Our Approach

EDC’s approach is client-centric. We appoint a local engagement manager from one of our 30 nationwide offices who understands each client’s requirements. The engagement manager finds the perfect team of consultants (from a pool of technical writers, training developers, business analysts) to meet those requirements and is at the client’s disposal until the project is complete. The engagement manager is in constant communication with both the client and the consultants assigned to the project. This allows EDC to respond quickly to changing requirements and address concerns before they become problems. The engagement manager ensures that the work delivered exceeds client’s expectations and is up to the rigorous standards we apply to all of our work.

Our People

Our engagement managers are business professionals with years of experience in managing staff engagements. Our consultants are highly trained, experienced technical writers, training developers and business analysts. These professionals have specialized industry backgrounds and areas of competence and are screened carefully before assignments. With a staff of this caliber, EDC serves even those companies with a permanent staff of technical writers during times of peak demand. Whether you need one consultant for a short-term assignment, or a team of writers for a complete line of documentation, our people are ready to solve all of your technical writing challenges.

Our Clients

Our clients number over 300 and range in size from small businesses to large enterprises from both the private and public sector. They represent a wide range of industries including Healthcare, Financial Services, Technology, Consumer Products and more. EDC’s growth has been in direct response to client demand. As our client’s needs change we respond: whether it be to open a new local office to support the relocation of an existing client, or to quickly scale resources in response to the rapid growth in an up-and-coming industry.
