Documentation of complex processes and projects

How to keep everything in one place

Detailed, comprehensive documentation is imperative, especially in times of GDPR. We need protocols for projects, processes, or test routines, and we need job instructions. But so few companies and teams are doing it at all, and even fewer are doing it right.

Testimonial

Why? Because everyone hates documenting stuff.

Documentation must become easier and faster. So we created Matterial. Because no one can remember everything. But if you know where it’s documented, you don’t have to.

Knowledge management saves the day

Knowledge management saves the day

Knowledge management and documentation are the backbone of all processes and projects — like a well-organized toolbox of a craftsman: everything is in its place, where it belongs. The toolbox of a company include experience, briefings, documents, data, reports, best practices or learning, and much more.

With a solid documentation process, you can harness the power of a whole team and integrate new team member efficiently.

The advantages of detailed documentation are easily attested:

  • fewer mistakes
  • less frustration
  • increased productivity
  • boost of self-reliance
  • saved resources by picking up where others left off

Still, documentation is treated like an orphan in most companies — too little, too careless, too incomplete. The reason is a missing toolbox.

The solution against knowledge loss

Documentation is important. But it’s damn hard, too. Until now.

We created a software that thinks differently about knowledge management and documentation: a new, easy-to-use knowledge database — your tidy toolbox. Because complexity usually is the major reason for neglected documentation: it takes too long and is too cumbersome to be part of a normal workday.

Speed, simplicity, completeness

Matterial’s focus is on speed in recording and finding information; usability, so everyone instantly knows how it works; and completeness which is fostered by its collaborative nature.

Create new knowledge in a twinkle and it is automatically sorted. Give access rights to the important people and they are notified. A smart search makes folder structures obsolete.

The best thing is: reviews and version management ensure you can be confident that you have the correct, up-to-date version of a file or a document. That’s how documentation becomes reliable and efficient
