Fed up with tedious creation of PowerPoint slides?

Your employees spend countless hours creating presentations and yet the actual content falls short of expectations. Tedious formatting and charting take up most of their time, leaving no time to focus on what is essential: the content.

PowerPoint slide illustration

How am I going to illustrate this slide?​

In presentations, it’s crucial to explain things clearly and visually to increase the viewer’s understanding. This requires both communication skills and deep knowledge of MS PowerPoint. Very few people have both.

Comple business charts

I'm tired of creating complex business charts!​

Users often fail with diagrams in PowerPoint. Many functionalities are either not available or complicated or hidden. Even for PowerPoint professionals, creating charts often means endless formatting work.

Reports are edited often

Are all charts already up-to-date?

Creating and maintaining report presentations is laborious because they contain tons of charts and other objects with links to data in Excel. Which objects are linked to where? Are all required links really set? Do they all still work? When were the links last updated?

Endless formatting

Format, format, format...

Flaws in presentations distract your audience from the core messages and can only be fixed with burdensome, meticulous formatting work. This isn’t always successful, but always leads to time loss and frustration.

Why is that?

Good presentations open doors and sell ideas, products, and services. That's why a lot of time is invested in making them as convincing as possible.
 
But PowerPoint doesn’t offer all the necessary features for this. Complex business slides and charts have to be created manually and formatted painstakingly.
Frustrated man in the office

Are your users frustrated and regularly working overtime?

Isn't it strange that while companies are constantly trying to become more efficient, one of the biggest time wasters is not being addressed at all? Your employees' time is wasted on repetitive construction and polishing of presentations. Even outside of regular working hours, if necessary. Overwork causes stress and frustration.

Statistics on Content Creation

Can you afford to waste potential?

Your employees' time is your company's capital. Instead of using it for convincing arguments, cogent analyses, and interesting stories, they dig through a jungle of PowerPoint features. This not only leads to a tremendous waste of time, but also to presentations that do not unleash their potential.

Maximum efficiency in presentation creation

content-creation_icon

 

With empower® Content Creation, you eliminate all time wasters. Gain 100% concentration on content that convinces people.

Design slides faster with templates

Design convincing slides faster with hundreds of templates

Creating slides is challenging because most users are not designers. The results are often unattractive and unconvincing.

A comprehensive empower® Library of perfect slide suggestions and design elements makes creation process child's play and even inexperienced users create outstanding results.

Create complex business charts faster

Create complex business charts faster

It must be easy and fast for users to create complex business charts with all relevant chart types, arrows and markers at their fingertips.

Quickly create sophisticated, professional charts such as elegant Gantt, waterfall and many others. Add arrows, breaks and other elements for crystal clear messages.

empower® Content Creation gives your users options missing from PowerPoint. They go well beyond PowerPoint’s native limitations to create stunning results.

Automate reports

Automate recurring reports

Recurring reports with lots of data-driven slides should be automated as much as possible so as not to waste time and risk errors copying over data from Excel to PowerPoint.

Automate reports by linking excel data to PowerPoint. This way, users only need to update the underlying Excel file and the entire PowerPoint report will be updated automatically.

empower® Content Creation makes data linking easy, saving a lot of time and eliminating mistakes during copy and paste.

Eliminate formatting in PowerPoint

Eliminate formatting tasks​

Are elements accurately aligned, at the same height and size? Or should they be offset a little further to the right or left? Do you count millimeters when manually positioning shapes and other elements on slides? Never again!

Highly skilled professionals shouldn’t waste their time on such tasks. They need a solution to get detail work done in seconds so they can focus on the real content.

empower® Content Creation layout tools let them do just that: they can arrange, position, resize, stretch, or align slide elements properly with just a few mouse clicks.
