We are killing this job and I attribute most of that to the training that you provided us. I feel like there is nothing I can't do.
Single-Sourcing Solutions has been able to accomplish things that no one thought could ever get done. Single-Sourcing Solutions was brought in to our project for their expertise in Stylesheet development. Delivering fully-compliant, traditional MIL-SPEC print deliverables from S1000D source, a structure that doesn't really support the needs for MIL-SPEC.
The task was a daunting one. First, to produce print output for 25 variants and X customers from one highly-complex and highly-modular Stylesheet. Then, to produce IETMs for all of our customers from one highly-complex and highly-modular Stylesheet.
Personally, I have found them to amazingly responsive, dependable and highly reliable. Their team has operated as a true partner to us in delivering high quality work on time and in budget. I would definitely recommend them and will use them in the future.
During the time I worked with her, Liz was instrumental in bringing the many Technical Publications groups within Northrop Grumman together to help define Information Development best practices.
Its been a pleasure to work with her team. Liz is definitely one of the best consultants I have ever worked with. Liz is our go-to person when we have questions or issues with s1000D, Iso Draw or Arbortext software. I would recommend Liz to anyone, she is very dynamic, intelligent and if she does not know the answer she will get one for you. Thanks for everything Liz!!
Liz Fraley gave a great presentation to the STC Silicon Valley Chapter in March 2009. It was quite a crowd and the scale and complexity of the projects you deal with everyday boggles the mind. You and your company are always welcome at our events.
I recently was trained by Single-Sourcing Solutions in XSLT and FO. They assigned to me an expert who clearly had a deep understanding of the training material and beyond. Any question I threw at them they were able to offer an informed reply. After the first training session, I was already able to take what they had shown me and apply it to current projects and existing processes. Best training I have ever received!
At Northrop Grumman we needed to complete a large conversion effort in a one year effort. I needed experienced Arbortext editors. I did not have the time or budget to train anyone. Two writers did not have experience with Arbortext, but nagged me to hire them. They told me that they were being trained by Single-Sourcing Solutions. I took the risk and to my surprise they were well-trained and, in fact, taught me a few things that I did not know about the Editor. I would recommend Single-Sourcing Solutions to anyone, because they made me successful, and I did not even have a contract with them.
Avaya hired Liz to convert some documentation from FrameMaker to DITA. It was a great pleasure to work with her -- she understood what we wanted very quickly and was willing to try several samples until we had ironed out all the issues between the Frame source files and the desired DITA output. Once we had vetted the process, she delivered every conversion job quickly and efficiently. Liz is definitely one of the best consultants I have ever worked with, and I would gladly hire her again.
I originally hired Liz's team to support our IETM XSLT development. Once we realized how invaluable her talent and expertise were, we extended the contract in order fo them to develop the XSL-FO style sheets we needed for print output of the same data. The task was huge and growing steadily. She was able to reign in configuration of the stylesheets and made my life as the program manager much easier and less stressful. She and her team created customized reports, provided weekly status and also prioritized the work in a logical method in order to reach contract deadlines. I would not hesitate to hire Liz and her team in the future. Thanks Liz and S3!
