As remote working trends continue to uptick, companies are having to pivot their operations to a successful format that is able to redefine collaboration, internal communication, and project management. While there are a number of applications and products that aim to do this, one tool is paving the way for the 90 million Microsoft Teams users to easily access these functions within the Teams ecosystem–introducing simpleshow video maker.
What is simpleshow Video Maker?
The SaaS tool, which is endeared by global Fortune 500 companies, higher education leaders, and individual users alike, was initially launched as an easy to use, simple text to video explainer video generation tool. Users simply select from a variety of pre-made templates to effectively simplify and communicate important information, such as company changes, product launches, meeting overviews, standard operating procedures, and more.
The video assets are hosted in cloud accounts and are able to be shared between enterprise users–giving teams the ability to productively add, edit, enhance, and collaborate on projects before finalizing and sharing them with the rest of the company. Even more appealing, the process is quick, and requires no video or tech experience on behalf of the user.
Bells and Whistles
Additional customizations also exist within simpleshow’s functional dashboard, such as accessibility enhancements (captions, voiceovers, and high contrast black and white graphics), grid overlays for aesthetically balanced video scenes, logo placement header thumbnails for branding consistency, an image gallery with over 18,000 images that are paired to AI-selected emphasis keywords.
Speaking of AI, the proprietary ‘explainer engine’ uses a combination of AI, semantic analysis, natural language stacks, and Amazon Polly powered automated voices to transform text documents, written storyboards, or uploaded PowerPoint into a video within minutes. For users wishing to add further customization and brand alignment, custom illustrations can be purchased and added to the company’s enterprise account for all team users to access and use.
The Evolution to Microsoft
Now, with those same founding characteristics, simpleshow video maker has pivoted its product to exist as a fully functional app integrated into Microsoft Teams. This means that the same award-winning SaaS capabilities are available to users logged in to their Teams environment. Users simply search and pin the app to their side dashboard for quick and easy access to the engine.
