Real SMB IT: For Heavens Sake, Use Templates!
August 10, 2009
Too often in the small business space we tend to re-invent the wheel. Again, again, and again, then again for good measure.
Case in point, my spouse also works for an SME, she was working on a document that three or four people had contributed to.
The document had to be cleaned and formatted to a consistent look and feel as each contributor had done their part in the way they saw fit. One used text and bullets , one used embedded tables etc.
It was a nightmare.
We worked on that G-D thing until after 1 AM

Whatever software you are using, take the time to develop styles and templates. It makes filling in the blanks so much easier. Time and time again.
