New Software From Workshare Makes Comparing Microsoft PowerPoint Presentations Fast and Easy

Quickly Identify Differences, Combine Multiple Versions, Apply Changes and Create a New Master Presentation

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/03/09 -- Workshare, the global leader in document comparison software, today introduced Workshare Compare for PowerPoint, software which allows for fast, flexible and easy comparisons of Microsoft PowerPoint presentations. For the first time, PowerPoint users have an easy and intuitive way to track and manage edits made in PowerPoint slides -- whether it is changes made by collaborators and reviewers, or within various versions of a presentation made by one individual.

With an estimated 30 million presentations created every day, Workshare Compare for PowerPoint provides users an easy way to identify slides and slide elements that have been modified, deleted, or inserted. Users can initiate a comparison directly within the PowerPoint interface to identify changes to text, images, speaker notes, fonts, the slide master, and more.

Whether comparing and identifying the differences in small presentations or those with 1000+ slides, Workshare Compare for PowerPoint provides ease of use and flexibility with multiple slide views, custom comparison themes, and reporting options that provide a complete history of changes. And after identifying the differences between presentations, Workshare Compare for PowerPoint enables users to easily combine slides from different versions into a single master presentation.

For more than ten years Workshare has provided the leading comparison software for Microsoft Word. Workshare has now applied its technology and expertise to PowerPoint presentation slides. For employees and consultants familiar with the nightmare of reviewing, editing and comparing large and complicated PowerPoint slide decks, the Workshare solution saves time, avoids mistakes, reduces frustration and allows users to spend more time producing high quality presentations.

"When I first heard there was a new product that tells you what changes have been made to a PowerPoint file I could not believe my ears," said Diane Raabe, a Senior Associate at a top four accounting firm. "Workshare Compare for PowerPoint is a dream come true."

"We know users have been looking for a way to manage collaborative versions of PowerPoint slide decks for almost as long as Microsoft has been offering PowerPoint and now for the first time a really efficient application is available to make that possible," says John Grillos, Senior Vice President of Marketing. "This product offers every PowerPoint user a better way to manage and build presentations. And because users can easily configure the software to meet their particular needs, this is a very flexible solution which delivers significant time savings."
