New case study from MadCap Software examines how Blackbaud takes advantage of Microsoft TFS integration, global linking, and single-source publishing in MadCap Flare

La Jolla, CA, USA – November 13, 2012 – MadCap Software, Inc., the leader in multi-channel content authoring and a showcase company for Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Visual Studio and Microsoft XPS, today announced that it has published a new case study on Blackbaud. A leader in technology solutions and services for nonprofits, Blackbaud is using MadCap Flare to collaborate internally and with its clients, customize content, and publish it in clients’ format of choice whether in print, on the Web or on mobile devices. The full Blackbaud case study is available at: http://www.madcapsoftware.com/casestudy/Blackbaud.aspx.

For more than three decades, Blackbaud has combined technology and expertise to help nonprofit and education organizations achieve their missions. The company now enables more than 27,000 clients in 60 countries to raise over $100 billion each year. To help the developers and end users at these organizations use its cloud-based and on-premise software solutions, Blackbaud delivers user assistance content created with MadCap Flare. Single-sourcing in Flare allows Blackbaud’s user education team to publish the same content to users’ format of choice. Meanwhile reuse of content with Flare promotes efficiency and ensures consistency, and integration between Flare and Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) facilitates collaboration. Among key benefits Blackbaud has realized:

* Global linking allows content to be reused for multiple online Help and print documentation projects. For example, some 35 projects with common content are used to create different variations of online Help and PDF files for different applications.

* Single-sourcing allows the same Flare project to be published as Web Help, mobile Help, PDF files, and Word documents.

* Topic-based authoring makes custom documentation fast and simple to produce.

* Separation of style and content makes it easy to customize the look and feel, such as making Blackbaud Web Help look like the main Blackbaud website.

* Mirroring enables synchronization between Web Help and mobile Help, ensuring the timely and consistent delivery of information.

* TFS integration facilitates collaboration within Blackbaud.

* Word output lets Blackbaud incorporate feedback from clients, who almost universally use the application.

Flare Users at Blackbaud Share Their Experiences

“Within a couple days, we were able to deliver a customized user manual as a Word file, so the user could make additional changes,” said Denise Kadilak, Blackbaud information architect. “Before we had Flare, this wasn’t an option.”

“With more than one person working out of our content sets, we would have had a hard time tracking versions if it weren’t for Flare’s TFS integration,” says Tom Tregner, Blackbaud enterprise training engineer and now also a certified MadCap Application Developer for Flare.

“We need to publish to Word, PDF files, the Web, and mobile, and Flare lets us do that all from the same project,” said David Owens, Blackbaud user education manager.

“As a global leader in helping non-profit and education organizations to raise funds and build their membership, Blackbaud understands the requirements for supporting the information needs of a very diverse community,” said Anthony Olivier, MadCap founder and CEO. We are thrilled by Blackbaud’s success in using our state-of-the-art MadCap Flare to customize the content its clients receive and deliver it in their preferred format, whether it's a PDF, Word document, Web Help or mobile Help. We are also excited by how Blackbaud is taking advantage of Flare to enhance its collaboration both internally and with its clients around the world.”
