Content design and strategy tools

Apps, software, and services for content design

Content creators at Intuit rely on a number of tools and processes. In addition to content management tools like the One Intuit Content Management System, there are tools that help us create clear, accurate copy.

Associated Press Stylebook

The AP Stylebook is the foundation for many of our editorial decisions. When we differ from AP, as we do in the United States on the serial comma (we always use it), we detail our exceptions on this site.

Readable

We use this tool to test and improve the clarity of copy and make sure we meet our readability level of fifth to eighth grade. Check with your manager for license and access information. Learn more about this tool at Readable.com.

Hemingway App

Some content designers and teams are using this tool to simplify copy and make sure it’s clear. See how it works at Hemingway App.

Writer

Formerly called Qordoba, this strings management tool uses the Intuit Content Design System and artificial intelligence to track the quality of product content and help content designers identify ways to improve the words we present to customers. Read more about Writer at writer.com.
