“For me, there’s no better publishing tool for Technical Writers”

We are an agile department, so we're running fast and low to the ground, which means we have short time between releases. I need to be able to spend my time writing, developing, and designing, while still being able to release quickly. I pushed out an end-user doc "from scratch" last week, and our VP said that one document closed a 100K deal. I couldn't have done that without Flare.

“Robust Content Management”

If you are looking for an extremely robust content management solution, MadCap Flare is a great option to explore. The features are very deep and span web, mobile/tablet, and print outputs and solid stylesheet editing for each. The indexing and search tools to help both users on the front end find what they need, and authors on the back end find issues that are woven throughout large documentation are the best.

“Flare's strengths are in content management and is driven by a "write once, publish anywhere" paradigm”

MadCap Flare occupies rarified territory near the top of the desktop publishing mountain. It's intended for those who need to author, edit, and produce very long and very complex documents: technical manuals, instruction books, help systems, and anything else in which structuring and organizing content is key.
