Visuals Add Value

Clear, simple to-follow technical illustrations play a critical role in your product support materials. In the current environment, technicians typically looks first to the illustration, then to the text. An accurate technical illustration provides a clear representation of the product which reduces critical repair times and costs. The illustrators at CLS work with the technical writers and parts catalogers teams to achieve accuracy and consistency between the visual and narrative stories whether in a stand-alone document or across many volumes of a manual set.

We can take a wide range of source materials and use the best tools from our extensive software expertise to produce the visual you require.

Technology and Next Level Visualizations

CLS is an innovator with the development and implementation of computer technology in the field of product support. We embrace new advancements when they help us provide better quality products or faster results. If the required software does not exist, CLS will build it.

Often we can extract technical data from engineering systems or drawing/model metadata to enhance interactivity on electronic mediums such as IETMs, client applications, and websites. This empowers end users to engage with the product material much more so than with a traditional manual. With a single click, a user can order a part, jump to troubleshooting procedures, reference a disassembly animation, or view an interactive wiring diagram or anything relevant to their current task.
