YOUpresent was the perfect partner

YOUpresent Ltd. today announced the successful conclusion of a contract with Censeo Consulting Group for the development of a custom PowerPoint add-in, designed to simplify the presentation creation process and ensure that all presentations are in line with Censeo’s PowerPoint standards and visual brand.

Evan Hodges-LeClaire, an Associate at Censeo Consulting Group and Censeo’s lead for the development, said: "PowerPoint presentations are the primary medium we use to convey information to clients, and our consultants spend a significant portion of their time crafting them. We recognized the potential to streamline and improve this process, and YOUpresent was the perfect partner to help us do so. Thanks to the PowerPoint add-in they developed for us, our consultants can now create better presentations in a fraction of the time it used to take.

In order to meet Censeo’s requirements, YOUpresent developed a custom layer on top of SwiftPrez, one of its existing PowerPoint add-ins. SwiftPrez enables users to access an updated library of branded assets such as icons, charts and illustrations directly from the PowerPoint ribbon, and automatically checks finished presentations for compliance with company style guides.

The custom add-in for Censeo, named DeckPro, builds off of the SwiftPrez core and adds several advanced time-saving functions. Content administrators can manage both Censeo and client-branded templates on a server, and push changes to all users’ PCs to ensure firm- wide accessibility of the latest version. Users can easily switch between different templates, and all custom layout designs will automatically adjust to the selected template. DeckPro also provides buttons for quick access to a Censeo style guide or email support, as well as a range of proofing workflow tools.

"Companies with large numbers of PowerPoint users often struggle to manage templates and asset libraries effectively, and productivity and consistency suffer as a result," said Jamie Garroch, CEO of YOUpresent. "Many are unaware of the almost limitless customisation options that PowerPoint add-ins can provide, but Censeo saw the potential. We are very pleased to have been able to help Censeo streamline and improve the presentation building experience for its employees."
