Acrolinx and MadCap Software Announce Partnership and Product Integration

Acrolinx content optimizationAcrolinx and MadCap Software announced that the two companies have partnered to integrate their software. The combination helps writers not only create technical content, such as manuals, knowledge bases, and online help systems, but also optimize it for consistency, grammar, terminology, and tone of voice.

MadCap SoftwareWriters with access to both products can use MadCap Flare to create their content and Acrolinx to improve it. The writer activates Acrolinx within the Flare user interface, which triggers Acrolinx to analyze the content, return a scorecard of the results, and guide the writer to make improvements. The result is content that is more findable, readable, and engaging.

“Mutual customers now have access to the power of Acrolinx to analyze their technical content against corporate standards for style, tone of voice, and terminology; guide writers to improve their content; and deliver analytics that show their results,” said Francis Novak, VP of Product Management. “This is a big and exciting step forward.”

“We are seeing a rapid rise in the global adoption of our MadCap Flare software for single-source publishing of a range of technical, corporate and marketing content—in print and on the Web, desktops, and mobile devices,” said MadCap Founder and CEO Anthony Olivier. “The partnership with Acrolinx and integration of our software extend our commitment to delivering software that empowers our customers to deliver superior content to their users.”
