The challenge

As AUSVETPLAN grew in complexity to 95 documents, the need emerged for a digital solution to help manage the review process. Our solution was an online document collaboration tool designed to simplify co-authoring, editing and reviewing documents in real time. This enables Animal Health Australia to easily collaborate with many people located throughout australia.

Taking collaboration online

AUSVETPLAN authors now collaborate online and via teleconference. Previously, contributors travelled from across Australia to attend meetings—a significant cost in time and travel. More experts are now involved in reviews, as it’s easy for them to contribute in MasterDocs.

Agile Authoring workflow

Through MasterDocs, multiple AUSVETPLAN authors to work on the same document simultaneously. Using our Agile Authoring workflow, each document is split into small parts, so that each section can move independently through reviews and approvals. This creates a continuous flow of feedback and changes, and reduces publishing timelines.

Accurate and reusable content

The integrity of each manual is maintained through the ability to reuse information from one manual to another. Text updated in one place is automatically updated across multiple documents, saving time and maintaining accuracy.

An easy transition

In moving Animal Health Australia to MasterDocs, we developed a customised workflow to align with the AUSVETPLAN authoring and review process. End users quickly adapted to MasterDocs’ easy-to-use and intuitive interface.

A successful result

MasterDocs delivered a complete solution. The easy-to-use, web based tool allows more than 50 contributors in dispersed locations to write, review, collaborate and comment on documents at the same time. Manuals are more easily updated, include more reviewers, and play a greater role in keeping Australia’s livestock healthy.

We have seen major cost savings in staff time, resourcing and travel costs, saving us $50,000 in the first year.
