SlideRocket Reinvents Presentations with Interactive, On-Demand Capabilities
New presentation platform delivers unprecedented business impact by engaging customers, prospects and partners anytime, anywhere
San Francisco, CA - October 5, 2010 — SlideRocket today unveiled a new platform that changes presentations for good, enabling businesses to engage and collaborate with their audiences in real-time or on-demand. The offering turns presentations into interactive sales and marketing tools 24/7, resulting in increased sales and smarter business decisions. Industry-first capabilities include collaborative comments, feedback forms and polls, enhanced analytics and a comprehensive presentation dashboard.
Presentations are second only to email as the most commonly used business communication tool, yet most are static, one-way documents that lack impact. SlideRocket elevates presentation performance by providing unprecedented interaction and collaboration between presenter and audience, regardless of time or location. Now, colleagues, customers and prospects have the opportunity to provide immediate feedback on what they see in a presentation via virtual sticky notes and surveys embedded in the slides. Feedback and responses are immediately delivered to the presenter and the analytics provide deep insights for marketing, branding and sales. New features include:
- Instant Response Forms & Polls – Transform presentations into sales and marketing weapons by easily adding feedback forms and custom surveys that create instant focus groups. Now, presentations are powerful tools that accelerate business by generating leads, qualifying customers and closing deals.
- Collaborative Comments – Create compelling, interactive conversations with colleagues, prospects, customers and partners by allowing viewers to provide comments anywhere in the slide deck through virtual sticky notes. Comments are delivered to the presentation author in real time and consolidated in one place.
- Enhanced Analytics – Get the real time insight and understanding to close deals and improve how you sell. Measure audience engagement, determine message effectiveness and track results. Information on presentation engagement and feedback from comments and surveys are delivered as actionable data, in real-time.
- Presentation Dashboard – Manage the performance of all presentations from a comprehensive control center. Set sharing preferences and collaboration settings, keep track of the presentation history and closely monitor analytics.
“There is nothing like this for lead generation. Normally you have to buy your leads,” said Scott Nicholson, national sales manager for First Cal Mortgage. “SlideRocket allows me to go directly to the consumer and get immediate feedback. It opens a whole new set of doors to communicate with my customers by bringing them into the conversation immediately, making our presentations all about interaction and results.”
“The feedback forms and surveys are fantastic – they turn our presentations into instant focus groups. We’re able to engage, interact and gain customer insights right away,” said Peter Wood, recruitment and marketing coordinator at Fidelis Partners. “We also love the way our customers can provide comments directly in the presentation making our communications interactive and 24/7, much more effective than simple email or even phone conversations.”
“Every day, businesses of all sizes struggle to convey big ideas through presentations. With the new SlideRocket service, they can bring these ideas to life and communicate them with impact. The interactive forms and polls, comment capabilities and analytics send archaic static presentations the way of the horse and buggy,” said Chuck Dietrich, CEO of SlideRocket. “SlideRocket creates a new way for businesses to interact and drive success with their partners, prospects, customers and co-workers.”
SlideRocket reinvents presentations by bringing big ideas to life, engaging audiences and driving business. The platform promotes influential story telling through interactive capabilities like audio, rich media and instant feedback that elevate meetings, regardless of time or location. In addition, the measurement analytics provide dynamic sales tools and unmatched customer insight.
