“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!”
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.”
