A Statement of Professional Writing

It’s apparent that many successful organizations are cutting costs and lowering operations budgets by foregoing professional writing services. The use of poor communications vehicles leads to customer confusion, which spurs higher operations costs and decreased revenue. Profitable innovation is sacrificed when organizations are forced to field unnecessary communications issues.

Far too often the intricacies of authoring superior documentation is ignored for half-measures. Engineers, scientists, and business professionals who achieve great feats in their chosen arenas often believe they inherently possess technical writing skills. That arrogance has led many organization into stagnation or failure.

Definitive technical manuals, training guides, and marketing materials set the tone for an industry. Successful documentation fosters an environment for higher consumption, which then leads to increased revenue. In other words, professional writing is not an overhead cost, but a profit generating service.
