Owner’s Manual


There is no better way for a company to make its product accessible to users than to provide an Owner’s Manual. Owner’s Manuals provide documentation for a product, whether the product be a complex technical service or a simple item. A technical writing team can construct a digestible Owner’s Manual for your customers, no matter how complicated the subject. While it can be very difficult to communicate highly specific or technical information in an accessible way, a well-versed technical writer has the skills to translate complicated information into a simple and easy-to-read format.

What is an Owner’s Manual?

An Owner’s Manual is a piece of technical documentation that outlines everything a consumer should know about a product. This documentation often covers a wide variety of topics, from product usage instructions to safety warnings to warranty information. These manuals are included with nearly every purchase, from smaller purchases, like a wireless mouse, to larger items, like a car. The size and scope of an Owner’s Manual can vary depending on the complexity of the product, as well as how much information the producer thinks the user needs to know in order to use the product. A technical writing team can properly assess how much information should be included in an Owner’s Manual.

Benefits of Owner’s Manuals

Owner’s manuals make products easier to use for consumers and document everything that a user would need to know about a product. Some of the benefits of technically proficient Owner’s Manuals are that they…

  • Inform users about their product with comprehensive information, without overwhelming them with unnecessary information
  • Limit legal liability to the misuse of a product
  • Make it easier for consumers to find answers to questions without referring to employees
  • Can boost, or help maintain, brand image and style
  • Provide literature for people to sell your product
