Efficiently create and maintain help systems

Improve Your Document Distribution

ASSIST/TS enables users to deliver multiple types of document data to a 3270 mainframe application – not just text based windows – improving their screen-level or field-level help systems support. The easy-to-use ASSIST/TS menu-driven interface will guide even the most non-technical end-user through the process of creating and maintaining help systems.

With limited training required, ASSIST/TS immediately increases productivity, as developers can now easily access and distribute information while adjusting/changing existing data to meet end-user needs.

Additionally, to help create a user-friendly help environment, the new ASSIST Web Help feature allows end-users to display ASSIST/TS library members from a browser, regardless of whether the application runs on the IBM Bridge or custom-built application (Java, Java Script, HTML5, etc.).
