MadCap Software, Inc., a provider of multi-channel content authoring and a showcase company for Microsoft Visual Studio, announced the launch of MadCap Central, a cloud-based platform for content and project management designed specifically for the documentation industry.
MadCap Central is integrated with MadCap Flare, the company’s flagship product and an advanced single-source, multi-channel authoring and publishing solution. Together MadCap Flare and MadCap Central combine technical authoring software with a cloud-based publishing and content management environment to streamline the entire documentation workflow and enable documentation teams to manage projects and content in one centralized location. The result is a comprehensive, agile, and cost-effective alternative to enterprise content management (ECM) and component content management system (CCMS) solutions.
MadCap Flare is already 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. It allows authors to create and publish responsive HTML5 output with top navigation, which more closely resembles a modern, search engine-optimized, and completely customizable informational website. And its native XML architecture gives MadCap Flare the extensibility of leading ECM systems.
