"Jan overhauled our company's dysfunctional filing system. Her considerable knowledge of
information and contact management software was very helpful."
Eli Krupnik, President, Innovative Training Resources, New York, NY
If you manage accounts, people, projects, or just your own time, technology can save you hours and hours each week. Whether your
company is making new technology
purchases - or making the most of what you've already got - Jasper Productivity Solutions can help.
At JPS we've been online since 1987 - back when everything ran on DOS and dinosaurs roamed the earth. A few years later, people
were excited about the release of Windows 3.0. Email had barely been invented and the Web did not yet exist (yes, there was an
internet, but there's a difference). That's how long we at Jasper Productivity Solutions have been using computers. And we've
run a less-paper office almost as long.
Technology offers speed, efficiency and the flexibility to work remotely - but you've got to use the right products, know how to use them, and have
them working together. Ideally your email, calendar, task list, and contact database should be integrated. You don't want 'dueling databases' forcing you to look
in Outlook, your smartphone, an Excel spreadsheet, plus a paper notebook to locate a phone number. You don't have time to look at 5 different lists to
prioritize your day. Your employees don't have time to hunt for documents in a convoluted file system. And you'll always have some paper - but where's the 'dividing line'?
Perhaps the most widely-used technology is Microsoft Outlook.
People mostly use
it for email and maybe the calendar - but Microsoft Outlook is also a comprehensive scheduling, task, contact,
and information management program. Used properly, Outlook
allows people to manage their workload, quickly locate information, reduce paper clutter, and ensure timely follow-ups so
nothing 'falls through the cracks.'

Due to Outlook's complexity, the trick is knowing which features you really need and how to use them - and how to do things
in one click instead of three!
That's where we come in. Jasper Productivity Solutions offers Microsoft Outlook customization and coaching. We'll configure
Outlook in a way that suits
you. We also design custom Outlook forms that will fit you like a glove.
JPS can help your company in the following areas:
Microsoft Outlook customization & configuration
Outlook coaching in person or by telephone
File system design - digital, paper, or a combination
Efficient email management tactics
Smartphone syncing using powerful third-party programs
The less-paper office
Setting up employees to work remotely
Smart use of technology offers enormous advantages in working efficiently. But it's not about having the latest gadget with all the bells and
whistles - you're often better off waiting until the developers get the bugs worked out. What's important is the 'fit' between technology and the user. Done
right, it will make your work easier and faster in ways you'd never dreamed possible. You'll have less stress and be poised to take advantage
of opportunities you'd otherwise miss.
Feedback from an Outlook Customization Client:
MFY Legal Services
was looking for an expert to customize Outlook, our tech
support firm recommended Jasper Productivity Solutions. MFY needed several fields
added to Outlook's forms for day-to-day data management and also to produce our
quarterly reports. We sat down with Jan Jasper and explained exactly what we were
looking for. Jan worked closely with us to make sure the forms she created would
address all of our needs. We found her to be meticulous, technically knowledgeable,
and great to work with.
The result - Outlook finally captures and displays information in a way that makes
sense for the work MFY does! This will reduce our dependence on hard copy records,
which will save us a lot of time - a precious commodity for our very busy staff."
