WHAT WE DO

OFFICE DOCUMENT SOLUTIONS

We specialise in designing easy-to-use and fully functional Microsoft Office templates and custom program add-ins.

MICROSOFT OFFICE TRAINING

To ensure brand consistency for your business, train staff to effectively create documents in-house.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

We aim to provide results-driven design solutions by truly understanding your business.

WEB & DIGITAL DESIGN

An impressive online presence is essential for your business’ credibility and growth.

Microsoft Office templates

The design world can often forget the importance of functional templates. A document with a graphic plonked in and no customisation is not enough to be useful in our everyday working lives.

Our Microsoft Office templates always include customised paragraph and table styles, your colour theme and optimised graphics. We also recommend utilising macros which provide the opportunity to automate multi-step processes.

Our team have hundreds of years’ combined experience in the Microsoft Office suite and that means a lot! You won’t scare us and we’ve probably seen it before. We offer a finely-tuned logic to the setup of our templates and a wealth of knowledge relating to user issues and program capabilities.

Our expertise covers:

  • Word templates, document formatting and user training
  • PowerPoint templates and animated presentations
  • Excel template creation and advanced formulas
  • Publisher designs
  • Visio formatting
  • Access databases

Microsoft Word is a program used by around 1.2 billion people. For businesses looking for a complete workflow solution, we recommend our custom Microsoft Word and PowerPoint ribbons which automate daily processes. Saving time and money!

A ribbon (or toolbar) designed for your business can give you a single access point to all of your favourite Word functions as well as some of our very own programmed features:

  • Insert landscape page (or other sizes and dimensions) – our most popular automation, preventing hours of stress with a single click
  • Insert pre-formatted tables / format existing tables
  • Multiple front cover options for reports
  • Insert section divider pages or appendices sections
  • Easily insert pre-saved content
  • Inserting custom watermarks

Distance does not limit our services! We currently provide templates and training to clients worldwide, specifically Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, USA, UK, Africa and Asia.

We promise to make your life easier!

Every day, clients tell us how much they love our work.

We know the problems you’re facing with MS Office and we already know what you need!

Tell your boss how much money we can save your business and you’ll be the employee of the century!

Better still, get in before the end of financial year and 100% of the cost will claimable this year! Tell the accountant, they know what this means ?

Using our recommendations we conservatively estimate each user to save at least 138 hours per year ($13,800 averaged to various pay grades). Multiply this figure by your employee number and it’s easy to see how much time and money your business can save annually. 

We see well-paid consultants wasting time formatting documents instead of content writing. Some charging $300+ per hour for their time, losing days on simple tasks.

 

MICROSOFT OFFICE TRAINING

CUSTOMISED ON-SITE TRAINING

Everyone is using Microsoft Office, but how many have had formal training?

kboodl helps busy professionals and their teams discover what they “didn’t know they didn’t know” about Microsoft Office with customised training tailored to the needs of your staff and business.

A two hour session can work wonders for staff confidence and overall productivity. We can customise the in-house training session particular to your systems and users’ skill levels. A printed training reference or video tutorial are also recommended for future employee inductions or to be used as a refresher.

We can also offer full day training at your office for any of the standard Microsoft Office courses; beginners, intermediate or advanced.

On-site training is a cost effective way to train your staff. We offer either computer-based or conference style sessions. For training sessions of 4 hours or over, we will supply your morning or afternoon tea at no extra cost!

Web & Digital Design

We specialise in affordable website design services. For smaller businesses we recommend the use of WordPress websites. With many themes to choose from, they can be customised to suit your branding and are easily editable to ensure you have the freedom to update information whenever you like. Larger businesses may want a more customised solution and/or include e-commerce.

Hutchies ♥ kboodl

Hutchies loves working with kboodl to develop complex templates into easy-to-use resources for our 1,400 staff. kboodl aren’t just developers, they’re also designers, which means they whole-heartedly care about your project’s objective – not just the technical stuff (which are each equally as important to a great outcome).

Through a significant brand refresh over the past 24 months, Hutchinson Builders have invested significant energy to a range of modernised collateral and templates that unifies our iconic brand across everything including the thousands of templates and forms our teams use day-to-day on projects.

To achieve a strong buy-in and enable change amongst teams, our objective was to ensure these templates are easy to access and more importantly easy to use by our 1,400 staff across the business.

Being a graphic designer myself, my first nature is to use Adobe InDesign for everything – I’ve never been able to fully ‘buy-in’ to the Microsoft offering in Word. That was of course until I came across kboodl who have not only helped me better understand the inner workings and intricacies of Word but have blown my mind in Word’s ability to deliver sophisticated, easy to use and just
down right clever templates from our designs. I’m now completely sold on Word and have more recently been using it more than I would normally InDesign (something my designer friends can’t believe).

kboodl are an absolute pleasure to work with and really enjoy problem-solving our template complexities, which in return not only deliver efficiency in using the tools, but our people actually enjoy using them and have really embraced a fresh look.

We have had the pleasure of working with kboodl on numerous projects. Simple templates such as our stationery (letterheads etc), right through to jam-packed submission templates that assist teams with EOIs and Tenders to win new projects.

Furthermore, kboodl have delivered projects for our Health, Safety, Environment & Quality (HSEQ) teams, as well as our Training & Workforce Development for their comprehensive learning resource materials.<

I have absolutely no hesitation recommending kboodl to everyone I think could use their help – even my designer friends who refuse to embrace Word (I understand). kboodl have really filled a gap in the market that people just never actually dealt with. We all just put up with the painfulness and ‘limitations’ of Word and instead of trying to understand it, just complained about it and put up with dodgy self-made templates. kboodl have the winning formula to actually make you want to use it.

Can’t wait to kick off our next project with kboodl and continue to deliver these amazing templates to our people that make their day-to-day work that little bit easier.
