London, U.K. (PRWEB) July 14, 2006
altaVENTE announce the launch of their FirstWave programme, designed to provide customers of Rhapzode 'the PowerPoint Compiler' with an update compatible with Microsoft Office 2007 Beta 2.
The FirstWave update is designed to take advantage of new features in the upcoming version 12 of Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007. Specifically, this FirstWave release of Rhapzode will support the new graphics and the new .PPTx file format. There are also updates to the narration facility with the addition of a teleprompter. Security features for validity, authentication, expiry, clearance levels, single .EXE output and encryption remain unchanged enabling customers needing to protect their presentations to utilise these new features.
Speaking about the announcement, altaVENTE founder Tim Carmichael said, 'We are excited to deliver this update to our customers, many of whom are already actively experimenting with Microsoft Office 2007, to show our commitment to be in the first wave of Microsoft partners delivering solutions for the next generation of Microsoft Office. We will be closely supporting those of our customers wishing to take part in the FirstWave programme, so that Rhapzode and Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 are perfectly matched at final release.'
Customers wishing to participate in the FirstWave programme should email to beta @ altavente.com with FirstWave in the subject line. There is no charge for licensed customers wishing to take part in the FirstWave programme.
