- Technical reviews
Have you ever struggled to communicate the unique features of your technology or product? Are your customers confused as to the difference between your technology or process and a competitor’s? Do you need to know what the state-of-the-art and current technology limitations are? Tau Technical can help connect your technology with your potential customers. Dawn has performed technical reviews on a variety of subjects, including power generation, waste-to-energy, recycling, renewable energy, and environmental issues. We are experienced at literature reviews and will compile, review, and summarize the relevant scientific publications. Literature surveys are an essential component for scientific grant proposals, so don’t shortchange this important step.
- Social Media Integration
Is your company effectively utilizing social media to reach out to potential customers, stakeholders, or the general public? If you feel like trying to keep up with the thought current on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social forums is overwhelming, Tau Technical can help provide some targeted strategies for getting your message out. Remember, if you aren’t engaged in the dialogue, then you can’t influence how people perceive your company or service.
Technical and Executive reports
Technical reports can be among the most challenging scientific communication materials to prepare because you need to accurately represent methodology, analysis, data, and results in a format that is clear, accessible, and enjoyable to read. We bring you the expertise necessary to produce an outstanding technical document that will contribute to the success of your business. We can also design and prepare a technically-based report geared toward the non-technical executive or congressional reader that is visually appealing, engaging, and succinctly conveys critical information.
White papers are a terrific way to highlight original work, elevate your company’s profile, and simultaneously market to potential customers. Tau Technical will help you create white papers with impact.
Ever sit through a technical presentation unable to read the graphics or tables on the slides? Your presentation is a representation of your company – jumbled, confusing, boring, or hard-to-read slides are NOT the message you want to send! Conveying technical data and results in an appealing and interesting format can be a challenge, but Tau Technical has creative tricks and designs that will make your presentation stand out above the rest.
Grants and proposals
We can help with any stage of the proposal process, from analyzing RFP requirements to compiling qualifications to final copy editing. Whether it is a small business grant or a large government agency proposal, Tau Technical will help your business maximize its chances for a win. Tau Technical offers a free proposal consultation to help you evaluate potential funding mechanisms and develop a proposal strategy.
Corporate newsletters and journals
A corporate technical journal is an excellent tool for firm-wide technology transfer and employee recognition. Corporate newsletters and journals are also great marketing vehicles that can be distributed to existing and potential clients, and used as conference/exposition takeaway materials. Transforming reports and materials written by engineering staff into a corporate newsletter requires the right balance of editing and marketing savvy that Tau Technical provides.
Corporate marketing materials
Don’t wait for the RFP to be issued before getting your key personnel and corporate qualifications developed. Tau Technical will help you develop cut sheets, project profiles, and qualifications statements that can be efficiently used in your next proposal. Cut sheets are also valuable marketing materials that can be sent to prospective clients.

Tau Technical can help you transform your outdated resume into a modern, effective description of your qualifications.
