iMTS PPT Plug-in Tutorial

iMTS PPT Plug-in

The PPT Plug-in provides the ability to readily export existing PowerPoint slides into a format that is recognized by the iMTS Utility.

Exporting existing slides from PowerPoint allows the end-user to leverage existing training and educational material.
