Helps to bring order to the chaos

Helps to solve issues we had beforehand. Helps to save working time (if everybody contributes which remains a challenge). Makes working with PowerPoint more efficient.

PROS

The authoring tool make PowerPoint much more comprehensive. The central library with it's functions is really the key benefit and enables us to maintain a single source our truth regarding our different slide decks.

CONS

An administrative central user management console would be helpful. Performance has already significantly improved but there is still ground to gain. Some more features in the library with regards to history and a changelog would be nice.

Vendor Response

Thank you for your feedback. We are very pleased that you are satisfied with our solution and that you experience the advantages of the central library. Should you have any questions about administration please do not hesitate to contact our customer support - they will be happy to help! https://www.empowersuite.com/en/knowledge/support

empower for brand and library management

PROS

There are several features that are critical for use in my company. The ease of searching for slides or documents where you need them most is first and foremost. The layout of bringing productivity tools and an easier agenda tool to the front make it a must have for slide creation.

CONS

We would love additional reporting so we can better our own library of material and see what our users are using most. This would help us train better if the content is there and they aren't finding it or focusing on content that is used most.

Reason for choosing empower

We needed to ensure we weren't losing any functionality in our switch from Templafy.

Reasons for switching to empower

At the time Templafy was more template oriented and the ability to search slides and presentations at the same time was not possible. empower had stronger search ability.

Vendor Response

Thanks for the great review. We will be happy to take up the idea of better reporting. Feel free to contact us if you need any support in the form of training.

Getting there

An essential tool for organisations that have many slides to manage, but it's still very buggy!

PROS

Slide library management, easy updates with side by side comparison wizard.

CONS

buggy, even after the latest update, I need to restart computer once per day and slow to upload and see new content in library.

Vendor Response

Thanks for your review, it helps us get better every day. Great to hear empower® supports you in your daily work. For any technical issues, please contact our support team. We are always happy to help.

Empower powers thro presentation.

Good to have the reduced timeline to meet the management expection for delivering the presentation on projects, reporting, tracking.

PROS

Editing of font & its color and matching with presentation template should be auto detected and applied to working pptx files.

Management has constraint over budget so opted for low cost solution
