typical PowerPoint pain points

Automatic waterfall charts

Creating waterfalls in PowerPoint is time-consuming and error-prone. You either push basic shapes around or use a hidden data row that supports floating segments. Hence, any data change implies many manual calculations and adjustments.

In think-cell, positive data values in waterfalls build up, negative values build down. This works automatically, even for stacked segments. Segments can cross the baseline and build upon segments in any category – not only the previous one.

Data-driven visual annotations

Whether it be total labels, percentages, averages, breaks, difference arrows or CAGRs – think-cell will help you to tell the story behind your data by offering dozens of data-driven visual annotations.

And what is even better: All calculations and placements are done automatically. Your derived data will always be correct and labels or arrows will never overlap.

Calender-based Gantt charts

Ever tried to import a Gantt chart from Microsoft Visio or Project into PowerPoint? If yes, you know that this doesn't work very well. If not, you might still use basic boxes and lines to draw them yourself.

think-cell puts an end to these tedious best practices. You create and update calender-based Gantt charts directly in PowerPoint. Features such as 5- or 7-day work weeks, remark and responsibility labels or time span brackets make sure that your work time on Gantts reduces to a few minutes instead of hours.

Mekko charts for complex analyses

Want to show market share for different competitors and different product categories at the same time? Why not add a second dimension to your data visualization? A Mekko (also known as Marimekko) is the perfect chart for this job.

think-cell's Mekko chart is a two-dimensional 100% chart or stacked chart. Column widths are calculated automatically or can be provided by you. Values can be ordered by size and small values can be hidden in an "other" series.

Flexible process flows

Have you ever tried building a simple process chain in PowerPoint? Are you still struggling with the right positioning of basic shapes or trying to combine weird SmartArt objects that never align correctly and fall apart after a few interactions?

Then meet our brand-new process flow. With it you create and change simple flows in minutes. But since it is based on a powerful generic layout engine, you are completely flexible and can build any conceptual slide based on pentagons, chevrons and text boxes.

Emergent agendas

A table of contents or agenda helps you structure your findings and guide your audience through your chain of thought. Any good word processor has one – why is it missing in PowerPoint?

With think-cell, creating and maintaining a complete agenda in PowerPoint is as simple as creating a table of contents in a word processor. You don't need to use a special agenda tool, you simply insert chapter slides and think-cell will do the rest – even if you reorder slides. Any change to a chapter title will be reflected everywhere.

Automated Excel data visualization

You spend hours and hours on updating charts in your reports every month? Cut down these hours to a few minutes!

With think-cell's data links, every chart in your presentation can be linked to an Excel workbook and updated either manually or automatically. think-cell's programmatic interface offers even more automation. Once set up, it will create entire slide decks from your chart templates and designated Excel data ranges. Periodic reporting couldn't be easier.

Data extraction from any column chart image

Have you recently seen a chart on a web site or in a PDF report that you would have liked to use in your presentation? Using copy & paste in this situation yields good visual results, but makes changes impossible. On the other hand, guessing and retyping the data underlying the chart is time-consuming and error-prone.

Using think-cell, you simply drag a transparent window over any image of a column chart on your screen, hit the import button and let our software do the rest. It will not only correctly extract the data, but also the category labels and put them into your Excel sheet. From there, a think-cell chart in PowerPoint is only one click away.
