Calling All ActivePresentation Designer Users

Since we launched ActivePresentation Designer a few years ago, we’ve been listening to your requests. We’re getting close to launching a completely new version called ActivePrez and it’s been redesigned from the ground up. ActivePrez will focus solely on the Menu Bar feature which is what the majority of our customers use the most.

We’re now looking for folks interested in evaluating the beta version of the new product and are accepting requests to join the program at the end of this post.
