Your single source of truth for all slides, company-wide
Want to eliminate time wasted searching for slides, images, or charts to re-purpose? Need a way for everyone to find up-to-date brand compliant content? Meet the empower® Library: a scalable, enterprise-class slide management solution. The empower® Library delivers a single source of truth for everything PowerPoint-related. And powerful formatting automations right in the PowerPoint ribbon make it easy for anyone to format external content to your brand guidelines.
Your PowerPoint Asset Library
Centrally manage all your organization’s presentation assets within PowerPoint itself using the empower® Add-in. Instantly distribute up-to-date content across your entire organization. Control access via Active Directory. Available to everyone within PowerPoint for Windows, Mac, and Online – and even via Microsoft Teams and SharePoint integrations.
Never Again Use Outdated Slides
empower® for PowerPoint flexibly distributes ready-to-use presentations, templates, slides and more. People automatically receive update notifications when they open outdated content. Inserting assets from the Library is as simple as drag-and-drop.
Manage Multiple Languages
Multinational companies can provide slides and other content in multiple languages. empower® for PowerPoint enables people to switch easily between language versions.
The empower® Library integrates seamlessly with PowerPoint. It provides direct access to all PowerPoint assets: slides, slide sets, presentations, master templates, images, icons, charts, tables, text elements, SmartArt graphics, and videos. With just a few clicks, users can add content to and from the Library directly within PowerPoint.
empower® includes a Google-like Search that covers all content including notes, metadata, and linked Excel tables and charts. A machine learning algorithm ensures that the best search results appear up top, based on an analysis of the prominence, frequency, and position of the search term as well as the last modified date of the slide.
empower® notifies users when they open a Library asset that has been updated since it was last used. It automatically detects if any changes have been made in a presentation that need updating. empower® allows you to update slides in multiple presentations in a single operation.
empower® connects to Active Directory, Azure AD, and OKTA. Within empower®, you can assign rights to folders for individual users or entire groups. Four roles are available on the folder level: Reader, Author, Editor, and Administrator. An additional role, Corporate Design Admin, can manage all central settings such as corporate design rules.
empower® synchronizes either the entire Library or selected folders from the central database to everyone’s computer. People can quickly create and edit presentations and documents wherever they are – even when they’re on a plane or working somewhere with limited or no online connection. empower® always runs fast and smooth thanks to its cached offline functionality.
empower® allows you to manage slides and presentations in multiple languages. With the Slide Linking feature, whenever you update a slide in one language, all translated versions of that slide are also marked as changed. A localization agency or colleagues can then easily see which slides require translation updates.
You can protect individual slides and presentations so that they can’t be edited by unauthorized users. Approved, official content stays consistent; it can be used, but not modified, except by authorized users.
Create presentations 30 % faster
Time is precious, so why spend it on formatting instead of focusing on better content? Our study has shown that PowerPoint users spend 37 % of their time on formatting slides. With the empower® PowerPoint add-in, you create presentations up to 30% faster.

Total brand compliance
Your brand is an important asset, but our research shows that only 30 % of all MS Office documents comply with corporate design guidelines. Your brand and corporate design compliance is built-in to the empower® Ribbon. Users don’t have to guess about which fonts, colors, or layouts to use. In addition, empower® can transform old presentations and documents into the latest corporate design with just a few clicks.
Template & Asset Libraries
Choose from hundreds of predesigned and corporate-approved MS Office templates. The empower® Library can house easily-accessed branded images, charts, clauses, and boilerplates (world map, organigram, value chain, etc.).
The empower® Design Check examines the template, fonts, colors, titles, numberings, margins and logo spacing to make sure everything conforms to your corporate design. In addition, Design Check auto-corrects any inconsistencies it finds in templates or production documents.
Convert from Old to New
Easily adapt Word documents and PowerPoint presentations to a new template. Reformat external content to be on-brand with just a couple of clicks.
The empower® Design Check tool analyzes a presentation against your corporate design guidelines embedded in empower®. Design Check examines the template, colors, fonts, font sizes, bullet styles, logo protection area, and much more. You can auto-correct all issues with one-click, or each of them manually. In addition, empower® supports multi-brand configurations so you can add as many brand guidelines as needed.
With the empower® PowerPoint add-in, you can easily upgrade any presentation to your current house style. Whether the presentation is in 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio, empower® applies all layouts intelligently and removes unwanted old layouts from the slide master.

With empower® for PowerPoint, you can add watermarks, draft stamps, and footnotes as needed. The Logo Switcher allows you to pick from a list of approved logos. And the Anonymous Mode temporarily hides all logos in the presentation, allowing you to work on confidential projects when you’re in a coffee shop or sitting next to someone on a plane.
empower® provides extensive Libraries with all templates, slide masters, images, icons, text elements, chart and table assets. It’s easy to build brand compliant slide decks from pre-approved building blocks.
