    “Excellent on all accounts. [24 October, 2016] Navworks was great in every possible way. EXAMPLES: He completed the job a full day ahead of schedule. What I needed was some basic WORD aspects done because I am not familiar with the technical aspects of WORD 2016. Many things were out of place on my document. 3/4ths of my document had to be properly spaced and aligned and I needed two paragraphs added that also had to be in the same design as the rest of the document without any changes to the basic design. Navworks did all of this and ahead of schedule. I will be using Navworks again soon and regularly.”
