Leverage your company’s slide library in Epoch Slide™ presentation management system.

Businesses of all sizes are leveraging specialized technology to attain a competitive edge today. Let’s look at how Epoch Slide™ Presentation Management solves a real and serious problem for training and consulting firms that have accumulated thousands of PowerPoint spreads across hundreds of presentation decks. Every instructor or consultant relies on PowerPoint slides to train their clients in communication.

Training and management consulting firms catering to large corporations use PowerPoint slides for effective communication while delivering their message. A small consulting firm of 15 employees can have 3,000 slides requiring a specialized tool to manage those presentation slides and keep them up to date. You can use Epoch Slide™ Presentation Management System to build your courseware faster than in PowerPoint. Simply search the Epoch slide™ intelligent library by keyword to find choice slides for the course lesson you are creating. You can reuse and assemble training modules to compose a custom courseware faster than the current methods available in PowerPoint.

SharePoint, FTP, Drive, DropBox, and email are poor tools for managing thousands of slides because they are not designed to be a presentation management system. Imagine having to update 50 new slides created in 2017 across 100 or 200 presentation decks with a library of 3,000 to 6,000 slides. You would copy the required individual or groups of slides, open the target file and paste in each presentation deck. You would then need to repeat the same procedure hundreds of times, possibly opening more than 100 presentation decks, deleting old slides and pasting new slides in the correct order multiple times. Instead of pasting all 50 slides at once in a deck, you must selectively update each deck. This manual process is an extremely laborious and time-consuming task that can easily take a week or more to complete. Even after updating the slides is complete, the inadequate distribution of the slide library throughout the organization and the ability to quickly create custom courseware remains.

Now, imagine that Epoch Slide™ Presentation Management System with an intelligent slide library has automated this process, saving you 80% of the required time. By uploading and replacing the original instance of the updated slide, all instances of this slide instantly get updated across multiple decks and become available to users. Furthermore, the process of creating a custom presentation for each opportunity is improved significantly by creating better PowerPoint decks faster. Using your firm’s slide library, you create a custom presentation in hours, not days or even weeks. This is realized because you have access to the entire slide library of approved and final content. You can search the slide library by keyword to find choice slides, assemble the slides in the desired order, save your work and download the presentation to deliver your courseware communication from a laptop. You can also choose to present your training materials using Epoch Presentation™ iPad App.

Here are twelve ways a presentation management system can increase productivity for your organization:

  1. Centralized PowerPoint slides are made available to users worldwide
  2. Update a slide instantly across multiple decks
  3. Eliminate courseware administrative headaches
  4. Intelligent Slide Library has a powerful keyword search
  5. Build better presentations extremely fast
  6. Users won’t need to create slides from scratch
  7. Use a desktop, laptop or iPad app to create a custom presentation
  8. Share your presentation link with your prospects and clients for free
  9. Protect your brand by locking slides
  10. Embed videos and animation to improve messaging
  11. Reuse favorite slides to create custom presentations faster
  12. Clone modules and assemble them to create courseware faster than other current methods

Presentation management systems increase your courseware composition productivity exponentially. Epoch Slide workflow process provides the tools to build custom courseware in record time and is unmatched by any other system or process available in PowerPoint. Epoch Slide™ Presentation Management System is simply a must-have “killer tool” for training and consulting firms looking for courseware management.

PowerPoint Slide LibraryCompanies of all sizes have amassed thousands of slides over the years. The bad news is that these slides are scattered across outdated SharePoint, FTPs, network drives, and shared file systems. None of these systems are designed for presentation management, and none of them have an intelligent slide library.

Due to decentralized storage, users have difficulty finding the right slides to build their presentations quickly. Rather than concentrating on building effective presentations, they are searching in multiple locations and asking colleagues for the latest company-approved slides. Even worse, there are duplicate slides in existence that cannot be located easily, so users create yet more sets of duplicate slides. This is very common throughout many organizations that do not yet have Presentation Management System in place.

Let’s say you have decided to centralize your PowerPoint Slide Library and start evaluating Presentation Management System for your company. Here are some tips to help you organize your PowerPoint Slide Library for your business teams. The Presentation Management System is either available as managed hosting software as a service (SaaS) or an enterprise license installed on your intranet network web server. Regardless of the platform you choose, you will need to upload your entire slide library into Presentation Management System. The PowerPoint Slide Library is the core of the Epoch Slide™ Presentation Management System.

You can build your online slide library folder by folder while uploading multiple presentations. This can be time-consuming if you have thousands of slides and hundreds of folders to upload and organize into a centralized slide library system. In most cases, the slide library is not organized locally, and the administrator tries to upload and organize as they learn to use Presentation Management System. Given the manual interaction of upload, the task completion time increases while you build your library in real time.

There is a better way: mapping your slide library locally on your computer.  As the slide administrator, plan and build your PowerPoint Slide Library on your desktop with all the folders and subfolders organized for users by topic, subject, etc. Configure the Epoch Slide Autoloader with the account credentials, and select the top folder. Click “Upload” and watch the magic as your entire slide library is automatically replicated in Epoch Slide™ Presentation Management System. Since you are not uploading manually, you can work faster to build your slide library and save weeks of work. The Autoloader will automatically create all folders and subfolders as well as upload presentations accordingly to replicate your slide library online.

Once your presentations are in the slide library, you can optimize presentation meta properties and add keyword tags to slides. Presentation meta tags and slide keywords are searchable, so users can find choice slides for their masterpiece. Epoch Slide™ Presentation Management System has many advanced features for its intelligent Slide Library. These advanced features let the administrator optimize the slide library by creating pre-built presentation for users very quickly. In addition to per-built presentations, you tag slides with keywords that help users search and find the right slides quickly.

Using a slide library, your business executive teams can build better presentations faster than they are now.  Training consultants use Epoch Slide™ to build custom courseware faster because PowerPoint do not have these specialized advanced slide management tools.
