Document Management With Word

As organizations strive for higher quality and faster speeds, document management must not be a bottleneck to innovation. Arena and eBOM have partnered to offer an elegant solution for companies that want to simplify document management for teams using Microsoft Word.

Microsoft Word is the most common authoring tool for product and quality documentation, including specifications, standard operating procedures, and test requirements. Now, there’s an efficient connection between Word and Arena so document authors and editors can easily have documentation reviewed and released in Arena—while staying in Word.
