What do you like best?
Proclaim is by far the best presentation program for churches there. It offers a user-friendly interface, really well designed elements for slides and very good integrations as the bible on the screen, which allows you to integrate a verse on the slide with just write the passage text. In addition, they offer a remote control mobile app that can be used during presentations of musical letters, it can be downloaded from the google play store for android or app store for iphone. The letters can be brought directly from Song Select (by CCLI) and not having to type them. Proclaim can also store your presentation in the cloud, so you do not have to never use more than a USB stick, this is a very useful tool in a day like today. I also love that you have the possibility to can record the service and share it with other brethrens that could not attend to church.
What do you dislike?
The program is a bit expensive, but still you can have a free 30 day trial, so you may decide your mind. An inconvenience with this program is that it happened already that when a guest speaker brings his own .ppt powerpoint presentation on a flash drive this presented some little problems. The process you have to go through is to import and convert the powerpoint slides to images. It was not that possible because the slides were cut off at some parts deleting scriptures and other important text when converted to images, so what you must end up doing is run powerpoint software separately.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Many websites offer a free download of Proclaim. Proclaim most used versions are 1.8, 1.5 and 1.1. Proclaim is a Multimedia program type. The installation file name of the most common tool is ProClaim.exe. The real architect of this program without cost is Logos Bible Software. I preferably recommend anyone to download the program directly from the developer's website. You can have a free 30 day trial and no credit card is needed, I would reccomend anyone to use this option before purchasing the software to test if it will fit to what you church is needing. If you are already a designer, this program can be a very useful tool to can explode your creativity.
