Why Not Make Presentations Easier
A good presentation can make or break a deal and can be the difference between catching that big break or staying right where you are. While most people may not care for their presentations, whatever they may be for, Shufflrr is making your presentation upkeep and display smarter and easier. With control across your enterprise and quick creation across platforms, Shufflrr is saving you a ton of time and possibly making you an untold amount of capital.
Today, we sit down with cofounder AlexAnndra Ontra to learn more about shuffler and gain an inside look at how the company is seeking to revolutionize the slide presentation.
Tell us about the product or service.
Shufflrr is the leading presentation management SaaS for enterprises. It visualizes content, so that users can find, and reuse the file or slide they need, when they need it, making them more productive and efficient in their sales, marketing and training efforts.
How is it different?
Shufflrr treats presentations as an enterprise communications platform — a critical element of the marketing mix. Companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars planning, implementing, and their advertising, website, social or event marketing campaigns. But when it comes to presentations, they slap a logo on a template and let everyone fend for themselves. Each presentation is treated as one-up event – one and done. This is a wasted resource because presentations have so much valuable knowledge embedded within them, yet they lay dormant on a network drive, or someone’s email, somewhere. Shufflrr makes those files easily accessible to the rest of the staff – so they can use them, for their particular task. Shufflrr transforms what were once dormant files, into active sales materials.
