Power your way up in the corporate world with authorSTREAM


Pune: "The art of communication is the language of leadership." — James Humes

Suiting aptly to the quote, the communication is the one of the major drivers of most businesses. With the world shrinking due to globalization, the face of business communication is making a shift from lengthy documents to crispier and instant information, to meet the instant communication demand. Presentation is one such tool, which helps structure one's thoughts in an effective way. That is why presentations are increasingly used in the corporate world. Recent numbers suggest that about 30 million PowerPoint presentations are created everyday. Figures also show that the number of PowerPoint presentation users is about 500 million. Though internet is the best mode of to send these presentations to meet instant communication needs across geographies, the heavy size of PowerPoint, speed of internet and the sense of losing control over the presentation are major hindrances to meet the objective.

In such a situation, one needs a solution and an easy way to share these presentations. authorSTREAM (http://www.authorstream.com) provides the solution. authorSTREAM is a user generated presentation site, which empowers the author of presentations to reach its viewers directly over the internet. Mr. Umesh Sharma, Product head, authorSTREAM says, “In today’s corporate world, PowerPoint presentations are an important authoring tool and authorSTREAM is the safest, simplest and effective mode of sharing and distributing them to meet the immediate communication needs. We are getting tremendous response from the users which is evident from the increasing number of presentation uploading and views per month.”

Briefly, authorSTREAM can be a solution to all the presentation-sharing problems in the world of communication.
