Brainshark’s SlideShark App Wins in 2013 Mobile Merit Awards

"Honored for Second Consecutive Year, SlideShark Lets iPad and iPhone Users Show PowerPoints Properly and Reliably, and Broadcast Their Presentations Live Over the Web"

WALTHAM, Mass. — September 16, 2013 — Brainshark, Inc., the leading sales enablement platform provider, today announced that its SlideShark app – for showing PowerPoints properly from the iPad and iPhone – was honored in the 2013 Mobile Merit Awards. SlideShark was the winner in the “Mobile Apps: iPads/Tablets” category.

The Mobile Merit Awards celebrate excellence in the global mobile industry, honoring companies and products that have shaped the way the world communicates today. Judges, including industry executives, members of the media and consultants, evaluated this year’s record-breaking volume of submissions based on innovation, technology employed, social importance, implementation and success – with winners poised to have the greatest impact on the market.

This year marks the second year in a row that Brainshark won the awards’ “iPad/Tablets” category with its SlideShark app. SlideShark was also runner-up in the “Mobile Apps: Overall Enterprise” category this year.

With corporate and individual users in more than 150 countries, SlideShark is the industry standard for showing PowerPoints from the iPad. iOS users can do what was previously impossible: view and present PowerPoints the way they were meant to be seen – with fonts, animations, graphics, hyperlinks and videos intact. Free, with business upgrades available, SlideShark also serves as a platform to securely distribute, track and manage presentations in the cloud.

In particular, the Mobile Merit Awards honored leading-edge features in Brainshark’s SlideShark 3.0 update, unveiled in March, including presentation broadcasting capabilities. SlideShark Broadcasting lets mobile users broadcast their presentations, live and intact, over the Web, and get data on who attended their sessions.

“We’re grateful for this honor from the Mobile Merit Awards – a testament to SlideShark’s impact and success,” said Andy Zimmerman, chief marketing officer at Brainshark. “SlideShark’s groundbreaking features, including broadcasting, are helping companies reshape and reimagine their business meetings. We’re committed to frequent innovation, so SlideShark can continue to help mobile presenters be more effective and productive in their jobs.”
