Acrolinx and K15t Software Announce Partnership and Product Integration

New Ways for Wiki Authors to Create More Findable, Readable, and Consistent Content

Santa Clara, California and Stuttgart, Germany – June 19, 2014 – Acrolinx and K15t Software announced today that the two companies have partnered to integrate their software. Based on the Confluence collaboration platform from Atlassian, the combination of K15t and Acrolinx helps writers collaborate and create documentation that’s optimized for consistency, style, terminology, and tone of voice.

Atlassian Confluence customers may take advantage of this integration by deploying the new Scroll Acrolinx Connector.

“Our mutual customers now have access to the power of Acrolinx, to analyze their technical content against corporate standards for style, tone of voice, and terminology; guide writers to improve their content; and deliver analytics that show their results,” said Tobias Anstett, CTO, K15t Software. “We’re very pleased to offer support for Acrolinx to our customers.”

Acrolinx and K15t will present the joint solution at a webinar on June 24 at 10am ET. And in September, K15t will show its integration with Acrolinx at the Atlassian Summit 2014 conference in San Jose, California, September 9-11.

Andrew Bredenkamp, Acrolinx’s founder and chairman, said, “We’re impressed with the technical documentation capabilities that K15t brings to Confluence. And now that K15t supports Acrolinx within Confluence, they’re bringing the benefits of our platform to wiki-based writers for the first time. This is a great step forward!”

“We’re delighted that K15t is helping our Atlassian Confluence customers make higher quality content, by developing a connector to Acrolinx to be available in Atlassian Marketplace,” said Nick Wade, Head of Ecosystem at Atlassian. “Our Marketplace quickly brings more than 35,000 organizations and their teams to new offerings like Acrolinx so they can share, collaborate, and get more work done.”

The Scroll Acrolinx Connector is now available on the Atlassian Marketplace, and it’s compatible with Acrolinx 4.0.

Relationships Now Built on Content

Buyers complete 70% of their decision process before they talk to salespeople. Until then, buyers develop relationships with companies through content.


And not just marketing content. Many if not most buyers consult technical manuals and similar information before they buy.

Companies are starting to realize that their revenue increasingly depends on content – but their content often sounds inconsistent, long-winded, pompous, and complicated.

To create content that successfully builds relationships, it must be more than consistent and accurate; it must also be warm, easy to understand, and enjoyable.
