“A great tool to any business”

The fact that you can create a video in multiple languages and change it in a sec after you found a mistake or the information changed is a breeze. We stopped hassling around with making videos, having to take care of background, lighting, multiple runs, editing, etc. This is our way to go now, and we have already had clients wanting to use it for their own business.

CEMEX University Manager

"Synthesia is a great resource for Training & Communication initiatives"

At CEMEX University, we're using Synthesia to create explainer videos, where it's just easier, faster, and more cost-effective to use Synthesia than to record an actual person doing the explanation. Their great variety of avatars makes it easy to adapt it to most types of learning or communication initiatives, and the flexibility of producing the content in multiple languages has made Synthesia a go-to resource for many of our new programs.

"Great for training videos!"

We used to hire talent for our training videos. Each time we had to make a change, we had to re-hire talent. We can now re-generate training videos on demand, which means we can deliver our videos faster. We can produce more videos of higher quality.
