Thousands of Corporate Slides Are Decentralized

Duplicates Slides Are Scattered with Limited Accessibility

A critical problem has emerged as the corporate PowerPoint slide library has grown over two plus decades. The assets include thousands of slides in hundreds of presentation decks. These thousands of slides are scattered on users’ computers or shared drives across the enterprise. Only the large corporations have SharePoint slide library, which is very inefficient when compared to today’s Presentation Management System. To make things worse, SharePoint is no longer supporting slide library as they move to Office 365.

Those corporations that do not have SharePoint store their slides in FTP, Shared Network Drive, DropBox, or GDrive, all of which are inefficient when compared to Presentation Management System’s Slide Library (or Libraries). Presentation System provides many functionaries for users to quickly search and find choice slides based on keywords and searchable content.

Corporations not using a Presentation Management System face the following painful inefficiencies:

The Problems

  • Slides are created by team members and are not centralized
  • Even if slides are centralized and stored in FTP, SharePoint, DropBox, or Google Drive, none of these platforms provide an effective access method since they lack the following:
    • Keyword search
    • Metadata search
    • Notes search
    • Slide content search
  • There is no presentation composer or builder for creating presentations.
    • No slide selection or assembly
    • No favorites
    • No presentation preview
    • No presentation share
    • No slide with video playback preview
  • Slide updates manually across multiple decks are very time consuming
  • Version control is not in place, no there is no slide update history
  • Branding is diluted due to there being no master control
  • User possesses outdated slides
  • Duplicate slides are created across the enterprise
  • Slides are created by team members and not shared easily
  • Inefficient access to slides
  • Too slow to respond to new opportunities
  • Creating custom presentations with PowerPoint alone is time-consuming

Companies of all sizes rely on PowerPoint presentations for corporate teams such as the following:

  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Directors
  • Training
  • Speaker Support
  • Scientific Liaison
  • Corporate Communication
  • Other executives who create two or more presentations per month.

Here, I will discuss the advantages of Presentation Management System with an intelligent slide library, a presentation composer, and all the benefits.

The Solution | Presentation Management

Intelligent Slide Library with a Powerful Presentation Composer

The solution is Presentation Management System with a smart slide library and a presentation composer for quickly assembling custom presentations. The slide library is the brains behind Presentation Management System. The presentation manager or Administrator builds the company’s slide library by creating folders and subfolders and then uploading full or starter presentations and slides for on-demand access by presentation composers and presenters.

The presentation administrators have many tools at their disposal to upload presentations and slides in the appropriately organized hierarchical library folder tree.

By searching a slide library, selecting choice slides, and assembling them for your opportunity, you can build better presentations faster than using your current method.

Advanced Slide Library

Once you have some or many of your presentations and slides uploaded, you may want to create custom presentations for your marketing, sales, and training teams. You create custom presentations for your teams using the advanced slide association feature. You can “associate” a shortcut instance of a slide in many presentation decks simply by using drag & drop.

A Boost in Productivity When Updating Slides

Slide updates comprise a very time-consuming part of the business process. I am told by our consulting and training client that he needed to update three slides in multiple decks. Using the traditional method in PowerPoint it would have taken him 40 minutes, but with Epoch Slide, it took only 5 minutes. That’s an 800% ROI by gaining productivity and saving time to do other tasks. Now, let’s increase our example to 30 slides, which is reasonable for mid-size and large enterprises. You must spend practically a day using “search & find” and updating the scattered decks. With Epoch Slide, you can accomplish the same task in less than an hour.

Build Better Presentations with Composer

You get access to a very friendly UI & UX experience in which you can create better presentations faster than using your current method. You can react quickly to every opportunity faster than your competitor. You can search, locate, select, and drag & drop choice slides in “Presentation Composer” window. There, you can reorder the slides as needed, add intro and ending slides, save custom presentations, and download a PPT or PPTX file to your laptop for delivery of your presentation.

Intuitive & Easy to Use

You can tag your frequently used slides as favorites and build your own mini library for reuse so they are easily available in your Favorite Folder for selection. Favorite slides help you build better presentations faster. Next time, you can create a new presentation using favorites and other slides.

You can rate slides from 1 to 5 to show how well you like each slide. An average is computed several times a day to reflect the rating for each popular slide.

Last but not least, you can open an existing presentation, customize it for new opportunities, and save it as a custom presentation. Download it onto your laptop or present directly from your Epoch Slide iPad App.

Epoch Presentation Composer™ for the CEO

They say PowerPoint makes it easy to build bad presentations with too many bullets and content, crowding the limited slide space.

CEOs have even less time than other employees to deliver a great presentation every time. So, how do they do it?

We know that there is a great team behind every CEO that brings their skills to the table. The company’s expertise is displayed on multiple slides; however, these PowerPoint slides are currently stored in antiquated formats such as SharePoint, FTP, online drive, and others. These are not designed for managing a PowerPoint slide library and have no presentation builder or composer capabilities. Therefore, it is difficult to find the right slides quickly.

Epoch Slide™ is an easy-to-use tool for composing better presentations faster. Once your team builds the company’s Slide Library with thousands of slides, you can use the Epoch Presentation Composer™ to search and find “final and approved” slides for immediate use. Develop a standard for managing your PowerPoint slide content, thus preserving your brand while maintaining compliance with version control “snapshots” for auditing.

By separating slide creation from presentation building, the CEO can compose better presentations faster than with PowerPoint alone. For nine years, we have been improving our tools, which are built from the ground up for CEOs and executives to leverage the slide libraries of their companies on-demand.

Use the powerful keyword search for finding and selecting choice slides; composing the introductory, middle, and ending content of your custom presentation; and answering the current opposition in style by creating and delivering superior presentations.

As the CEO, you are probably creating at least one presentation per month to realize the ROI of your presentation management subscription. Investor Pitch, Board Meeting Update, Company Vision Pitch, and Keynote are just a few types of the presentation software that will cross your desk this year.

Use the Epoch Slide™ intelligent slide library to organize and manage your PowerPoint slides and video content. Your administrator can upload and organize full PowerPoint presentations, groups of slides, or individual slides so you can access them quickly.
If you are not using a presentation management system or any other PowerPoint CMS, then you may not have a centralized library with an integrated presentation builder. As you can imagine, there are many benefits of an on-demand centralized slide library that delivers the latest approved content to the entire enterprise. With Epoch Slide™, you can create better presentations faster than with PowerPoint alone.

If you could create a custom presentation for every opportunity that comes along, would that increase the closing rate?

We are confident that it would increase not only your closing rate but your productivity as well. You can create presentations on your desktop, compose while mobile in a limo or at a coffee shop, and access your entire slide library along with the Presentation Composer™ from your iPad app.

The Epoch Presentation™ App for the iPad allow CEOs to work on their presentations while mobile. Synchronize before you leave, and you can work offline with complete access to your local slide library database from your iPad.
You owe it to yourself to test drive Epoch Slide™. Discover how much faster you—and your entire company—can build better presentations.

Presentation Management Speedup Course Building

Presentation Builder for iPad
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 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 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 Library Sofware

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. Our client’s feedback say “we speed up course-building” significantly.

Epoch Slide Presentation Management Solutions

It’s no secret that leveraging technology in every aspect of your business is more critical today than ever before. It is impossible to cover all the technologies used in every department daily. Therefore, in this series, I will cover technologies utilized in marketing and sales to close more business. In the last five to seven years, technology for Presentation Management, digital asset management, and content marketing has developed rapidly.

Let’s look at how Presentation Management solves real, serious problems for medium and large multi-national corporations. Corporations as well as training and management consulting firms have accumulated thousands of PowerPoint spreads across hundreds of presentations decks. They rely on these PowerPoint slides for communication throughout their organizations and with their clients. Every executive in a corporation relies on effective communication using PowerPoint presentations for everything from marketing and sales to annual meetings and more. Training and management consulting firms who cater to those large corporations use PowerPoint slides for effective communication while delivering their message. A small consulting firm of 15 can have 3,000 slides and require a specialized tool to manage those slides and presentations and keep them up to date.

SharePoint, FTPs, and email are poor tools for managing thousands of slides because they are not designed as presentation management systems. Imagine having to update 50 new slides created in 2017 across 100 or 200 presentation decks with a library of 3,000 to 5,000 slides. You would copy the required individual or groups of slides, open the target file, and paste in each presentation deck. Then, you would have to repeat the same procedure hundreds of times, opening each presentation deck, deleting old slides, and pasting the new slides in the correct order. This manual process is extremely laborious and time-consuming. It can easily take a week or more to complete.  Even after the slide update procedure is complete, the adequate distribution throughout the organization for creating a custom presentation remains.

Now, imagine that today’s Presentation Management System, which comes with an intelligent Slide Library, automates this slide update process to save 80% of the required time. Furthermore, the process to create a custom presentation for each opportunity is improved significantly. Using the Slide Library, you now can create a custom presentation in hours as compared to days or even weeks. This is realized because you have access to an entire Slide Library of approved content. CEOs, CFOs, CTOs, and sales executives can search the Slide Library using keywords to find choice slides, assemble presentations in the desired order, and download them to deliver their messages.

Here are twelve ways Presentation Management System can increase productivity for your organization.

  1. PowerPoint slide library is hosted in a centralized location available to users worldwide.
  2. Slide update processes replace original slides instantly across multiple decks.
  3. Eliminate slide update administrative headaches.
  4. The intelligent Slide Library has a powerful search tool that uses keyword tags.
  5. You can create a custom presentation extremely fast.
  6. You don’t have to create slides from scratch.
  7. You can use a desktop, laptop, or iPad app to create a custom presentation.

7 Tips for Preparing Your PowerPoint Slide Decks for an Online Library

Over the past few years, I have interacted with prospects and clients that are exploring online slide library tools like Epoch Slide for presentation management.

One scenario is consistently present in all of the cases I’ve seen—the slides are decentralized and scattered among two or more groups that are responsible for designing, distributing and maintaining the company’s PowerPoint slides.

To begin with, I frequently found that the slide’s decks have accumulated multiple masters over time. The first task on your “slide library prep list” is to clean it up, reducing it to a single master for each PowerPoint slide deck.

The second item on your checklist is to make sure no other font type is used directly on a slide outside of the master style. Some slides we encountered were contaminated with multiple font types placed by way of copying and pasting slides that had different masters. “Title” and “Content” sometimes looked “normal” visually; however, when uploaded to a slide library application such as iClickPoint, the “real” font is revealed during the conversion for database storage. Of course, this translated to online slides showing the incorrect font type in titles and content.

To date, I have not seen a PowerPoint deck with the Document Properties fields completely filled out. Traditionally, these properties were not often used; however, in the online slide library world, the PowerPoint document properties, “Author,” “Title,” “Subject,” “Keywords,” “Category” and “Status” play a key role in searching slides. That’s why this is the third important item on your slide library prep checklist.

Good keywords in your slide content are highly recommended as the fourth item on your list. Updating your Title and Content while you are refreshing your slides is a good boost to getting accurate search results for that perfect slide your team is looking for.

Similar to SEO practice for optimizing meta properties of a web page for Google and others, you need to optimize your slides. PowerPoint Document Properties is limited to the presentation deck level. Online presentation management tools such as iClickPoint provide tagging at the slide level for more granular search results for users. For now, be sure that the slide titles are optimized and possibly include a keyword. You can tag slides after you upload them to your online library account.

The fifth item on your checklist for preparing your slide library is to optimize your slides with the proper graphic format and resolution. Not all slides I come across are optimized by design. Slides having overlapping graphics should have their own boundaries. Grouped graphics with transparency should be properly prepared in Photoshop in PNG file format and not rely on a wizard or tool within PowerPoint. Poor graphic formats will be caught and flagged by most online slide library and presentation management tools.

The sixth item on your checklist deals with user common denominators such as font types. Bullet points are a concern because not all desktop bullets translate properly online, especially if the bullets are based on a font installed on the designer’s local computer. We have come across bullet conversion issues on a slide for a multi-national corporation. It was a font issue, so we simply installed that font on our server to support our client’s requirements on the fly. However, it is a good practice to standardize design and style such that fonts used in your presentations are readily available on your user’s computer, and thus preserving your brand as intended during distribution and download. (I recommend skipping the bullets and having infographics designed in their place. Your slides will look more professional and your message will be heard more clearly than bullets.)

The seventh task can be a little daunting when a user inserts a 4000 x 3500 pixel resolution photograph on a slide or their web homepage. Graphic resolution and size problems continuously come up in slides because of inexperienced users mixing print and screen resolution when inserting images in slides without editing the images first.

Using 300 dpi print resolution images on slides intended for 72 dpi screen presentation and online distribution, unnecessarily increases file size. This becomes measurable when the administrator has to upload hundreds of presentation decks having 200%, 300% or an even larger size than necessary simply due to a lack of optimization. This is why it’s necessary for you to prepare and optimize presentations slide by slide. You will be able to truly utilize the power of an online slide library and reap tremendous benefits. It pays to prepare.

There you have it. I have shared the top seven problems our clients have faced with their slide library preparation and tips to resolve these issues. I present to you a possible road to success when your company decides to embrace Presentation System and empower your teams for more wins.

You may ask, “We have over 3,000 slides, how do we create so many folders and upload these presentations?

With over 25 years of experience in the technology industry, I still get goose bumps when innovation we create does its job. It feels magical to me, so I am very pleased to introduce a tool called “Library Builder.” It automatically replicates or creates all folders and uploads your presentations from your local slide library onto the iClickPoint intelligent slide library system for you.

This alone will save you a week’s worth of tedious manual labor. I hope you can see how beautiful and almost magical this tool can be from the company’s presentation manager’s point of view. What a sigh of relief! Web Epoch can help make your presentation management headaches go away.

Presentation Management for Everyone

Mange Company’s Slide Library

I demonstrated iClickPointTM Presentation Management Solutions to companies spanning pharmaceutical , manufacturing,  management firms, financial institutions, university professors, and non-profit organizations. Each are investigating the benefits of Presentation Management System.

iClickPointTM presentation management system solves several critical issues organizations face today when managing updates and the distribution of slides and presentations. Ask any business manager if email as an is efficient tool for distributing and managing updated slides and presentations, and the answer will be a quick, “No.” As a matter of fact, email, FTP, DropBox, and SharePoint are all very inefficient for presentation management, and each offers no tool for creating a custom presentation on-demand.

You can then ask how long it takes the presentation or marketing manger to update all corporate presentation decks with multiple updated slides. Again the answer will be, “Painfully slow” to update 10s or 100s of presentation decks with updated slides.

Finally, ask if your sales force, medical science liaison (MSL), or scientific affairs teams have all the latest approved slides available on-demand. Most likely the response would be, “I look for the slides when I need, then or ask a colleague or create a new one,” even if one or more already exists.

As you can see with these deficiencies, other issues are plaguing your company’s static slide library scattered through you organization, various network drives, and desktops with duplicate slides, outdated content, inconsistent branding, outdated slide design, no compliance version control, no usage reports, a clogged email server, and no tools for creating custom presentations quickly to address the opportunity at hand.

iClickPPT™ Plugin for PowerPoint provides CEOs, CXOs, VPs, speakers, and sales executives entry to iClickPoint™ & iCLickPad™ Presentation Builder plus an “enterprise level intelligent slide library” for an affordable price point.  “Before iClickPPT™ plugin, this option was not available. Now individuals and small players can enjoy the same benefits that the big teams enjoy with the iClickPoint™ Enterprise,” says mobile and web app developer, Rajiv Prasad. Users get a tremendous back-end administration system that allow for the management of thousands of slides, version control, reports, tagging, templates, masters, short videos and other advanced functions associated with presentations, documents, and media libraries.

A few years back, several companies started asking for the solutions now provided by iClickPoint™ and iClickPad™. Corporations of all sizes, however, are still using email to send slides and presentation decks back and forth, resulting in enormous wasted space with exponential duplicate files and versions and no inherent order or intelligence. iClickPoint™ and iClickPad™ solve the problem elegantly.
