Prezi, the visual presentation platform that helps people connect more powerfully with their audiences, announced today the availability of Prezi Next, its new and most powerful platform yet. Designed with insight and feedback from Prezi’s 85 million users, Prezi Next is the only full life cycle presentation platform on the market that allows users to create, present, and analyze their presentations.
Prezi Next was designed for customers in a wide range of industries, including education, nonprofit, business, media, and government. It builds on the storytelling elements of Prezi’s original product by incorporating a more flexible, intuitive editor with customizable designer templates, which help users more easily create visually stunning presentations. Prezi Next scales from the individual user up to large business teams, all in a single powerful platform.
Its interactive format lets presenters move freely between topics and adapt on the fly, without having to flip through slides. Through this approach, called “conversational presenting,” presenters can focus on what interests their audiences most, a method that is proven to be more engaging and effective.
Prezi Next also adds the option of full-lifecycle tools like analytics for everyone — a feature previously only available to teams — which allows users to track progress with their audiences all the way through the funnel, and refine their presentations based on real-time data.
“We built Prezi Next from the ground up with insight from our 85 million users, and we’re incredibly proud to see it transforming their presentations from a typical ‘one-way’ dialogue to an interactive conversation that supports immersive storytelling,” said Peter Arvai, CEO and co-founder of Prezi. “Prezi Next also sets the foundation for us to adopt, support, and implement emerging and future technologies, such as the augmented reality preview that we are sharing at TED 2017.”
“Since using Prezi Next, we’ve had record sales that we haven’t seen before,” said Jamie Gomez, marketing manager at ViewSat. ViewSat provides a comprehensive range of free-to-air satellite and transmission services for broadcasters of every size across the globe. “Conversational presenting gives us an edge by allowing us to take an educational stance. Now we split the content into different parts and ask prospects what they want to learn about. They appreciate the interactivity, ask questions, and respond much better.”
“There’s nothing better than a high-impact presentation to strengthen, promote, or build a brand. With Prezi Next, we have the visual support needed to engage our prospects and keep them engaged,” said Abel Antonio Martinez Carrillo, Planning and Business Development, Chupa Chups. Chupa Chups is the popular Spanish brand of confectioneries sold in over 150 countries worldwide.
