Prezi Review

Editors' Review by the Presentations Software Review Team

Prezi is a platform for creative and fun online presentations. It is a cloud-based software that works similarly to Microsoft PowerPoint and other presentation apps. The tool is intended for the academic community, including the students; as well as for businesses and other commercial entities.

Prezi uses an innovative concept for online presentations. For starters, it doesn’t use the same features that other tools utilize. So, it does not have animations, videos and even slides to help users deliver their message.

Prezi presentations turn and pan in different unique directions, fly across the screen and can zoom in and out. As a result, presentations are fun, more creative and dynamic. There are no slides, there’s only a large digital canvas that the presentations are on.

Prezi could be considered as a digital poster or an online concept map that is made up of different parts. To present, all you need to do is zoom in on the parts that you want to discuss or highlight. You can zoom in and zoom out as you wish, depending on which of the details (or modules as they are called in Prezi) you want to present. 

Prezi’s out-of-the-box delivery of presentations makes it easier to generate interest among audiences and help increase understanding and engagement.

Prezi Features

The presentations in Prezi are called Prezis. You can control the details that go with each prezi such as the images and font sizes. There are templates you can choose from so you can personalize each presentation. Also, Prezi comes with a lot of features that you can use to further make your presentations effective.

Three components

There are three major components that help shape the tool: Prezi Present, Prezi Video and Prezi Design. Present is for creating engaging presentations. Video is for creating visuals, recording videos and organizing video conferences. Design is for the creation of professional-looking interactive designs like infographic, charts, maps and reports.

Here are the specific features of Prezi that can help users create better presentations:

Non-linear presentation design

Probably the best feature that Prezi has is its non-linear presentation design approach. It’s unlike any other presentation tool and does a lot of things that slide-based ones are so focused on.

Non-linear means you have the freedom to create prezis the way you want to; you won’t be confined to just one way of delivering your message. Think of Prezi as a 3-dimensional creative canvass compared to the slide-based tool’s 2-dimensional concept.

A non-linear presentation design gives you the chance to improve audience engagement as they’ll be more interested and will be more inclined to start a conversation with you.

There might be cases, however, when you’ll need to choose to go with the logical, linear order for some aspects of your presentation. Prezi allows you to do this, too. There’s a feature that allows you to integrate or join the two together.

Smart structure

Another unique feature is Prezi’s Smart Structure, which is highly intuitive and helps you organize your presentation. Working on your layout and content will be easy because this functionality allows you to use the drag-and-drop feature.

Zoom reveal feature

This particular function is what you’ll use to put the focus on the most critical and valuable details of your message or story. With the zoom feature, it will be easy to zoom in on your central message/s as your presentation unfolds.

PowerPoint converter

If you have presentations that were previously saved on PowerPoint, you won’t have to delete these. You can incorporate these into your prezis and avoid the additional manual work of creating a new presentation from scratch. All you need to do is use the tool’s PowerPoint-to-Prezi converter.

Easy search

With this feature, you won’t have to sort or search through tons of slides just to find that topic or content you need. Prezi’s presentation concept makes it easy for you to navigate through the entire presentation. In a matter of seconds, you’ll be able to pinpoint what you’re looking for. Everything is in a giant digital canvas, all together in just one place.

Templates

Another plus factor for Prezi is the presentation templates that you can easily access and use. So, if you do not want to start from scratch—especially if it’s your first time to use the tool—you can simply choose one of the templates and use it to create your presentation. A few clicks and drags and you’ll be good to go. Templates are created for various purposes and industries.

Reusable presentations

Prezi also allows you to reuse old presentations and these are those that are shared by various users. You can tweak it a little bit to make it fit with your purpose and content.

Videos, charts, images and story blocks

You can embed or upload videos and stunning visuals into your presentation. The videos can even be played directly. Prezi has a vast collection of images that you can choose from. You can also use the advanced image editing function to repurpose and edit your visuals so they’ll follow your theme or concept and branding.

Likewise, you can also use customized charts and graphs. They’ll look impressive and engaging once they’re zoomed. They’ll help you tell your stories easier.

Story blocks, on the other hand, are what you use to build your presentation or story. These are all pre-designed, so all you need to do is drag and drop. Then you can easily customize them to make them your own.

Smart branding

This feature gives you the freedom to customize your presentations so it matches the color or colors of your company. Thus, if your brand has a color theme, your prezis will also be able to adopt that theme. This is perfect for applying continuity in your branding campaign.

Integration 

Prezi integrates with a lot of apps and tools. Some of these are Zoom, GoToMeeting, Google Hangouts (Meet), MS Teams and Webex, among others.

Other important functions and features you can use when on Prezi include ability to embed PDF, social media sharing, custom text box, narration feature,  ability to present on Android phones, Google images access without leaving Prezi and Skype integration.

Prezi Benefits

Prezi presentations are visually pleasing, unique, persuasive and engaging. It’s an innovative concept that a lot of businesses, schools and sales and marketing teams. There are a lot of other benefits and advantages you’ll enjoy once you start using Prezi for your presentations.

Fun and creative presentations

Prezi is unlike other presentation tools because it veers away from the common concept of using slides. As such, it stimulates your creativity because you’ll have more options for creating your digital canvas. As a result, your audience will find your prezis more fun and engaging.

Your creative approach will make audiences feel like they’re watching a cinema-like presentation and that they’re actually a part of it. This is what conversational presentation is about. With fun and engaging presentations, you’ll be able to deliver your stories and messages more effectively and efficiently.

Seamless presentation

As Prezi uses an innovative concept—digital boards instead of slides and quick impacts—and it’s also easy to use, presentations are seamless. Everything is in one place, so there’s no need to use different apps and tools. If you need charts and tables or you want to insert videos or audio, you can do them all on Prezi.

It’s also integrated with several apps and tools. You can even convert your PowerPoint slides so you can use them for your prezis. There are also numerous templates to choose from, even those that have already been used. So even if you’re not yet that familiar with the software—or with anything technical—you won’t have to worry that much. You can simply use the templates.

Prezi is also easy to use and navigate; all you need to do is drag and drop, except for some specific functions.

"Simple, comfortable and in the cloud, it deserves the opportunity"


What do you like about Prezi?

I think the most interesting thing about Prezi is creating projects that are stored directly in the cloud and importing slides from Power Point. It's not a famous software but it has interesting features like linking videos, adding sounds and starting a design with nice templates. It's an easy-to-use platform and I can share projects through an embed code. I like it also because it is free and works to solve many tasks.

What do you dislike about Prezi?

It is not recognized software and sharing it on social networks or websites is not attractive. It is a bit boxed in its design tools and has also given me process errors during its operation.

"Prezi generates confidence to the user."

// Co CEO at E*TRADE

What do you like about Prezi?

I really like Prezi for a variety of things:

- Currently this platform is the only one that gives me a comfort like this, where I can access the platform and do all the slides that I want without any limit.

- The pre-designed templates are excellent, and the presence of these, gives me a facility when making presentations.

- The platform has an exclusive design, according to an excellent comfort that the user has.

- Prezi has a built-in desktop platform, which at a certain point improves the user experience and makes presentations easier to view and transfer.

What do you dislike about Prezi?

There are very basic things that I do not like about Prezi at the moment, and that, nevertheless, are factors that do not affect the user so much. These things are:

- Very high prices. High costs are those that keep people from trying the fantastic features that Prezi offers, for which I would like prices to be lowered.

- A bad technical support. This support to the user does not have the necessary experience to answer any questions.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Prezi solve?

Prezi pleases me at all, has been a platform that has always been providing me the best benefits with respect to the presentations or slides that I have to elaborate. Prezi is making a positive radical change in my company, providing some very good quality slide.
