attempt to bring tribal knowledge to light. Learn more about using Arbortext from real users. At Single-Sourcing Solutions, we all started as customers. We all learned from other people — customers, users, PTC/Arbortext resources.
We have found that people who learn Arbortext are premium resources to their companies. Nearly noArbortext specialists are out in the wild. Every new customer has to grow a specialist from scratch. And it’s not easy to do. The learning curve is high. You need to learn a new product and to learn how to implement it well. That takes time and resources.
To become a journeyman, an apprentice must first become a craftsman.
Consultants play a part similar to that of the journeymen of the guild systems: they often travel a lot, work at many different companies and spread new practices and knowledge between companies and corporations.
Our goal here is to is to expand the resources available to everyone in the community. If you’re working with the product — or just want to learn about it — please join us!
We’ll respond to feedback from our audience so we can all achieve what we all want to do: To be masters of our craft.
