Amherst, MA (PRWEB) August 31, 2006
StyleEase Software (http://www.styleease.com) now offers school-specific, custom formatting templates for college students and professors. In 15 years of business, StyleEase has established itself as a leading academic software provider and now takes the lead in teaming up with college faculty to create custom-made software for students.
“When a large university approached us about creating a custom version of StyleEase, we were thrilled,” said vice-president Mark Lange. “StyleEase is all about making students’ lives easier, and now professors too can rest assured that students papers, theses and dissertations will be properly formatted.”
To create a school-specific template, the programmers at StyleEase will work closely with school faculty to customize StyleEase for that school’s unique requirements. Papers, term papers, theses and dissertations can all be made to order with unique title pages, headings, page number placement, and modified styles. StyleEase continues to offer complimentary evaluation copies to college faculty.
“When you’ve got a paper due and time is short, the last things you want to have to worry about are arcane formatting requirements,” said president Gary Hillerson. StyleEase works with Microsoft Word to automate all elements of academic papers, from title page to references. All academic disciplines require that students’ work be submitted in specific formats—APA (American Psychological Association), MLA (Modern Language Association), and Chicago/Turabian styles being the most common. StyleEase offers different templates for all three of these popular academic formats.
This California-based business started in 1990, when Hillerson and Lange were working on Masters degrees in counseling psychology. At that time Hillerson created a Microsoft Word template called FormatEase. “There was just nothing out there to help students with all the minute details of paper formatting,” said Hillerson. FormatEase evolved into StyleEase, and StyleEase is now stocked in campus bookstores nationwide. The company website draws over 30,000 visitors a month.
StyleEase is available for immediate download and on CD at http://www.styleease.com. StyleEase is distributed by Academic Wholesale, and also sells at Amazon.com.
