For a while, MousEffects was stuck creating "Private Label Presentations" by hand. Creating a presentation was often a time consuming and tedious process, since each required customized graphics and web pages, which meant that they required graphic design and programming skills to complete. The software I created, aptly called the "Private Label Presentation Creator" (or PLP Creator for short), allowed anyone to create a presentation on the fly with little training. All they had to do was specify a file to use for the company's logo and then just fill in the rest of the fields with contact information.The Benefit
Since our designers and developers were already very busy, I proposed that the PLP Creator be developed so that these presentations could be generated automatically. The software had several immediate benefits for the company:
- Reduced time: Now presentations could be generated with just a little input and the click of a button.
- Little training required: Entry-level employees could now produce presentations which meant graphic design and programming specialists were freed up for more important tasks.
- Quality Assurance: Rules were built into the software, so a presentation could not be finished until these rules were met. Also allowed the option send a notification to a QA specialist to review work before publishing, which in turn helped improve customer satisfaction because errors were reduced.
