Simplifying The Process.

Greg Sfarzo, creator of the Sfarzo-Matic Overlay...  

"I wanted to make my life a little more exciting and productive in order to meet my daily objectives. I wanted to simplify the process. "

In a unique customization for streamlining office work, this software can program your keyboard with shortcuts to applications, files and even text. A dramatic time-saver and adaptable to individual users in the workplace, including workers with special needs.

"I tend to use the same programs, files and Web sites on a daily basis," says Greg, "and found that I could save myself a lot of repetitive steps and time with some simple programming.

"Now, I can easily script a command to launch a program and open a document in a single keystroke. For instance, if a customer calls and wants information on our training capabilities, with one keystroke I can launch Word, open our training document, and even send it to the printer to print. Or I can script specific text that I use over and over, such as my name and address, into a single keystroke. I can even program a key to launch my Web browser and go to a favorite Web site. Right now I have five Web sites programmed to five keys, but if I want to replace one, it's easy to reprogram a key and just print a new overlay for my keyboard."
