Summary

A 25-year veteran computer consultant, Kendall Callas has been profiled in InfoWorld and WordPerfect Magazine. He is past president of the San Francisco PC Users Group and frequently authors computer and law office automation articles in WordPerfect Magazine, PC Novice, and the ALA Bridge.

Mr. Callas specializes in WordPerfect support for California law firms, providing:
- training
- consulting
- macro and merge programming
- template construction
- document assembly systems

He is the author of the quarterly newsletter WordPerfect in the Law Office.

Explaining why consultants can be more effective than employees, Mr. Callas says:
"As a consultant, one has a special status; unburdened by the mountain of paper and the daily workload that dampen the enthusiasm of employees, I can surmount inertia to get a job done quickly and efficiently. Coming from the outside, it's easier to cut through office politics to institute change and to objectively identify and correct productivity problems."

Drawing on his business degree from the University of California, Berkeley, Mr. Callas comments:
"I think of the office as a document factory and WordPerfect as a tool on the assembly line. My work is an investment in improving production capabilities -- macros make the tool sharper, user training boosts the skill and morale of the workers."
