For most of us, creating presentations is a necessary and unavoidable part of everyday life. Whether you’re an employee or a student, presentations can be an effective way to share information and communicate your brand. However, presentations are not always quick or easy to produce and, after many hours of effort, you may not be pleased with the result. This can often be due to the lack of an effective data preparation service that can take your presentations to the very next level. A lot of presentations that heavily feature data can end up being rather tedious, which is why you need to have a self-service data prep solution that’ll change the way you present your work.
Microsoft, who account for 95% of the presentation market, claim that there are more than 500 million PowerPoint users worldwide and that 30 million presentations are created every single day. They also estimate that more than $250 million dollars is wasted daily on creating mediocre PowerPoint slides!
The average employee spends a massive 20 hours a month creating presentations. 40% of them admit to only having a very basic knowledge of PowerPoint. And more than 40% of their time is spent fixing formatting issues alone. Despite best intentions, less than 30% of presentations achieve their primary objective and comply with the company’s style guide. It’s at this point in time where one has to consider whether or not a stickon whiteboard would be a far better investment given the majority of employees technological ineptitude.
Smart businesses are now realising that their valuable resources are being squandered on poorly-produced PowerPoint presentations that prove detrimental to their brand. In looking for ways to optimise their time and be more productive, they are eliminating time-consuming tasks like presentation formatting issues, to free themselves up for other important duties.
Nowadays, companies are choosing to hand over their presentations to skilled designers who can complete the work faster and to a much higher standard. As a result, they are getting more time back for what matters to them.
Plus, presenters no longer feel embarrassed by amateur decks that call into question their credibility. Instead, they feel like a hero as they confidently deliver an engaging and professional presentation.
