What do you like best?
Templates, I like templates best. It is very hard to combine the right fonts, sizes, colors, page design, etc. to create an interesting and creative presentation. They look very professional when finished. I really love that I can publish them as an E-document. THAT alone is SO great. My prospects and clients can download a PDF on their end if they want and we don't have to worry about sending with an intermediary like wetransfer or dropbox. I am in sales, so the easier it is the better. Without an internal marketing team to create knockout presentations for us, we have to create it ourselves. I have purchased powerpoint designs in the past but this is just SO much better and so easy. We have totally up'd our image - what we do is really shining through in each presentation.
What do you dislike?
I would like to have more creative charts and tables like in Powerpoint. I would also like to import PDFs and Excel files. Right now I can only import as a photo (i think) so fine print does not come over well. We include some detail in some of our print submissions and it is difficult to convert files and pull them in and make them look as good as the rest of the presentation.
Recommendations to others considering the product
This is by far the best solution I have found and I looked at several options. InDesign was too much for me although great. I do not want to design these myself! I like the great templates. We are always looking for creative and fresh. And for the price, I cannot beat it. Even my CEO is convinced!
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I am solving Marketing problems. How well we communicate and how it speaks of our quality and professionalism - and creativity. Internally, it has raised the bar. Our entire sales team has higher standards for our presentation and image now. What used to be HARD, is now pretty easy. We can spend more time on the content and less on the design. Bottom line, we are winning more jobs - I give Lucidpress some credit in that!
