The “Word” factor in Scribestar
15 Oct 2019
When we started building Scribestar we said the star in the process was the Scribe and not the content, we built the tools around the Scribe so they could create content efficiently. In contrast Microsoft Word puts the content in the forefront and then the people around the program. This is essentially why over time the separation between how content looks and is created is almost non-existent. This is the very basis of the Scribestar philosophy where we keep the content at the forefront and automate the bits around it for the user.
Our drafting and typesetting capabilities were designed to combat the limitations of desktop publishing tools and to remove the disconnect between the drafting and typesetting worlds in a single ecosystem. We have evolved these aspects to a point where our users have been able to get value and understand why the way forward is different to what has been done for thirty years. We now feel it only makes sense to take the next step and provide the ability to export content and the metadata into other formats, especially Microsoft Word using our structured content as the baseline.
We are now providing the ability to export documents in Scribestar to Microsoft Word to help our end users solve real world problems where all parties are unable to use the same technology to collaborate. While we want to fit into the ways our end users work today, we also think how people collaborate needs to change. We did this so members of deals teams can continue to fit into the process of collaboration on Scribestar using existing processes (albeit the element of automation is much less than just purely collaborating on our platform.). This is the first of many changes we are making to ensure there is flexibility in what we offer for our users.
