empower® for charts in PowerPoint streamlines creating and formatting charts, including Gantt and waterfall charts. A waterfall chart visualizes drivers for growth or reasons for cost savings as steps. Gantt charts help with project planning and reporting, showing activities and milestones on a timeline. As a PowerPoint add-in, empower® integrates seamlessly with how you work.
Define your timeline – whether it’s for a quick project or a multi-year roadmap.
Then add Rows, Tasks, Milestones, Datelines, Highlights, Delays, and Status Icons.
Waterfalls visualize the steps that cause an increase or a reduction in something. You can let Waterfall Charts grow from left to right, or right to left. Both vertical and horizontal Waterfall Charts are also supported.
Show multiple data series either as Stacked Columns and Bars or as Clustered Columns and Bars. Decide whether to show Sum Labels, Connector Lines, and Percentages, then format the Chart and add Arrows if you like.
Use a Line Graph to show the evolution of data series over time. Define the scale and date format on your x-axis. Smooth and format your Lines and decide if you want to interpolate gaps.
Combine Column or Bar and Line Graphs. And in case of different scaling you can use two value axes to combine differently scaled data series into one chart.
Visualize the shares or pieces that add up to 100%.
Easily show Absolute Numbers, Percentages and Labels in your chart.
Show 100% Charts either as columns or bars or create a 100% Area Chart to show how relationships evolve over time.
Plot points with two dimensions into a Scatter Chart or add a third dimension by using a Bubble Chart.
empower® addresses some important PowerPoint limitations. Have you ever tried to point out key information in your chart, such as the absolute growth or a compound annual growth rate (CAGR)? What about inserting breaks to optically shorten breakaways? empower® for charts in PowerPoint makes those sorts of tasks simple. And you can flexibly link charts to Excel files.
Use one of the predefined numeric formats or define your own custom number format. You can also scale number formats. Number Formats remain stable even when the presentation is opened on a PC with different regional number settings.
Link your charts to Excel files on a local or a network drive, or even in SharePoint or Teams. When using local or network drives, you can link Excel files using Relative Paths.
The data entry window gives you access to tools that quickly reverse or sort the order of series or categories, or rotate (transpose) your chart data. It’s available whenever you edit data for any empower® Chart.
When you have multiple charts on a single slide, make the data comparable by unifying the height and value axis scales for all charts.
Quickly define where you want to show a chart legend. Or use an empower® Chart function to show the data series labels right next to your data.
empower® makes your PowerPoint charts look good, and it ensures they comply with your corporate design. During an initial configuration consulting phase, we adapt all chart types to your Corporate Design. People can adjust formatting, but only within approved guidelines. That guarantees your charts always display consistent branding.

It simultaneously controls and expands color options by showing only approved colors and enabling more colors than a native PowerPoint theme. That flexibility comes in handy, for example in charts with many data series.
