[Webinar Recording] Report Automation and Data Visualization in Excel and PowerPoint

View the recording to explore the OfficeReports plug-in for Microsoft Office.

There is a call for far more intuitive and user-friendly tools to support the process from survey data to infographic based presentations around the Microsoft Office platform.

Excel and PowerPoint play predominant roles as leading delivery methods for reports and presentations in the market research industry. But as reports and presentations are changing from standard table/chart/text based deliveries to far more visual oriented presentations, the reporting processes gets complex and time consuming.

Register today!

In this presentation, Torben Laustsen and Fred Balkenende, founders of OfficeReport, will explore how the OfficeReports plug-in for Microsoft Office:

  • Adds a powerful cross-tab tool in Excel which creates cross-tabs and banner reports in Excel including standard statistics.

  • Adds a complete report automation tool to PowerPoint which links tables, charts and shapes in presentations with Excel data, and keeps the presentation updated when the data changes.
