Still running Windows XP and Office 2003?

If your firxp-and-officee-eolm is still running either Window XP or Office 2003 you need to be aware of a very important date that’s fast approaching, it’s the end-of-life (EOL) for Microsoft Windows XP and Office 2003. Microsoft announced that it would terminate all support and updates for Windows XP, Office 2003 and Server 2003 on April 8, 2014.

The April 8th deadline is significant because, firms that rely on these services assume a huge risk. No more software updates or patches including security updates, out-of-band emergency updates and all product support for the software.

If your firm runs Windows XP or Office 2003, you can’t afford to wait. The April 8th deadline is coming fast so better start planning your migration now.

Are you ready for Office 2013?

elearning-2013

We’ve just completed our Office 2013 eLearning!

New design. New topics. Now playable on desktops and mobile devices.

For our Office 2013 eLearning lessons we simplified the design so that learners can focus on the content. We’ve also dramatically increased the size of the application screen to make it easier to follow what’s happening on the screen.

Color-coded overlays are used in conjunction with recorded narrative to provide instruction, as well as allow users to test their skills. The overall effect is simple, elegant and engaging. We think you are going to love it.

Prepare for your Office 2013 roll-out by clicking on the banner and scheduling a demo!

Guerrilla Tactics for Attorney Training  Presentation MP3 MP3

Description:    
Successful operations in guerrilla warfare include the elements of surprise, intelligence and mobility (sometimes, even terror). The same tactics must be used when building a successful attorney training program that provides real solutions to the common impediments to attorney attendance. Let’s explore the challenges of creating such a program, how to convey the value of training and increase retention, and strategies and tactics that will assist in designing a well-conceived program that catches attorneys by surprise.

Postcards from the Edge: Early Adopters Share the Good (and Bad) of Office 2013 and Windows 8  Presentation MP3 MP3

Description:    
Early adopters of Office 2007 played the technology equivalent of “Where’s Waldo?,” as they clicked through Ribbon tabs in search of their favorite commands. With Office 2013, Microsoft has continued to refine (and improve upon!) the Office Fluent user interface. There are also a handful of new features — particularly around collaboration — that seem very enticing. So what’s holding us back? Why not flip the switch? The answer: third-party tools. They tie into our favorite apps — and not like the document management system. Office 365 and SaaS may be a model to seriously consider. We’ll show you how to map out a plan for evaluating whether your firm is a good candidate to be an early adopter and whether you should consider moving to Office 365. We’ll also share what we’ve learned from those who have jumped on the Office 2013 bandwagon and provide attendees with a definitive checklist that lets you easily and quickly measure your readiness to join the early adopters of Office 2013.
