So Many Slides: An Indezine Conversation with Robert Befus

indezine-logoMicrosoft PowerPoint MVP Geetesh Bajaj recently interviewed SlideSource.com’s Bob Befus. Their conversation was posted earlier today on Indezine, Geetesh’s highly regarded presentation-focused website.

The interview (which can be read in its entirety here) covered a number of topics including the challenges of organizing large collections of slides and how slides change as they travel through an organization.

Here are a couple highlights:

… when building presentations, we found that 60% start from an existing set of slides to create a new presentation, so managing versions of presentations is an important part of their work. This is especially true for the 30% of users who work in PowerPoint frequently. The problem is that 76% of all the PowerPoint users who responded said they have trouble locating the slides and presentations they need when they need them.

While managing files and versions seems like it should be a simple task, when it comes to PowerPoint, it turns out it really isn’t simple at all. That’s because PowerPoint presentations are mutable mobiles, meaning that, unlike a PDF file for example, PowerPoint files change as they travel through an organization.
