The Word proposal template contains a layout for a cover page, inside cover, automatic table of contents, back pages and the main body of the report. A custom ribbon tab provides functions to format a table in the Hitachi Consulting style, add an image and a Hitachi Consulting logo and change the levels in the automatic table of contents. There are also functions to easily insert a landscape section or switch a current section to landscape and paste text copied from other documents without destroying the formatting or layout of the current document.

Letter template

The letter template displays an opening input box where the user can select the recipient’s name from their Outlook address book and enter the references, date, subject and their contact details. The template contains a memory feature that will remember the user's contact details so the next time they write a letter, their details are entered on the form as a default. There is also a /show logos feature so logos can be shown on the letterhead if the letter is to be sent electronically or the logos can be hidden if the letter is to be printed on pre-printed paper.
