"Before DocTidy we were taking hours to produce professionally formatted documents to the standard we demand. Now with DocTidy it is a matter of minutes."
David Freeth, Finance Director, Ridgian Group

Through their commitment to delivering business centric solutions coupled with a sensible use of technology, they have experienced steady growth since they started business in 1998.
They provide development based services through the entire project lifecycle from Project Management, Business Analysis through to Implementation and Support. A Certified Partner with Microsoft since 2000, they are justly proud to have been awarded the accolade of Specialist Business Intelligence Partner.
Like all successful companies, Ridgian understand the importance of brand recognition in a competitive market. They take a great deal of care in ensuring their own brand image is consistently represented in all their customer facing material.
All of the documents and reports produced for their customers have the unique Ridgian style, based on their corporately branded Word Template. Ensuring that each document was produced to this template involved a lengthy exercise of review and manual fixing.
Ridgian, like all forward thinking companies decided to challenge the status quo of the manual review process and set out to find an automated solution that would fit their business needs.
Ridgian decided that DocTidy from Kutchka was the ideal solution, as it offered the ability to automatically resolve formatting inconsistencies and apply the Ridgian template to their documents at the same time.
Configuring the software to use Ridgian's Word styles was very straightforward. Ridgian provided Kutchka with an existing document that had already been written using their corporate style. From this Kutchka were able to deduce the key formatting characteristics and develop a DocTidy template that matched the Ridgian brand.
DocTidy provided Ridgian with considerable time savings in their document creation. To run DocTidy against even their larger documents takes only a matter of minutes.
"Two to three hours on a document was common. Now with DocTidy it is only 10 to 15 minutes", says David.
A document that has been through the DocTidy process usually only needs a final visual review. Any style amendments corrections are rare.
"In our document reviews we can now focus more clearly on the content because we are confident that DocTidy will ensure our documents look the way we want them", comments David.
DocTidy is Kutchka's latest offering for the Microsoft Word community. It will take a document and convert it to a consistently formatted style. The style could be from DocTidy's preinstalled library of styles or one specifically configured to a corporate brand. The software runs on Microsoft Office 2000 or later. It requires Microsoft Windows 2000 or later.
