    When asked about whether he had enjoyed the Project Planning Discount Bundle, Hassaan answered:

    Are you kidding! They are awesome dude!

    I have not seen such exciting and informative style in a while. Am very glad I found your site.

    Am making most use of what I purchased. If I have more needs I will look in your website first as my source of templates.

  3. Terry

    Terry purchased 3 templates from us, and then went on to request a custom template.

    I really like your templates and they are a great time saver!

  4. Russ

    I bought a few individual documents to start with, and quickly realized that I could make a saving with the discount bundles.

    These templates are really useful especially when you are short on time and have important meetings.

    Really helpful thanks!

  5. Ray

    Thank you again for your templates, they really do help me visualize some very complicated ideas and get buy-in much more quickly.

    You have a great product.

    I use Business-Docs Agile bundle templates, to enable the visualisation of resource assignments and project progress.

    I find these of high value to communicate “one-a-page” progress to busy Executives.

    I give Business-Docs five-stars for product quality and support.

  7. Rachelle

    I’ve bought several of the Discount Bundles, and am enjoying the variety of templates – especially the time savings.  What an impact they’re having when I use them. Great value and a real pleasure. Thanks!
