Table Features:

Vendors with

  • 5+ employees on  Linkedin
  • At least 2 AI features
  • Referenced by at least 1 enterprise

We divided solutions to 3 types:

  • *Template-based: These solutions are suitable for more or less generic presentations, where the content is ready-made and you don’t particularly want to waste time preparing templates.
  • **Customizable: These platforms still offer templates. Yet, they allow more flexibility and user agency in designing presentations and customizing the slides.
  • ***Interactive: Interactive presentation makers are useful in creating presentations that include interactive elements like quizzes, polls, and animations that engage the audience. Some providers under this category also offer services such as generating presentations on command; similar to use of a GPT.
