Pros: Plays videos offline which is helpful if you are presenting in places with bad connections or the office isn't helpful getting you setup

Cons: The interface doesn't work the same as finder or windows. Recently added search function do that helps. If you have tons of presentations and media, you have to be very organized or it will get out of hand.

I believe that customshow is the best reason I left PowerPoint behind.

Pros: I like the elements of incorporating video and how easy it is easy to share presentations with others.

Cons: I don't like that there are errors or how you can not import the entire presentation into PowerPoint without it being flat.

Pros: Love that multiple users can work on the same presentation at the same time. It is also a great feature that we are able to track when users view our presentations (when we require email entry to open the presentation) and to be able to host a meeting for other users to see.

Cons: There seems to be some limitations in how to format some transitions. There also was a learning curve to use some of the features.

Pros: The ability to create and utilize dynamic presentations, and being able to track who sees it and how often was a major plus.

Cons: Converting a sales staff set in their ways on PowerPoint was and is an ongoing challenge. Mainly because the updates are not as quick as in PPT.

Overall: Fantastic support, and creative direction - powerful presentation decks.

I use CustomShow on a daily basis at work - it is our primary presentation sharing software.

Pros: The fact that it is web-based makes it SO easy to share and update without having to "save as." I love that multiple people can work on a project at once.

Cons: When we present files with large images, it bogs down the speed of slide changes. I would love if the optimal image size/resolution was readily available, and if the software gave you some kind of warning if the file was too large.

Overall: Easy file sharing!

Pros: love the ability to input videos and the payback is very clear. Also, enjoy the cloud based program.

Cons: design features - not being able to group items, and color swatches are difficult. Would love the ability to add images to shapes

Best platform for presentations. They look much more professional than PowerPoint.

Pros: Easily share presentations with coworkers or clients. When you change something in your library, all of your linked slides are automatically updated. Easily import videos & images.

Cons: There needs to be a search function. We have an extensive library and things are easily lost, making it difficult to sort through. It's a great software, but this has been a big problem in the past.

Overall: Easy to collaborate with coworkers

Pros: I like all the capabilities the software has to offer. When presenting I know that my presentation is going to stand out made by customshow.

Cons: I find it difficult to use and not user friendly. I find a lot of co workers using Powerpoint instead because it is easier to use.

We use it for pitch decks, which our clients find impressive.

Pros: The video aspect of the presentations. Also that you can see when people view your presentations. Those are the top two.

Cons: I find it difficult to use, specifically saving presentations. Also implementing images and where they are saved throws me off at times.

Pros: I like the fact how its easy to customize elements, and add video. The creation of presentations are seamless.

Cons: Sometimes it will crash unexpectedly, also there needs to be an export text option for transferring a presentation to a powerpoint.

Overall: I get the benefit of creating beautiful presentations and sharing them with other owners and sharing slideshow links without sending the entire presentation.

Pros: CustomShow provides me the ability to really be creative with my presentations. The content really jumps off the page with the use of video background and images. The option to shadow images giving them more dimension is great. The webinar feature is very nice. I also like the ability to not have to be online to give a presentation but also be able to share them so people can flip through them at the leisure. It really provides all the options I need!

Cons: I do not like that the software uses adobe flash but was thrilled to see that you are upgrading to HTML5 this year!

Overall: Powerpoint is so flat. Customshow really makes my presentations come alive and speak to my audience.

Pros: It wows the audience during presentations. I trust that my videos will always play. I can easily set up templates for other people in my organization to use. The library tool is fantastic. Customer service has gone above and beyond to help me. It is the only web service that has been able to do streaming video well during a webinar.

Overall, love CustomShow. Has created a seamless cloud-based solution to manage marketing materials.

Pros: The team-work abilities with presentations & sharing. Also the Marketing control with the library slides.

Cons: Some seemingly - obvious features are missing: a search function within the library, inability to open links via mobile, some editing features from adobe products, etc.

Overall: Enhanced teamwork, cloud-based solutions, library of marketing materials, easy management of changing to materials that is trickled down.

Comments: I use CustomShow within our organization. It's great for collaboration and sharing and metrics. But most importantly, the presentations we create for our sales team is better than powerpoint, and some of the other players.

Must Have Presentation Software For Any B2B Company

Mar 24, 2015
5/5
Overall

Comments: If you're a B2B company looking to standout and utilize features that extend far beyond your typical powerpoint presentation, CustomShow is the way to go. We've been using the software for several years and it has saved us time, better positions us to win more pitches, and served as a great connection point for all of our branded assets. The price may have you think twice about it, but when you're in a marketing role, allocating a budget to the pitch stage of your company is just as important as the money invested in marketing. For us, the value we've gotten far outweighs the costs.

Pros: - Cloud Based Presentation Software - Present from multiple platforms (tablet, desktop, mobile) - Conduct dynamic web meetings - Great for storing branding assets anyone with access to get to - Built in library - Real time collaboration - Video Incorporation - Import Old Powerpoint and turn into beautiful presentations - Analytics and Tracking

Cons: - They do have analytics and tracking but it could be a little more robust.
