At trade fairs, exhibitions and events, in sales or at simple presentations, a number of repeatedly occurring problems with digital presentations are wasting time and money, lead to lower quality and cause unnecessary stress. Problems range from the incompatibility between hard- and software, home-made breaches of the corporate design to costly or non-existent content updates.
Over a number of years, we have developed the innovative software framework cloudFOLIO that allows the optimization of digital presentations in regards to brand consistency, dialogue support and general handling. This allows users to create presentations of higher quality and profitability.
The number of different output formats, devices and software versions are increasing steadily and cause a a higher risk of presentation problems: 4:3 becomes 16:9 or vice versa, software incompabilities or missing fonts cause presentation problems.
The brand appearance can also be misperseived by the user side – due to free interpretation of the corporate design or supposed“cool effects”
Automatic adaptation to Screen Size and Ratio
No matter what kind of display you are using, what size or ratio, cloudFOLIO will always adapt to fit the screen without stretching or squashing images or logos.
cloudFOLIO runs stable on PC, Mac, iPads and iPhones, Android is in the works.
Screen design, navigation logic, typography, templateds and effects will be adjusted to your corporate design. With cloudFOLIO your presentation always looks brand orientated no matter who is editing it.
Subbrands or subsidiaries can use the same presentation in their own layout with just one klick.
Your presentation is consisted of 60 slides, divided into 7 sections you want to present consecetuvely within 30 minutes.
So far so good
But what if…
Our software was developed for the optimization of the dialoghe between costumers and stake holders.
Thanks to non linear navigation structue you can jump from each point of the presentation to another in order to anser questions quickly and accurately or to to change the order“on the fly”. You can also skip subjects or delve deeper into them – depending on the preferences of your conversation partner or the progress of the presentation or discussion.
With cloudFOLIO it’s possible to connect any number of devices and remote control them. The selected “master” device controls the other devices, even your iPhone or iPad.
Our unique remote control processor only sends short signals via the network. There’s no need to stream media data via the network cause the presentation is locally available on each device.
That’s why there won’t be any delays and movies and pictures are always looking great.
With this feature you can respond flexibly to various dialogues in presentation- and consulting situatons.
In one-to-one conversations you look at one screen together, at larger groups it’s possible to and switch on and remote control a bigger screen.
Multimidia presentations can also presented on several screens. The presentations can also be splitted onto the screens
The same product – or company presentation is used over a longe period by many emplyees or distribution partners at different locations. For this process master versions of powerpoint, keynote etc. are created and designed for certain occasions, countries and costumer segments.
The local presentation has to be adapted to the customized demands (personal addressing, costumized content and prizing etc.) At the same time the contents have to be updated regularly by the corporate headquarters.
Over time the number of presentation versions is increasing exponentially. You lose track of who is presenting which version. It’s costly and nearly impossible to make sure that the versions are updated comprehensively.
This results in increasing individual infringements of the corporate design.
Master presentations are located on one server and are maintained centrally there. Once downloaded, they are available offline and editable on every device. As soon as you are online or connected to your network you can update your presentations on the server.
User rights management
Three types of users available: an “admin” can edit and deploy the master presentations. Based on the master presentation. “User A” can edit and upload individual presentations. “User B” can only present. Updates occour automatically on the server.
Optimized Media Management
cloudFOLIO will never download the same file twice, optimizing your bandwidth and disk space - especially important if you are running on a mobile or tablet device. This also makes synchronization fast - something that we all need.
Presentations as a website
You can transform your cloudFOLIO presentation into a fully functional website with jus one klick and make them password protected or freely accessible online.
Text, video and photo can be pasted into a classic presentation programme without too much difficulty. But PDF files can only be linked, and if you want to view them you have to leave the presentation programme.
cloudFOLIO presentations can easily be edited offline on any device. Text, photo, video, links and PDF documents can be integrated and fully navigated in the presentation.
You can add or delete media and text and move entire blocks of content via drag’n’drop or copy & paste according to your needs. Once connected to a syncing server or the cloud, these changes can be uploaded and synced to other devices.
Format options, templates and effects are limited to the essential in order to ensure a professional appearance of the corporate design.
You want to activate certain hardware interactions in a presentation, in order to demonstrate product features on a real exhibit, for instance. Or,conversely, specific actions on the real product shall activate the corresponding content in the supporting media display.
No problem, but it can be very expensive.
Hardware interaction is available in each presentation so you can interact with every hardware via phidgets or DMX-controlling – in both directions.
