Microsoft Word

Outside of one other Microsoft tool, namely Outlook, few pieces of software get used more regularly on the job than Microsoft Word. People use it to write all manner of business documents, from short memos to lengthy RFPs and business reports. Microsoft has even created a cloud computing (aka software as a service, or SaaS) version of its flagship Office suite called Microsoft Office Live, so people can work with Word and other Office components using a web browser.

I dwell on Microsoft Word not just in trade magazine articles but also in my TechnoZen blog. Why? As a  technical writer and trainer, I both know the formatting shortcuts Word offers and see how inefficiently most people use Word, so I offer tips in my blog. (I’m accumulating said tips into a book on designing business documents using Microsoft Word – the easy way.)
