Project Services

Every piece of writing that your organization produces becomes part of your story.

Tell your story better with skilled writers and editors who develop your content throughout the writing process. Choose a writing and revision schedule to manage your involvement. Projects include a quality assurance review by ProEdit editors.

The following services are a sample of our most popular projects. Clients are constantly pushing the envelope with new ideas and innovative forms of communication. Tell us what you’re looking for, and we’ll customize a project plan. Generally, projects include writing, editing, formatting, or some combination of the three.


Writing well takes experience, knowing your audience, and understanding your purpose. Technical writers and copywriters invest time in understanding our clients’ business objectives before crafting new projects.


Editing makes writing more engaging while correcting spelling and grammar. Give editors the autonomy to revise your writing, have them focus strictly on correcting mistakes, or choose something in between.


Skilled formatting creates visually appealing documents, training materials, slideshows, websites, etc. Also, formatting automates styles and text features to boost writing efficiency and simplify upkeep over time.

Elearning Development

Elearning is a great way to standardize onboarding, upgrade employee skills, and improve customer understanding. ProEdit instructional designers apply adult learning principles to develop target learning outcomes. Then, we build a complete elearning course, pausing at key steps to ensure development meets with your approval.

Elearning Options

Custom elearning takes many forms. Illustrated characters act out scenarios. Animations bring training to life. Computer-generated voiceover is easy to update over time. Live voiceover adds a human element. Branded color schemes reinforce company messaging. All of these features are available in ProEdit’s suite of computer-based training tools, including the following:

Course Analytics

Courses are built into topical modules and include assessments to evaluate how well users apply what they learn. Learning management systems (LMSs) run the elearning courses and track user progress and assessment performance. This demonstrates the program’s effectiveness.

Doug’s Background

When DOUG DAVIS founded ProEdit in 1992, he wanted to build a company where writing was the main thing and whose evolution would be solely based on the needs expressed by its customers. What started with turnkey projects developed into staffing services, and then instructor-led training. Facilitating technical writing and instructional design courses allows Doug to share insights gained from over 30 years as a practitioner in the industry. Teaching also gives Doug ideas for services that ProEdit should offer in the future.

Doug is honored to share his insights and expertise as lead trainer and consultant for ProEdit’s instructor-led training and coaching program.
