Since 2001 Sharepoint is the all-rounder for companies. The collaboration application can be used as a social network, intranet portal and content management system. Particularly useful is the slide library function. This is integrated as a feature in SharePoint. With PowerPoint you have the possibility to save individual slides, as well as building blocks, which can not be stored in the slide master or in the slide layout. This makes sense especially when a high number of recurring slides prevails.
The ingenious advantage of the slide library is that slides are kept up-to-date at all times. Any change to a slide can be saved globally, so the slide is always up-to-date and accessible to anyone. Since Office 2013, SharePoint slides library is no longer supported. How can companies now combine newer versions of Office with a slide library? Especially third-party providers offer sharepoint alternatives. empower® slides is one of those sharepoint alternatives.
The PowerPoint add-in integrates with Microsoft Office via its own ribbon. empower® slides not only offers a central slide library, but also templates, tools for quickly creating and formatting Office documents, as well as functions for checking the corporate design.
Collaboration is also possible using the tool. empower® slides offers the checkout and label function with which presentations can be edited together within the slide library. Collaboration can be organized directly in empower® slides and overlaps in editing by other users can be avoided.
