We use it to comprehensively analyze all aspects of our fleet of road building equipment and tooling. Prism provides the advanced tools and techniques to manage our government's vital infrastructure assets in the most effective possible way.
1) It's that good. Full stop. 2) Practical considerations. I have based my entire section's databases around it 3) Their Customer Service is awesome. Real people who are really smart and always do what they say they will.
Very well suited for linking and querying financial and physical asset performance together. I have found nothing else that competes with Prism in providing the comprehensive customization, visual and industrial strength query tools in one easy to use package.
Make sure your computer has the physical goods to get the most from the software. I recommend a 64 bit version of Windows and at least 6 gigs of RAM as a good starting point.
I haven't had to use their Customer Service for technical help recently, but I have had nothing but positive experiences to date.
