One of the unique aspects of many WorkExcel.com products is the
ability to edit or brand material so it works seamlessly. Many of our products
are offered in several media formats from PowerPoint to Web Courses, from Flash to Self-play CDs. We know that many of you are
experts in your fields, with preferences for specific topics, content,
and correct nomenclature, etc. Not all companies are
the same and work cultures differ, too. So, modifications must be made
to training materials, and this feature must be part of the product you
purchase. This was an important niche decision for us. We give you this control over most products, either at your
end after purchase or prior to purchase, by helping you with
customization, adding your logo, taking our name and logo off the product, etc.
