New Features in SlideShark Team Edition: Conversation with David Klein

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 new features in SlideShark, Brainshark’s free app for reliably viewing and sharing PowerPoints on the iPad, and in SlideShark Team Edition.

Geetesh: Can you explain the new features added in SlideShark Team Edition, and also the features that have been made available to all SlideShark users?

David: I’d be happy to. We’ve set out on a pace of rapid innovation for SlideShark, and are pleased to be rolling out new features to help our users better find, access and present content. Chief among these enhancements is the introduction of folders in SlideShark Team Edition, the multi-user version of SlideShark.

The new folder functionality is exciting, allowing organizations to provide their users with instant, secure, and even easier access to timely, approved materials –- helping meet the needs of larger teams. Folders come in especially handy in positions like sales, where reps need to stay on top of product changes, and make sure they’re viewing and delivering only up-to-date, approved content.

Here’s how the folders work: Account administrators can create, modify and delete folders to organize content, and can also add, delete and move content within folders. Administrators can also control which users have access to which folders, and which users can upload, delete or move materials within them. Users, in turn, will only see and have access to the content for which they have permission. This feature makes it easier to differentiate the content of the various teams using SlideShark and adds another crucial level of security.

We’ve also introduced other exciting features that all our users –- across SlideShark Team Edition, SlideShark Plus, and our free SlideShark app -– can take advantage of. These include:

Geetesh: Can you share some examples of the use of SlideShark in some industry segments?

David: Sure. Since the launch of SlideShark last October and of SlideShark Team Edition in February, we’ve seen great activity and excitement among users, and strong traction across industries. Our SlideShark app continues to net two downloads per minute, 24×7, in Apple’s App Store, and Team Edition is seeing heavy adoption in industries including pharmaceuticals, technology, insurance and financial services.

We love hearing about our users’ experiences and suggestions, and have been gratified by the innovative and exemplary ways they’re using our app. Here are some recent successes they’ve had to share:

We invite all our users to keep us posted on their successes! With our new features and commitment to continual product innovation, we look forward to continuing to meet our users’ needs and to helping them access, view and present up-to-date and approved content – from their iPads and on-the-go.
