Microsoft PowerPoint has been used for ages to produce feature-rich presentations for businesses and classroom audiences. Presentations made using PowerPoint – a key program of the Microsoft Office suit – usually promote engagement and involvement in many settings. However, like other MS Office programs, PowerPoint files usually lack extensive cross-platform compatibility and are also prone to security issues.

As such, it is used by millions of users to share and store information every day across different software platforms and hardware devices.
