Content creation means more than the creation of multimedia content for the web or social media. In a corporate business context, content creation refers to creating documents of any kind, such as presentations, offers, or reports.
The bigger the company, the more content employees create every day. But did you know that your employees spend about 2.5 hours a week formatting documents?
Our empower® Content Creation Solution can help!
Content creation in companies
Excel and PowerPoint are among the biggest time guzzlers in office work and certainly among the biggest frustration factors for many employees. It’s not uncommon for employees to put in overtime because formatting documents ate a large part of their workday, so they could not finish other tasks. However, these productivity applications are needed for many important documents. Excel is used to prepare reports, track all kinds of figures, and document developments. PowerPoint is used to present reports, prepare sales presentations, and create product and training documents.
Efficient content creation is essential for your company
Employees are the most important resource of every company because their work is what keeps businesses alive. However, formatting tasks in Excel and PowerPoint waste your employees’ time. Even if your employees are experts in formatting, many minor formatting tasks add up. That’s a lot of time your employees could spend on more meaningful and important tasks – like focusing on the actual content of the presentation, which tends to fall short due to time-consuming formatting.
Eliminating this time waster frees up your employees with less frustration, and delivers the benefits of increased productivity and the added value your employees create.
Content creation for corporate decisions
Another important point is reporting. Many important business decisions are made based on reports and the facts they contain. And how are facts predominantly presented in companies? Most effectively in the form of a PowerPoint report.
To make data-based decisions, these documents must be correct, precise, and understandable. This is especially true for diagrams. When manually transferring and preparing figures, even the most skilled employees can make mistakes that can have immense consequences, despite the fact that they were not intended. Not to mention the time it takes to transfer and format data manually!
