It also provides for shorter review cycles. Cost Savings. Employees with access to their company's style guide spend fewer hours writing, reviewing, and correcting documentation. A style guide reduces the expense of repetitive training and prevents costly mistakes that result when an operator, for instance, is forced to read inconsistent or poorly written operating instructions.

Externally, your company enhances its image by developing and using an effective time- and money-management tool and by consistently producing quality documentation. ]
