Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Powerpoint

I created and maintain an hour-long presentation that we use for all new hires in our company. I personally onboard 35-50 new hires a year. I chose this platform because of its ease of use and ability to integrate several media applications for a full sensory experience. This includes high-resolution photos, videos, and audio clips.

Pros

  • Its consistency across all updates.
  • Integration of media
  • Ability to use alongside other programs, like video sharing.

Cons

  • The tool bar has so many options that I don't need.
  • Sometimes moving text around in boxes gets cumbersome
  • Back end of presentation isn't sleek looking
  • Being able to keep our branding in the presentation, by creating templates for our office to use.
  • Ease of use in keeping notes while presenting.
  • Closed caption options for hard of hearing!
  • We have elevated our new hire experience by giving context, adding the why we want you to hear is crucial. This is done in PowerPoint.
  • It's relatively a quick task to get a presentation together. Little training is needed-this means more time doing the connecting and presenting.
I have used the presenter in Apple. I found it to be harder to wrap my head around. I have been so used to PPT that I don't crave any other product. I have been using it for 22 years.

Do you think Microsoft Powerpoint delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Microsoft Powerpoint's feature set?

Yes

Did Microsoft Powerpoint live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Microsoft Powerpoint go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Microsoft Powerpoint again?

Yes

I have been able to use it to provide context in presentations. But when I am needing quick options and don't have time to design slides I have to rely on PDFs and just share screen which isn't always ideal. I also wish that PPt had different slide aspect ratio options.
