Your single source of truth for all Microsoft Office templates, documents and assets

Tired of hunting for the latest templates, images, icons and charts? Meet the empower® library: a scalable, convenient, enterprise-class asset management solution. Manage, collaborate, and keep content up-to-date all from within MS Office. No new apps to learn. No steep learning curve. Inserting content from the library is as simple as “drag and drop”.

Asset_Library

Your template and asset management system for Microsoft Office

Make all important content available to everyone in your company’s empower® library. empower® integrates seamlessly with all the most-used Office productivity applications. People can build their house style-compliant documents, spreadsheets, presentations starting fresh every time, more easily than cannibalizing old, probably out-of-date documents.

Slide_Updates

Enterprise email signature management

empower® ensures that everyone uses the correct email signature, formatted correctly and consistently. When legal or contact data or brand guidelines change, all email signatures get updated automatically.

Signature Management
Translations

Organize and distribute thousands of templates and documents

Global organizations have to build, update, and manage thousands of templates and standard document models for multiple business entities in various locations and in different languages. empower® enables admins to easily provision and control all those variations with very little effort. And updating the entire Library when legal information changes, only takes a few seconds.

company signature management

The empower® library is integrated with Microsoft Office and provides direct access to all assets including slides, presentations, documents, spreadsheets, templates, images, icons, charts, tables, clauses, SmartArt graphics, and videos. With just a few clicks, users can add content from the library directly within MS Office.

empower® includes a Google-like Search that covers all library 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 each asset’s popularity.

empower® notifies users when they open a library asset that has been updated since it was last used. When library content has been updated, empower® allows you to update slides in multiple presentations in a single operation. empower® ensures that all legal information in your document or email will always be up-to-date.

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 at 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 document assets in multiple languages. With the Slide Linking feature, whenever you update a presentation in one language, all translated versions of updated slides are also marked as changed. A localization agency or colleagues can then easily identify which slides require translation updates.

With empower, you can protect individual slides and presentation so that they cannot be edited. Just like in Word or Excel. This way, you can ensure that centrally provided content can be used, but not modified by anyone in the organization.

For each presentation, the user can conveniently set a level and add watermarks, draft stamps, and footnotes as needed. The empower® Logo Switcher allows you to pick from a list of logos. And the Anonymous Mode hides all logos in the presentation allowing you to  work on confidential projects on the road.

Easily convert any outdated presentation to your new template. Regardless of whether the old presentation used a 4:3 slide size and the new master uses 16:9, empower applies all new layouts intelligently and removes unwanted old layouts in the slide master.

The Font and Color Pickers provide only corporate design compliant options so users will not have an opportunity to select unsupported fonts and colors when creating presentations with empower®. The Color Pickers can be customized for text, object fill, and line colors and multiple brand designs can be defined.

The empower® Design Check tool analyzes a presentation against the corporate design guidelines. It looks at the template, colors, fonts, font sizes, bullet styles, logo protection area, and much more. The user can then auto-correct all issues with one-click. In addition, empower® supports multi-brand setups so that you can add as many brand guidelines as needed.

empower® offers extensive libraries with all master templates, slide templates, images, icons, text elements, chart and table templates so that you can quickly create brand compliant presentations.
