David Klein is senior director of product management at Brainshark, Inc., leading the product team in developing innovative business solutions. Brainshark’s cloud-based software lets users create online and mobile video presentations – using simple business tools like PowerPoint and the telephone – and then share and track their content. Thousands of companies use Brainshark to improve the reach and results of their business communications, while also dramatically reducing costs.
In this conversation, David discusses SlideShark, a free iPad app that allows users to properly play PowerPoint presentations on the iPad, and its recent integration with Box.
Geetesh: Tell us more about your new Box OneCloud app, and how SlideShark now seamlessly integrates with Box.
David: Sure, I'd be happy to. Box is a well-known cloud storage and collaboration provider that recently introduced Box OneCloud, which is a mobile cloud for the enterprise. With Box OneCloud, both professionals and enterprises can access a suite of more than 30 applications, including SlideShark, that are built explicitly for organizations leveraging the Box platform.
Through the integration, the community of Box users can leverage SlideShark's ability to successfully optimize PowerPoints for the iPad. The SlideShark for Box app securely uploads the user's stored PowerPoint files from their Box account directly to their SlideShark App catalog with a simple one-click upload to SlideShark option right within Box. We created a video of just how easy it is.
Geetesh: How will the new SlideShark-Box integration help users view and share PowerPoint presentations on the iPad? What does the integration mean for users?
David: With many businesses deploying iPads throughout their organizations and trusting Box for their cloud storage needs, it is a natural fit to utilize the SlideShark for Box app. By having the ability to upload PowerPoint files from Box to the SlideShark app, Box users are now able to quickly and easily view, present and share PowerPoint presentations on the iPad the way they were meant to be seen – preserving animations, fonts, colors and graphics.
Box OneCloud users can take advantage of the latest version of SlideShark, which has added capabilities for users to share and track online versions of their presentations that can be viewed on-demand and accessed on a variety of devices -– including computers, tablets and smartphones. SlideShark’s availability in OneCloud also provides an important value-added service for mobile professionals using Box for both storage and content sharing.
We're very excited to integrate with Box because it offers a unique capability that improves the experience for Box's users, while also expanding SlideShark's existing user base. The integration also underscores how SlideShark continues to be an essential and game-changing solution for mobile business professionals as evidenced by its popularity. We continue to see two downloads of the app every minute, 24x7, and a consistent ranking among the top productivity apps in Apple's App Store.
