Xait

Xait (pronounced "excite"[]) is a software development company, specializing in Web-based database services. The company provides its customers with software for document publishing and collaboration. Its product XaitPorter,[1][2] is a collaborative-writing[3] software and is used by clients worldwide to create bids, proposals, financial reports, contracts and other business critical documentation. In Norway the majority of all Oil operators use XaitPorter for writing their drilling license applications.[] At the 22nd licensing round in Norway, 100% of the oil & gas operator licenses on Norwegian continental shelf were awarded to XaitPorter clients.[4]

Xait is headquartered in Sandnes, Rogaland, Norway with a sales and support office in Austin, Texas, United States.

Managed Collaborative Authoring Process

The Managed Collaborative Authoring Process is a document creation technique and term invented by Xait in 2001 by which a structured and controlled collection of tasks and events create repetitive business value through quality, efficiency and security improvements, when applied to a group of writers, reviewers and/or approvers.[5]

The reuse of documentation and a means to improve the processes surrounding this has been an issue since the late 1980s/early 1990s, when wordprocessing was embraced by the masses as the main tool for document production. David M. Levy wrote a paper on this back in 1993, highlighting some of the issues regarding document reuse. "The world, though continually changing, is changing incrementally.Much remains the same (unchanged) at any one time, at least at the granularity of description we typically care about. This means that documents only need to be updated incrementally; and incremental updating is more easily achieved when existing material is reused.[6]"

Allowing the company to structure and control the rate and quality of the re-use of content, as well as keeping in line with compliance and security, gives an approach for Best practice when reusing content.

XaitPorter is currently one of the commonly used document collaboration software packages that is in line with the managed collaborative authoring process.[7]

The company was founded in 2000 in Stavanger. Xait first started developing a content management system called XaitExposure and a customer relationship management product called XaitExonerate. In 2002 however, the company announced collaborative writing software called Publish-As-You-Go, later renamed XaitPorter.
