"Awards Program Honors Best Business and Productivity Apps for Tablets: Recognizing SlideShark's Role in Equipping Mobile Sales Professionals for Success"


WALTHAM, Mass. — December 4, 2012 — Brainshark, Inc., the leader in online and mobile presentations, today announced that its SlideShark app was honored in the inaugural Tabby Awards /Business competition – a program that recognizes the best business and productivity apps for tablets. SlideShark – the app for viewing and sharing PowerPoints on the iPad and iPhone – won the “Best Sales App” category. The Tabby Awards are run by TabTimes, the online media outlet exclusively covering news and trends in the tablet industry.

An international panel of independent judges selected the winning apps from submissions worldwide. Winners were announced last week at the TabTimes TabletBiz conference & expo in New York City.

“Sales reps are the ultimate road warriors – so it’s critical they have hassle-free, mobile access to the PowerPoints they rely on,” said Lisa Johnson, Brainshark’s vice president of SlideShark marketing. “SlideShark lets sales teams leave their laptops at home, and deliver powerful presentations right from their iPads and iPhones. We’re thrilled to be recognized in the Tabby Awards for SlideShark’s role in supporting mobile sales enablement and in helping companies maximize their iPad investments.”

With SlideShark, iPad and iPhone users can view PowerPoints the way they were meant to be seen – with fonts, animations, graphics and colors intact – and take advantage of powerful presentation features. Companies worldwide use SlideShark Team Edition, the multi-user business version of SlideShark, to equip distributed salesforces with up-to-date and high-impact presentations, organize and manage content, and see when and how content is being viewed and shared.

Since its launch one year ago, SlideShark has been:

  • Downloaded more than 1 million times – with a steady rate of two downloads/min., 24x7.
  • Used by businesses and individuals in more than 140 countries.
  • Rated 4.5 stars (out of 5) in Apple’s App Store, based on thousands of user reviews.
