No matter how much you rely on your practice management or time/billing software, chances are you and your staff spend more than in Microsoft Word than any other software application. Utilizing Word effectively and efficiently is a key to your firm's profitability.

To help you maximize your use of Word, Affinity now offers a variety of Word related services. These include:

WORD TEMPLATE BUILDING AND DOCUMENT REPAIR

If a Word document is set up properly, it's effortless to edit and the formatting won't go sideways on you. Automatic paragraph numbering will work perfectly while cross-references, tables of contents and tables of authority will automatically update to reflect subsequent edits. Awkward page breaks simply will not happen, and paragraph alignment and spacing will always be correct. If you're tired of wrestling with your complex documents and want them fixed once and for all, we can help. We can fix any document, no matter how bad it is and convert it to an easy-to-use Word template. The cost is a flat $5 per page. If you have many documents to fix, we also provide volume discounts. After your first document is converted, we'll provide a free 10 minute webinar to show you how to use the formatting tools we'll build into the document.

WORDPERFECT TO WORD DOCUMENT CONVERSION

Many firms have legacy forms in WordPerfect format that they would like converted to Word. Unfortunately, letting either program handle the conversion usually results in a formatting mess. If you have better ways to spend your time (and we're sure you do), let us handle the conversion. We can convert any WordPerfect document into a perfectly formatted Word template with Word's highest-end formatting tools built in. The cost is a flat $7 per page and if you have many documents to convert, we offer volume discounts. After your first document is converted, we'll provide a free 10 minute webinar to show you how to use the formatting tools we'll build into the document.

LEGAL USER'S MICROSOFT WORD MASTERS CLASS

Once Word's highest-end formatting techniques are mastered, 100% of the formatting problems you've experienced when drafting new documents can be completely avoided before they happen. This one-day class (7 hours of instruction) focuses on the most important (and misunderstood) Word features:

• Styles

• Single and multi-level automatic paragraph numbering

• Paragraph cross references that automatically update

• Tables of Contents which automatically generate and update

• Tables of Authority which automatically generate and update

• Complex page numbering (start on a page other than 1, start numbering over in the middle of a document, switch from Arabic to romanettes, etc.)

These classes are taught by Word experts and all of our trainers are also lawyers. The classes are hands-on, on-site at your office (or other facility you direct), and can be completely customized around the types of complex documents your office generates. The classes can be taught in Word for Windows or Word for Mac and you'll receive our 350-page, legal-specific Word manual as well. Finally, for each day of training you sign up for, you'll get one free day of technical support covering any Microsoft Word issue. The classes are a flat fee of $2,500/day + reimbursement of travel expenses. The fee is unaffected by the number of attendees.
