SMART Communications, Inc. offers a Starter Kit that lets companies do a proof-of-concept, then expand the scope on success.

The MAXit Starter Kits include one MAXit Checker license for either Microsoft Word or Adobe FrameMaker. There is a choice of dictionaries, either the aerospace Simplified Technical English (STE) or Plain English (PE). These Starter Kits include a Writer's Guide and email support for 60 days.

The Starter Kit lets the user explore the benefits of Text Simplification on their documentation.

What is missing?

The Starter Kit does not include text mining or Writer Training services. SMART offers a Dictionary Service Pack to add technical terms to the Starter Kit dictionaries through an email service.
