Overall Satisfaction

CustomShow is a business presentation software used by enterprise level organizations that are 50 or more employees. It cannot be used on a one-off basis but is best in companies with marketing and sales departments that need to collaborate on various projects. The software provides, custom based presentation, cloud-based, branding, great with video, sharing capabilities, can be delivered on multiple devices as well as offline and online, and provides analytics and information on the success of certain presentations created by the sales team. The software is lock step with other packages including Prezi, Clearslide (SlideRocket), Haiku Deck, and the other major presentation software providers.
  • It allows you collaborate and share across your organization.
  • It integrates video seamlessly into any presentation you create.
  • It have an incredible slide library management component that stores everything in the cloud for the users.
  • Used by major fortune 100 companies, it allows for organizations to present their best and look their best.
  • I think the analytics piece could be improved a little more.
  • It has had a positive ROI in that the level of productivity in creating presentations has grown.
  • Powerpoint,Prezi
I think they are all stacking up against each other. Powerpoint is a free alternative. But I think CustomShow doesn't focus on better looking powerpoint slides....it focuses on better looking presentations period. Because of that, CustomShow is really in a different category of business presentation software and up there with Clearslide.
Because it provides a great user experience, it makes my organization look good in front of pitches, and the software is great from a collaboration perspective. Plus, I like the fact that i can use video incredible well with all of my presentations. It has minor challenges and takes time to figure out, but once you do the sky is the limit.
It is well suited for larger organizations. It cannot be used by single individuals like people who use Prezi or Powerpoint. If you are a large organization and looking to save on productivity, time, and improve branding across marketing and sales pitches, this software is absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend anyone heading up a company with 25 employees or more consider the software.
