Since 2009, Prezi has been fending off “the big sharks” of the booming world of programming and software development. Providing a unique platform for creating and delivering nonlinear presentations, this young software has become a solid contender being used in the business world for taking an ordinary presentation and turning it into a conceptualized work of art. Here are five companies that have vouched for Prezi’s excellent service.
Prezi Example 1 - Hyatt
Hyatt’s is a very interesting case study. We started with a pilot for a tradeshow where their go-to tool was PowerPoint. The problem with ppts was that in a tradeshow environment agility is key. With our training and hands-on support, they discovered that instead of the embarrassing skipping through slides they could focus on the customer and their questions.
Shortly after the tradeshow Hyatt adopted Prezi across their entire 120 sales people team with incredible results. They report an increase in closed business of 45% and in some cases an incredible shortening of the cycle. Their prospects now get it, faster.
Prezi Example 2 - TED
Branding the slogan “Ideas worth spreading,” TED has been doing just that by taking Prezi on board for its cause. TED “(Technology, Entertainment, Design)”owned by Sapling Foundation “is a group of conferences that use public speakers, renowned personalities” and specialists to spread global awareness about scientific, cultural and academic fields.
TED was brought to life in 1984, initially supporting speakers who were specialized in the fields of Technology, Entertainment and Design. Gradually with an increase in audience, the growth of the community of “TEDsters” led to TED starting up as a small time project in California to a Global movement where now, religious leaders, philosophers, scientists, musicians, and philanthropists come together to change the world of TED.
Figures such as Ken Robinson, Susan Cain, Imran Khan, and many more have all graced the TED stage and have used Prezi to express their thoughts in an attention getting manner.By using Prezi, an ordinary slide show can easily “be”converted into a powerful tool for communication, and that is precisely what TED accomplishes by using all the features Prezi had to offer.
