With so many different online products and services available for potential use in practice, I generally don’t investigate them until I have a need. Make that a pressing need. I have been known to sign up for and learn to use a service just a couple of hours before I need it, which can wreak havoc if the platform isn’t user friendly.
A while back, I decided to submit a proposal for a policy paper. I don’t write many these days because they’re time intensive, but this opportunity was too interesting to pass up. But with a deadline approaching, I wanted to come up with something that would look impressive and could be formatted quickly and I was concerned that I hadn’t given my assistant enough lead time. So I decided to give Quote Robot – one of the programs I vetted for 21st Century Retainer Agreement a try. I’d already given the proposal a good deal of thought so I was certain that I could write it quickly but I wasn’t certain that I’d have time to make it look nice. Here’s a mock-up of the result – it took me about 10-15 minutes to create the version that I used for my project.
What do you think? Is it something that would be useful for you?
