Prezi Unveils New Product Design for the Idea Economy

Delivering Design That Matters, Prezi Zooms Past 15 Million Users & Into the Enterprise

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 30, 2012) - Prezi, the zooming presentation software that has liberated the world from boring, static presentations, today unveiled redesigned user interface (UI) and a sleek new website. The new UI, enhanced by professionally designed presentation templates, makes it even easier to develop and share big ideas through beautiful, engaging, and memorable presentations. Fueled by a demand for big ideas and visual storytelling, Prezi has surpassed the 15 million-user mark and has been adopted by over 75 percent of the Fortune 100 companies.

"We are seeing a boom in the idea economy where businesses are placing a premium on ideas that matter and will have a big impact. There has been a lot of talk about the consumerization of the enterprise, but the next phase is even more significant: the creativization of the enterprise -- where ideas are king," said Prezi CEO, Peter Arvai. "Developing and sharing ideas in meaningful and memorable ways is what Prezi is all about, and this redesign opens up our powerful platform to everyone."

Prezi's enhanced UI is based on principles of design thinking and was developed through months of research and testing. The result is a simple, intuitive experience and the ability to create captivating presentations quickly and easily. Prezi is also launching new presentation templates created by professional designers and communications experts. These templates use visual and structural metaphors that are relevant to a variety of presentation scenarios. Together, the new UI and templates facilitate the creation of well-designed and attention-grabbing presentations in just a few clicks.

Designed by architect and visual artist Adam Somlai-Fischer, Prezi reinvents the traditional presentation with a virtual whiteboard that enables presenters to explore, develop, and tell their stories in a way that resonates with audiences. Research has shown that memory retention improves when ideas are ordered spatially and associated with physical locations.* Prezi's design and new presentation templates incorporate this powerful memory-enhancing approach.

"Big thinking can come from small sources. My 14-year-old daughter introduced me to Prezi and I immediately saw the potential to help our company communicate ideas internally and with partners and customers," said Andy Barrons, vice president and chief marketing officer at Navis, a maritime technology company responsible for managing the movement of cargo through terminals. "Now, in a market crowded with information and competing ideas, Prezi helps our internal team collaborate and our sales team stand out."
