The Value of this Product

The Template describes the overall business process and will often contain embedded IDBS Spreadsheets. Template Documenter delivers a Word Document which describes the template and at the press of a button will generate an accurate and up to date summary of the template. This automatic generation of the Word document eliminates errors and cuts down on the time of documenting the template. It also ensures a consistent and complete documentation set is produced for the templates.

The Template Documenter complements the Spreadsheet Documenter and there is some overlap. The Products are maintained separately as some customers only document the Spreadsheets and not the Template.
