4D CONCEPT, an asset for the success of your documentation projects

A document production system contributes to enhancing a company’s performance, whether through publications for your clients or by ensuring in-house knowledge.

Your company is unique

4D CONCEPT designs audits and a continuous improvement journey for you based on recommendations that allow you to adopt the best practices required for any digital transformation.

Our Approach

What do our documentation audits involve?

Our documentation audits consist of observing various aspects of your production and use of information relevant to your company.
Thus, we conduct contextualized, personalized audits that enable us to report to you on:

Groupe 1701
The regulatory or legal context
Groupe 1701
Documentary processes and workflows:
Groupe 1701
The tools involved in your production and how you use them
Groupe 1701
Publications and their distribution
The steps

How is a documentation audit carried out?

A document audit begins with an analysis of the existing situation that addresses several aspects:

Groupe 1701
The thematic coverage of documentation (type and audience)
Groupe 1701
The documentary creation process (workflow)
Groupe 1701
The stakes and expected benefits
Groupe 1701
The format of existing documentary content
Groupe 1701
Who are the audit results addressed to?

All these preparatory parameters help define the representative panelists selected by the auditor

Audits are thus punctuated by interviews to collect and summarize all the above-mentioned points, which can be carried out on site or remotely, depending on the subject.
Regular exchanges with the audit requester are organized, enabling us to redirect certain areas of research or identify new avenues of investigation for analysis.
• An audit report and a summary of findings are delivered to the client as final deliverables. These reports can take various forms depending on the type of audit.


What topics are covered by our recommendations?

Following an audit or in response to a direct request, 4D CONCEPT offers recommendations for document information systems.
