Ok, we’re gonna take an informal survey. Raise your hand if you’ve ever experienced this:
You’re sitting through yet another dull, data-heavy presentation packed full of repetitive charts. A question gets raised, and the presenter flips furiously to find a relevant chart on page 53. A colleague squints at a dense table of numbers, wondering what it all means.
We’ve all been there. And oh! how painful. Too many times we’ve seen the aftermath of the indiscriminate boardroom presentation bore-athons. Well, it’s time to make it stop!
As a result, we at Juice challenged ourselves to find a way for ordinary business folks to create engaging, interactive presentations that leave the dreary days of Death by PowerPoint behind and bring new life to the data-presentation experience. Our solution is called Slice.
Over the last year we’ve worked with dozens of organizations to refine and enhance how Slice works. Our customers come from a diverse array of industries, from research organizations to healthcare service providers to advertising agencies.
Here’s what we learned. There are many great data analysis tools out there like Tableau for ad hoc analysis, SAS and R for statisticians, and a myriad of others. However, we’ve heard repeatedly from real users that these tools fall flat on helping people become data presenters.
Slice solves that data presentation problem.
Once you’ve done the analysis and you know what to communicate, packaging the results in the proper way is critical. But, to do it right
- You want the design to be striking, but you’re not a designer;
- You want engaging interactivity, but you’re not a developer and the IT wait list is overflowing;
- You might cobble something together using Excel and PowerPoint, but mediocrity is not what you’re looking for.
Slice removes these constraints by focussing on the last mile of business intelligence: presenting data with the visual precision, interactivity and excellence in a way that sparks engagement.
We are really excited about how Slice makes a difference for people who have struggled too long with delivering data-rich presentations or reports. Interested in seeing the advantage Slice can give you? We’ve just released a new version and we’d be happy to set you up with a 30-day trial.
