This is one of the biggest time-savers in any organisation. Customising the ribbon means adding an additional tab to the existing office ribbon and populating it with tools, styles, fonts, indents, spacing, numbering that conforms with your house standard.
All the authorbneeds to do is click on a button to apply a style or update a table of contents, print in colour to printer A or print in B/W to Printer B, paste in copied text using the Clean Text tool to avoid corrupting a document with alien styles. Click a single button to reliably restart numbering, plus many other useful tools that are usuallyhidden and tucked away under several menus. We have also built many custom tools.
The three main benefits of the customised toolbar are the consistent easy styling across all authors and documents, increased productivity and easier uptake by authors resulting in dramatically reduced training budgets.
It is simple for the IT section to distribute templates to WorkGroup folders or we can couple templates and customised ribbons so all styles and tools for that document type are available at the click of a button.
