MadCap Software Launches Content Management Solution Designed for the Technical Documentation Industry
MadCap Software, Inc., a provider of multi-channel content authoring and a showcase company for Microsoft Visual Studio, has launched MadCap Central, a cloud-based platform for content and project management designed for the documentation industry.
MadCap Central is integrated with MadCap Flare, MadCap’s flagship product for single-source, multi-channel authoring and publishing. Together, the vendor says, MadCap Flare and MadCap Central combine technical authoring software with a cloud-based publishing and content management environment to streamline the documentation workflow and enable documentation teams to manage projects and content in one centralized location.
MadCap Flare is currently used by thousands of companies worldwide to create and publish their technical documentation, user guides, instruction manuals, online help, and support websites to any number of print, web, desktop and mobile formats—in users’ languages of choice.
MadCap Central is a cloud-based content management solution designed for the creators of Flare-based content. With MadCap Central, the company says, technical communications professionals can facilitate collaboration among teams and departments, automate publishing, track tasks and projects, manage user permissions to control access and maintain quality, and host projects and content in the cloud—all from one central location. Additionally, MadCap Central can grow to meet the demands of any size organization.
“From the start, our mission at MadCap Software has been to create a superior experience for technical communications and documentation professionals by empowering them to efficiently develop and deliver state-of-the-art technical content,” said Anthony Olivier, MadCap founder and CEO. “Our new cloud-based MadCap Central builds on this commitment by putting a comprehensive content management solution, which is designed specifically for content creators and extends the functionality of our industry-leading MadCap Flare software, within the reach of companies of all sizes.”
