The Charteo GmbH is an agency with over 10 years’ experience in the creation of PowerPoint templates. The internationally oriented company provides a broad selection of more than 15,000 individual slides and additionally predesigned presentations. The high-quality presentation slides include graphs, charts, tables, and templates of various marketing and business topics, developed and produced by our own professional design team.
The aim was to develop the world‘s first PowerPoint single slide store where customers can compose individual slides to a complete PowerPoint presentation and download directly online. The composition of the individual slides to a presentation must be intuitive, simple and user friendly.
The customer is offered an innovative platform on which he receives his predesigned slides as a PowerPoint file.
The broad selection of product images is arranged in different categories and must be clearly displayed in PowerPoint design. The customer needs to be able to compose the individual presentation within minutes. New interfaces are required to generate the composed PowerPoint files for download. Business customers, which are the main target group should be able to adapt the matching color of the corporate design and have flexible payment methods to choose from.
The solution is based on the OXID eShop Professional Edition. The products can be easily placed in the shopping cart with drag‘n‘drop. With a programmed color configurator, the presentation can be displayed in one of the chosen eight colors. To improve site performance the AJAX based technology allows a direct insertion of the products in the shopping cart without loading times.
The customer can compose his presentation with individual slides or he has the option to select the pre-designed presentation set. At the end of the order procedure he receives a PowerPoint file as a download. A new interface has been programmed to allow the direct generation of the PowerPoint slide from the download Composer. The customer should be provided with flexible payment options like the possibility for direct payments or a virtual-payment method in form of a credit system.
The effort has paid off: The successful implementation of Charteo shop was awarded with the „IT Innovation Award“ at CeBIT in the field of e-Commerce by the Initiative for mid-size business. The award is sponsored by the Federal Commissioner for Information Technology of the Federal Government and IBM Germany and is awarded to innovative SME range of IT solutions with high added value.
„With the support of Oxid-shops we were able to successfully
implement our idea of the World‘s First PowerPoint Single Slide
Download Store. Winning the innovation award shows that we
made the right partner choice.”
