Publish Interactive Mobile Presentations with Digital Publishing Suite.
New DPS Export for Office PowerPoint now available.
Since its launch almost 25 years ago, millions and millions of Office PowerPoint presentations have been created annually by business professionals, government officials, educators, and students. Whether you believe the rumor that 30 million presentations are built daily or not, let’s face it, there are a lot of PowerPoint presentations out there. They are a staple of business communications, government negotiations and increasingly, classroom education.
The majority of PowerPoint presentations are delivered from desktop computers. But, in an increasingly mobile world, presenting from a mobile device is now a priority. This is especially true for enterprise sales teams on the go.
With the latest release of Digital Publishing Suite , you can now transform your PowerPoint presentations into interactive mobile content consumed in a DPS app on Apple, Android and Windows mobile devices. Using the new DPS Export for PowerPoint you can quickly and easily convert existing presentations to .folio files. Sales staff, marketing teams and other business people who don’t have access to InDesign or HTML authoring tools can now use this simple plug-in to turn existing PowerPoint presentations into dynamic, engaging mobile storytelling experiences.
The DPS Export for PowerPoint installs directly in the PowerPoint toolbar (Office 2010 and 2013) and allows users to preview folios converted from PPT on the desktop before publishing. Once ready, you can then go through the process of publishing your PPT deck as a dynamic .folio that maintains the static, interactive and animated content originally built in PowerPoint.
The DPS Export to PowerPoint workflow is one more tool within DPS that marketing and sales teams can use to publish mobile content, without relying on design or developer resources. In addition to existing DPS integration with leading CMS systems including Adobe Experience Manager, WordPress and Drupal, this new PowerPoint plug-in enables business stakeholders to efficiently create and update content in DPS apps using templates and tools with which they are already familiar. Enabling your marketing and sales departments to support mobile apps is important as best practices indicate that keeping mobile content current and fresh is a reflection on your brand and a tool for driving increased customer engagement and loyalty.
Because DPS is hooked up to powerful metrics, you can track and measure the performance of a PPT presentation when converted to a .folio. Marketing teams can know if their sales colleagues are using critical mobile sales presentations published to a DPS app, including which slides (which become articles in a .folio) are shown and how much time is spent on each. This then indicates to the Marketing team if published content is effective and being used in the Field. Lastly, because DPS integrates with Salesforce1 Platform, you can further track content metrics associated with a sales opportunity as well as build powerful dashboards that correlate sales performance with mobile content.
The DPS Export for PowerPoint is a simple tool that can help DPS Enterprise customers create and publish interactive presentations to mobile apps. Access the plug in here and check it out soon.
