Evaluating New Demo software

imageSeveral years ago, we bought a copy of Camtasia. It is the premiere demonstration software, but very expensive to put on several computers for occasional use, and relatively cumbersome for what it does. Definite learning curve!

Instead of buying a new copy of Camtasia, we’re evaluating what else might be available. Basically, I want something I can install on all of our marketing folks’ desktops without thinking about it, and then ask them to record quick demonstrations of use cases and special features of R7 Solutions’ premiere product, GeoIntelis.

It needs to be something that is super-simple to use but provides basic editing features to produce nice-looking, lightweight demonstrations.

What product is that?

Here are some we’re considering – and I’ll let you know when we choose one:
