empower® express is a license model consisting of the empower® software and a complete design and support service by a leading Microsoft Office design agency. empower® express has almost the same functional scope as empower®, only the central corporate design settings cannot be changed by the users. Such changes are a part of our service and are made by the empower® team.
From a technical point of view empower® express is a multi-client capable cloud system (hosted in the Microsoft Azure Cloud). We manage the IT operation and you can start with empower® Express without the involvement of your IT. An installation of the empower® client software is possible on PC’s without admin rights.
With empower® Express there is a quick setup procedure: If your master template is set up correctly from the technical perspective, we can directly integrate it (with slight corrections, if necessary) directly into the empower® system. Alternatively, we replace technically non-optimal PowerPoint master templates with a standard PowerPoint master during the initial setup, incorporate your corporate design guidelines (fonts, sizes and color design) and use this master template for the empower® system.
Compared to the dedicated empower® systems, empower® Express contract can be terminated monthly. You can get the full empower® experience at a low risk.
If you choose our empower® Slides option your Corporate Design (master template, color scheme and permitted fonts and sizes) are integrated in empower® by our team and can be changed on request.
If you choose our empower® Library option, you are provided with a folder for you to save your content to. There are no additional costs to set up either option.
You can equip with empower® Express as many users as you like.
Please contact us directly. We will be happy to advise you on your options, guide you through the commercial or technical process and support you during the initial setup.
Yes, empower® is compatible with all common Add-Ins such as think-cell.
You can upload as many presentations, slides and other elements in the "Company Library" area as you like.
No, you do not necessarily need your own corporate design. You can also simply work with the empower® standard templates (master template, slide templates, standard definitions for colors & font).
From 10 users on, a change to a dedicated empower® environment is also possible. Please note that this requires a one-time initial setup and a separate empower® contract (minimum contract period is 1 year).
The annual empower® license fees are based on the number of empower® users. For the migration of your existing data (masters, slides and presentations) from your existing empower® express slide library a one-time migration fee of 500 € will be charged.
As the number of licenses increases, you pay a lower base price. E.g the calculation for empower Slides & Charts
