First we delivered Alacra Books (Public Information Books) to investment banks as PDF files.  These “books” contained information on a company (news, SEC filings, investment research, executive bios, earnings estimates, etc.) from disparate sources.  We took a time-consuming, manual process and automated it.  We then had requests to create a Microsoft Word version so that internal documents could more readily be added and the document as a whole could be more easily edited.  Most recently we’ve had a number of customers ask us if we could create an Alacra Book equivalent in Microsoft PowerPoint.  These customers frequently create PowerPoint slides containing the same bits of company-specific information.  So we have this figured out now.  It works really well and many firms are finding this application to be a useful tool as part of their pitchbook process.  Here’s a sample.
