Why empower® slides?

We empower employees to reach their fullest potential with solutions for Office!

 

Microsoft Office is the standard software for companies across the world. Millions of people use Word, PowerPoint, Excel or Outlook every day – even though their core competence lies somewhere else and they have never learned how to use the programs from scratch. This is an unnecessary waste of time, the quality remains far below the possibilities – and users are not really happy about it either. Office is rarely the reason why they have chosen their profession. ​

We know Office like the back of our hand. We have spent over a decade getting to know its strengths and weaknesses. We love Office – even if it is not perfect in every situation. But ultimately, Office was developed for a wide variety of users – and companies have different requirements than authors. Corporate design faces freedom of formatting, clarity and relevance competes with functional diversity. Global teams need different tools than private users.

 

That’s why we set out in 2005 to revolutionize everyday office life. We develop office solutions that enable users worldwide to work more easily, uniformly and efficiently with Office. In short: we help them reach their fullest potential, and to finally have time again for what really drives them. This is our mission.
