- With World's Largest Presentation Database, Prezi Announces New Collaboration with Logitech and Expands Executive Team
Prezi, the presentation platform that helps people connect more powerfully with their audiences, today announced it now has more than 60 million users worldwide, that it has the world's largest public database of presentations--over 190 million public prezis-- and that its community's prezis have been viewed over one billion times.
To help its customers become even more effective presenters, Prezi also announced that it has entered into a new collaboration with Logitech, a leader in designing products that connect people to the digital experiences they care about. Finally, to ensure its continued success, Prezi announced it has hired two new executives--Jim Szafranski, chief operating officer (COO) and Jim Banister, Head of Product.
"Our worldwide community is creating and sharing their prezis in record numbers," said Peter Arvai, CEO and co-founder of Prezi. "Visual storytelling is key to the success of our customers, helping them stand out in an increasingly noisy world where bullet points have too often replaced meaning. By teaming up with Logitech, our community of millions of people using Prezi worldwide will be able to create and deliver even more impactful presentations."
60 Million Customers, 1 Billion Views
One of Prezi's fastest growing customer segments is business users looking for a more visual, conversational and powerful way to present--to help them land clients, train customers, and inspire audiences. Many teams within organizations such as Staples, Gensler, Lufthansa, Crunch Fitness, and Harris Computer Systems and others have switched from slides to Prezi, citing measurable increases in results.

Visual storytelling is key to the success of Prezi's customers. Based on the world's largest database of over 190 million public prezis, Prezi analyzed the most successful prezis to understand broader trends in presentation design and visual communications. The results confirm that presentations with more visual elements are more popular than text-heavy presentations, with the top prezis using more images, videos and animations than text, by a 6:1 ratio compared to all prezis.
