  30. 30. Rave Reviews The Adobe Technical Communication Suite is revolutionizing the industry for technical communicators and writers. Instead of using a handful of individual products to complete projects, technical communicators can streamline workflows, reduce opportunities for error, add interactivity and rich media to technical documents and help systems, as well as improve collaboration in the review process; all by using the only single major software solution available on the market today – Adobe’s Technical Communication Suite. As a long time industry veteran, I’m impressed by the level of integration and features found in the suite and recommend it as the fundamental software for anyone in technical communication to own.” --Kevin Siegel, Founder and President, IconLogic
