“ Software engineering and the rapidly changing technologies in the field require professors to quickly and easily manage information for classes. At the same time, students expect to be able to access information in many different formats, such as print, web, PDF and mobile. MadCap Flare provides us with the best means for providing up-to-date, targeted information in multiple formats from a single content source.”
