Fully Integrated Authoring with Blue Curve Create
A Familiar, Powerful and Efficient Authoring Environment
An Authoring Tool You Already Know
Works the Way You Do Today
With Blue Curve Create there's no need to learn something new. We use Microsoft Word (and PowerPoint), just like you do today.
Create a new document, edit existing documents and save them to Blue Curve whether you're on-line or off-line.
Blue Curve ensures you have the latest template, the latest data and the most functional editing tool so you can concentrate on writing the content.
Seamles integration with Microsoft Office
Extensive Functionality for Content Editing
Blue Curve's functions are all available from an integrated toolbar in Microsoft Word or PowerPoint.
Use Blue Curve's data integration tools to ensure your standard data tables and charts are up to date and consistent with the Insight database. You can modify the component settings at any time and even insert additional standard data tables and charts as you write. They're all connected to the Blue Curve database, and can be quickly refreshed as data changes during the editing cycle. Never publish incorrect data ever again.
But you don't need to use the Blue Curve database for tables and charts. Just use the Productivity Tools to create adhoc charts and tables from your own data. Blue Curve will ensure they're in the correct style, taking care of fonts, colors and layout.
Use the Blue Curve formatting tools for corporate styles, color schemes, page layouts, side comments and landscape pages. In fact, Blue Curve Create helps you get your document to a professional finished state with minimal effort, leaving you more time to focus on the content.
And, of course, you can still use the full extent of the functionality available in Microsoft Office, all of which makes Blue Curve Create an incredibly powerful research editing environment.
Professional Research Documents Every Time
Produce Great Work
Blue Curve Create ensures that every piece of research you produce looks professional and is effective in getting your message across to your client. Every document looks like part of the same family, has consistent data and projects your corporate brand perfectly.
As well as producing individual documents, Create also includes functionality to quickly build and publish those more complex composite reports. When several authors are working on those Morning Notes, Industry Reports, Market Reports and Estimate Books, things can quickly get out of control. With Blue Curve Create, each author can work on their sections and the final report brought together at the last minute, quite often automatically.
And, thanks to Blue Curve, each document ties in with emails, websites and third-party systems. Professional image is everything.
Centralised Template Management
Take Control of Your Templates
Of course, producing professional looking templates is nothing new. But it's the way they're managed in Blue Curve that changes everything. No more bloated document files; No more update headaches; and No more version control problems.
Blue Curve documents are built dynamically from template and data definitions held centrally - every time you create a document. That means the template is always the latest one, the layouts are always correct and the data is always up to date.
Not only that, but Blue Curve templates use Blue Curve Components, a unique method of breaking down document content into standard elements. Components are shared across documents, which makes them much more efficient and simpler to manage. Update the layout or content of a standard table and it changes in every template that uses that table - automatically and straight away.
Easily build new templates, add new document types and change template designs - without programming or expensive consulting.
