For a while now we've been writing a blog called Pactum, in which we wax lyrical about contracts, agreements and all the fine print in between. Pactum deals mostly with news items (good and bad) which are relevant to people who spend their days writing, negotiating and managing contracts.
With the Engine Room, we're taking a different approach. We're blogging about a technology known as document assembly, with a particular (some might say shameless) focus on our own product, Exari.
The aim is to share our insights and experiences of real world document problems and what (if anything) can be done to solve them. We'll do our best to strip out the marketing fluff. We'll try to keep it practical and to the point. That's the plan, anyway.
Why "Engine Room"?
At its core, Exari is a document assembly engine, in the same way that Google is a search engine. With Google, you feed search terms in and the engine sends back relevant results (all going smoothly). With Exari, you feed answers in (typically via a web interview) and the engine sends back documents tailored to your needs.
It's almost like magic. Which is why some people call it a document wizard, I suppose.
Anyway, we hope you find the blog useful. Questions and comments are always welcome.
