Hello,

We're looking to convert our unstructured FM 11 templates to structured but do not have the resources internally to do it. Does anyone have any agency/contractor recommendations that can develop structured templates?

Thanks for the help!

Forgot to add: need them to migrate existing books created in unstructured templates to the new structured templates.

Depends on where you are located – you could go with people like Sarah O’Keefe at Scriptorium, Bernard Aschwanden, Anne Rockley of the Rockley Group, etc..

Hi Bernadette,

There are a number of consultants out there that can do this sort of thing, including myself. Some do very good work. However, I would strongly recommend that you reconsider the choice to outsource. Developing a structured template is not that hard. If you do it yourself, you will know how it works. Furthermore, it is more likely to fit your workflow. Conversely, an outsider will not know the details of your environment and may just deliver something that looks slick but doesn't work well. Plus, you may find yourself paying forever if you need updates, which templates always do.

If you are completely new to this, maybe a little training and/or initial consulting might speed things up. However, in the end, I think that template development is a basic task that a techcomm department should have complete control and knowledge over.

Just my two cents. Apologies to the consultants that come after and offer their services, especially those who are (or at least used to be) my friends.
