Two Additions: The new SlideRocket home page and me!

By Tracy Frey on December 18, 2008

We’ve got a couple new additions to the SlideRocket family we are excited to announce!  First off, the shiny new home page.  If you’ve logged into SlideRocket in the past few days (which I hope all of you have!), you may have noticed this bright new holiday treat.  If you haven’t logged in in a bit, you should do that now.  Don’t worry, I’ll wait…

Great.  So, what can you do on this new home page, you ask?  Well, since it is SlideRocket’s goal to make your life easier in every way, that is just what we’ve done here.  You’ll see that you land on an “All” tab.  This is essentially a quick snapshot of everything that is happening in your SlideRocket account.  Here you will find presentations that have been recently modified, presentations that have been recently viewed, new presentations that have been shared with you, and announcements from SlideRocket.  Too much information at once?  No problem.  You can click on the “Announcements” tab to find out what is new at SlideRocket Mission Control, hit up the “Shared Items” to find out what has been shared with you, or if your permissions have changed on a presentation, and you can also check out the right rail to quickly and easily find presentations that you’ve modified and checked out.  Pretty cool, eh?  We’ve gotten a lot of feedback that as you have started to work with groups and people within your organizations that you wanted a fast way to see all the SlideRocket changes, and we hope the new home page does just that.  As always, we relish your feedback, so please leave it in the comments, or post a feature request in our UserVoice forum.

And the second addition to SlideRocket is me, actually, and I wanted to introduce myself properly.  I’m Tracy, and I’ve recently joined the SlideRocket Crew to lend a hand to our community efforts, as well as do some product marketing work.  What that means to you is that I really really want to hear from you.  All of you.  Really.  (OK, maybe not all at once…).  You’ll be hearing from me on this blog, on Twitter, and on our FriendFeed, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and Flickr accounts, and the more I hear from you the better SlideRocket can be.  And I’d love your help getting the word out about SlideRocket – hopefully together we can stop the world from having to deal with Death by PowerPoint!  So please, let me know what you love, what you don’t love, what you want, and what you need.  You can reach me in all the places I just talked about, and you can email me at tracyf at sliderocket dot com.  I look forward to getting to know all of you.

Send SlideRocket To The Crunchies

By Nat Robinson on December 3, 2008

TechCrunch is ramping-up to the 2008 Crunchies and it’s time to think about what happened in technology this year. While the Crunchies are an awards ceremony the process of getting to the awards is actually about customer and peer recognition.

This year has been great for SlideRocket. We raised money to build a company, won some awards, ran successful private and public beta programs, signed up thousands of users who’ve had great SlideRocket experiences, launched SlideRocket to the public, launched the SlideRocket Marketplace and established ourselves in the Software-as-a-Service, Rich Internet Application, productivity software landscape. More importantly we sincerely we hope we’ve done enough to earn your nomination in one of the following categories. We’re entering the 3 categories that make the most sense for us:

- Best Design – Recognition for best user-interface design

- Best Enterprise – For a company focused on enterprise or business-to-business applications and services

- Best New Startup of 2008 – Product must have launched in 2008.

Click the link if you would like to nominate SlideRocket for a Crunchie. We thank you for your consideration and your nomination. We hope to see you on the winners podium so we can thank you properly :-D

The SlideRocket Team.
