According to Jowell Lydon, vice-president of Competitions, STC, Houston chapter, “We are pleased to present this top-level award to Uplogix for its superior work in technical writing. The competition has very high standards and Uplogix’ documentation clearly demonstrates each principal of technical writing, while employing visuals that provided a good balance."
