Digitalisation has long affected the explainer video market. DIY solutions for independent creation of short and easy-to-understand videos are becoming increasingly popular. With the integration of simpleshow video maker into the Microsoft Teams environment, simpleshow satisfies the needs of many users and takes the next logical step towards the New Work models.
Not that long ago, a friend of mine who also happens to be a sales manager at a large German car manufacturing company complained: “Long text segments, bullet points, and a picture or an infographic here and there – is there anything more boring than a PowerPoint presentation?” Sadly, that is the truth: Many companies still choose dry screen presentations when trying to convey complex information.
Presenting shouldn’t be boring!
The persuasive power of storytelling is already well known to a large part of the population. In the USA, there’s practically no way of getting around it when talking about business communication. And since entrepreneurial giant Jeff Bezos replaced all slide presentations with narrative memos, US companies have become aware of the potential of stories in a business context.
Anyone can learn storytelling – we promise!
Unfortunately, not all skilled team leaders, project managers, or marketing experts also happen to be good storytellers. But there is a great solution to this problem that’s already improving communication in numerous companies:
mysimpleshow video maker supports its users by providing them with predefined story templates so that they can simply develop stories on their own. These serve as the basis for short, animated videos. But it gets even better!
Animation, illustration, and video editing are not within the realm of your expertise? That’s not a reason to panic! Because the video maker takes over these tasks for you. A sophisticated AI automatically recognizes the relevant keywords of your story, finds the appropriate visualisation – including a meaningful arrangement of the illustrations – and animates them.
Subsequently, the tool also suggests appropriate background music and narrates the text of your story. Easy, right? All of this can happen only in a matter of a few minutes and at the push of a button. The only question left – how do you get there?
Here is how you can get access to simpleshow video maker in Microsoft Teams.
The access to more efficient communication may be already in your possession!
As part of the Office365 package, the collaboration software “Microsoft Teams” is essential to the communication processes within many companies. Large corporations especially value the smooth collaboration enabled by the platform.
