Intralox reduces desktop publishing costs by 99% and translation costs by 79%

Intralox is the global conveyance solutions leader, specializing in modular plastic conveyor belts and related services and equipment. The Technical Communications Group creates and maintains internal and customer-facing product documentation, such as product literature, design guidelines, manuals, policies and procedures. 

With the company slogan ‘Reliably Inventive’, it’s no surprise that Intralox is constantly looking for ways to do things better. That’s why in 2018, the company decided to evaluate their content strategy and change the way they produce, maintain and distribute their technical documentation.

Jonathan Chandler, Technical Communications Group Supervisor, Intralox
