In this post, we'll explain how to create a business Word template and why it makes sense to use template software to simplify this process.
But first, what exactly is a document template? A document template serves as the starting point for creating any new document.
A common example of a Word template is the "letter template", which eliminates the need to manually enter your address, company logo, letterhead, etc. every time.
A common challenge in companies is that every employee, every department and even every location uses different Word templates.
These must be managed efficiently and conform to a consistent design, as typically dictated by the communications department's CI/CD guidelines.
According to a study 8 out of 10 companies in Germany use Microsoft Office as office software. Similar values can be assumed in Switzerland. Due to this widespread use, it is very likely that you are one of these companies and are interested in Microsoft templates to increase your productivity.
Are you also one of these companies? Then we strongly recommend that you read the following sections carefully.

Automating repetitive tasks and processes is a powerful tool for increasing productivity. In Microsoft Word, text blocks can be created with boilerplate text to automate repetitive processes, such as inserting frequently used text passages. These text blocks can save time and ensure documents are consistent and error-free.
In addition, template software in Microsoft Word can be used to automate the processing of data and the generation of documents based on predefined parameters. This allows users to focus on more creative and substantive tasks while routine tasks are completed automatically.
Collaboration and integration
Smooth collaboration between different teams and departments within a company is crucial. If we take Microsoft Teams as an example, this platform supports creating documents directly and collaborating with colleagues in real time. Using Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams in the cloud allows employees to create, share and work on documents simultaneously, regardless of their location, further facilitating collaboration.
The primedocs template software enables the direct use of Word from the Teams application, which means that document creation in a corporate design, e.g. for a letter, can be started directly in the application.
Training and skills development
One of the key components of productivity is employee capability. Businesses should spend money on education and training to make sure staff members are proficient with Microsoft products. Getting trained in best practices and advanced features will help you work more efficiently and finish projects faster.

The primedocs template software also offers dynamic elements, which lead to a significant reduction in the number of templates required. For example, if you maintain several locations, a template is no longer necessary for each location, but the information is automatically adjusted by the user profile with the stored location data. Not only does this give your IT department an improved overview of all templates, but there is also a significant reduction in the number of templates to manage.
