AI Searchable Electronic Product Manuals VS Traditional Electronic Manuals

Traditional paper manuals are prone to getting misplaced and can be cumbersome to navigate, prompting many brands to switch to electronic versions. However, these digital manuals often lack interactivity, requiring users to painstakingly search for the correct model number or specific keywords within an electronic catalog to find their answers.

Users can swiftly pinpoint information using keywords, and the integrated AI search capabilities can further streamline the process by compiling answers quickly. This innovative approach enhances after-sales service efficiency and significantly cuts down the time users spend resolving issues.
