  1. I just want to send a shout out to our Tech department. When j needed to convert a document all it took was a call/tech request to Jess and I saved about 2-3 hours of re-typing- which I greatly appreciated . I love some of these new tricks and can't wait to try them. Thanks for making us more efficient. DeeAnn
