QA Validation

Independent Review of Previously Converted Content

DCL Markup Check Provides Customized Quality Assurance

DCL's content quality assurance (QA) provides independent reviews of any conversion project. DCL Markup Check provides oversight for in-house or outsourced projects to provide third-party validation and peace of mind. QA can be performed pre-conversion to catch errors early in the process or post-conversion to ensure no errors appear in the final product.

The DCL QA Platform runs content against both Harmonizer and then a customized and configured quality check process. These automated checks ensure conversion quality and verify that specs and best practices have been followed.

The importance of having a plan and process for content QA

Assuring content quality in today's business environment is vitally important. Most content is an accumulation from various sources that builds up over time. Periodic review and analysis focuses efforts on identifying and improving ongoing content quality, consistency and accuracy.

Analysis

The first step in DCL Markup Check is content analysis, which quickly identifies areas for investigation. Organizations recognize immediate benefits including

  • Improved content consistency

  • Reduced development times

  • Rapid reconfiguration

  • Corrected typos

  • Lower maintenance costs

Ongoing Validation

Many organizations conduct QA and analysis around large conversion projects or system migrations. However, these systems lack the ability to perform regular QA check-ups as content changes and grows over time, and in many cases, critical content spans systems and repositories.

Ongoing QA validation is critical to keep your content and content structure consistent.

Automation

In the past, regular efforts to review content quality were manual projects and the resources were simply not available.

 

DCL’s ability in and knowledge of automating QA checks, which otherwise would have been done manually, decreases conversion turnaround and quality of the final product.

I have been very happy over the years with the work done for our company by DCL, but my latest situation just put it over the top for me. The willingness of the staff to redo work based on updated material that they had already processed and to do it so quickly and graciously was beyond expectations. I could not be more pleased!
