New Case Study from MadCap Software Examines How Mitchell International, Inc. Takes Advantage of Single-Source Publishing in MadCap Flare and Usage Insights by MadCap Feedback Server

La Jolla, CA, USA — January 8, 2013 — MadCap Software, Inc., the leader in multi-channel content authoring and a showcase company for Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Visual Studio and Microsoft XPS, today announced that it has published a new case study on Mitchell International, Inc. A leading provider of property and casualty claims technology solutions, Mitchell is using MadCap Flare, MadCap Capture, and MadCap Feedback Server to facilitate content re-use and collaboration while also creating an intuitive user experience. The full Mitchell case study is available here.

Founded in 1946, Mitchell is a leading provider of technology, connectivity, and information solutions to the Property & Casualty claims, Collision Repair and worker’s compensation industries. Today, the company processes over 50 million transactions annually for 300-plus insurance companies and more than 30,000 collision repair facilities throughout North America. To help customers with its software solutions, Mitchell provides Web-based Help and print documentation created with MadCap Flare. Among the key benefits Mitchell has realized:

  • Flare single-sourcing allows the same Flare project to be published as online Help and print documentation, and has enabled an 82% reduction in process time overall.
  • Flare Batch Targets and Command Line publishing enable significant process automation and let Mitchell integrate Help with the product 30 to 60 days earlier in the product lifecycle.
  • Integration with Microsoft SharePoint makes it easy to share content and ensure access to the newest version.
  • MadCap Feedback Server tracks how Flare-based Help is being used, offering Mitchell valuable insights into how to make the online Help more intuitive.
  • MadCap Capture for image capture and graphics editing allows Mitchell to tailor graphical elements to users’ different learning styles.

“We can put out more content, more completely, and more accurately than at any time in the history of Mitchell. Many project tasks have gone from taking days to hours and from hours to minutes using Flare,” says Don Rasky, senior technical writer for Mitchell. “The integration of Flare with SharePoint and TFS has been a tremendous resource that allows writers to focus on the content. Flare builds it, and everyone keeps on working. Without Flare, this wouldn’t be possible.”

“Feedback Server gives us insight into what our customers really need,” notes Sarah Westling, senior technical writer for Mitchell. “We can hone our content and/or add a How To demo to help the users get what they need. Most importantly, it’s helping us to help users do their job with our products.”

“As a premier provider of technology solutions for property and casualty claims, Mitchell has built its success on delivering the information people need, when they need it,” said Anthony Olivier, MadCap founder and CEO. “We are excited by the company’s impressive results in speeding its online Help and documentation delivery by using MadCap Flare for state-of-the-art publishing with TFS and SharePoint for version control and collaboration. At the same time, Mitchell is setting a gold standard for creating an intuitive user experience by combining the power of Flare with Capture and Feedback Server.”
