Galvanize Customer Success Story

Latest Customer Success Story

Leading Governance, Risk and Compliance SaaS Provider Galvanize Facilitates Self-Support for its Customers Worldwide via Localized Documentation Websites with MadCap Software

When it comes to managing governance, risk and compliance (GRC), more than 6,300 organizations in 130 countries rely on Galvanize to gain visibility into their risk; demonstrate compliance; and grow their audit, risk, and compliance programs without incurring extra costs. Recognized as a leader by the world’s top analyst research firms, Galvanize provides the only cloud-based GRC platform to unite the objectives of audit, risk, and compliance professionals through data. Today, it is the GRC software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider of choice for many Fortune 1000 and S&P companies, along with banks, manufacturers, healthcare businesses, and government organizations.

With the adoption of MadCap Software’s solutions, Galvanize has been able to:

Create role-based documentation: Conditions, variables, snippets and TOCs in MadCap Flare enable Galvanize to produce six product-based documentation sites in seven languages.

Deliver documentation that facilitates self-support: Micro content, search functionality, and context-sensitive Help in MadCap Flare have led to a 43% increase in customers’ use of the documentation sites.

Streamline content delivery: Content reuse facilitated by MadCap Flare and the flexibility to support technical writer’s preferred authoring enables the team to match documentation to the product release schedule.

Support high quality localized content: Quality assurance features and tight integration between MadCap Lingo and Flare enable Galvanize to deliver superior localizations while eliminating translation redundancies.

Our Help sites encompass hundreds of topics and, in the PDF versions, thousands of pages. I can't imagine trying to manually manage the giant network of cross-references and links. Flare's automated tracking and updating of all those associations is critical to keeping our network of links healthy, and to giving us more time for creating user value with content.
