Overall Satisfaction with Prezi

We use Prezi to train at our large, company-wide events as well for smaller, soft-skills-based training. It allows us to make visually impressive pieces of training that stand out against the usual PowerPoint (or even Keynote). It is exclusively used by the Training Department on various devices (iPad Pro, MacBook Pro, and PC/laptops).
  • It provides moment that helps highlight ideas and draw them together.
  • it's intuitive and whether you start with a blank presentation or use a template it always adds pop to any presentation or training.
  • Since it's cloud-based, you can start a presentation on a desktop, move it to at tablet - continue to edit it and then use run it from your phone via airplay.
  • The price - It's a fantastic tool if you have the budget for it, but the fact that it is more than Microsoft Office is a bit extreme.
  • The ability to import fonts would be really helpful, especially with branding.
  • It would be nice if you had the option to purchase it outright in addition to the subscription model.
  • When highlighting data or points, it's extremely powerful - one of my courses on Conflict Resolution really benefits from the use of movement to hone in on key ideas.
  • The time investment to create a "good" Prezi is key, you really have to be committed to doing the pre-work to make something that is memorable and remarkable.
  • All things being said, it's easy to use, but the learning curve is more challenging than something like PowerPoint or Keynote.
The key features of Prezi are powerful for presenting. When compared to PowerPoint in Microsoft Office 365 they achieve the same goal but in different ways. Prezi focusses on movement to tie things together whereas PowerPoint is more linear. Consequently, for the beginner, PowerPoint is the clear winner - it's easy to sue and easier to edit and move things around. The end result, though, can be much more powerful when you use a Prezi because it's more engaging than a simpler PowerPoint.
I've only had to reach out to PowerPoint occasionally. And, each time they've been responsive and professional. The great thing about Prezi is that it "just works" - very rarely will you need support. Plus, they are constantly adding features and additonal options for how to present and how to structure what you are presenting.

If you have the time to really map out your presentation and/or training you can create a Prezi that supports your material (vs. being the crutch that PowerPoint can sometimes become). It allows you to make points and emphasize key areas via movement which is something that, really, no other competitor can match. If you want to put something quickly together, Prezi isn't the answer - because of the way everything is connected you really need to map out your ideas in order to create an effective presentation or use it as support material.
