La Jolla, CA, April 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MadCap Software, Inc., the leader in multi-channel content authoring and a showcase company for Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Visual Studio, today announced that MadCap Central integrates with Slack from Slack Technologies Inc. Slack is the leading cloud-based team collaboration and communication platform. MadCap Central is the first cloud-based platform for content and project management designed specifically for the technical documentation industry. Through the integration, MadCap Central users now can collaborate and receive MadCap Central notifications on their Slack channels.

MadCap Central is the content management solution built for and integrated with MadCap Flare, MadCap’s flagship product and the technical authoring industry’s leading single-source, multi-channel authoring and publishing solution. MadCap Flare is used by thousands of companies worldwide to create any type of technical documentation—such as online Help, support sites, user manuals, and policy and procedure guides—and publish it to any format or device, from print to responsive design for web, mobile or desktop use. MadCap Central enables creators of Flare-based content to 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 from one central location.

Significantly, MadCap Central offers the ability to track and manage tasks by viewing them through a task board or calendar view. At the same time, users can get full project visibility by using customizable dashboards and widgets—objects that make it easy to see important information at a glance—for quick and easy access to calendars, build history, cloud storage usage, project properties, and other resources. Highly scalable, MadCap Central can grow to meet the demands of any size organization. The result is a comprehensive, agile, and cost-effective alternative to enterprise content management (ECM) and component content management system (CCMS) solutions.

The newest release of MadCap Central now enables users to integrate with their Slack accounts in just a few easy steps. Users then can receive a number of MadCap Central notifications on their Slack channels, including:

  • Users: when a user has been added to or removed from a project.
  • Builds: if a target from a project is generated, whether a manual start, scheduled start, or rebuild.
  • Teams: when a team has been added to or removed from a project.
  • Tasks: if comments or files are added to a task.
  • Projects: with changes to a project’s status, such as activated, locked, or archived.

“Our mission with MadCap Central is to create a superior content management experience for technical communications and documentation professionals by delivering an agile, comprehensive solution designed specifically for content creators,” said Anthony Olivier, MadCap founder and CEO. “We are now extending this commitment by enriching users’ collaboration through integration with Slack, increasingly the platform of choice for communicating across teams.”

It includes 10 GB of storage per company account (with additional storage available), free product upgrades and updates, platinum-level maintenance and support with unlimited email and telephone support, a knowledge base, and forum access.
