think-cell is a software plug-in that integrates with Microsoft PowerPoint and Excel to allow users to create complex charts, such as Marimekko, Gantt, and waterfall charts. It is easy to use and the outputs are visually appealing. It can link to an Excel spreadsheet to automatically update the charts with new data; provide additional information, such as calculating growth rates; and show numbers in the format that you want (e.g. millions, billions) without manually editing them.
think-cell provides the software for free to academic and non-profit organizations through their Academic/Nonprofit Partners Program.
