Tip of the Week: PowerPoint as a Multi-Purpose Tool

Tip of the Week: PowerPoint as a Multi-Purpose Tool

Microsoft PowerPoint is a well-known solution - well-known enough that the product has become synonymous with the task, regardless of what program one happens to use. Of course, this doesn’t mean that one necessarily must use it to create a presentation to go with a sales pitch. For this week’s tip, we’ll suggest a few other tasks you could complete with the help of a PowerPoint presentation.

One of the nicest parts of Microsoft Powerpoint is how it can almost serve as a very rudimentary vector graphic design software, especially if you’re just trying to add some visual context to a concept - like, for example, in an infographic. Using a single .pptx file, you could create all the infographics your company needs, printing them out or saving them as PDFs as the occasion demands.

Training Quizzes
A big problem with a lot of the training that an employee needs to undergo as a part of their employment is that it can be fairly dull, much of it comprised of note after note cycled past them on a screen. That’s hardly an effective way to go about building a habit. However, with a properly prepared PowerPoint, you can turn your training lecture into an interactive question and answer quiz, with engaging visuals to help hold your staff’s attention.

Onboarding Process
Speaking of your staff, I’m sure we can all remember our first few days on our respective jobs, and the onboarding process that we had to undergo. Chances are, it wasn’t all too dissimilar to the training quizzes we just discussed. Like these trainings, PowerPoint can be used to give these onboarding seminars a little more pizazz, and chances are, this will only help to make these seminars more engaging and impactful.

Company News
This is an easy cheat that you see high schools use all the time for their daily announcements: you can use PowerPoint to create a news banner that scrolls repeatedly throughout the day. Whether you want to make sure everyone remembers the meeting on Tuesday, or you have clients who should know about your upcoming promotion, it is simple to set up your announcement reel and just have them playing on a monitor throughout the day. Think of it as a budget-friendly form of digital signage.

Simple Flyer Creator
Need a quick deliverable? Just like you could a quick infographic, you can whip up a quick flyer on PowerPoint and print them up, ready to go. While it isn’t ideal, it’s an easy way to get the job done.

Whether Microsoft PowerPoint is your go-to solution for these needs, or you prefer to use more “official” solutions, Central Technology Solutions can help you get your hands on the software tools to get the job done. Reach out to us at 1-844-237-4300 to learn more.
