Top solution provider partners with Brainshark

PowerPoint on an iPad maybe a great idea, but rarely does it work. To often it leads to distorted presentations. CDN’s No. 1 solution provider Softchoice of Toronto will be enabling its customers to present PowerPoint presentations properly on a tablet device.

The solution provider has partnered with Waltham, Mass.-based sales enablement platform developer Brainshark, the makers of SlideShark.

SlideShark is a cloud-based platform  app made for Apple iPads and iPhone. The new partnership enables Softchoice to resell and support SlideShark Team Edition along with other Brainshark products.  Brainshark’s products are now also available through Softchoice Cloud, a secure online platform for purchasing, deploying and managing cloud-based applications – allowing IT departments to serve as a cloud services brokerage within their organizations.

Softchoice is able to provide customers with large-scale iPad deployments for mobile workers.

By offering SlideShark Team Edition, Softchoice ensures that clients who want to view and deliver PowerPoint presentations using their iPads and iPhones can do so – properly and reliably. Brainshark is used in more than 140 countries. According to the company, SlideShark enables iOS users to view and present PowerPoints the way they were meant to be seen – with fonts, animations, graphics, hyperlinks and videos intact.

The Brainshark partnership also enables Softchoice to offer enterprise-class features for securely distributing, tracking and managing presentations in the cloud. Mobile users can also broadcast their presentations live, over the Web, and invite others to join.

Josh Greene, vice president of business development at Softchoice, said the company is seeing iPad purchases continue to accelerate, so being able to provide SlideShark Team Edition through the Softchoice Cloud platform as a complementary solution offers a lot of value to customers. Customers rely on PowerPoint for their business presentations – and now with SlideShark delivered securely through the cloud, they can maximize their iPad investments, and deliver presentations professionally and reliably from their mobile devices.

In addition to SlideShark Team Edition, Brainshark On-Demand is also currently available through Softchoice Cloud. This flagship platform from Brainshark creates, shares and tracks online video presentations, which can be viewed anytime, from computers and mobile devices.

Bob Bristol, vice president of channel sales at Brainshark, saidto partner with Softchoice, a world-class solutions provider, further extend the reach and impact of Brainshark solutions.
