SmartDraw Reinvents PowerPoint?

SmartDraw, the California-based software company, has previewed its new SmartDraw software application at the Presentation Summit in San Diego this week.

The software, said to reinvent PowerPoint, helps users to prepare their PowerPoint slide shows; slide shows with pictures, drawings, flow-charts and diagrams. It’s a departure from the usual business PowerPoint slide deck comprising bullet lists ad infinitum.

SmartDraw allows its users to plan, prepare and produce their own presentations without even opening their copy of PowerPoint. Their SmartDraw visual processor gives users the tools to turn out their newly-formed pictures and diagrams in a PowerPoint presentation with one click. Simple stuff.

If SmartDraw can get more than a toe-hold in the market we really could begin to see some more visually rich business PowerPoint presentations. Now that would be very welcome.
