London, United Kingdom: YOUpresent has teamed up with Censeo Consulting Group to create DeckPro to simplify the presentation creation process and ensure that all presentations are in line with Censeo’s PowerPoint standards and visual brand.
DeckPro is a custom PowerPoint add-in built on the existing SwiftPrez product from YOUpresent and provides Censeo consultants with a suite of tools to streamline the presentation creation process.
DeckPro enables users to access a centrally maintained and synchronized library of branded assets such as icons, charts, slide layouts and illustrations directly from the PowerPoint ribbon, and automatically checks finished presentations for compliance with company style guides.
Content administrators can manage both Censeo and client-branded templates on a server, and push changes to all users’ PCs to ensure firm- wide accessibility of the latest version. Consultants can then easily switch between different templates, and all custom layout designs automatically adjust to the selected template. DeckPro also provides buttons for quick access to a Censeo style guide or email support, as well as a range of proofing workflow tools.
Evan Hodges-LeClaire, an Associate at Censeo Consulting Group and Censeo’s lead for the development, said: “PowerPoint presentations are the primary medium we use to convey information to clients, and our consultants spend a significant portion of their time crafting them. We recognized the potential to streamline and improve this process, and YOUpresent was the perfect partner to help us do so. Thanks to the PowerPoint add-in they developed for us, our consultants can now create better presentations in a fraction of the time it used to take.
“Companies with large numbers of PowerPoint users often struggle to manage templates and asset libraries effectively, and productivity and consistency suffer as a result,” said Jamie Garroch, CEO of YOUpresent. “Many are unaware of the almost limitless customization options that PowerPoint add-ins can provide, but Censeo saw the potential. We are very pleased to have been able to help Censeo streamline and improve the presentation building experience for its employees.”
