Customized On-site Microsoft® Office Training: 2007 – 2013

Software Simplified is in the business of helping organizations get the most out of their Microsoft® Office investment and meet their business goals. We understand that organizations are made up of staff with various job functions and therefore various MS Office use. We focus on the need to know features that will boost user groups’ productivity the most. A needs assessment is conducted to identify these key features which are then broken down into course levels. Staff can then sign themselves up for the most relevant courses. This ensures that we get the right people in the right courses. Our Certified MS Office trainers deliver training on site and in small group and one-on-one sessions. Off site alternatives are available.

Software Simplified services clients in the public and private sectors throughout southern Ontario.

“The Municipality of Port Hope had the opportunity to engage Software Simplified in our corporate upgrade to Microsoft Office Suite 2010…Software Simplified was engaged to develop a tailored training program to address a cross section of users at varying levels of expertise, and to design the training program to accommodate all 85 municipal employees schedules…we found Lorrie to be very pro-active, thorough and well prepared. Her style is personable, informed and easily adaptable to trainees’ needs. She easily imparts the knowledge required and creates balance between the power users and the lay people. Lorrie is exemplary in her skill set and we were very pleased to have her as part of our implementation team. We would highly recommend Lorrie and her firm!”
