Allard is a technical writing services company, providing turn-key technical manuals for our clients. We specialize in technical writing, with an emphasis on "technical".
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.
