It’s easy for us to get ahead of ourselves when we’re talking about SoloFire’s unique, game-changing features. Especially when it is a feature such as giving you the power to convert PowerPoint to HTML. So before we go any further, let’s establish a baseline for us to expand on.
PowerPoint is the defacto presentation and design tool for many sales and marketing teams. It’s accessible and it’s “intuitive-ish”. Consequently, many organizations go to great lengths to create content for sales, training, and more in PowerPoint. You could even say PowerPoint presentations are the lifeblood of most sales teams. We meet with customers on a regular basis that have PowerPoint decks that exceed 200 slides in a single deck. They end up segmenting that deck into smaller decks for various purposes.
However, the problem is most sales asset apps used by sales reps can’t convert PowerPoints. And if they do convert PowerPoint presentations, they typically lose the bells and whistles of the presentation.
The Challenges of PowerPoints
When sales reps go into a meeting with a prospective customer, they end up having a fragmented presentation with no transitions or videos because the PowerPoint isn’t compatible with whatever sales enablement tool they’re using. Or sometimes slides can be out of order and sales reps are left with no choice but to adapt on the fly or lose the audience’s attention.
This leads to frustration because the reps have to spend time trying to find a workaround for their presentation. Marketing also becomes frustrated because they have to spend more time and money rebuilding the presentation. Without the option to convert PowerPoint presentations into another format that preserves functionality, they usually end turning it into a PDF that isn’t nearly as engaging or sleek-looking.
With all of the hard work put into these presentations from sales and marketing, don’t you want sales technology that you can rely on? Instead of hoping that everything runs smoothly next time your reps use a PowerPoint in their sales presentation? Say goodbye to that problem!

More Than Presentation Management
