Customer Testimonials

“PRISM allows for a seamless flow of information between our finance and project community. It also offers a lot of visibility to stakeholders, which includes all groups in the company. Every department, every discipline at one point or another has a project that requires some form of capital. So now stakeholders can see what’s happening with projects.”

Luc Vandamme
Senior Director of Project Stewardship, Barrick

“AECOM was able to reduce their project controls cost per project by 25% from 2014 to 2016 through a combination of process improvement and system implementation, of which PRISM was a big part.”

Craig Boudreau
Director of Project Controls for the Oil & Gas Division, AECOM

“Making the cultural shift to PRISM has allowed us to get a much more integrated view. It’s a significant benefit and we sometimes forget that benefit because it has become so inherent in what we do. It’s like having a smartphone. You take it for granted and forget what life was ever like without one!”

Guy Phillips
Head of Programme Controls, Transport for London

“You can really tell that PRISM was designed by people who understand cost control and cost management. Unlike other systems that are subsets of financial system, this system really delivers what a cost system should. The ability to quickly upload and download information is definitely one of its strengths. I’ve seen many systems that are enormously time consuming to use and input data. PRISM’s strength is that updating takes a relatively short time and you can use less resources that normal to drive the system. That means you spend more time analyzing and controlling.”

Romeo Ballesteros
Senior Cost Controller, Ausenco

“This system totally aligns with our business model and vision moving forward to become ‘best-in-class/excellence in PC’. In the modern construction world, data management and integration leveraging modern technology is required to deliver successful projects. We believe PRISM is a key piece of that journey towards achieving our goal.”
