    Over the last 13 years, I created various user guides, administration guides, reference guides, troubleshooting guides, installation manuals, and Web help systems for a various engineering and software products and projects. My core competency lies in managing end-to-end documentation for software projects. But, I also work on improving and maintaining the existing documentation or create printed guides for a product. After working on different documentation projects, I developed professional expertise in using various documentation tools, such as Confluence, HelpGizmo, Wordpress, Help & Manual, Adobe RoboHelp, Adobe FrameMaker, Microsoft Visio, MS Office, and technologies, such as single sourcing, DITA, and content management system. In addition to documentation tools, I have good understanding of the software languages, such as C/C++, Java, PHP, CSS, HTML, and databases, such as MS Access, MY SQL, and so on.

    Content crafted to convince. Looking for a writer who can turn technical jargon into compelling content? Since 2008, I have been providing clients from tech and IT fields with content crafted to convince. My work has found its way to white papers, blogs, web sales pages, case studies, ebooks, brochures, PowerPoint presentations, flyers, sales letters, articles, and user manuals. Your product or service may be the best out there. But unless you're able to educate potential customers about it and ultimately convince them that it's something they really need, you'll never be able to hit your sales targets. That's why you need me on your team. I specialize in topics related to cloud computing, information security, and Big Data but can adapt to any IT subject. Some of the areas I've covered include: Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), Hadoop, hyperconvergence, ETL, SaaS, IaaS, BYOD, server and desktop virtualization, encryption, managed file transfer, business continuity and disaster recovery, managed services, e-discovery, business intelligence, and storage and backup. I have also blogged about laws and regulations affecting IT systems, like: SOX, GLBA, HIPAA and HITECH, PCI DSS, EU Data Protection Directive, Solvency II, transborder data flow regulations, and US state and territorial data breach notification laws.  less

    Hi! My name is Mary. I'm currently focusing on helping small and medium size enterprises set up their company into Xero. Either you have a new organization or simply want to migrate data from an existing accounting software, I'll be happy to offer my services. I will also do the bookkeeping after set up. I have 14 years experience in all facets of accounting work. I know Peachtree, Quickbooks online and Xero. I was also a customer service and sales staff and a virtual assistant. As an accountant, my most recent employer let me handle a wide range of accounting tasks. Every day, I did the bank rec, sent out invoices to customers, monitored bills and paid suppliers online through Comm Biz. I did fortnightly payrolls, superannuation payments and remittances to the ATO (Australian Taxation Office). Having experience as an administrative officer, I pride myself of having a good command of business English. I wrote many types of business letters, company policies, contracts, and company procedures. I also love organizing. I find it very liberating to use web apps for managing online work. These include Salesforce, Asana, Zoho, Time Doctor, and the entire list of Google apps for business. I am very fortunate to have had very fun people to work with. As you may observe from my feed backs, I had very good relationships with my clients. Thank you so much for taking time to check out my profile and I’m looking forward to working with you. Have a nice day.  less
