Integration Progress

By Bryan Alexander on October 8, 2013

We are happy to report that the first phase of our integration with ClearSlide is rapidly approaching, bringing with it many exciting changes. We’d like to highlight some of those changes here.

First, many of you may have noticed on our Support Page that we have transitioned to a self-support model for most SlideRocket specific issues. The reason for this is that we have integrated our Support Department with ClearSlide. As such, we are thrilled to announce that we are now able to offer support directly through the ClearSlide application! Simply navigate to the Help/Feedback section of your ClearSlide account to submit a ticket.

Second, as the conversion process for SlideRocket accounts to ClearSlide has accelerated, we are excited to offer limited-time promotional pricing for SlideRocket users. You can see how seamless it will be to connect SlideRocket as a storage account in ClearSlide and transfer your presentations here. To get in contact with a ClearSlide Sales Representative to discuss your conversion options, please fill out our contact form or call 1-877-360-DEMO

Finally, as part of this integration process, the account retirement initiative that started with EDU accounts has been extended to all Lite accounts. Many of you may have seen the in-app and pop-up messaging alerting you that Lite accounts will be retired at the end of the year. The reason for this, again, is ClearSlide’s focus on delivering the highest quality sales engagement platform to sales and marketing teams across the world.

For those of you that join us at ClearSlide, we’re confident you’ll love what we’re building into our integrated platform, and as the first phase integration is completed, more information about the new features available to ClearSlide users will be posted on this blog. If you don’t feel like ClearSlide is a good fit for you or your organization at this time, you can find out how to download your content here.

Thank you for accompanying us on this exciting ride these past five years. Here’s looking to many more productive years with ClearSlide!

Integration Focus: EDU Sunset

By Bryan Alexander on June 26, 2013

Thank you to everyone who has inquired about SlideRocket’s free educational initiative through Google Apps. As the integration of SlideRocket into ClearSlide has progressed, it has become apparent that a shift in our approach toward educational accounts is necessary and appropriate. Specifically, due to both technical and practical reasons, we will no longer be integrating with Google Apps or offering free educational accounts beyond the end of the year.

With any change, focus is important. ClearSlide is dedicated to delivering the highest quality sales engagement platform to sales and marketing teams across the world. As key SlideRocket features are available in the new integrated product, we’ll be reaching out to both SlideRocket and ClearSlide customers to demonstrate the immense value that our enhanced sales engagement platform can provide.

Thanks to all the educators that have worked with us. We hope that many of you will see the value of our integrated sales platform and will continue to rely on ClearSlide to accomplish aspects of your organizational goals. If, however, a transition to our sales engagement platform doesn’t make sense at this time, we’ll be offering export of current presentations to SlideRocket’s offline player for future use. It has been a pleasure working with educators and students to achieve their academic goals.

No New Signups: Integration In Progress

By Bryan Alexander on June 7, 2013

Thank you to everyone who has reached out to inquire about SlideRocket’s new direction these past three months! We know you still have many questions about how our integration with ClearSlide will affect existing SlideRocket accounts, and we will be updating current account holders in the near future with all the exciting things that we’ve been working on.

As with any transition, some things must change in order to make way for the new. Our website is already reflecting this. Specifically, many of you have wondered why we are no longer accepting signups for SlideRocket in its current form. This curiosity is understandable, and the answer is simple: we have been working diligently on creating an even better, integrated presentation tool. This new platform will ultimately be available from the ClearSlide website, so it makes sense that all new accounts start there.

If you’re interested in the exciting new direction SlideRocket is headed and you have a Sales or Marketing team, I highly recommend that you check out ClearSlide. You can find out more about it here. The integration of SlideRocket’s dynamic editing capabilities into ClearSlide’s acclaimed sales engagement platform will produce the most elegant, robust presentation tool available. We can’t wait to help your organization achieve its business goals!

The New Way to Work and Communicate Takes the Cloud to the Next Level

By Chuck Dietrich on August 31, 2011

This is SlideRocket’s first year participating in VMworld and the sharing of cloud best practices and introduction of new technologies is impressive. VMworld clearly demonstrates how cloud computing is impacting the way each and every one of us works.

Work is no longer defined by office space, cubicle partitions or even geographic boundaries. A dramatic shift in the business software industry from a PC-centric era to a cloud-based, mobile and social media era of computing have made work possible anytime, anywhere and on any device. Business applications in the cloud have powered a new way to work that has transformed not only where we work but how we work, communicate and collaborate. (more…)

Death by PowerPoint? SlideRocket Saves Presentations!

By May Allen on June 21, 2011

New survey data confirms, death by PowerPoint is a national epidemic and we need a presentation revolution. Check out the SlideRocket summary of our findings:

According to survey data, PowerPoint ranks among the most dreaded applications, with respondents claiming they would rather go to the dentist or work on a Saturday than face the dreaded software, and too much text and boring graphics topping the list of frustrating and uninspired features.
