Research, Documentation & Analysis

We seek to know the customer's product better than the customer

02

"Manuals" not only come in various shapes and sizes but also serve a wide-range of purposes. "Operation manuals" for products function as a bridge between a company and its customers. Manuals may also refer to documents that span businesses, for example, a manual may explain to another business how to install or sell your company's product. For such manuals, we at Hotaru provide support at all stages of the production cycle from the planning phase through to further development, as well as total quality control.
