Nerium International, a provider of leading skincare products, has always supported their sales representatives (called Brand Partners), providing them with resources to help their businesses grow. That’s because Nerium Brand Partners are the heart of the company, and their success is the success of Nerium, as the company continues to improve people’s lives through breakthrough products rooted in science. Now, Nerium Brand Partners have a new way to succeed, through the implementation of SlideShark.
Nerium International began using SlideShark Team Edition, by Brainshark, Inc, to support the brand partners in their efforts. SlideShark Team Edition is the multi-user version of Brainshark’s award winning SlideShark app, which allows viewing and sharing PowerPoint presentations on iPad and iPhone. Because the app is cloud based, it allows geographically dispersed Nerium Brand Partners access to sales and training presentations, regardless of physical location. By delivering reliable presentations on the popular Nerium skincare line on mobile devices, Brand Partners’ effectiveness in the field is greatly improved. Prior to the implementation of SlideShark, PowerPoint presentations did not display properly on the iPad, which caused some Brand Partners to have lackluster presentations. Seeking a solution that would provide an easy way to manage content and provide partners with the most relevant and up to date materials, Nerium found SlideShark.
• SlideShark improves the effectiveness of presentations. Not only can Nerium Brand Partners view and show presentations from an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, with fonts, animations, graphics and colors intact, but they can also access features like SlideShark’s iPhone remote control, “Laser Pointer”, and “Presenter Mode” to deliver truly powerful presentations. These presentations can be delivered directly on an iOS device or, when in front of larger groups, by connecting it to a TV or projector.
• With SlideShark, Nerium can provide central, secure, and permission-based access to important material. No longer having to cobble together disjointed content, Nerium Brand Partners can access all the information they need from one central, secure source.
• The message remains consistent. Because SlideShark allows Nerium International to offer Brand Partners access to ready-made, approved and up-to-date presentations, key messages and product information are communicated consistently, even across a large network of Nerium Brand Partners.
• Content is easily managed and organized. SlideShark’s folder functionality allows Brand Partners to find what they need quickly and easily.
• SlideShark allows Nerium International to track usage and effectiveness. With SlideShark Team Edition’s advanced analytics, Nerium can easily see which presentations and slides are being used most often, and when and by whom they are being used. In this way, the company can gauge presentation effectiveness, product popularity and sales activity levels.
Believing that SlideShark was the answer to the problems the company had previously faced, Nerium first rolled it out to 5,000 of the Nerium Brand Partners. The response was so overwhelmingly positive that the company has already made plans to offer SlideShark to thousands more. As Trevor Scofield, Nerium’s senior vice president for global operations, has said, “We count on our Brand Partners to truly be ambassadors for our brand, so it’s critical that we equip them with the tools they need to be successful. SlideShark enables them to ‘wow’ their audiences, and deliver presentations on our skincare products in a compelling, professional manner – conveniently and right from the iPads and iPhones they always carry.”
For their part, the team at BrainShark is delighted to be a part of Nerium’s success. “We’re pleased to help Nerium improve the effectiveness and impact of its sales presentations, and also enable the company to gain greater insight into how and when content is being used,” said Andy Zimmerman, chief marketing officer at Brainshark. “As more and more business is conducted on-the-go, via mobile devices, we congratulate Nerium on the innovative way it’s equipping brand partners for success, and are glad we could help the company get the most from its iPad investments.”
A purveyor of groundbreaking products rooted in scientific discovery, Nerium International is committed to making a difference in people’s lives, and the company counts on its brand partners to make this possible.
