"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."

Most popular feedback for empower

empower helps me finding slides much faster that have been used in previous presentations. Secondly, I can save a lot of time making presentations brand consistent. And last but not least, I can convert old presentations with a few clicks to adjust them to our latest templates.

Most popular feedback for StoriesOnBoard

I really like the way it allows us to collaborate on stories, releases, and epics. Integrating with Jira is a very nice feature that is better and better with new releases. Also, adding an "undo" feature has been 100% excellent.

empower reviews

The central library is really helpful to at least establish a foundation to maintain a well-organized corporate library of PowerPoint slides. The authoring tools add functionality that Microsoft failed to implement for years already (and probably never will). After moving the whole solution into the cloud the administrative effort is really small and the performance is much better. Support is good and regular updates provide more features.

- Carsten S.

Helps to solve issues we had beforehand. Helps to save working time (if everybody contributes which remains a challenge). Makes working with PowerPoint more efficient.

- Carsten S. Vice President

empower helps us to create better presentations and documents in less time. So, it is essentially a no brainer because the payback of this software happens instantly.

StoriesOnBoard reviews

I like the keyboard shortcuts the most in StoriesOnBoard. It allows for easy navigation and modification of the cards in an efficient way when compared to other story mapping tools out in the market.

- David L. Chief Product Officer

I love this product! As a consultant product owner it brings sanity to an often crazy process of prioritizing an upcoming build phase. I have also had multiple good interactions with the support team when something isn't working right, as well as direct access with the engineering team to request new features.

- JT L. Sr Solution Architect

Intuitive design allows for a new user to pick this up right away and use it well quickly.

Cons
There are not many keyboard shortcuts
Deleting a card is bit painful as it is a 2 step process
I miss some shortcuts for instance to zoom in and out faster
User management is a bit tough
Even as an admin, adding yourself to an existing board makes it necessary to go find a different user management area, which is always strange
There is no way to move multiple cards at once with a ctrl+click or shift+click."
