The business process outsourcing of technical documentation

We take over this responsibility so that you can fully concentrate on your core business.

Is your company facing numerous challenges due to digitalisation, demographic change and a shortage of skilled workers?

Do you have a great product and want to use your valuable resources for the further development of this product – and not have to take care of the creation of complex technical documentation by yourself?

We'll take full responsibility for your technical editorial processes, within the scope of business process outsourcing.

What our customers say about us.


"kothes took over this responsibility many years ago, not only for the creation of technical documentation for SIG, but also for the processing of daily business, translations, reprography and even hosting the Content Management System. This gives us more freedom to concentrate on our main task: the further development of carton packaging systems. Over the years we've come to know kothes, not only as a trustworthy and competent partner, but also as a company that's always available to advise us on the appropriate steps to take for the future of our technical documentation. Of course, this only works if you move, yourself! We're looking forward to continued successful cooperation."
