Working With Your Subject Matter Experts

InfoPros understands the importance of keeping your engineers and senior operations personnel focused on their core competencies.

That is often one of the primary drivers for companies contacting InfoPros; offloading SMEs becomes a business imperative.

SMEs have two basic responsibilities: providing information that will comprise the content of a project and reviewing the content InfoPros creates or updates.

Providing information: Whether source material is available or not, InfoPros has a process for reducing the impact on SMEs during our information-gathering process.
