A triple achievement at the tekom Annual Conference 2017

The International Congress Centre (ICS) in Stuttgart was alive and kicking from 24th to 36th October, 2017: around 4300 participants, more than 250 lectures, workshops and presentations along with 160 exhibitors all came together under one roof. For us at Zindel, the tekom conference was more than worthwhile:  a centrally-located booth, well-attended presentations – and two tekom “Dokupreis” awards!


From our booth in Hall C2, we presented solutions for various sectors, such as mechanical and plant engineering, medical and laboratory technology, software and technical consumer goods. Our method of creating print-ready instructions and HTML documentation for mobile devices and machine control units from a single source was met with great interest.

The lectures and presentations we gave were extremely well received: IN08 “SuchverSuch” by Lars Schiller, NORM06 “The safety instructions and warning notices-hopper” by Volker Wodaege and the MOB01 “Mobile Documentation Showcase” with Stefan Zindel drew particularly good responses from the respective audiences.

However, the greatest sensation for us was being able to win two tekom “Dokupreis” awards – despite the fact that only a few were awarded this year. In the print category, the booklet “Teriparatide BGW Instructions for Use” for our customer Welding’s osteoporosis pen achieved an overall score of 1.9. In the multimedia category, the EPUB “Caffeo Passione Operating Instructions” for our customer Melitta’s automatic coffee machines achieved an overall score of 1.8.

These rewards, which are, in fact, the seventh and eighth tekom “Dokupreis” awards we have received, certainly represent the high quality of our work. It’s difficult to say who is more delighted about the achievement: our employees, or our customers?
