Our clients realize a number of benefits by outsourcing their technical manuals to Allard. In most cases, technical writing workloads are not consistent; there's a lot of work to be done with a new product introduction, but at other times the workload is minimal. Many companies can't justify the cost of a full-time technical writer given this up-and-down workload.
As a result, many companies end up delegating their technical manuals to an engineer, manager, or marketing staff. How much are you paying that engineer to do technical writing? Doesn't it make more sense to have a professional technical writer creating a quality document?
And if you're using a contract tech writer on an hourly basis, take a minute to think about that. What incentive does a contractor have to finish the job early, or even on schedule? Working on a fixed-price basis, Allard strives to complete projects as soon as possible.
Allard is pleased to announce that we have recently entered an agreement with GMRE, Inc. to develop a new technical manual for the US Air Force.
In addition, Allard has been awarded a contract to update the USAF technical manuals for the second purchase of the highly-regarded FORCE refueling system manufactured by The Entwistle Company.
Allard works with several customers providing technical orders to the U.S. Air Force, particularly for equipment acquired by the Warner-Robins ALC in Georgia. In 2010, WR-ALC started requiring our customers to deliver SGML-tagged files for final delivery. If your company needs assistance with SGML work, give us a call. More information...
