Overall Satisfaction with Prezi

The use of Prezi is not regulated by the institution, however, there are several people who used Prezi constantly when making different presentations. I even used it a couple of times when taking some classes at engineering school.
The choice of Prezi is because its format is much more pleasant to me than the typical PowerPoint, and being more dynamic also makes presentations less boring, especially when you are showing data and percentages.
  • Unlike PowerPoint, Prezi is very dynamic. You can move around the entire presentation, jumping from one place to another, entering images, moving the background, making turns, etc. And if you add some music and colors to that, you have almost a 3d presentation.
  • It has the advantage of having a free version and a paid version, so if you don't know Prezi, and you want to know what it is about, you can use the paid version and see if this way of making presentations suits you and is interesting, without having than to spend a single peso.
  • Likewise, the idea of ​​having the free version is very good for students, since not everyone has the possibility to buy, and a free version is better than a pirated version of a similar program.
  • Although it seems very complicated at the beginning, when you start using it it becomes quite easy, and you realize that its use in general and its environment are very pleasant. Everything is well indicated, so you know what function each thing fulfills.
  • I think a good improvement would be the possibility that the free version (I use paid), could also work offline, so it would be more accessible to everyone.
  • Greater variation of templates, or thematic templates could be an excellent idea and with that it would save a lot of work time.
  • The PPT to Prezi function, it doesn't really convince me, it never suits me very well.
  • The impact with Prezi is not directed to the commercial sphere, but rather to the work and meeting environment, which can be a little less boring, using "more modern" technologies than PowerPoint.
  • As a negative point, to make a perfect presentation you must occupy more time than you would use in PowerPoint, which distracts you from other functions that you must perform daily.
In particular, visually I like Prezi much more, because it is more dynamic and modern. PowerPoint, being so linear, often makes it very boring to watch. And while PPT has some advantages, such as simplicity, that everyone knows about it and that you can transform your files into other formats, Prezi has the advantage of being visually striking and perhaps even more configurable, which at the end of the day, makes it worth spending a little more time on Prezi and getting just what you want others to see.
I've never had to use Prezi customer service, but I imagine it must work fine.
The truth is that everyone is very clear on their website, which is why, I think that customer service should not be widely used by users.

Do you think Prezi delivers good value for the price?

Did Prezi live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Prezi go as expected?


Would you buy Prezi again?


Prezi is quite appropriate if you are in a dynamic and perhaps not as formal environment. Also if you want to get more out of your presentations, and make them less boring, Prezi is definitely the solution. It is also quite useful when you have to do some classes, since the PowerPoint tend to be linear, boring and with sad colors, however with Prezi you can give a new look to very boring content.
It seems to me that the least appropriate scenario for Prezi is when you have little time to make a presentation, since although its use is relatively easy and comfortable, you should dedicate a little more time so that everything is within the margins and that the movements within space are not so erratic and disorienting.
