For sales teams, onboarding teams, and marketing teams alike, one thing is true: Presentations set the stage for success. But building the perfect presentation can be tricky.
With teams scattered across different states and countries, finding ways to collaborate efficiently without losing the all-important human touch can be a real stumbling block. This is where document presentation platforms are shining the light.
By enabling teams to level up the standard slide deck and deliver presentations that are interactive and impactful, these platforms are helping coworkers stay connected—even in new remote or hybrid work environments.
Two top-tier presentation platforms are Keynote and AirDeck. Read on to learn more about each platform and determine which is the best fit for your team.
Keynote is slideshow presentation software that puts important tools front and center so teams can add charts, edit photos, and incorporate cinematic effects. Included with most Apple devices, Keynote works seamlessly across iPhones, iPads, and Macs so users can work on and view presentations from any Apple device. Users can also work on presentations that are stored on iCloud or Box using a PC. When working on an iPad, Apple Pencil can be leveraged to add color, illustrations, and handwritten comments to presentations.
New Keynote updates for Mac make an effort to deliver a better experience over video conferences. For example, users can play a slideshow in a separate window so they can access other apps while they present. Meanwhile, videos and movies can be played continuously across slides.
Keynote is free for Apple users. For non-Apple users, they can work with Keynote if someone shares a Keynote presentation with them, but they cannot create a Keynote presentation from scratch on their own.
AirDeck is a document narration platform that empowers enterprise sales, onboarding, and marketing teams to deliver personalized presentations at scale. But as a powerful, all-in-one solution, AirDeck does more than just enable teams to create and share presentations.
With premium audio and video capabilities at their fingertips, teams can leverage AirDeck to effortlessly add audio and/or video narration to any document or presentation. By overlaying audio and/or video narration on any of the 200+ file formats it supports (including Keynote), AirDeck lets teams turn their basic content into dynamic, engaging presentations that speak for themselves.
After creation, users can easily send their presentations to clients, customers, or team members by sharing a unique, password-protected tracking link. With this link, AirDeck users can then gain access to slide-by-slide analytics to track every second of every view in real-time. By delivering this powerful data, AirDeck unlocks the secrets of viewer engagement and activity so teams can not just deliver knock-out presentations but learn from them too.
AirDeck turns standard presentations into living, breathing content that both wows audiences and drives real results.
