Default Looking for new Publisher to help with hyperlinks


I'm looking into software packages for publishing that will allow me to create around 80 individual manuals but where each manual can link (hyperlink) to each other.

For example I have a Setup Manual, a Troubleshooting Manual and Service Manual.

When a technician is setting something up and happen to run into a problem, they need to troubleshoot. The Setup manual therefore has links to the Troubleshooting manual. They can be generic "see Troubleshooting Manual ####" or detailed "see section 11.2 of Troubleshooting Manual ####".

While troubleshooting they may need to replace a defect part with a new one and therefore there are links to the Service manual. After replacing with a new component, it needs to be setup so there is a link to the Setup manual.

The above is a slight simplification as we have around 80 manuals where the around 60 of them are detailed setup manuals for specific components.

I'm looking for a publisher that can help define and maintain the 1,000 of links within all the documents and publish in a format that a technician can read easily and not have to open multiple files manually. They can simply click the hyperlink and it opens the other manual and brings the user directly to that section. Much like a webpage works.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you,
