Microsoft Office 2010 upgrade trainingMicrosoft Office 2010 upgrade training – workshops and floorwalking

Many companies upgraded from Office 2000, Office XP or Office 2003 to Microsoft Office 2010. The majority of these organisations will expect their staff to unravel the mysteries of the new versions for themselves. Microsoft Office 2010, however, looks very different from earlier versions. Instead of a Menu bar, Standard toolbar and Formatting toolbar, Office 2010 has a ‘ribbon’ structure and tabs.

It takes time for people to find their way around the system and to find out what exciting new features there are which were not available in previous versions.

However, investment in Microsoft Office 2010 upgrade training and possibly floorwalking, could quickly take away the apprehension of staff and make them more productive very rapidly. Most people will use Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook; a two-hour workshop would bring people up-to-date with the Microsoft Office new features, such as the Ribbon, the Quick Access Toolbar, Galleries and the Mini Toolbar; it could also cover the major new changes in Word and Outlook.

Workshops combined with floorwalking enable personnel to ask questions specific to them and iron out any problems they may be facing with finding how to do things in Office 2010 that they previously did with older versions.

Depending on the size of the organisation, some companies may convert everyone to Office 2010 at once; others may move staff over at a more gradual pace. Microsoft Office 2010 upgrade training, workshops and floorwalking could be done over a few days in one week, or a day or two per week spread over several change. Staff then become productive in the new software rapidly, and embrace the change rather than resenting it.

Our charge per day for Office 2010 workshops and floorwalking is $1295 + GST.

Any workshops can be tailored to the needs of your organisation. These shown below are just for guidance.

We also provide Microsoft Office 2010 upgrade training Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Hobart, etc, provided the expenses of our Sydney trainer are paid.
