When it comes to explaining complex concepts and ideas, slides and graphs rarely tell the whole story. To get clients and coworkers fully on board, you usually need to make your case in person. is a tool that people can use to record and share video presentations with people located remotely, anywhere in the world. gives you a way to give compelling presentations without being physically present in the same room as the people you’re speaking to. The presentations you can give through the look and feel exactly like the presentations you’d be giving in person, complete with slides, graphs, and face-to-face interaction. Unlike video chatting applications like Skype and GoToMeeting, however, doesn’t require multiple meeting participants to be online at the same time. As the presenter, you simply upload your slides, record a video of yourself explaining each slide, and share you entire presentation with anyone you like. The video your record will appear directly alongside the slides you’re presenting, and you can make minor edits to your video by using the editing tools available within the app. Click “Publish” when your completed presentation is ready to go, and will share a custom link with any recipients you choose. is just as useful for educators and HR representatives as it is for salespeople and freelancers. Business owners with remote workforces can use the app to update their employees on company changes without requiring that everyone be online at the same time, while busy salespeople can rely on the tool when pitching new prospects and presenting completed projects to longtime clients.
