Procedure Conversion

Word to SmartProcedure (XML Database) Conversion


Importing From Word

The problem with Word and other word processors is that everything contains hard-coded formatting code. Writers spend a lot of their time formatting procedures to make them look "good". This means that they have to touch each and every step on each and every page resulting in tons of embedded formatting code.

SmartProcedures changes all that by using powerful tools to strip out the unnecessary formatting and transforming the content into "gold" and creating standardized property-driven XML.
