Presenter, Inc. Announces Breakthrough E-Business Solution for Delivering Product Knowledge With Maximum Impact to Sales and Marketing Professionals

iPresentation(TM) Telephony Playback Option(TM) Enables Users to Listen

To Voice-Narrated PowerPoint(R) Presentations Anywhere and Anytime



Apr 02, 2001, 01:00 ET from Presenter, Inc.

    iEB Conference, NEW YORK, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Presenter, Inc., the
 leading developer of software applications that enable Global 2000 enterprises
 to deliver line-of-business knowledge through on-demand presentations, today
 announced the newest option to its iPresentation solution, the Telephony
 Playback Option. The Telephony Playback Option enables companies to provide
 employees and partners with an easy way to listen to voice-narrated PowerPoint
 presentations, at their own convenience, without having to make additional IT
 investments for the most up-to-date audio technology.
     Presenter has developed the Telephony Playback Option as an alternative to
 listening to voice narration by way of streaming media. While many enterprises
 have started to equip their employees' PCs with sound cards, streaming media
 players and speakers or headphones, many organizations interested in deploying
 high-impact, on-demand presentations for enterprise-wide knowledge delivery
 need a solution that works with a minimum of technical requirements.
     Presenter already supports industry-standard media players and enables
 users to access presentations with just a Web browser-no special plug-ins,
 applets or Active X controls are required. Now, Presenter has lowered the
 barriers to efficient delivery of business knowledge even further by providing
 a solution that works without streaming media.
     Instead of listening to audio through their PC, users can employ their
 telephone to listen to the voice narration synchronized to the on-demand
 PowerPoint presentation on their PC or mobile device. This is an easy,
 effective way to listen to the narrator of the presentation when a company's
 IT infrastructure does not support streaming media, when there are firewall or
 bandwidth issues, or when employees wish to listen to a presentation without
 disturbing their colleagues with sound from their PC speakers.
     By providing voice narration via the Telephony Playback Option, Presenter
 is helping companies cut costs in delivering product and market knowledge to
 sales professionals. In addition, companies save time eliminating the need to
 coordinate and schedule virtual meetings or live presentation broadcasts to
 large audiences.
     Using the iPresentation Telephony Playback Option, sales and marketing
 professionals can access presentations at their own convenience, skip through
 less interesting portions or repeat sections of the presentation that they did
 not comprehend the first time through. Presenter has developed patent-pending
 controls that give the viewer full control over on-demand presentations for
 maximum knowledge retention and comprehension.
     "Presenter is committed to meeting the needs of its customers. We
 introduced the Telephony Playback Option as a practical alternative that
 enables customers to deliver higher impact presentations while leveraging
 existing IT resources and enhancing employee productivity," said
 Konstantin Guericke, vice president of marketing for Presenter, Inc.
 "Presenter will continue to make available the widest array of options for
 accessing on-demand presentations."
     Presenter's iPresentation(TM) packaged software application is a complete
 business knowledge delivery solution that is modular, secure and scalable. It
 is hosted and thus requires no installation. All configuration and management
 can be done remotely. To turn a deck of PowerPoint slides into a
 self-contained presentation that is accessible 24x7 at the convenience of the
 audience, only a telephone and a network connection are required.
     This announcement comes on the heels of Presenter's March 20th
 announcement of its Mobile Playback Option, the industry's first solution
 providing mobile professionals with the ability to play back voice-narrated
 PowerPoint presentations on a Pocket PC
 (http://www.presenter.com/p1/ipresenter.asp?file=news-mobile.html&nav=news).
 Both options will be available by the end of April 2001.
