Never Again Use Outdated Slides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 People automatically receive update notifications when they open outdated content.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.

Manage Multiple Languages

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® slides 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.

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.

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.
