Information and Instruction that Helps People Get their Work Done
We listen, clarify the problem you are trying to solve, and propose targeted solutions to deliver the right information or instruction, to the right people, at the right time, in the right form.
We research and analyze user needs and business goals, and design appropriate documentation and training solutions that address both.
Writing, Design, and Development
We design and develop documentation, help systems, web-based information, course materials, and customized training. We are experts in topic-based authoring.
Our portfolio includes award-winning help systems and manuals.
Coaching, Training, and Workshops
We can help your team develop the communication skills you need in-house.
We also work one-on-one with individuals to improve their skills.
