TOP CUSTOMER REQUEST

“The response to our mobile-first presentation tool has been overwhelming. Though hundreds of thousands have embraced Haiku Deck in the past year, our #1 customer request was from users who want a way to create beautiful presentations when they’re working at a traditional computer,” said Adam Tratt, co-founder and CEO of Haiku Deck. “Delivering a browser-based version of Haiku Deck allows people to tell awesome stories and share their ideas no matter what technology is available to them.”

THOUSANDS OF PRIVATE BETA SIGNUPS

And since the company began collecting signups for its Web App private beta earlier this year, thousands of people have joined the waitlist, citing reasons such as these:

“Looking to make interactive web presentations.”
“PPT fails to engage people.”
“To innovate how I present!”
“To make abstract concepts visually engaging and fun.”
“PPT takes forever. I hear Haiku Deck is simple.”
“I want presentation alternatives for my company.”
“I am a teacher who wants more than PowerPoint.”
“To be able to share ideas in a fun and creative way.”

PRODUCTIVITY HAS CHANGED." ADAM TRATT, CEO

"WE'RE FOCUSED ON THE WAYS
“There’s been quite a bit of anticipation and speculation about what traditional tools like Microsoft Office will look like when they arrive on a tablet, but we’re focused on the ways productivity has changed in the context of mobile devices, the cloud, and how people work, create, and communicate today,” said Tratt. “The response has been amazing, and we’re thrilled to introduce Haiku Deck to an even broader audience through our Web App.”
