SlideSource is now live and available to the public

SScom_logo-506-wide-on-whiteWe are very excited to announce that after several years of development, refinement and real-world use, SlideSource.com has completed its public beta testing program and is ready to help you organize, manage and collaborate on slides and presentations securely via the Web.

SlideSource.com already has received great reviews. Rick Altman, host of the Presentation Summit, said:

In 18 years as a presentations consultant, I have seen more than my share of flawed collaboration tools and awkwardly designed organization schemes. That’s why SlideSource.com is such a breath of fresh air, with its smartly designed tools for storage, archiving, collaboration and version control. It’s seamless, effortless and elegant — three qualities that are rarely seen together. It’s hard to imagine a client of mine who wouldn’t benefit from it.

Robert Befus, our vice president of operations, recently outlined some situations that potential SlidesSource.com users may recognize:

Collaborating on PowerPoint presentations is a significant challenge for companies that lack tools to manage the process. When systems make it hard to track and manage existing presentations, individuals run the embarrassing risk of using the wrong version of a slide during an important presentation.

Especially when you’re working in teams, slide development represents a significant cost. Yet the heaviest users report that they often can’t find slides and information they need to reuse and end up recreating slides as a result. That’s an enormous amount of waste and inefficiency that SlideSource.com can put an end to.

We invite you to visit the following online resources to find out more or get started with a free account and really put SlideSource.com through its paces.

Countdown to Launch Day 1: No connection, no problem

countdown-day-1-506pxOne of the best things about SlidesSource.com is the way it allows you to keep all of you slides in a central location that is available from anywhere. But what if you’re between somewheres and won’t have access to the internet?

No problem. Just create a presentation in SlideSource.com containing the slides you want to work on and download it to your computer. When you’re finished editing and are back to civilization, simply upload the slides back into your Slide Library.

SlideSource.com will recognize these as edits to slides already in your library and will prompt you to make the new slides a new version of those existing slides. All previous versions of the slides are saved and always available. You will also be given an opportunity to make the revised slide a new, separate slide in the library, which will create a brand new version history and a new set of slide properties.

Online or offline, SlideSource.com keeps you completely in control of all your slides and presentations.

SlideSource.com is launching on January 13th! It’s a powerful, slide and presentation library that is intuitive and easy to use. Never lose a slide or version again. With SlideSource.com you and your team will have all of your slides and presentations in a single secure place that’s accessible anywhere at any time.

Countdown to Launch Day 2: Slide search that saves you time

countdown-day-506pxWith SlideSource.com, you now have access to ALL the slides your organization has ever created, all in one place. Years of work culminating in hundreds of slides and presentations.

But how do you find the exact slide you need? Before SlideSource, you may have scoured every slide deck from the last five years, moving from PowerPoint file to PowerPoint file, from one computer to another, checking the network drives and the attachments on email after email.  And if this slow, manual searching didn’t turn up the slide you were looking for, well, you probably wasted time recreating it even though you know it already exists… somewhere.

But with SlideSource, you can search across your entire slide library by slide title, slide content, tags, and author, finding the perfect slide in seconds.

Countdown to Launch Day 3: It’s a beautiful slide! Take credit for it.

And, when it is time to roll your beauties out, you can find exactly what you need, when you need it. Search your Library by slide owner, by the actual content of your slides or by the tags you have attached to them. You’ve worked hard on your slides. Now make every one of them count, with SlideSource.com

Countdown to Launch Day 4: What is the lifespan of a slide?

countdown-day-4-506pxA worker wasp only lives for about 22 days. Your slides probably live longer. Over the course of its life, a slide may be changed many times. In fact, the final version may not look anything like the original. Do you know where your slides have been? What changes have been made? And by who?

SlideSource.com automatically tracks every single version of every single slide you upload. Slides are no longer hidden in “slide decks” somewhere on your laptop or network. You know who, what and when changes were made to every slide. And, you can build presentations from any version of your slides. For example, you may always want the most current version of a slide in one presentation, but you want another presentation to be locked with a previous version. If you have included the same slide in 4 different presentations and you change the slide, it will automatically be updated in every presentation it is in… if you want it to. You are in complete control of your slides and presentations. Put your slides to work for more than 22 days. Manage the complete life cycle of your slides with SlideSource.com.
