Word Wastage

This calculator will give you a rough approximation of just how much inefficiency with Word is costing you.

I know "It's only Word", but it might--just might--be an eye-opener!

That's quite a shocker, I think you'll agree?

"But it's only Word!"

I know. And that's why I know how much it's costing you.

I have some cracking testimonials from clients stating how I've helped them, and how much they've saved.

It's far more than cost or time savings, though.

Newly Discovered Productive Time

First off, that unproductive time is clawed back and can be transformed into productive time. If your team wasted 1 hour a day each with Word that's over half-day per week of never-before-had productive time - per person.  

Poor Morale

Also, have you, yourself, ever been lumbered with a tool you despise? How'd that work out for you?

How do you think your team feel being forced through the dreaded 'Word purgatory' on a daily basis?

Imagine the performance--the potential--if your team are both more productive and happier than ever before? (Happier staff are around 13% more productive, according to Oxford University and other sources.)

"Hi Russ,

I must admit, it is a joy to work on a docx file that has been set up properly. I know it does sound funny when somebody says it is a joy to work with WORD."

It doesn't take a lot.

If you haven't already checked my case studies out, I'd recommend doing so. Then you'll see how I saved:

  • 1 client around $50,000/year
  • Another over 200-hours per year
  • With yet a third, I saved them between $100k and $150k per year...

The savings are there. I guarantee it.

  • Even us power users curse Word sometimes, especially when for some unknown reason, one of our styles displays a black box instead of the number that it should show, corrupting the Table of Contents in the process. Or we fix a paragraph multiple times and it keeps insisting on changing back. Or we inherit a one-hundred page document that needs totally reformatting, one paragraph at a time. Enter Mr. Crowley’s course, Microsoft Word 2016 for Beginners*. 

    The one thing I liked best about the course was Mr. Crowley’s teaching style, clear, concise and reasonably paced. The material is thoughtfully laid out, one lesson flowing smoothly into the next.  Don’t let the course name fool you. After covering the basics, this course shows you how to do virtually anything that you might need. Document gotten so big that it could use a Table of Contents? Module 10. Need an index? Module 16. Want a numbered list and it needs sorted? Module 13. 

    These are just a few of the items taught in this course. You’ll definitely be scratching your head, thinking, “wow, I didn’t know Word could do that.

    Mr. Crowley could be called a “style and section evangelist”. He never misses an opportunity to emphasize that any misbehaving document probably has its roots in poorly-applied or unused styles and sections. I suspect this may be the root cause of my black squares for numbers identified earlier. After completing the course, the main benefit I have a better appreciation of Word’s bells and whistles, along with a resource for how to do things. I would recommend this course to users of all skill levels.
