m62 visualcommunications, the global leader in presentation effectiveness, has reviewed the latest version of PowerPoint and revealed its initial impressions on the latest version of the software.
Microsoft has revealed a preview of Office 2013, including its presentation software PowerPoint. Developments in PowerPoint can have a big impact on the way presenters prepare and deliver their content, and the team of experts at m62 have opted to share their first thoughts on the latest developments with others.
m62’s PowerPoint design team discovered that the fundamental basics of PowerPoint have not changed much since PowerPoint 2010. The layout and design is more modern and minimalistic, and little touches in terms of working space make the program far easier to use on a tablet device.
The most notable changes are apparent in the considerable emphasis placed on sharing and collaboration. Integration with platforms such as Bing, Flickr and Facebook allow PowerPoint users to source images from within PowerPoint. Multiple users can already comment on a PowerPoint file to create a common thread, and Microsoft has also announced that they hope to include collaboration with Yammer and Skype at a later date. These developments all suggest that PowerPoint 2013 will make sourcing content for and sharing presentations easier for the designer.
Nicholas Oulton, CEO of m62 visualcommunications, commented:
“The latest version of PowerPoint contains many improvements that we had hoped for, and some unexpected developments that should prove very exciting. Some new features, such as the ability to import photos from Facebook, won’t make things easier for the business user, but enhanced tablet performance will prove a great advantage to presenters in pitch presentations. We’re taking a close look at all new developments, and are excited to start using them in our presentations.”
