Product Benefits and Highlights

Leverage Existing Content

Like many authors and organizations, you need to leverage hundreds and even thousands of existing documents created using other products. Flare's import process makes it easy to migrate a wide range of file types into your new XML-based authoring environment. Migrate legacy content from Adobe® RoboHelp™, Adobe® FrameMaker®, Microsoft® Word™, .CHM, DITA and many more. No coding knowledge or special skills required.

 

Authoring and Content Reuse

Using Flare's patented, visual XML editor, authors can enjoy the benefits of XML (extensible markup language) without any need for XML knowledge. With XML, content is separate from formatting and therefore allows the author to focus on content creation. The authoring process is further enhanced and streamlined using advanced topic-based authoring features that further allow for maximum content reuse and publishing to multiple deliverables and outputs.

 

Multi-channel Publishing

Publish content to a variety of formats including cross-browser, cross-platform online Help, printed documents such as PDF and Word™, and online Help optimized for mobile devices.

 

Project Management and Collaboration

Flare makes it easier to manage complex projects with advanced tracking and reporting tools. File Tagging allows you to assign tags to topics, files, even folders, within Flare. Assign tags for authors or milestones and generate reports based off of the assigned tags.

 

Content Management

Flare allows for full content management capabilities with direct integration and access to Microsoft SharePoint. In addition, Subversion, Microsoft Team Foundation and Visual Source Safe are directly integrated and accessed from Flare, enabling built-in source control for efficient team authoring and collaboration. Not using source control? Flare's external resources feature allows files and folders to be mapped and shared among any number of projects or users.

QR Codes: Bridge the Gap Between Print and Interactive Online Content

In an online and searchable document, it is easy to include hyperlinks, URLs, etc., for users to access more information, but how do you enable this from a print document? With QR codes, authors can empower their users in ways never before possible, by giving them access to more relevant, actionable and up to date content wherever and whenever they need it, directly from any print document.
