Bigtincan Acquires SlideGo to Further Revolutionize Presentation Capabilities on Mobile Devices
BOSTON, Mass. – October 20, 2014 –Bigtincan, a leader in mobile content enablement, today announced that it has acquired Singapore-based SlideGo, one of the world’s leading provider of content presentation services for the Web and mobile devices. SlideGo’s technology, which enables organizations and individuals to upload and convert presentation slides created in desktop applications into interactive HTML5 content pieces that can then be used on the Web or inside mobile devices, will be integrated into the Bigtincan hub to further revolutionize how people interact and engage with content on mobile devices.
While maintaining the fidelity of content across mobile and desktop environments and having it render correctly, especially in the case of rich media materials like PowerPoint presentations filled with complex animations, is essential to making an impact in sales and service situations, the ability to do so is difficult and complex. A pioneer in the conversion and presentation of content for use on the Web and mobile devices, SlideGo has the market-leading expertise in HTML5 to tackle this challenge. With SlideGo’s technology inside the Bigtincan hub, enterprises can deliver rich media presentation materials to field sales and service teams with the knowledge that any content created on the desktop will retain its fidelity and render correctly on their mobile devices and on the Web.
As a result, marketers can now create new materials that offer an exceptional user experience without the need to create custom apps, engage specialized teams, or force users to proprietary websites with no corporate branding. Additionally, learning institutions can deliver the right interactive learning tools to the right people on any mobile device, while being able to control and measure content utilization. SlideGo will continue to work with leading educational institutions looking for ways to use its technology to power new approaches to learning around mobile and the Web and will maintain SlideGo.com for users looking to experience the power of HTML5.
“We share the vision that Bigtincan has for mobile content and, as we join forces with Bigtincan’s global team, we will be able to create an exciting range of new solutions to improve how users work with content on the Web and mobile devices,” said Hong Nguyen, founder of SlideGo.
Along with the complete integration of SlideGo’s technology, Bigtincan has also added dual screen presentation capabilities to the Bigtincan hub. This new functionality increases the effectiveness of users who need to present on a mobile device.
“After working with SlideGo technology as an OEM partner for more than 18 months, we realized that by joining our teams together, we could build even more exciting solutions and provide an even better service to our enterprise customers who are looking to make their field teams more productive on mobile devices,” said David Keane, Bigtincan CEO. “This acquisition, along with our continued innovation, demonstrates our commitment to providing a complete platform for making every customer interaction count, as opposed to the limited point solutions that are available.”

The company’s innovative mobile content enablement solution, Bigtincan hub, is a unified set of productivity tools that enables users to securely and effectively engage with the right content at the right time in the right location – no matter where the content resides.
