How much of your time do you sink into PowerPoint?


Using the Affenium PowerPoint Production Support (PPS) is like having your own personal assistant to work on your PowerPoint presentations.

Our designers can do it all, from editing and enhancing existing presentations, to transferring presentations to new corporate templates, to ensuring compliance with your corporate visual identity.


Using the PPS couldn’t be easier. When you have set up a PPS agreement with us, all you have to do to use the service is to send your task to our designers via email. In your email you attach the files that you would like the designers to work on, as well as your specific instructions and your deadline. They will take care of the work and send it back to you directly via email.

We prefer to keep things simple and transparent, which is why we don’t put a middle layer in between you and your designer to manage things. Instead we simply let you communicate directly with the experts who work on your slides. This makes everything faster and cheaper and prevents misunderstandings.

We also extend this preference for simplicity to our pricing. Our competitive pricing is charged per minute of actual production time spent with no minimum monthly usage commitment, no pre-payments or “packages” that expire, and no trying to guestimate the time spent when paying per slide or per job. We take care of all administration and provide you with a monthly invoice with full usage statistics.


We understand how important your information is to your business and we take every possible precaution to ensure the safety and confidentiality of that information. All of our designer’s complete full confidentiality training and sign a comprehensive NDA agreement before they see any client material. When you contact us about making a PPS agreement, we share our full confidentiality policy with you so you can have confidence in the security of the service. Furthermore, we are always open to discussing implementing additional confidentiality measures if this could be relevant to you.


The designers of the Affenium PPS are fully briefed on the principles of best-practice PowerPoint design and can help ensure that the tools and techniques that are taught in our Best-Practice PowerPoint presentation are implemented in the presentations they return to you.
