Microsoft PowerPoint is the most widely used presentation tool in the world. It is used for everything from sales presentations and project reviews to board presentations and investor meetings. Even though PowerPoint is easy to use, repetitive creation of of slides can be tedious and time consuming. Some PowerPoint presentations contain a lot of charts, graphs and tables of data pulled from corporate systems and databases. Manually gathering this data, cleansing it and creating meaningful visuals can be challenging or even impossible for some users.

DataCycle Reporting will automatically pull data from corporate systems and databases, generate the corresponding charts, graphs and tables and save the results right in your PowerPoint template. It will even email the slides to your list of recipients.
