LONDON, 13 October 2011
Charity Technology Trust (CTT) has today announced that SlideRocket , the provider of online presentation software once described as "PowerPoint on steroids," has joined CTT’s technology donation programme, CTXchange. Charities and not-for-profit organisations will be able to access the software as a CTXchange donation.
SlideRocket is a web-based service for creating, managing and sharing online multimedia presentations. It offers customers the ability to create better slideshows quicker from within any browser or to import them from existing PowerPoint slide decks or Google Docs presentations. Presentations are stored on SlideRocket’s secure servers and can be accessed from any device that is connected to the internet. Presentations are easy to share, with no more bulky email attachments. As it is cloud-based, SlideRocket avoids version control headaches. It also keeps track of how many times a presentation is viewed and provides analytics tools to measure its effectiveness.
"CTXchange is a wonderful way of making mainstream software available to the charitable and voluntary sector," commented J.J. Freitag, Chief Operating Officer of SlideRocket. "Our cloud-based model, which allows organisations simply to tap into the software via the internet whenever they need it, is perfect for these types of organisations. We are delighted to be part of the programme and look forward to seeing SlideRocket help as many not-for-profit organisations as possible."
"It is increasingly important for third sector organisations to present themselves professionally to donors, beneficiaries, government and to the public at large," said Richard Craig, CEO of CTT. "SlideRocket’s availability via CTXchange will make it possible for them to produce interactive presentations of an exceptionally high standard, incorporating audio, video and animation, all from an easy to use service."
Organisations can preview SlideRocket by taking an interactive tour or watching a video preview on the SlideRocket website.
