SmartStart uses think-cell to present complex data

Are you having difficulty presenting complex data? SmartStart uses think-cell, a Microsoft PowerPoint and Excel add-in software with dozens of features that enable users to quickly create complex data-driven charts, maintain a presentation's structure with auto-updating agendas, and consistently round numbers in Excel sheets.

think-cell also makes it is possible to create professional charts such as waterfalls, Marimekkos and Gantts within a few minutes, and to automatically update them from linked Excel data. The agenda-building capability is similarly automated—maintaining a complete agenda in PowerPoint functions in the same manner as a table of contents in a good word processor. The Excel add-in enables consistently rounded numbers across both complex calculations and multiple work sheets.
