    - makes sure, that your presentations are consistent and in compliance with the corporate design with the Design Check - Layout Tools allow you to easily and fast create and modify slides (would no longer like to create presentations without this) - save slides, presentations and pictures directly in the Library - sidebar to ease access for Library, Layout Tools & Design Check - starting performance with currently up to 25 seconds - missing personalization options for user, e.g. central or local activation of features, sizes of icons [it is nice to add Layout Tools, but it would be even better to say: "I want to have feature x always displayed big"] creating better presentations in a faster, more accurate and easier way. Thank you for your feedback. We are very pleased that you are satisfied with our solution to maintain your corporate design and that you experience the advantages of the central library. The long startup time that you experience might be due to other infrastructure problems as our startup time is usually only 2-3 seconds longer compared to the usual startup time. However in the latest version 9.0 the startup time has been massively improved. Feel free to reach out to our customer support in order to discuss ways how presentations can be created better and in a faster way. https://www.empowersuite.com/en/knowledge/support

    The central library is really helpful to at least establish a foundation to maintain a well-organized corporate library of PowerPoint slides. The authoring tools add functionality that Microsoft failed to implement for years already (and probably never will). After moving the whole solution into the cloud the administrative effort is really small and the performance is much better. Support is good and regular updates provide more features. A central user administration would be nice (shall be in the product soon). More insight into the history of slides would be nice. It remains a challenge to convince users of the benefits (but this is most probably not a particular problem of empower). The central library enables us to cooperatively improve the stack of PowerPoint slides. Everybody can (theoretically) help. There is now one single source of truth that everybody can utilize. This saves valuable time and is the foundation for the return on investment. 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 slide library and cloud hosting. Should you have any questions or ideas you like to share please do not hesitate to contact our customer support - they will be happy to help! https://www.empowersuite.com/en/knowledge/support

    empower helps me finding slides much faster that have been used in previous presentations. Secondly, I can save a lot of time making presentations brand consistent. And last but not least, I can convert old presentations with a few clicks to adjust them to our latest templates. In previous versions, there was no automatic slide translation available, but that has been added recently. Thus, there are currently no downsides when using empower. However, switching back to PowerPoint without empower has become really painful ;-) empower can be installed as on-premise or SaaS solution. However, they also support installations in the corporate cloud. This makes it much easier to get approvals internally as a lot of sensitive data can be stored inside presentations. Without empower, we wasted a lot of time every week in formatting presentations and documents. Also, finding slides from previous presentations was a big time killer and we often reinvented the wheel because we did not find the old slides.

    As a user, I have been using Empower for about 10 years in various industries. The continuous development has always inspired me. I am absolutely convinced of the tool and can only recommend it.

    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.
