One of the most interesting requests from customers at the STC Conference Minneapolis was for a migration path from Flare to RoboHelp. Clearly, some of the customers, who had migrated from RoboHelp to Flare, want to come back to RoboHelp. We understand that they are attracted by the quality of Adobe products and the direction in which RoboHelp is moving. Any doubts they had were set to rest with the sneak peek of the features under development for RoboHelp. Customers also recognize an accelerated pace of innovation from Adobe in technical communication with three products (FrameMaker, Captivate and Acrobat 3D) in different stages of the pre-release program.
We continue to evaluate the business case for offering migration utilities to Flare customers. If you are considering a migration from Flare to RoboHelp, please let us know. Your inputs are valuable.
