“You guys are the best. I’d be lost without Flare. I can’t even imagine having to go back to RoboHelp®.”
Dan Austin | Austin Technical Services

As the original creators of RoboHelp®, the founders of MadCap Software set out to create a company with a firm commitment to innovation, customer service, and developing next generation products used to create knowledge bases, online Help systems, policy and procedure manuals, software documentation and more. Over the years MadCap Software has focused on developing key product features while expanding its dedicated in-house support staff. Flare is now in its 9th release, and MadCap Software remains dedicated to its original vision.

Superior Capabilities
Built from the ground up to be the ultimate single-source and multi-channel publishing application, MadCap Flare uses the newest and strongest technologies available. Written entirely in C# and chosen by Microsoft® as a showcase application for their own Visual Studio product, Flare is revitalizing the technical communication industry. With online publishing capabilities that surpass RoboHelp® and print publishing comparable to FrameMaker®, MadCap Flare is a true single-sourcing tool designed to not only help save you time, money and resources, but improve the quality and accessibility of your documentation.

“I have worked with a number of tools in the past 28.5 years. Now, I am using Flare and it’s like driving a speed boat instead of riding a barge, in terms of content-to-multiple-outputs.
Mark Metcalfe | Documentation Director, Ektron

If You Have to Use More Than One Tool, You’re Not Single-Sourcing
RoboHelp® creates online Help. FrameMaker® creates PDF documents. Flare creates both, as well as an output for mobile devices, and much more. Save time, reduce redundancies and improve your documentation control with MadCap Flare.

“Single-sourcing has been my elusive holy grail for ten years. I tried FrameMaker® with WebWorks, I tried RoboHelp® with Word™, and it wasn’t until Flare’s output to print that I finally got good results without a lot of hassle.”
Chris Sullivan | AVST

Harold Gross | Caradigm, a Microsoft | GE Healthcare Company

Annual Release Cycle

“Flare is much easier to use, more intuitive and more powerful (and it seems more reliable and flexible) than any of the tools I have used so far, and I’ve used quite a lot.”
Donagh Brennan | Technical Writer, Tektronix
