EndNote will always put a corporate author's name in full, as the program treats company names like surnames. To change the way the author's name is displayed in text, you will need to use Edit and Manage citations in the EndNote Toolbar in Word.

Change the formatting from "Default" to "Exclude Author" and then write the author abbreviation in the Prefix box, including any punctuation you will need before the year (i.e. the comma and space).

You will need to do this for every citation for which you need to use an abbreviation for the author's name.
