about PhraseExpress Jun 2015

I have been using Phrase Express for more than two years and this superb tool has improved my medical practice. I use it for prescription, medical information to patients, form filling, answering my emails and a lot more. It is convenient, very powerful and easy to learn. Floating menus, MS Word conversion and an incredible amount of possibilities hide inside this little jewel. Also the help is always there. The manual is excellent, but if I need some explanation, my emails were always answered within 24 hours.

about PhraseExpress and Dropbox Apr 2013

I have been using this "little" app for a good couple of years now. I have it installed on all the computers I work on. It's recent release made it possible for my phrase file (houses all your shortcuts) to be kept in sync using Dropbox. Even better!

I have also made it a point to introduce several colleagues to this. And they have found it equally useful ever since.
