Also, Businesses spend a lot of money paying technical writers. Updating and translating docs is a problem that consumes a lot of time and money.
Docsie can reduce the time and cost of creating docs by up to 60%, by simplifying creation of product docs.
Problem or Opportunity
Product documentation sucks. It is never clear enough, no one ever wants to write it, users never understand it. There are over a million of technology products in the world in dire need of better product documentation. Great products suffer due to lack of it, but who has the time to write it and who can afford the expensive tools to create it and maintain it.
Solution (product or service)
Docsie.io is changing the way technology companies write and maintain their product documentation and user guides. We are creating amazing tools that help companies create easily maintainable product guides and docs. Version them, translate them and then embed them into their own products with 1 line of code.
Then we plan to empower businesses with advanced tools to help them understand how their users interact with their documentation and guides and where their users fail and leave.
We are essentially creating a smart product documentation and product guides platform and marketplace that makes it easy to businesses to create product docs and guides that customers love.
