Dear HS Direct, Adrian has been absolutely amazing in the support he gave us. Things were a bit tough with some requirements from one of our valued Clients, but Adrian understood what we needed, he really went the extra mile by even working on our documents and answering our questions when he was out of office. I am not saying that people should help the Client when they are off, what I am saying is, with such an attitude, your business will only grow. I am still amazed, and still grateful for that phone call that he offered to make with our Client, without us asking him, but only to make sure that we comply with all the requirements of our contractor so we can get that project. His explanations at every step where we needed guidance just simply grew our confidence in the way we are doing the things now, with Health and Safety. Please be proud of Adrian! Such a professional AND amazing people-oriented person is one of the secrets of your success, I am aware that you are aware! Thank you, HS Direct! AND Thank you so much, Adrian!!!

I don't have Microsoft Office or Microsoft Word, what should I do?

If you don't have Microsoft Office, or Microsoft Word installed on your PC or Mac, don't worry - you can still use our products. You can get a free alternative from Open Office.

Open Office Org is open-source developed alternative to Microsoft Office, developed by a large software company called Oracle. Open Source means the company who build the software, allow 100% use of it, 100% free.

Since Open Office is specifically developed to be exactly the same as Microsoft Office, with all the same programs in the suite (Eg: Word, Excel, Access and Power Point) - it will freely open any Microsoft Office file-format. Meaning, just because a document was written in Microsoft Word, doesn't mean it can't be opened in another program. Open Office will do that, and vise versa.

To download and install Open Office;

  1. Go to www.openoffice.org.
  2. On the left hand side, click 'I want to download Open Office'. In the green box, click the main link which starts with 'Start downloading OpenOffice.org...'
    • Windows Only:When the program has downloaded, click Install and wait for the program to install.
    • MAC OSX Only:When the program has downloaded, a notification box will pop up with an arrow from the Open Office Icon to the Applications Folder in Finder, drag the icon to the Applications folder to install the program.
  3. You are now ready to use Open Office, and the documents you have purchased from us.
