Open Word Help



Hi , first post for me, hope I'm in the right place ??


There used to be a number of self employed consultants up and down the country who could assist with Brooms letters etc. Are there any similar experts for open Word ? I want to migrate my letter templates from Brooms to Open Word. But despite praying every night, it has not happened !?  I am not complying with the new FCA 'transparency' for consumer renewals and have reached the conclusion that I must pay someone to come in and assist me with the task as I think this will be more cost effective. Does any one know of any person who could assist ? Open Gi do not offer this service anymore.


I have in mind writing the basis of the letter (using Broker network templates etc) and then getting expert help with the formatting, keywords, calcs, 'if' clauses and making the letter live in back office.


Happy to pay a consultant or an expert from another brokerage to get me started, probably need a full day to start with - I am in Epsom.

Hi Alan - hope all is well at Grayside!


There are a few Consultants across the UK and I'm sure most will be able to assist. I've spent some time with a number of brokers recently in a similar position and if it's something I can help you with then happy to have an initial call to understand the details. I'll ping you an email with my contact info.

    • Hi Claire,   We took on INVU back in 2008 and still use it today in its Virtual Cabinet guise. No issues with printing from VC whether that be to network printers or pdf and there are also options to send from VC to email which can be useful.    Overall, we remain very happy with VC so have seen no real advantage to move over to OpenAttach.   One little issue is we never managed to get the automatic indexing / filing of standard OGI/OpenWord letters and emails into VC. We just click a few buttons to file them manually.   Happy to chat through further if you wish - I will be at the Members day this coming Thursday    Darren
    • Hi @Clare Carter   I probably cant advise on day to day use / issues, but may be able to help although not sure of your question   Are you still on Virtual Cabinet (VC) and how are you trying to print on OGI - and what / where from   Also - I'm pretty sure there are minimal issues with transferring to OpenAttach - what are the concerns there?  
    • Just wondering if any of the current members have previously been using Virtual Cabinet, and which originally was Invu provided by Linden House.   It is only relatively recently that Open GI have come up with Open Attach but there is an issue in transferring data.   If anyone is still using Virtual Cabinet which evolved from Invu and Linden House, could they let me know whether they had any issues with Open GI and printing.    Thanks
    • Hi Andrew   I do have a copy - but you can get them / best to get latest copy from the support site - presumably you have a registered account??   Just go to the link here RMAR Reports and Spreadsheet   Any problems come back and let me know!
    • Hi   I am new to OGi and not sure how the system deals with the FCA required Client Money Calculation. A previous post mentioned a OGI PDF document detailing the reports to get the numbers and apparently there is a spreadsheet to input all the numbers as well.   Is anyone able to forward the PDF and spreadsheet or provide assistance please.   Thanks
