Brainshark’s SlideShark App Wins Multiple Honors in TabTimes’ Tabby Awards

" SlideShark – For Showing PowerPoints From the iPad and iPhone – Named ‘Best Productivity App’ and ‘Best Presentation App’ in Worldwide Awards Program"

WALTHAM, Mass. — November 14, 2013 — Brainshark, Inc., the leader in cloud-based business presentations, today announced that its SlideShark app – for showing PowerPoints from the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch – is a winner in the second annual Tabby Awards /Business competition. Run by TabTimes, the online media outlet exclusively covering news and trends in the tablet industry, the Tabby Awards recognize the best business and productivity apps worldwide. SlideShark was the only app to be honored twice in this year’s awards: winning the “Best Productivity App” and “Best Presentation App” categories.

An international panel of independent judges – including more than 20 tablet app developers and mobile experts – selected the winning apps from submissions worldwide. Winners were announced yesterday at the TabTimes TabletBiz conference & expo in New York City. Brainshark’s CMO Andy Zimmerman was also chosen to speak on the “Tablets in Sales: Getting to Yes Faster” panel at the event.

“We’re grateful for this recognition in the Tabby Awards. It speaks to SlideShark’s value for improving the productivity and agility of mobile professionals around the world, while solving their presentation needs,” Zimmerman said. “As a powerful solution that helps users present professionally and reliably from their iOS devices – with innovative features to help them manage, share and track their content – SlideShark is truly a presenter’s best friend.”

Described by TabTimes as experiencing “a groundswell of demand,” SlideShark enables iPad users to do what was previously impossible: view and show PowerPoints the way they were meant to be seen – with fonts, animations, graphics, hyperlinks and videos intact. The app – available on the iPhone and iPod touch too – also serves as a platform for distributing, tracking and managing presentations in the cloud, and lets users broadcast their presentations, live and intact, over the Web. Companies worldwide use SlideShark Team Edition, the business version of SlideShark, to centrally manage presentation assets, apply permissions-based access to content and track usage in the field, among other advanced features.

Since its launch two years ago, SlideShark has:

  • Had more than 5 million presentations uploaded by users.
  • Converted more than 150 million slides into an iOS-friendly format.
  • Attracted corporate and individual users in more than 150 countries.
  • Remained a top “Productivity App” in Apple’s App Store.
  • Won more than 25 industry awards – including “Best Sales App” in last year's Tabby Awards competition.
