Very great for providing impressive, attractive presentations that fight the boring Powerpoint stigma and can present your information in a new and exciting way with little work. Also great to be able to share the presentation with viewers so they can access later. Overall, Prezi is a great value and efficient tool.

When you have to present complex hierarchical structures, and if your audience would require navigation in and out of the hierarchy, then Prezi is a good candidate for you. But be prepared, Prezi is not as intuitive as a standard presentation tool, and it may take some time to get used to.

Prezi is totally recommended for those situations in which you must present data and information of any kind to the public since it allows not only to add writing, but also to use images, videos, audio, graphics, and many other things. So, if you want to give a more dynamic and innovative touch to your old presentations you should use Prezi. But if what you need is to add a lot of information you must be careful because Prezi can be a bit confusing at the moment of having to add a lot of data.

I have used Prezi for making presentations related to my research topics and personal things, such as family collages. It provides a very fresh way of presenting your work with a style that is not supported by many current presentation software offerings. It provides new creative ways of giving presentations which can be easily shared with people. The only area it is not suited for is where formal presentations need to be made. This is because people could feel dizzy because of the zooming and the panning of the presentation as everything is just located in one big slide.

I believe Prezi is well suited when an author wants to create a more compelling presentation. It is also most useful when using it to explain processes, flows, and/or other visual elements. From another perspective, when it is necessary to create something more quickly, Prezi may not be the right solution, when compared to PowerPoint, for example. There are nice templates, but the creation process may not be so fast and simple.

  • Prezi is a great platform to explain complex topics and to break the traditional two-dimensional aspect of a slide deck.
  • Its cost is relatively affordable and the platform is stable and the web-based version works reasonable well.
  • Unfortunately there is zero Linux support and you are stuck using Google Chrome.
  • No native Linux app is another downside for those technologically-savvy or people who want to use a GNU-licensed operating system.
  • The Android app is very limited.
  • They have added a premium layer to the basic paid Prezi platform. I understand their pursuit of profit but...

Prezi is well suited to presentations with many images, particularly those where it is useful to zoom into those images. It is also good for showing the alternate path and multiple choices in presentations. It is less appropriate for predominantly textual content, particularly, if this content follows a sequential order. Prezi benefits from an extra care in organizing visual elements and selecting meaningful images and, as such, requires a bit more effort than a typical slideshow application.

Prezi is well suited for students as well as businesses. It just depends on the amount of creativity that should go into that particular presentation. The program can really take a mainstream presentation and make it extraordinary. It is also useful how it gives you a basic instruction manual / video on how to create your very own Prezi.

They should allow users to utilize this extraordinary program without having to be web-based: this would encourage its utilization and furthermore would give more joy in the market, since it would pull in numerous individuals looking to acquire administrators for the application.

Prezi is well suited for a sales presentation that is to be used to create audience engagement. It is a unique experience for the audience and really takes them on a visual journey.... especially if you use the tool in a way that creates a lot of movement. I wouldn't say it is very well suited for a presentation that needs to be edited frequently or if items need to be copied outside of the Prezi environment such as PowerPoint or Word. That is mostly because it's a web-based solution.

If you are looking to impress your boss(es) or potential prospects and clients, then Prezi is the right tool for you, as long as you have enough time to actually sit down, design and execute.

If you are on a tight timeline and are expected to deliver your presentation within 24 hours, then PowerPoint would be a more suitable option. In the most recent addition, Microsoft added a new transition between slides on PowerPoint that can mimic the basic transition in Prezi. We experimented with it and found out we can replicate some of the basic animations we used to produce in Prezi, so for tighter deadlines we normally choose PowerPoint and utilize the morph transition to have a pretty yet simple presentation while still making our deadlines.

Prezi is especially good for pre-departure orientations that don't change much year to year. It's easy to go in and make quick changes. Prezi is harder to use when you're collaborating with people for a presentation-- multiple people working in Prezi at once can make a mess.

Prezi is GREAT for showing off work in a creative, different and exciting way. It is the perfect tool for creative and outgoing clients, however, I have found PowerPoint to be a better fit for more "buttoned up" clients.

Prezi is great for a school or higher education presentation. The different elements of its experience are great for presentations on specific subjects. However, I would not use Prezi in a formal business setting as the content is more casual and harder to format. In my opinion, it's not as professional (or widely used) as some alternatives.

The tool is very easy to use and engaging to view, however, I am not familiar with a way to gain business analytics out of presentations viewed. For instance, LinkedIn Pointdrive enables me to send presentations to customers and be alerted of views, time spent on particular assets and other insights into how customers are viewing what I am sending to them. That sort of data is extremely beneficial.

If you are a user who often takes care of making company presentations or if you are commercial and you often have to go to present different products or different infrastructures, this is definitely the right software because it combines the simplicity of development with incredible impact without limits.

It is most appropriate for marketing to customers and increasing engagement. It is least appropriate when a simple presentation without creativity is justified.

Try this application if creativity is important in your presentations, originality, non-standart approach, wow effect.
Prezi divides the audience into two three camps: "Wow, what kind of software is this?", "Can you stop this from continuing ...?" And, finally, "Oh, that's f*ing Prezi!!!". Perhaps the first will be the majority. Against the backdrop of PowerPoint, you will definitely stand out and remember. Anything is better than PowerPoint. But you know that it is necessary to stand out with the mind. It seems to me that Prezi is pure show-off. For example, look: presentation of Chris Anderson. Yes, it's not bad. Was it possible to get by here Keynote? Yes, it's not a question. PowerPoint? Mmm ... then I'm not so sure, but what's with him, Keynote or what?

To date, it does not feel as professional as some of the competitors. For instance, I use Prezi in my undergraduate classroom but not in my graduate classroom. That said, I have used it for research presentations at conferences and the audience always enjoys it. It's a nice change of pace from the status quo - but again, must be done well, with consideration for the viewers.

My organization does a lot of webinar training and virtual programming. Prezi, as a cloud-based presentation software, allows us to take our content anywhere, but it can take additional bandwidth to get it to run in conjunction with a video conferencing software. Many of our trainings and orientations take place in countries that have intermittent Internet access - it would be great to have an easy way to package the Prezi and send it to our participants for view at a later date without the need of an Internet connection. We are also required to ensure that all of our materials are 508 compliant. If accessibility options were coded into the platform itself (text to speech, screen enhancement, etc) it would help us more easily meet that compliance requirement.

I personally have taught professors and students at a college level how to use it and when it is appropriate. I have run multiple workshops on this topic.
I think the number one thing is to know the audience. When I worked at a university they were much more open and would not get hung up on the tool I used, if anything they were impressed. Now I work in the insurance industry and WOW are they old school. I would attempt to use a Prezi and they just got too distracted that they couldn't focus on my content. And I pride myself in not doing too much of a drastic zoom and not to jump too much but even just a little zoom or jump was difficult. I have used Prezi for documentation such as an organizational chart so that you can go up and down quickly. I think if Prezi bumped up their strength in building an interactive process it would open a market. Don't be so linear. Instead, provide the opportunity to click around and discover the presentation. Such as a map of a university, then they click on icons and it brings them zooming in and out. I think the point and click would be amazing.

Prezi is perfect for meetings of all sorts. I use it for monthly staff meetings to guide employees toward the agency goals. The format is perfect for a meeting that flows from the current situation through to the stakeholder's end vision. Prezi is also really nice for training presentations. Incorporated pictures and videos, combined with the Prezi format, makes for a dynamic presentation.

About Prezi

Prezi’s advantage over static slides is that its interactive, zoomable canvas shows the relationship between the big picture and the fine details. The vendor’s value proposition is that this puts ideas in context, and makes them more likely to resonate, motivate, and be remembered.
