The best case scenario for Apple Keynote is that you get it built-in with any MacBook, so you don't have to download anything and you're good to go for any sort of presentation. One more thing which I really admire about Keynote is that it has really cool animation style, You can literally create some basic video content using Keynote. Animations are also very easy to use, so If you want to have more animations you can just use Keynote instead of Powerpoint. Keynote has never been less appropriate until you have Windows as your Operating System. Another time where Powerpoint takes an edge is when you have to use a lot of features.

Saleo is well suited for SaaS businesses who want their SolCon and Sales teams to demo out of a real production account, not a fake one. With Saleo our commercial sales team can easily select an Industry template and go...literally no prep to show the product with industry data. Our SolCon team can build out a custom demo with the customer's data in a few minutes. There is also a sharing feature, so if someone built something cool they can share it with everyone. Also, our product marketing team has started using it for screenshots and videos.

Cons
Apple
  • The way you adjust timings for builds and transitions was a bit counterintuitive for me. Once I got the hang of it, it was fine. The timings don't work the same as they do in PowerPoint. So if you are a PowerPoint user, that may be something you have to adjust to when you switch to Keynote.
  • I feel that adding images can be clunky when working with image placeholders. Apple Keynote forces you to use the Photo app to replace image placeholders.

  • When we first rolled out, it was hard to changing a data point in multiple places quickly. This was just fixed by the roll out of personalization strings.
  • We have very complex tables. At first the table editor needed some help handling the nesting. The newest release of Saleo fixed the issue we had.

While I don't use Keynote for every slide deck project need (software preference often is dictated by what the client has access to), I will promote KeyNote as the preferred format if the client is software-agnostic. The drag and drop feature is incomparable with other software options — a feature I've come to love and miss when I am required to use another program. As previously mentioned, the smooth interface and master template user-friendliness also helps raise Keynote above their competition.

Our CRO did not like using video recordings. He felt that would backfire on us. Our CTO would not allow us to make a copy of our application or it's data, so most of these solutions were eliminated. Saleo is the only solution that lets you demo out of a production account with no videos or copies of your data
