    Wireless Access Policy

    We’re excited to announce our newest feature, Inline Images. Yes, most platforms already allow users to place images into their narrative, but this is something we de-prioritized while working on other key functions.

    New Features!

    New feature

    So much has happened since our last announcement. It’s incredible that a year has passed. I think we all can agree that 2020 has been a strange one with a surprise almost every month.

    If this year taught us anything, it’s that when things change, we’ve got to keep up. Remote workers need new Policies and Procedures in a timely manner to keep things moving. Read on to learn more. 

    Managing Policies A Better Way - With Articles

    Marketing

    At PolicyCo, Articles are the building blocks of every document. Each Article has a name, sequence number, an author, related controls (more about that later), attachments, and, most importantly, content.

    3 Ways to Organize Your Policies

    Employee Handbooks and Your Small Business

    Marketing

    Marketing

    Welcome to the first edition of our PolicyCo Weekly Update.

    We are excited about the progress that we’ve been making over the past several months at PolicyCo. 

    Policy Structure

    Marketing

    A Quick Overview of PolicyCo

    Marketing

    PolicyCo was born because a typical word processor doesn’t have the features required to track authorship and evidence down to a specific paragraph (article).

    Marketing

    Let’s face it, not much has changed in the world of policy writing. The medium has changed (handwritten, typewriters, computers), but the linear nature of writing has remained.

Organizations crafting policy face a similar set of problems once they embark on the writing process. Let’s explore the pain points in more detail.
