Irvine and La Jolla, CA, March 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MadCap Software, Inc. and Neudesic have released MadCap Pulse (http://www.madcapsoftware.com/products/pulse/overview.aspx), a documentation-centric social collaboration platform developed in partnership by the two companies.
Pulse is Neudesic's innovative enterprise social collaboration platform. MadCap Software is the leader in multi-channel content authoring and a showcase company for Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Visual Studio and Microsoft XPS.
The MadCap-optimized version of Pulse plugs into MadCap Flare (http://www.madcapsoftware.com/products/flare/overview.aspx), MadCap's flagship software for multi-channel, single-source publishing. Together, MadCap Pulse and MadCap Flare give authors the ability to deliver socially enabled online documentation that allows users to connect, collaborate and share knowledge with others.
"Neudesic and MadCap share a common belief that social collaboration capabilities should work seamlessly in applications and systems people already use," said Ramin Vosough, vice president of Neudesic Products. "MadCap Pulse is the first product that makes it possible for technical authors to collaborate on content with employees, partners and customers using social channels."
"From the start, we have been committed to delivering a superior customer experience with our state-of-the-art technical communications software," said Anthony Olivier, MadCap founder and CEO. "Neudesic, with its leading-edge social collaboration software, is enabling us to build on this commitment. With the addition of MadCap Pulse, interactive Flare-based content running on desktops, mobile devices or the Web offers users a whole new level of teamwork, collaboration and productivity."
MadCap Pulse for Socially Enabled Online Content
MadCap Pulse is the MadCap-optimized version of recently launched Neudesic Pulse 3. The social platform combines capabilities that enable people-driven collaboration, dynamic knowledge sharing, the creation of public and private groups, and task management that enhances team performance.
Like MadCap Flare, Pulse facilitates collaboration through support for Microsoft SharePoint and Office 365. MadCap Pulse pricing for 10 advanced users (employees) and 500 basic users (customers), including all upgrades and unlimited email support, starts at $1,500 for a 6-month subscription, or $2,400 for 12 months.
"The power of the Web means teams no longer have to work in the same location," said Parsa Rohani, Neudesic chief executive. "MadCap Pulse empowers these distributed users by adding a social layer to Flare-based content, transforming one-way communications into an interactive dialogue."
MadCap Pulse is being rolled out in conjunction with the launch of MadCap Flare 9.0. For more information, read "MadCap Releases Flare 9.0."
"By 2014, refusing to communicate with customers via social channels will be as harmful as ignoring emails or phone calls is today." - Carol Rozwell, et al. Gartner Report "Business Gets Social Examples Highlight Adoption Trends and Key Performance Indicators, March 2012."
