"Interactive Animated Presentations"

Comments: Interactive storytelling in presentations took shorter time than before.

Pros: Powtoon is simple, interactive and provides all basic functions for motion graphics to be used as a presentation.

Cons: It's web-based to due which browser got very heavy when working on larger projects.

Alternatives Considered: Microsoft PowerPoint

Reasons for Switching to PowToon: Due to visual characters and animation as compared to simple textual animation.

"Powtoons is Amazing"

Comments: I have created dozens of videos for internal comms, advertising, recruiting and training. It has made my life so easy and with great reward and outcome.

Pros: This is a super simple app to create fun and vibrant communications pieces either with cartoons or video.

Cons: I think customer service could be much better. I don't think I've ever gotten ahold of a live person.

Alternatives Considered: Filmora

Reasons for Choosing PowToon: I didn't exactly make a total switch because I still need to edit some video before dropping it in to Powtoons, but the functionality of Powtoons and its ability to drag and drop anything into the video at any time is so cool. And it has a huge database of photos, video, and other tidbits.

"Great Video Making Tool"

Comments: This is a great overall online video maker. I have been using it for over five years and each year the company continues to add new animated characters as well as new features. Customer service is excellent and very helpful. I definitely recommend Powtoon!

Pros: This software lets you choose how creative you want to be. Struggling for ideas? Powtoon has many templates. Want to create something from scratch? Powtoon has you covered there as well with tons of videos, images and characters

Cons: There was initially a bit of a learning curve to use, but lots of tutorials are available to help you.

"Powtoon"

Comments: Not great they say they would be creating new content and we have had the service for 6 months with absolutely no content updates

Pros: You can put multiple layers of text on one slide and customize where it will show up.

Cons: They have absolutely zero content. They say they have marketing videos but they are only 10 seconds long and random. We no longer use this software.

Alternatives Considered: Promo.com

Reasons for Switching to PowToon: We ended up purchasing promo as well because promo has a wide range and variety of videos and music that works a lot better than Powtoon. Very disappointed in Powtoon.

"attractive and professional slides and videos!"

Comments: I save a lot of time and effort doing slides on this software and looks so professional!

Pros: I don't need to have programming skill to make animations and professional videos, is easy and instinctive to use.

Cons: I wish there were more avatars and more variety of animations and the option to adjust and share at tiktok.

Alternatives Considered: Microsoft PowerPoint

Reasons for Switching to PowToon: because it have 3d options and animations in an easier way to use.
