SEB is one of Scandinavia’s largest banks with over 15,000 employees that serve millions of customers globally. SEB produce thousands of presentations and documents daily for various purposes and business areas, ranging from insurance to wealth management.
Financial presentations are especially important routine documents that SEB produce to show rating companies how SEB operate.
Visual Communicator in SEB Investor Relations, Lars Emanuelsson, uses his 20 years of experience as a PowerPoint consultant to format useful, on-brand corporate presentation templates.
While SEB had optimized its template content, this content was proving difficult to distribute and update due to SEB’s existing on-premise template management system.
The IT team had to install these templates on every individual computer, where they then resided in local profile folders.
Lars remembers that, “It was very tricky to update or remove our on-premise templates and it was difficult to have people use the correct colors, fonts etc. in presentations and documents. People were going rogue and searching the internet for photos instead of using the approved images our brand team spent a lot of time creating.”
