There really aren't any new features for PowerPoint-only users in SharePoint 2013. PowerPoint itself has some amazing, new features. But what we'll be doing in SharePoint is simply saving documents, so that we can collaborate on them or manage them or version them. So, if we're here in SharePoint and we want to upload a document from PowerPoint we know we can do that. We can also save our PowerPoint presentation directly to SharePoint, simply by choosing File > Save As and selecting the SharePoint site where we'd like to be able to save the file or we can click Browse, of course. And if we haven't saved anything here yet we can go ahead and say well, we'd like to save it here and we'd like to call this our December update. By saving this on our SharePoint site we can collaborate with lots of other users who'd like to either co-author this with us or who'd like to be able to use this later on.
You might consider in your organization creating one library for all PowerPoint presentations that have reusability. One of the things I think people struggle with is where they can find the PowerPoint presentations that they want to use. So, don't be afraid if your team creates a lot of different PowerPoint presentations. Don't be afraid to create a custom document library to house them. The reason I suggest a separate document library is that there's metadata that you might consider adding to be able to track information from PowerPoint presentations.
For example, what's the scope of the presentation? Is it something that anyone in your organization could use? Or is it specific to the eastern sales team? Or the manufacturing team? Are there specific slides that folks might want to focus on and you might also want to make sure you create space for key words. When people are looking for slides that they can reuse then it makes it easier for them to find them in Microsoft SharePoint.
