Ten Most Significant Data Deployments for 2002 Includes Prism Visual Software

Jan. 27, 2003

Prism Visual Software, a firm just recognized as Accounting Today magazine's 2002 Technology Pacesetter, and as one of Accounting Technology magazine's Third-Party Stars was named by Aberdeen Group as the developer of one of the "Ten Most Significant Data Deployments of 2002."

While honored by this recognition on behalf of her firm, Lorraine Keating, CEO and founder of Prism, was not surprised by Aberdeen's conclusion. Keating said, "We work hard to ensure that the software solutions we develop meet our customers' real needs in new and often unexpected ways.

"The application is built on the framework of Softline AccountMate's AccountMate 6.0," Keating pointed out, "which is a powerful and flexible open source code accounting software system. AccountMate's scope and ease of use made it the natural foundation for our system.

Aberdeen Group, an IT market analysis and positioning service firm, headquartered in Boston with offices in New York and on the West Coast, selected Prism Visual Software for their annual Best Practice Report, "What Works: Ten Significant Data Deployments." Aiming to separate "rumor from fact," Aberdeen invited more than 50 mobile data technology developers and service providers to submit their most impressive single hand-held mobile data implementation customer success story from the past twelve months.

Aberdeen selected 10 case studies as the 10 most impressive implementations of 2002. Along with Prism's mobile "MiniMate" software, Aberdeen identified other exceptional implementation case studies from companies such as Hewlett-Packard, Symbol Technologies, and Sierra Wireless.

In addition to this latest recognition, Prism Visual Software was named one of ComputerWorld's 2002 Emerging Businesses to Watch reflecting a view about Prism's innovation and market leadership that validates Aberdeen's findings.

In looking for stand-out systems, Aberdeen noted that Prism's solutions offer savings and increase end-user productivity in a variety of ways including

* Efficient routing/dispatching

* Job costing

* Signature captured invoicing on site

* Reduction in paper tickets/invoices

* Inventory control, from warehouse to end-user

* Improved customer service

"Our understanding of the operations of businesses that route trucks or have field service technicians dynamically assigned on a daily basis, has enabled Prism to offer end-user clients both measurable cost savings along with award winning technology solutions that work," said Keating.
