Imagine that a regulatory body has implemented a new insurance regulation. In order to comply, you need to remove a certain paragraph from all your documents. How do you know which of your documents use this paragraph? How long does it take you to get this information, and how long does it take to delete the offending paragraph from all documents, correspondence and emails?
New advances in document automation, such as the concept of a document factory, are providing this level of insight and granularity. These advances not only make compliance significantly faster, they can greatly accelerate support for new products, and reduce the time, money and effort involved in producing effective communications.
