To us, Fischer Computertechnik is more than a qualified partner providing an editing system

The FCT experts help us identify new approaches and ways to improve and make our procedures in the technical documentation department more efficient so that we can always remain at the forefront. TIM is the right product for us because we need a system that can always be adapted to continuously changing requirements and offers many different interfaces for editors, translation management systems and ERP systems.

TIM by Fischer Computertechnik is an editing system tailored to our needs, combined with support from a friendly, highly competent and local team. In short, FCT helped us abandon our time-consuming and unstructured way of working in the past and introduce 21st century content management.

  • Providing mobile documentation on an exclusively mobile product was a central challenge for an integral solution.
  • Content had to be logically and clearly presented on a small display.
  • The mobile device is used for inventories in public areas, and for data capture based on a map in the field.


  • In a publication process, modular information units from the TIM editorial system were used to create a modern HTML5 app which can be updated at any time and is therefore adapted to the version of the application.
  • The navigation tree is made up of topics and chapters, which are automatically interpreted. Error codes can be used as quick, specific references in the mobile documentation, as required.
  • The integrated navigation concept offers different navigation paths within the app and ensures intuitive use.


  • All possible requirements on modern mobile documentation used directly on the mobile device and within the mobile product, are completely met.
  • Since the app design is responsive, it easily adapts to the vertical and horizontal format of the device and looks great from every angle.
  • The user is able to find any required information quickly and easily thanks to the efficient full-text search.
  • The separation of content, navigation and design in the app makes for seamless switches to other products with different layouts.
  • The use of HTML5 technology and a presentation via the installed browser enables offline consultation, offering a wider application area.
