Welcome to the March issue of MadCap Insider. We’ve rounded up the latest tips and tricks from the MadBlog, added a webinar ideal for Flare newbies, and published a new white paper on single sourcing and localization best practices.

We’re excited to announce the MadWorld Europe 2018 conference in Prague features industry thought leaders from organizations such as VISA, Nestlé GLOBE, TEKOM Europe, and more. Early registration saves you $600 when you register by March 31; a final discount for the MadWorld 2018 conference in San Diego is also available through the end of the month.

Additionally, MadCap Doc-To-Help adds a new pre-written policy and procedure manual designed specifically for medical offices and organizations. The new pre-written document is a follow up to the Employee Handbook added earlier this year.
