Once you get things working, it works pretty well. The ability to send a link that is browser and platform-agnostic to a client (no firewall issues) to deliver a rich-media presentation inclusive of full-screen video playback is essential to our business. Having to send the deck itself is prohibitive due to the extremely large file sizes for embedded video.
Also, the email links and view reports are slick.
The no-access-code conference call numbers are a godsend, especially for clients on cell phones. Just click and you're on the call. No fumbling with pass codes.
400MB file size limit. If we exceed it, we have to break the deck into smaller pieces, upload separately, then recombine them. This is a major pain. We are storing massive amounts of content on your site. You should be able to handle a larger file.
Conversion times are long (especially for rich media) and even when it tells you it's done, it's not necessarily done. So you have to double check by manually playing every video in your deck to confirm it works. Very time consuming.
The conversion process is quite buggy and results in all sorts of image anomalies. We have had numerous go-rounds with tech support on all of this.
There is no folder structure for organizing content. Tagging isn't sufficient. We should be able to build sub-folders to store decks.
There is no feature to edit a slide's contents once uploaded. If you notice a quick typo or want to customize a slide to a client, you have to do it all offline, re-upload the slide, then import it into the deck and replace the slide you don't want. Time consuming and painful.
Bugs still present during live pitch when playing videos full screen. If you return to the slide after playing the video, the video auto-plays. You can't just look at the slide again, or choose a different video.
Really miss the SlideRocket on-screen drag and drop functionality to see multiple decks horizontally and just grab slides from various decks to build a new one. That was gold. You own these guys - please implement the good stuff!!
Delivering video-enabled decks seamlessly and with an easy client experience. Again, once you get it working, it does this very well.
