Personalised templates - a pattern for business
Corporate Identity is important
Many companies spend many thousands of pounds on developing and maintaining a corporate identity, which presents them to their customers in the best possible and most professional manner.
A problem can arise when that shiny new identity is applied to everyday working documents. Letterheads, quotes, profiles, case stories, spreadsheets, charts and presentations. The daily users in the office or on the road may not have the same respect for that identity and its usage, and will often unintentionally take short cuts or even misappropriate the design and feel of documents.
It is vitally important that your everyday communication reflects the corporate ID and lives in harmony with your professionally designed brochures, presentations and other promotional literature.
Most companies use Microsoft Office as the backbone of their documentation production, but fail to make full use of the controls and identity preserving measures that can be applied or the wide range of design controls that can help preserve a corporate identity.
Did you know that you can apply your identity to every document that leaves the office and have a measured control on its appearance and structure?
Did you realise that you can have templates built in to your 'templates directory' that will allow Microsoft users to select 'New' from template and open up a fully styled document with controlled typefaces, design and layout that can match your corporate identity. And, more importantly, the process is made far easier for the user with issues of layout, font size, colour and format all handled by the template - the user simply has to type in the required information to produce a fully formatted document in company style.
Templates can be created for all Microsoft Office documents - Word, Excel, PowerPoint. They can be as easy as an embedded graphic for a letterhead, corporate style for a presentation or simple header and footer content for spreadsheets. Complex macros can be used to define style, font and colour to ensure that your documentation always reflects your corporate style.
