Overall Satisfaction with Prezi

I've used it to present the implementation of a new project to my project team and department heads. The business problem being addressed is communication of information to internal customers.
  • Open canvas - this is a strength because you aren't restricted to slides. Scales well.
  • Zooming - you can zoom in on images to reveal more details. Or zoom out to reveal an overview. It makes presentations follow a better logical flow of thought.
  • Easy to edit: you can easily manipulate information and objects by clicking and dragging.
  • Auto sizing of images - it would be easier if Prezi could auto re-size images that are too large instead of being forced to edit them in Photoshop or Paint.
  • Deleting frames - now when deleting frames, everything inside the frame gets deleted. It was not like this in the past. If we want to re-frame something, it's difficult to do since everything inside the frame is tied to the frame.
  • Fonts - we're restricted to prezi fonts. It'd be nice to be able to use generally accepted HTML/CSS fonts as well.
  • You could probably argue that the nicely made prezi template I used helped get a project approved.
  • This may be able to save money on more expensive software for creation of marketing materials.
  • It would be redundant to get an enterprise license for Prezi since we already have Microsoft enterprise license (PowerPoint). We wouldn't pay for extra presentation software when PowerPoint is adequate and widely used.
  • PowerPoint
Prezi is a different way of thinking about presentations. Instead of points and slides and a very linear approach, you can be more organic in terms of how a thought process really is like. For example, you can show an overview diagram of 3 different parts and then zoom into each part.
It's well suited for general presentations where not much text is needed. It's not appropriate for situations where internet access is slow or unavailable.
